Easier moving plug-ins between tracks of different channel depth

Improve easy-of-use when moving or copying a plug-in from a track to another with a different number of channels: - if the destination track have fewer channels, automatically convert the plug-in format, for example: - when moving from a stereo to a mono track, convert "multichannel" to "mono" or "multi-mono" to "mono" (in this case keep Left settings, drop right settings -- or even ask which channel settings to keep) ...more »

Retain added controllers

It's great that you can add controllers to tracks in the Midi Editor. However, it needs to be enhanced so that if you navigate to a different track that doesn't have that controller added and then you navigate back to the track for which you originally added the controller, it is retained.

On-board or card support for AVB in MTRX

Many Avid customers have existing investments in AVB that they would like to preserve as they migrate to the MTRX, which presently only supports Dante. A firmware upgrade that allows the Brooklyn FPGA to additionally support AVB, or a separate AVB card, would be desirable.

Simple MIDI protocol for controlling external devices

Controlling external devices is not a easy thing in Pro Tools. Of course, there are some protocols supported like MTC, MMC, Pre (more or less...) but every controller protocol is kind of closed one, not usable for everyone, Of course, I can understand that due to marketing purposes Avid does not want to share these with everyone, but it can be done without such sacrifice:-) Just imagine how all those smart devices for ...more »

Generating Timecode/MTC when loop playback - old known bug

Recently, I came to a problem with generating timecode or MTC when loop playback. Everyone can check that Pro Tools (HD) does not generate correct timecode which reflects to real position in session, but after first loop it just continue increment address position in timecode/MTC. For example: select 10 seconds from 00:01:00:00 to 00:01:10:00. On the first iteration it will generate proper addresses. On the second iteration ...more »

Snapshot automation in Space plugin

There is a bug when i send my session to other facility with SPACE plugin, I think is because he not recognize the right location of impulse response IRs. I use alway snapshot and when other guys open my sessions, or viceversa, Space have all the snapshot empty. I try to save the plugin setting and send but is the same. I think will be better if IRs can be saved with the setting or the Irs can stay inside the plugin, ...more »

Add "Link" by Ableton

Rewire is the way many of us pro tools producers make the best of working Ableton into our sessions. The problem is 3rd party plugins are disabled. "Link" looks to be the future and Pro Tools should be first to add it.

Notepad and task list

I'd LOVE to see a stock feature added to Pro Tools that allows a session to have a notebook within it that lists lyrics, chords, mics used, special info about tracks, and has a TO DO list for the session. I share sessions often with other artists and producers, and would LOVE to have notes embedded in the session so that they are there for anyone who gets the session data. NOT a third party plugin, but a Pro Tools feature. ...more »

Need chords in charts! Score Editor!

I just spent two very long and tedious hours of my life inserting chords on the chords line of my session in PT 12. How stupid that I could not just copy and paste the repeating chords from one verse to the next, etc. Also, I could not copy and paste a single chord, or write it in manually. I had to click on the chords insert arrow, turn to my second screen because I could not move the dialog box to the screen directly ...more »

Ability to drag i/o assignments in the same way as sends/inserts

Dragging a plug-in or send across from one track to the next is easy and quick. Why can't we do this for i/o assignments?

File Relinking - Parent / Clip Name Bug

If an audio file in a Pro Tools session is renamed externally (i.e. using Windows explorer, or Finder) Pro Tools can be forced to link to the renamed file using the 'Find by File ID' option on reopening the session. Although this is fine for the short term, it presents a bit of problem. When the 'Find by File ID' option is used the parent name of the audio file updates, as it should, however the clip name of the audio ...more »
