Pro Tools Track Lock

Stage: Active

Campaign: Pro Tools features

-Implement the ability to lock - individual or group track heights. -In this way you could keep a set of tracks visible, but in MINI size for example and adjust other track groups or individual tracks as desired. -This would be most useful in postproduction editing and mixing work with medium or large sessions when the show / track hide in memory location window is undesired. -In post production editing the editor is ...more »

PT 11 @48kHz Add MP3 wrong sample rate and length

Stage: Active

Campaign: Pro Tools bugs

In Pro Tools 11 with a 48 kHz session, when bouncing to WAV and mp3 at the same time, the resulting mp3 is at 44.1 kHz and reports its length incorrectly (a few seconds short). Obviously, the mp3 sample rate cannot be the same as the session rate for rates above 48 kHz. But it should be for 44.1 and 48 kHz sessions. A drop-down menu should be provided to choose the target rate at least for high rate sessions, and preferable ...more »

New Track from Sends or Outputs also creates Master Fader

Stage: Active

Campaign: Pro Tools features

I tend to have a master fader for most if not all of my busses. It would be handy if, when creating a track from the send assignments drop down, you could check a box to also automatically create a named and assigned master fader. So, I want to create eg a drum subgroup, I select my drum tracks, shift-alt, click on an output and choose new. I choose a stereo aux and name it 'Drums' in the window...PT creates the named ...more »

When you goto bounce, online or offline, and navigate to any folder to bounce, choose or change bounce destination...

Restore previous selection shortcut broken on Windows

Stage: Active

Campaign: Pro Tools bugs

Ctrl+Alt+Z, which should restore previous selection is broken in windows (at least in windows 7 64 bit). The OSX counterpart works well and I miss it while working under windows.

En passent, a display/hide clip name shortcut in windows would be useful, it works fine on OSX, I don't see why it doesn't exist in windows.

Mbox 2 Pro Drivers NOT really stable under Mavericks

Stage: Active

Campaign: Pro Tools bugs

Avids (Digidesign) firewire drivers are literally the bomb. If any changes occur on the FW buss, including spinning down a drive, I get a kernel panic. Supposedly approved for use with PT11HD and a Late 2013 r MacBook Pro under Mavericks, this has ben nothing short of a disaster for both me & a client. My current workaround, is to have the MBox 2 "Pro" first on the chain, with my library drives attached and set to NEVER ...more »

Automation written to entire length of the session

Stage: Active

Campaign: Pro Tools features

Idea Thumbnail

"The values of all previewing controls have been written to the entire length of the session. This command is undoable." It'd be so wonderful if there were a way to get this warning even with the "Suppress Automation Write To… Warnings" checked in preferences. I don't want to click away a dialogue every single time I use automation, but I do want to know if I blast automation on a dialogue track across the whole timeline ...more »

Improve SSL setup at avid.com

Stage: Active

Campaign: Misc

Idea Thumbnail

the avid website has a very poor SSL/security setup (see result in attached screen shot). They should improve it because their clients share important data with them (pws, ilok.acount info, credit card info etc. etc.)

I surely don't want to read about user databases hacked in the future.

Some login pages at AVID even send name and passwords in cleartext without any encryption. Not a good idea.

Ability to change PT11 mix buffer size

Stage: Active

Campaign: Pro Tools features

By default PT11 makes the mix buffer 1024 samples. With very long latency plugins, this can mount up to being a problem at mix down. There is little hit on CPU changing to 512 samples, and it halves the latency, effectively doubling your delay compensation resulting in less lag between changing plugin setting and hearing a result. The new record buffer being separate from the mix buffer is a great idea other than this. ...more »

Copy fades from one clip to another/others

Stage: Active

Campaign: Pro Tools features

There's not currently a way to copy fade length and type from one clip and paste it to another or others. This would be especially useful to sound designers who want to layer ambient sounds, or replace sounds without using Region Replace. I'm looking for a keystroke to copy either the top fade or the tail fade--or both!- from one clip to the next without having to manually emulate what I've done elsewhere.

-9173 ProTools ran out of CPU power during real time bounce 11.2

Stage: Completed

Campaign: Bugs - Fixed

With minimal plugins and 2% total CPU displayed on the System Usage meter AAE -9173 abruptly cancels a real-time bounce stating ProTools ran out of CPU power yet offline bounce yields no such error. One DUC user pulled all 3rd party plugins out of the AAX folder with the same results. Rolled back to 11.1.3 and can bounce real time with no issue. 11.2.x problem.

A clean/breaking tube sim. preamp module as a FX

Stage: Active

Campaign: Eleven Rack features

A quality clean/breaking tube simulated preamp, maybe with an EQ, as a FX, would give all the clean amps a needed push to stand up with the dirty amps. It would take the big gab away in volume difirence. I think we're missing an intermediary and it can in that problem allso be dificult to make smooth breaking jazz rock/blues clean sounds.
