S3 features

Bank with attached trackpad or mouse

There is an input on the back of the S3 for a mouse but it doesn't integrate with the S3 in a useful fashion within ProTools. It would be amazing to be able to bank around on the S3 with an attached mouse scrollwheel or even better, imagine being able to use a trackpad (apple magic trackpad) and use swiping scroll gestures to bank. It would be like scooting your chair down the console!

nested VCA spill workflow improvements

When using a VCA within a VCA, it would be great if the behaviour followed the parent/child nesting model. For example. In my main drum VCA, I have sub VCA's for snare, kick, close mics, far mics etc. I add the sub VCA's to the main drum VCA so that when I spill the main drum VCA, I have my sub-groups all laid out. When I enter a sub group to edit, and then return (double clicking select on far right fader) it takes me ...more »

Can we have layouts with more than 16 channels?

It would be great to be able to create layouts with more than 16 channels. For example, let's say I have 24 tracks of drums/percussion. I'd like them to be all in a single layout, where I can Bank/Nudge through only the drum tracks within my layout.

 

Currently, I would need two different layouts and I would have to remember what track is in which layout etc.

S3 Add "fader button" for Muting Fader Movement.

Because S3 faders are motorized, they move to follow automation when playing back and re- cording (when the track is set to an automation read or write mode, and not Off). During critical listening passes, the sound of the fader motors and their automated movements may be dis- tracting. You can temporarily shut off (or mute) motorized fader movement using the Fader Mute switch. In the DIGI 003 there is that option.

Clicking on a Knob of a Freq EQ switch it to the Q.

Clicking on a Knob of a freq parameter switch the function to the Q parameter of the attached band.

It could be the same for the Dock.

S3 Auto Talkback

It's great to have the talkback functionality on a Pro Tools S3. It would be even better, when it would be possible to mute talkback automatically when Pro Tools is recording and open it when in play or stopped.

Flip parameters with control surface

Make it possible to flip parameters for example the gain of en eq-band by pressing shift and option/alt and touching the correspondent knob or fader on the control surface. Just like if you shift option-click control points in the EQ graph.

Add Eucon option to disassociate keyboard modifiers from control surface

Please add an option to disassociate the computer keyboard modifier keys from Eucon control surfaces. I am often recording/editing on a Pro Tools session at the same time the engineer is operating the control surface. If I am using the OPTION key and he touches a fader at the same time, it jumps to 0dB.

spill or group busses and I/Os when configuring sends or I/O

in a session with considerable amount of busses it's virtually impossible to assign busses on sends or I/O's in a reasonably convenient matter. This could be hugely improved by spilling them across the lcds, or first browsing 'subgroups' (e.g. bus 1-20, bus 21-22, ...) before browsing the actual busses. Or maybe a combination, just like when inserting plug-ins (which works very nicely)

add the link switches to the panning encoders

Right now if you want to change link/inverse pan/inverse rear/ F-/R inverse status, you have to do it in the pan window with the mouse. It would great to have to assigned to some of the sel/in buttons or even some extra encoders so you can access them from the S3 as well
