on/off option to permanently erase a recording after doing undo

Doing undo after recording deletes the file permanently once another process is made. I would very much like an option where the file doesn't get deleted. Having an on/off switch on the delete feature of undo.

It would be safer for unwanted press of "z"

It would let the user choose if they want the number increment of the recordings to take the deleted takes into account or not.

MIDI Editor Window track record enable button

In the MIDI editor, you can solo and mute the track you're working on, but you can't record-enable it. You also can't tell if it may already be record-enabled. It would really help my workflow to be able to quickly pop into record without flipping back to either the mix or edit windows to know what track(s) are currently record enabled and be able to modify that from here.

 

Thanks!

Screen with large transport controls

A very useful function when remote recording from a live room (or similar) and away from the computer would be a customisable or preset screen with large transport buttons and and additional smaller touch buttons for "new playlist" etc.

Audio Wild Record / Audio Clip Selection "Clip Source Window"

The Ability to record in the "Clip Source Window" a wild mono or stereo track, where the clip ends up in the Clip menu or a specified folder i.e Wild VO Records, saves a lot of time and maintains a clean timeline, rather than having to navigate through unneeded extra

tracks and clips on the timeline which is very time consuming. please see attachment.

Select Clips by Color

Select Clips by Color will really help to extent your workflow.

- When recording dialogue/Foley/Soundscapes and selecting the best takes.

- Preparing ADR & Foley tracks

- Export different stems all over your session.

- And way more options

 

And to finish this idea, Make the colors available for Apple Script or Something else programmable.

 

Thanks AVID!

Batch Recording Queue

Not sure if this is possible, but when recording/printing mixes to new track, I would love the ability to select multiple in and out points throughout the timeline to create a "Recording Queue." I think this could be particularly valuable in post production workflows, where multiple versions of a mix may be created within one session. Example workflow: you're mixing a :30 broadcast promo, and there are 6 versions—all ...more »
