Option to Import Volume Automation as Clip Gain in Import Session Window

I'd love to be able to open an AAF/OMF or even an older Pro Tools session and have the automation come in as clip gain. The option should allow me to coalesce automation into any existing clip gain. I have a macro to coalesce selected clips to clip gain in Artist Control but it's a two step process right now.

Quickly translate the documentation into other languages than English.

Quickly translate the documentation into other languages than English. The translation of Avid are quality, but it's really too long now. We buy a multilingual software. Documentation must be multilingual and updated, as in Steinberg competitors Presonus. Magix. For example, new features in version 12 (.1, .2, .3, .4) are not translated. One also notes: often translated documents (in the case of pro tools 11) refer to ...more »

MIDI Software or Hardware for Artist Series

It would be awesome if someone makes an AAX/RTAS/Stand Alone Plugin/Software compatible with Novation Automap, or Mackie C4 Pro... For Artist Series... A programmable bridge plugin/software Between Artist Mix/control and Midi ports. Similar to Mackie C4 Pro, but for Avid Artis controllers.

Pro Tools 12 user interface lagginess during playback

During audio playback in Pro Tools 12 when simply moving the mouse cursor in the edit window the meters and counter even the playback cursor will stop until the mouse cursor has stopped moving. On certain Avid plugins like Compressor/Limiter 3 is open all the metering and counter, everything becomes slow and laggy.

Command-Z (Undo) & Delete Problem

Something I've noticed for a long time has to do with the Command-Z "Undo" function and the recording and removal of sequential takes (like a VO: e.g. VO_01, VO_02, VO_03, etc.) for editing later. I'm not sure if this falls under the category of a feature request or problem to remedy or a bug. There are TWO issues and please try to stay with me during this seemingly convoluted explanation. FIRST: if you've finished ...more »

Pro Tools settings across multiple Windows users

I work in a Windows environment where we have dozens of Pro Tools rigs on Windows 7 computers. We run into problems when we change a sound card on a computer. Even though we set up the new sound card I/O settings under our Administrator account, each Windows user that logs in will still have the old I/O settings. Is there a way for Pro Tools to look to a "Global" settings file for ALL Windows users? Or have a "Default ...more »

Sudden PT 12 Quits

For reasons unknown, CPU spikes and resulting quits still plague this edition. Computer specs are adequate with a 2013 Mac Pro 3.7 ghz 12 gb ram. Also the crash can affect the clock and throw the timing off in a session file. Too many CPU spikes has resulted in session file corruption. Usually happens at the most creative point in the process!

the option "automatically Copy files on Import" under processing in PT preference should be Checked as default. Because PT's default is to have this option unchecked, sometimes when PT crashes and it's database corrupts and preference resets, it will unchecked this option without the user's consent.
