Color Options Expanded

It would be great to be able to have the background of an audio file match the color coding of the track while keeping the wave form black in color (to make editing wave forms easier, while still associating it with the the track they came from). Another option is to have a color coded line that is above the wave form that matches the color coding of the track and has the clip name in it, while having the background ...more »

PT 12 won't open SDII (sd2) files

Pro Tools 12 can no longer translate Sound Designer II audio files to wav or aiff. And I can't use PT 11 with El Capitan. That means that I can no longer open my old files. People call and want to pay me to work on their old songs and I have to say "No, I can't!" The only decent translator is Logic Pro X! Yes, Apple can do it and Avid can't. It's unacceptable to me that I can't access old Pro Tools files. How hard ...more »

Add Windows 10 support in Pro Tools 12

Kensington Expert Mouse Trackball - PT 12.4 doesn't recognize any programming on the additional mouse buttons (works fine with Win 10/PT 11.3.2)

Mapped network drives are not visible from within PT 12.4 (they work fine with Win 10/PT 11.3.2)

Often crashes & hangs on exit

Support for reporting record state

As I use the same room for recording and playback I want to be able to automatically mute a track as soon as I hit record in Pro Tools. Sound Radix has a free plugin called Muteomatic witch could do that if only Pro Tools (or AAX?) supported reporting of record state.

Pro Tools bugs

Audition path does not work with alt monitor button on Omni IO

This is a bug when using Pro Tools 12.4 with an Omni IO. The Audition path ( in Setup > IO Setup > Output ) is set to the designated monitor output. When toggling the 'alt' button on the front panel of the Omni IO whilst in the import audio dialog window, the auditioned audio will remain being sent to the Main speakers connected to physical output 1 and 2 in stead of the Alt speakers, in my case connected to output 7 ...more »

Third party plugins updates through Avid's Application Manager

It would great if Avid would allow third party plugin developers to handle their updates through Avid's Application Manager. All updates could conveniently be done from within Protools. Power to the user!

Pro Tools bugs

MIDI Editor and MIDI Event Editor keyboard commands broken

PT12.4... The keyboard commands to open the MIDI Editor and MIDI Event Editor are broken. The Window Menu flashes twice in quick succession but neither window opens. I've checked in OS X Preferences>Keyboard>Shortcuts but nothing is clashing. Note: I'm using an Apple British keyboard.

Notification / Beep when finished rendering, bouncing, freezing etc

If I'm bouncing or freezing a large selection of tracks then the computer will be working away for ages. So I'l go off and do something else. Check emails, browse etc. It would be nice if Pro Tools gave an audible notification when its done its work. Otherwise I won't know its done and will lose valuable time as I get distracted with something else. Ideally you would have settings so that it the notification only kicked ...more »

Pro Tools Crashes with Templates

Pro Tools 12.4.0 crashes every time I'm trying to create a session from a template. This template is located OUTSIDE the root folder (Documents - Pro Tools - Session Templates). If the template is located within the 'Session Templates' directory, then Pro Tools can successfully create the session. I've tried saving the original session as a template using PT12 with no luck. EDIT: another successful method is changing ...more »

Artist Series bugs

Plugin window does not close on exit

Even with the box ticked in the EUCON settings, the plugin window will not close when backing out back into the track view "home" screen. The plugin window will OPEN when calling it from an Artist Control, but it will not CLOSE when backing out of it like it's supposed to.

Artist Series features

Input monitoring toggle

This was there on the Command 8. Now that even "vanilla" Pro Tools has is, and since it's there in the free PT Control iPad app, make it accessible via the Artist Series of controllers too. Put it next to the other soft buttons in track view - "Select", "Mute", "Record Arm", "Solo", and add "Input". This feature isn't even there in the soft keys.

S3 features

Avid S3 channel to follow channel selection by clicking a plugin with the mouse or the select key as normal

Currently the workflow for the S3 is to click select on the S3 channel then hit insert and select what plugin we wish to control with the top 16 encoders. If the first insert is selected on channel 1 and we want to control the first insert on channel 2 then we hit the select key on channel 2 of the S3 and so on..... This works however there is not a day goes past where I don't find myself getting confused and making ...more »

Bounce dialog default file name is not highlighted

When bouncing to disk the default file name for the bounce is not highlighted. Since ProTools 11 the default file name in the Bounce dialog is not highlighted and must be clicked into where prior to PT11 the default file name was highlighted and immediately editable from the keyboard for potential renaming. When working in post this has prolonged Bounce workflows costing users more time which adds up over the course of ...more »
