Link/Sync Option for Nudge & Grid

Most of the time, when I change the grid size, I also ideally want the nudge values to match that new grid. I don't want to take away the option for them to be different, but it'd be great to have a little 'Link' icon I could toggle, whereby if I change the Grid to, say, 8ths, Nudge automatically changes to 8ths too. Would also help to get around the fact that the grid +/- shortcuts don't seem to work on my MacBook ...more »

Enable Typing-In of Pan / Slider / Automation Values

Sliders & dials are great, sure, but sometimes it can be tough to get exactly the desired value, even when pressing Cmd. A lot of plugins allow you to simply type in values, so why not provide the same option when I click on the panning numbers? Typing in L50, R100 or whatever would be a faster option. Similarly, with sliders and automation spots, it'd be great to see an option where I can right-click and select 'Type ...more »

Easier group modification

Add these options when right-clicking a track or a selection of multiple tracks:

- Add to Group > [show group list, highlighting groups already assigned to the track(s)];

- Remove from Group > [show groups currently assigned to this track] – this is greyed out if the track(s) hasn't been assigned to any group.

MIDI Editor Window track record enable button

In the MIDI editor, you can solo and mute the track you're working on, but you can't record-enable it. You also can't tell if it may already be record-enabled. It would really help my workflow to be able to quickly pop into record without flipping back to either the mix or edit windows to know what track(s) are currently record enabled and be able to modify that from here.

 

Thanks!

Extra (and bigger than normal memory locations) ruler for songstructure

I really like the look and size of the Logic markers or marker ruler (faster and better to see). I would love to have a ruler just for Songstructure with no effect on the standard markers. custom size, custom colors and the ability to "jump" to those markers.

Command+W shortcut to close active plugin window

Currently if you have any "extra" windows open (Plugins, Markers, System Usage, etc) you can press Ctrl+Opt+Cmd+W to close ALL extra windows. Cmd+W only closes the Edit and Mixer windows. But while you're tweaking a plugin's parameters, THAT window is active instead (Edit & Mixer window buttons are greyed out) so Cmd+W should just close THAT plugin's window, rather than the Edit window, shouldn't it? If you open a ...more »

Frequency based Strip Silence

Since there is a lot of bleed when tracking drums and most drums have pretty different frequency content it would be great to have the ability to non destructively E.Q. before running strip silence. For instance, on snare drums with a lot of quiet grace notes it would be great to exclude all of the lower frequency content that would include the kick but not the snare. High hats are also a nuisance in this regard and could ...more »

Clearer Beat Ruler for Compound Time Signatures

My understanding of compound time signatures is that they're distinct from others because they group notes into 3s (e.g. 12/8 differs mainly from 6/4 because it contains 4 groups of 3 notes, rather than 3 groups of 2; same with 6/8 vs 3/4, etc.). The Pro Tools rulers don't seem to reflect that. Instead, for 6/8, 9/8, 12/8, etc., the dividing lines still group quarter notes into 2s or 4s, putting the emphasis on different ...more »
