Pro Tools bugs

MIDIServer patch file, bank, or mode information not available for this MIDI instrument

This error will appear twice, then the patch select window will open, displaying only numbers

Please fix the bug breaking midi patch names ASAP. I really care about having my midi patches selectable by name in pro tools.

S6 touchscreen keyboard

Add a touchscreen keyboard that users can touch the screen for the letter they want to type. This could be used to name tracks, i/o, memory location etc. It would enable the users to finally get rid of the keyboard as they would be able to do it from the surface it self.

If cell phones can have a touchable keyboard to write texts, emails ect.. I'm sure it can be done for the S6 too.

Wave Editor Window / Frame (like exist for MIDI)

It would be handy (at least for us?) to have something like a wave editor window (like existing for MIDI on MIDI tracks) allowing a more "focussed" work (optically and ergonomically) down to sample based editing, with i.e. dB / gain / bit scale on the left (where the keyboard is in the MIDI window) and a scale behaviour on more details, with menus / functions directly accessible to work with wave forms / audio data down ...more »

Parameter halo/glow in Pro Tools when touching encoder

Eucon controllers use their touch sensitive encoders for multiple functions - unlike e.g. the Icon series that has dedicated EQ/DYN-sections. This makes the user spend more time verifying that the encoder currently touched corresponds to the intended parameter you want to adjust from the control surface. If Pro Tools were able to display a graphical halo/glow around the parameter immediately upon touch, work flow would ...more »

Pro Tools 12: Dashboard And Create, Sometimes The Templates Are Grayed Out And Can't Be Clicked...

Sometimes when I start Pro Tools 12, the Templates in Dashboard are grayed out. It may only be when I toggle from "Recent" to "Create". Workaround: Uncheck and Check "Create From Template". (Also, is it just me, or have you noticed that Dashboard's GUI doesn't match the rest of the PT GUI? It almost looks like something from Windows 10.)

Input Monitor Status LED is missing from Pro Tools 12.0

The Auto/Input Only Monitoring Button to the right of the Transport is missing. Workaround: Go to Track and toggle between Auto/Input Only Monitoring. (You can also use Alt/Option+K, but you won't see what mode you're in.)

Bring Back Bounce To Disk Folder View Like Before Pro Tools 11...

Before PT 11 on Windows, in 10 and before, when you brought up the Bounce Dialogue there was no place to name the file, but, when you clicked the Bounce Button, you were presented with a dialogue box that allowed you to navigate to where you wanted the file to be saved, showed you all the files in that location and gave you a box to name the file. You could even click on a file in the folder and either overwrite it or ...more »

Pro Tools 12 On Windows Minimizing Pro Tools Means You Can't Easily Maximize It...

On Windows, when you minimize Pro Tools, you cannot click the PT Icon on the Taskbar and maximize PT, nothing happens. Alt+Tab to toggle between screens also doesn't maximize PT. Workaround: Hover the mouse over the PT Icon to bring up the Peek for PT, then right click on the Peek and choose Restore or Maximize.

D-Verb pitch shift in reverb tail

D-Verb was once an allround and very usable Reverb. Since a few years Avid build in a tail pitch shift. The pitch is shifting down at the and of the reverb tail. It gives a whining sort of blur as (side) effect. This makes D-Verb unusable for most music. Please take it out or introduce a on/of knob!

Track View shortcut bug

Hi! One of my preferred and most used shortcuts in Pro Tools, ICON and S6 surfaces is the ability to change my track view depending on which parameter I touch on the mix window. For example: Control + Command + fader click - displays volume automation for that selected track. I'm constantly using this shortcut for volume, pan and sends automation for ALL MY TRACKS with the Option Key also pressed. Example: Control ...more »

Pro Tools deleting Quicktime immediately after bounce

I am using Pro Tools 11.3.1 on a Mac Mini and a 15 inch Mac Book Pro both running Yosemite. I have saved a new session, tried on multiple machines, created new audio files and used a different video file and Pro Tools deletes the Quicktime immediately after the bounce completes. This is a bug that can seriously alter deadlines and client relations. Anyone else experience this bug?

Fader shift-touch is unreliable in MC/Artist Mix

Shift-touching a fader to set level to 0 dB is not consistent in the Artist/MC Mix. If you shift-touch the fader really fast (your touch is very quick and light), it works. If your touch MOVES the fader when shift-touching it, even slightly, or the touch lasts longer than a fraction of a second, it doesn't work. In this case, the DAW (in my case Logic) still registers it as shift-touch and the fader in the UI moves ...more »

Relink improvements

Most of the times, audio files of a session go offline because a parent folder is renamed or moved. For example, you can have a project split in different sessions (i.e. several songs of an album). It's not unfrequent to have data and audio imported from other sessions of the same project and having audio files referenced to different folders than the current session folder. When the whole project is archived (the ...more »
