Enable Typing-In of Pan / Slider / Automation Values

Sliders & dials are great, sure, but sometimes it can be tough to get exactly the desired value, even when pressing Cmd. A lot of plugins allow you to simply type in values, so why not provide the same option when I click on the panning numbers? Typing in L50, R100 or whatever would be a faster option. Similarly, with sliders and automation spots, it'd be great to see an option where I can right-click and select 'Type ...more »

"Write on stop" automation commands on each track

I would like to be able to choose for each track how to operate with write on stop automation commands. In audio post, I work by stem, mixing voices, then adding SFX, and then music. I often use the write to next point, or to the end command when beginning my work on a stem, but I disengage it when a first pass is done. So it would be great to be able to disengage write on stop for "finished" tracks (i.e. dialog track, ...more »

PT CONTROL AUTOMATION BUG

Automation select sets to "off" when I select other features. Ex: when I select the "touch" feature while audio is playing it switches to "off" instead of "touch". No matter what automation feature I select while audio is playing it sets it to off.. Would love to be able to select automation features while audio is playing.

PT 12.6.0 bug: Fix CMD-click fine tuning of trim automation

As per title. CMD-clicking a trim automation node in PT 12.6.0 does not give 0.1 dB fine tuning of the automation, instead it snaps the node to the grid, even in slip mode. CMD-clicking regular volume automation still works as expected. (The current workaround is using the "extreme" track height temporarily)

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 »

Scrollwheel for Vol Automation, allow Preference for Increment per Detent

For volume automation, the scrollwheel of the mouse can be used to write/change the value, if the output window of a track is opened and the volume value is highlighted. Right now, the increments are very small, like 0.1 dB per detent. There could be a preference of how many dB one detent of the scrollwheel changes (like 0.1 or 0.5 or 1.0 or 2.0 or ...). Like with nudging clip gain. Changing the vol automation value with ...more »

Write-to-Current in Stop, but take the End Value for the Selection until Start

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 »

Mix Scenes / Automation Scenes

Pro Tools would benefit from having recallable mix "scenes" (or Automation parameter scenes) available within a single session. Users should be able to generate and store an arbitrary number of recallable scenes. When a scene is recalled, the faders, pans, send, plug-in settings/bypass, etc all change to their saved vales. This feature can allow for a number of significant workflow improvements. It would allow: -Alternate ...more »

S3 changing auto mode on a channel twice requires double tapping the sel button most of the time

If you want to change the auto mode of a channel twice in a row, you have to double tap instead of single tap the corresponding sel button twice instead of once 95% of the time. In combination with the lack of proper visual feedback on the s3 this is very annoying.

Improved visual feedback of the automation mode buttons

When touching a fader during playback, the according auto mode button in the right side softkey section of that channel starts to blink. It would be great if this would also work when playback is stopped. It would also be great if this would work for the trim button as well. Of course this is no subsitute for a proper automation mode indicator on the lcds, but it would already be helpful.

Campaign: Misc

Pro Tools Dock Automation workflow change.

The automation mode selected from the "fixed" automation mode buttons (to the right of the fader) should change the Auto Mode of the ATTENTIONED track without having to press the "Select" button. This is MUCH more intuitive & saves an extra button click. Additionally, for auto modes, this should be a simple "click", and not a "click & hold". There's very little chance that an errant click is going to "accidentally" change ...more »
