make use of the multicolour LEDs for Fkeys and Channel Encoder Assign keys

I like the use of colours on the S3.

I think it would make sense to use the same colors (EQ, DYN, Insert) for the Channel Encoder Assign keys.

Very important in my opinion is a flashing or red LED when you have the faders in "Flip" mode.

On the right Fn Keys it would be nice to have different colors as well. But I hope they will become custom EuCon keys with custom colour anyway...

Always show values of knob parameters on the upper part of the OLEDs

the upper OLED displays are hard to read and the knobs are in the way to see the lower line. This is a hardware issue that can't be fixed, but the upper row of the OLED is not used at all except on the first display that shows you the name of the attentioned track. It would be cool to replace the values now shown as bars with actual numbers or text on the top row of the display. (this makes sense for EQ parameters that ...more »

Clip color changes when rendering AS

This is with PT 11.3 Steps to reproduce: 1) Select a clip that contains a head-fade and has an individual clip color different from the track's color. 2) Render Izotope RX4 declicker across the clip. Result: Clip's color has been changed to the track's color. What should happen instead: PT should retain the individual color that clip had before rendering. Note: This only happens when the clip has a fade in. cuts or ...more »

Score Editor can not be opened in PT 11.3 on Yosemite 10.10.1

Score editor cannot be opened on a MIDI region in Pro Tools 11.3.

Going to Window>MIDI Editor opens up the MIDI editor and places a "dash" next to that element in the Window menu list.

The same cannot be said of "Score Editor", which displays the dash but does ever actually open up the window.

Hesdphone output source

I'd like to be able to set the source for the headphone out. Currently, if the front panel volume does NOT control the mains, the headphones lack any front panel volume knob.

Setting the phones to Amp 1 or 2 would allow me to send a fixed volume to the board via XLR, and control both headphones and Amp volume from the front panel knob without changing menu settings.

Automatic Sample Frequency Correction For Digidesign HD

This is an idea that came into my head when I upgraded my Interface. Specifically, I had gone from a 2nd generation to a 3rd generation, Mbox Pro. The amount of difference it plays, to have incredible software behind this 8X8 Interface, makes me wonder, Can AVID's engineers, do the same thing for the 2nd generation of hardware. hmmm

X-Ray Plugin and floating windows like the feature in Sonar

X-Ray floating windows and plugin windows like the feature in Sonar as described below The X-Ray Windows feature eliminates the need to constantly minimize, move, or close windows in order to work in other windows. It works by decreasing the opacity of the current window enough so that you can see and work with the window that’s behind the current window. You activate the feature by pressing SHIFT+X when the mouse cursor ...more »

Pro Tools v11.3 can't change track output to Master out

Ever since I updated to 11.3 Native, it has become almost impossible to simply reroute any track or aux track's output to the Master stereo Monitor output. When I click the output of a track to change it to go out the master instead of wherever it's currently outputting to, pro tools will not let me select the master stereo output. It's not gray'd out, simply nothing changes when I click it. I have to click the "master" ...more »

Smarter comping with playlists

Playlists in protools are not really handy for comping because you have to edit your track the same way you would do it with different real tracks, and if you have a lot of take it become quickly a mess. I think reaper found a good way to work: You see all your playlists in one track and you just choose which part is the best. You click CMD+L to see the edited choice or to ...more »

Shortcuts for Automation Modes

Got an idea for Automation mode Shortcuts in Mac OSX. How about:

COMMAND+A+W for Autowrite

COMMAND+A+R for Autoread

COMMAND+A+T for Auto Touch

COMMAND+A+L for Auto Latch

COMMAND+TL for Auto Touch/Latch

And holding down SHIFT would engage the Trim mode when used with any of these keys. These commands would work on selected tracks only unless OPTION is engaged with any of these commands.

select tracks via touching knobs

you can set EuCon to select tracks via touching faders

that way I can't use latch prime.

a nice feature ( as preference of course) would be to select tracks via one row of knobs instead the select button.

the select button next to the faders could then be used for future features like VCA spill...

Option to have floating windows follow track selection

(note this is an expansion on the idea express in #183) In the same way there are options edit selection follow timeline selection, and track selection follow edit selection, there should be similar for floating windows. Mainly, this would be plug in windows and floating faders. The current behavior, in which there is no connection, seems flat out wrong to me. If there were multiple tracks selected, the floating windows ...more »

insert mode should follow plugins targeted on screen

After all these years the feature that has been present on all non-Eucon Avid controllers is still missing. Insert mode should follow plugins opened/targeted on screen. On Command|8, Control24, C|24, Icon, Pro Control, HUI controllers insert mode is always focused on currently targeted plugin (with little red target button in plugin window corner). Why is this so important? Let's assume we have a very large session. ...more »

Remove Pro Tools Track Limitation

Max. tracks 96/48/24 at 48/96/192 kHz It's ridiculous for a $700 software to have such a limitation. Cubase, Sonar, Logic, Digital Performer, Studio One and even Reaper and Ardour allow you to have tons more tracks at any samplerate. I use UA Apollos with extra UAD DSP so I don't need HD hardware, why trimming the software for the rest of us? there's plenty of HD exclusive "features" available on your hardware like ...more »
