When Clip Groups are Created, color or shade differently

When you hit command + opt + G and group a series of clips, it's currently to hard to distinguish that group short of the tiny little text at the top left, that many of us with high res monitors can barely see. I propose that when you group clips, that group is either colored differently or at the very least has a slightly different (darker or lighter shade) than the rest of the clips on that track. Example of use in ...more »

Mirrored Playlist Editing

It would be efficient to have a way to choose mirrored playlist editing in the same fashion as mirrored Midi editing. Especially when performing cut time or add time commands. A simple checkbox would suffice. When moving sections of a song around this is a workflow killer. For example. If you decide to copy and past a chorus to double it or remove an instrumental section, you need to be able to have the playlists follow. ...more »

Drums mode for MIDI editor

I would love to have an option to switch MIDI editor to DRUM EDIT MODE where there would be diamond or triangle markers for note start without showing its length. Would be also nice to have a possibility to switch from classic piano roll to MIDI note number mode, to set names for notes, load and save note names to file and display custom layers (e.g. show only named notes or show notes defined by user).

Pencil Tool auto preference option

When I am editing vinyl clicks while zoomed into the wave form at the sample level it's time to select the pencil tool to draw out the click, and then "Chicklet" back out to overview the waveform to scrub to the next click and also switch to the selector tool to navigate to the next click and then zoom back in to the sample level again at which point again selecting the pencil tool.and then repeat on and on, click after ...more »

Copy/paste from a session to another

It would be great to have the ability to open a session, select one or several clips and/or markers, or anything else, copy them, close the session, open another one, and paste it. Would be useful in addition to the "import session data..." that only works with tracks.

Separate MIDI notes on grid shortcut

To separate MIDI notes on the grid: 1. Set the Grid value. 2. Make an Edit selection or a marquee selection that includes the MIDI notes you want to separate. 3. Choose Edit > Separate > On Grid. 4. In the Pre-Separate Amount dialog, click OK. I've been using this feature a lot since discovering it hidden away in the edit menu, but I like to work quickly with keyboard shortcuts and I feel slowed down having to use the ...more »

In Grid mode, use the Command (Mac) or Control (Windows) key to toggle off (or “clutch” out of)

It would be very handy to turn that function on and off via the prefs menu. In some situations like high speed editing it is very annoying to have the insertion/selection always jumping to grid mode.

 

Thanks

Separate Clips at all Memory Location Markers

Have a feature in the Memory location window to put a clip separation everywhere there is a memory location marker for a highlighted track.

 

For those of us who edit LOTS of voiceovers, I will make separations at all the memory locations (bad parts in the script) so that when I'm editing....I don't move all the audio further down stream, causing it to be off it's marker.

Adjustable/darker brightness for Mix/Edit Window

Please update Pro Tools to include an adjustable brightness or a darker window option similar to the new Venue 5.0 software.

 

It'd be much easier on the eyes with a darker window option.

Fade Window should have optional timecode resolution (locked to session TC format), rather than just milliseconds

Love the updated Fade Window in Pro Tools 12. My only issue is I work in various timecode frame rates so trying to cut sound effects in millisecond resolution isn't convenient. How many milliseconds in duration is a frame at 29.97, 23.976 or 25 frames? I'd love the option to have this window lock itself to the session timecode resolution and allow quick and easy quarter frame, half frame, 1 frame and multiple frame input ...more »
