Apply track color on audio import, based on user definablekey words

This could be a check box part of the import audio dialogue and would effectively search for, user definable, key words for each audio file imported and apply a track color based on those key words. For example I could apply the key words: “kick”, “kik”, “snare”, “snare top”, “snare bottom”, “snr”, “snares”, “rim”, “stick” To the color red. Meaning that any audio file containing those words would be imported and it’s ...more »

Sort selected tracks by track color

This command would effectively sort selected tracks by their track color. The order of those colors could either be user defined or follow the rows on the color pallette. I think it would be useful feature for initial session organisation. Currently when I import audio for a song, I color the kick, snare, hi hat, ride all one color but they are usually spread out vertically across all the tracks in a session in the order ...more »

Link Mix/Edit Group Enables preference

I was just informed that in Pro Tools 12.8.2, going forward, AVID programmers have abandoned the link feature altogether in preferences because they can't figure out how to fix it.. This means now you have to continuously enable groups every time you want to edit grouped tracks and then disable to avoid mixing grouped faders unwantingly. Please vote to make them figure out how to fix it. What's next?

Keyboard Shortcut for Link Track and Edit Selection

Would be useful when selecting in the edit window. Not having to leave your selection to go click on the button.

Need to hear the track that I am going to punch into

If you have 'track input monitoring' on, it seems to me that you should be able to 'monitor the input' of the track, regardless of whether it is in play or record mode. And when we are in 'track input monitoring' mode, it seems nuts that we are not able to hear the track media from the track that we are about to punch in on. I understand that sometimes you don't what to hear it, but the option to hear the track should ...more »

Smart tool with selector and grabber only

I would like to have another smart-tool-mode without the trim tool. I almost never use the trim tool doing all editing with keyboard shortcuts (a and s for clip edges), but I constantly have to use selecting und grabbing tool. Getting your cursor at the beginning or end of a clip can somertimes be very fiddly, while the smart tool changes to the trim tool whenever you come close to the edge of a clip.

Allow Consolidate Notes command to work in Velocity view

In the Edit window, it's convenient to work with MIDI in velocity view most of the time. I can't think of any reason why we should have to switch to Notes view to consolidate.
