Title pretty much sums it up. In Pro Tools 11 and up please allow the ability to edit a Marker's place on timeline by manually entering in an absolute value (the value would be whatever counter mode you are in, ie timecode, min:sec, samples...). I know a few other DAWs that have been able to do this for quite some time. The new timeline location edit could happen in the "Edit Memory Location" dialog (accessed either ...more »
I'm sure I brought this up years ago.. The Big counter could use an overhaul. I'd love a mode where bars and beats didn't have all the junk beyond the bar and beats. It's so fast that it's useless 100% of the time. Usually if we're recording orchestra - that window is dragged off to the right out of bounds to physically cutoff that junk so the conductor only sees the bars and beats. This has been the case at ...more »
So, currently, if there's a bulk of updates available,.. after downloading them (even if automatic) - the installation procedure is pesky.. You have to open each one, go through about 5-9 clicks of authorization, license, destination, etc etc and then wait for it to finish. If you try to install another one at the same time, it fails and you have to wait till the current installation is complete before running ...more »
If I have spaces on (which i need as I run 4 monitors with various apps and such) ... If protools is fullscreen, if I go to rename a region - the pop window flips everything off the screen just for that popup. It's annoying as hell. Not all popped windows have this behaviour. It should be more consistent. You can see this in action if you copy and paste the below into a browser window. http://www.neilparfitt.com/protools-fullscreen.mov ...more »
At the moment Pro Tools uses absolute file reference for relinking. By that I mean, if you have a project on a drive: 'WORK' then when you move it to a different system it will always look for that exact drive. This means that every single time you move a project to an external drive and to a new system drive it, by default, loses all links and you have to spend time re-linking. Not conducive to a fast workflow. Solution ...more »
sometimes in my session i use more marker for numbering the scenes of a film, i use in place for an error of an actor word... for a memo and so on... i think will be confortable to have an easy modo to see only a type of marker that recall scene of the film or another thing. Now is possible to assign a colour but will be good if in the marker window there will be an option to show only a determinate color. anoter thing ...more »
Please update Pro Tools 11 and 12 to include a feature that can provide audio statistics based on a selection. It should include things like peak amplitude, average RMS, possible clipped samples, DC offset, etc.. This is a small feature request that I hope is relatively simple to implement. It is a feature that doesn't seem important, until you really need it. Many of Avid's competitors already have such a feature. ...more »
After updating to 12.5.2, Filter Gate no longer syncs with the tempo and is erratic.
For visual impaired users it would be extremely helpful to get acoustic feedback regarding the status of a EuCon-controllable button
(Artist Mix/Control etc.)
For example a single-beep sound for "on" and a 2-beep-sound for "off" or the
Shift-functionality of the same button.
Background Save Copy In... without using the audio engine, so that you can keep working on other sessions in the foreground. Cut back on wasted studio time..
Sometime when i work for film post i use sample in quad or 5.0 format and sometime i need to rotate the prospective. in some occasion i split sample into mono channels and i make the automation for all single channel. some time i only need to rebalance the front and the rear channel, so i use the trim in multi mono, but will be great if the will be a plugin for make this operation, like the waves 360 panner that not work ...more »
During stop, after automation has been written or when editing automation, it is possible with Write-to-Current and a selection made, to assign the value at the start of the selection to be written over the whole selection. I often find myself wishing to write the value at the end of the selection to be written to the whole selection. The shortcut could be (Win) : Ctrl + Start + / (numpad). (Yes, during an automation ...more »
Fine adjustments work nicely on e.g volume faders in the mix window or in the output window (lots of movement for little changes). This should work for plugins as well, e.g for the frequency pots of the EQ3-7Band. It would enable better frequency sweeps (e.g. for offending freqs); the present "jumps" are too big. A mouse-move of the pot or a mouse-move of a control point in the frequency graph or a scrollwheel-move, all ...more »
I feel PT12 weakest area is the lack of drum maps so we can see what instrument each key on the piano roll actually plays.
How about having the possibility to set reference tracks for Elastic Audio, when quantizing tracks in group?
For example, quantizing the drums group on the base of kick and snare markers only?
All major DAWs include this feature by now...
Time to be serious about Pro Tools, AVID!
This could be as easy as a checkbox on the existing 'Save copy In' and 'Export tracks as New Session' dialog. It would allow to save a copy of all the elements in the session ONLY inside of the selected range of time. This would save a lot of time on shared editing workflows, where for example an episode is done by various sound editors or mixers working on different scenes, and a full session has to be assembled afterwards. ...more »
I would like to submit a Pro Tools Mac native bug with Elastic Audio: I get clicks and pops (with spikes on waveforms) very often after rendering tracks with Elastic Audio treatment on them. I noticed that on PT11 and PT12 (all versions). PT 12.5.1 included. This happens both after committing EA on tracks and rendering, or just after rendering tracks without committing EA first. VERY annoying, as it makes audio editor's ...more »
Hello, regarding track groups I've been waiting for keyboard shortcuts like the following for longtime:
- Select first (next/previous/last) group
- Select all tracks in the current group (as a KEYBOARD SHORTCUT)
- Modify group
- Delete group
It would be nice to have them added to the PT keyboard shortcut collection.
