Drag&Drop + Copy&Paste of SoftKeys For Quick Rearrangement in EuControl

It takes a lot of time setting up SoftKeys. Especially because one can only edit them one at a time. When I want to adjust the layout of SoftKeys to fit my workflow better, I need to delete a SoftKey and in that place, set up a completely new key from scratch. But the key I'm looking for is there, just on another page. I cannot copy and paste it, which would save me a lot of time. I need to create it from scratch. Also, ...more »

Search and Filter for Commands in EuControl

It takes a lot of time setting up SoftKeys. It would be nice if this time-consuming process could be made simpler and faster. For example, EuCon is very powerful and covers probably hundreds of features. Instead of having to know where a function is in the menu hierarchy, a find as you type would be great! This way, you don't have to search through all the menus, just type a word and the list filters by this word and ...more »

Mix Scenes / Automation Scenes

Pro Tools would benefit from having recallable mix "scenes" (or Automation parameter scenes) available within a single session. Users should be able to generate and store an arbitrary number of recallable scenes. When a scene is recalled, the faders, pans, send, plug-in settings/bypass, etc all change to their saved vales. This feature can allow for a number of significant workflow improvements. It would allow: -Alternate ...more »

Batch Fades window doesn't appear with Paste to Fill Selection

New batch fades window from 12.3 is great, but the Paste to Fill Selection command (for example with room tone or a loop) doesn't summon the new Batch Fades window, it brings up the old one and you have no control over fade in/outs. If you bring up the new Batch Fades window, and set the preferences for fade in outs (Create new fade-ins and durations etc) apply as set when creating Batch Fades with Paste to Fill Selection. ...more »

Loudness track

Izotope have a plugin that analize the program and show the line of the loudness program. i like if ther will be something similar in protools.

Export selected clips as new session

For example I intend to make a song "A". I create session then create instrument or audio track. I start sketching some ideas

And in the play process often I born completed ideas that do not fit the song "A" for some reason but it can be great idea for song "B". Select clip(s) and "Export selected clips as New Session" option would be great))

Space's Snapshots overwrite existing automation

when a track with the Space plug-in is in a latch mode and during playback it it passes a 'snapshot' (i.e. the plug-in parameter) automation point, it will start writing automation to all the plug-ins parameters. When in touch/preview mode, it will also indicate the parameters have changed. I guess it's because the snapshot recalls and thereby 'touches' automation to all the plug-ins parameters. This means that you ...more »

Undo history is cleared when a Commit event is purged in PT 12.5.1

1) Set the Levels of Undo to 8 in Setup > Preferences > Operations (so the issue is quick to produce)

 

2) Create a track and some audio

 

3) Commit the track (there should be a Commit event in the undo history now)

 

4) Nudge the clip repeatedly while viewing the undo history

 

Note that when the Commit event is cleared, the complete undo history is gone.

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

S3 changing auto mode on a channel twice requires double tapping the sel button most of the time

If you want to change the auto mode of a channel twice in a row, you have to double tap instead of single tap the corresponding sel button twice instead of once 95% of the time. In combination with the lack of proper visual feedback on the s3 this is very annoying.

Improved visual feedback of the automation mode buttons

When touching a fader during playback, the according auto mode button in the right side softkey section of that channel starts to blink. It would be great if this would also work when playback is stopped. It would also be great if this would work for the trim button as well. Of course this is no subsitute for a proper automation mode indicator on the lcds, but it would already be helpful.

Artist transport: allow swapping shift and workstation button

Since the artist transport seems to be intended as a right handed device, it would make much more sense to have the shift key where the workstation key is. That way you could easily press the shift key with your thumb in combination with any other key. Right now you have to go through some plastic surgery first before you can use the transport single-handed in a convenient way. For now I m using it left-handed which has ...more »

Alt click for volume fader in the import audio window

In the import audio window there is a fader which adjusts the volume of the prelistened audio files.

This fader has no db labelling and it´s time consuming to bring it back in the 0 db position.

It would be a good idea to have the same alt click feature like in the mix window to bring this fader back in the 0 db def position.
