Fix 12.8+ Crash on Quit

I know it's not impacting everyone, but for me, going from 12.7.1 to 12.8.1 introduced a new crash which happens every time I try to quit the app: it just shows the generic 'Send to Avid' crash reporter. Apparently, the same happened for some others who tried 12.8.0 also. For me, it's completely tied to whether or not I have Guitar Rig 5.2.2 in my plugins folder or not, but there could well be other plugins related to ...more »

Signal Generator Plugin Presets Broken in Multi-Mono Mode

I tried this on multiple systems spanning multiple versions of Pro Tools. I don't know if it has ever worked properly. If I make a present of tones with all the channels unlinked, changing the preset doesn't recall all the settings for all the channels, only the currently selected channel. For example if I have a multi-mono signal generator on a 5.1 track. I unlink the channels and change the level of the tone so each ...more »

Copy Stereo plugin to Mono Track

Currently you can copy a mono plugin to a stereo track, but you can't copy a stereo plugin to a mono track. I understand the reason why, but frankly it doesn't make much sense. If the setting are the same between the channels, just apply those settings to the new mono plugin, it's not that hard. If the channels are different....then a popup window appears asking which channel you want to take settings from. Example ...more »

Rescan plugins ONLY when necessary.

I think that Pro Tools would start up much faster if it didn't have to scan all the plugins every time it starts up. it is very time consuming. Please, make it stop! Create a short cut key that rescans when we ask or something like that. Waves does this and LogicX does too.

"Send to Audiosuite" button on AAX plugins

Have a button on the actual real time plugin that you're using that renders a highlighted region with Audiosuite.

 

This way you don't have to copy settings, open Audiosuite, paste settings and render.

 

Yes, I realize there is track freeze, but sometimes it's best to audition something through a real time plugin and then just render that one region, not the whole track.

M/S Matrix Option within Multi-Mono Plug-in Header

I utilise multi-mono instantiations of plug-ins all the time and think it is a great feature for individual L/R processing.However, the ability to process the mid and sides separately would be such a game changer! I know we could insert a M/S matrix plug-in before and after a multi-mono plug-in but that is three inserts! An option in the multi-mono plug-in header to switch to M/S mode, where of course the L channel would ...more »

allow trim automation for ANY (plugin) parameter

Right now trim automation is only possible for volume automation. It would be great to have trim automation for any parameter, including panning and plug-in parameters. There's absolutely no reason why this wouldn't be possible. Right now it's totaly ridiculous that you have to grab that mouse to fine tune any non-volume automation parameter even if you're sitting behind a quadrillion dollar Avid console. This is an absolute ...more »

Losing plugin names when loading session into alternate rig

I am in the process of upgrading to a new rig. From a 2011 MBP (I will call this RIG A) to a more current iMac (RIG B). Truth is I have the iMac on loan for a couple weeks to see if it is what I'm looking for. Both systems run PT 11.3.2 When I load a session previously made on RIG A into RIG B the the plugin preset names show up in the Librarian menu as factory default The settings are still there but the name of the ...more »

MIDI Learn GUI

Sorry if this is a repeat request... I think it would be great if there was a MIDI GUI where you can visually drag and connect certain functions on a MIDI controller straight to the Plug-In or other part of Pro Tools for control. For more clarification, if a company like Akai or M-Audio or Novation took a picture of their MIDI Controller, had little blue boxes around each knob/fader/slider/etc. that can be mapped, ...more »
