When working in Latch mode I don't see if a track is in automation. this is important since it's easy on the S3 to accidentallly touch a fader and put in wrtie that way... -a simple solution a blinking "rw" in the display -more elegant the whole display blinking - very nice: (like on the ProControl) using the mulitcolor LEDs to indicate the automation mode and status off- off green - read red latch/touch yellow - trim ...more »
Sometimes a terminal suddenly pops up.
As it looks, it caused by some bug in the interaction between OS and Avid apps.
Maybe it's the Application Manager that causes all this trouble?
I see that some users have the same issue:
Can we have 2 S3 act as a 32 channel controller? Especially with the upcoming PT Dock, a 32 channel S3 on both sides would be great for filmmix at least! This feature could be unlocked in Eucon?
The S3 integrates really well with the Channel strip plugin, but with Clip FX now working so well it would be great to access this from the S3 too
With the artist mix series of controllers, when you scroll into view on the mix or edit window of ProTools (either by right clicking on track name and selecting or by holding down SHIFT/CONTROL and clicking) the controller follows the selection and puts the track on the far left. This is not the behaviour on the S3. It would be great if it was.
This is a real killer... If nothing else, PLEASE enable the ability to Flip the fader to control Sends... I can live without the rest, but this was a basic (& GREAT) function on the Cmd*8, and is present, to my understanding, on the S3.
For those of us not owning (and not interested in owning) an S3, this one pice of functionality would really help.
Update installed, new session.

This error prevents completing the upgrade, and requires contacting Avid to resolve:
S3L with 126.96.36.1990 and PT 11.2.0, Two E3 Engines (gain sharing)
Playback Engine should list "EngineOne:AVB" and "EngineTwo:AVB" as the available AVB audio units.
Playback Engine only lists "EngineTwo:AVB", and lists it twice. It does not list "EngineOne:AVB" at all
If I adjust the input gain trim the settings are not saved, so I have to adjust the gain everytime I power on the S3.
Maybe these are features but I understand them as bugs. First off the default state of the 12 soft keys on the dock surface is un-lit basically disabled, this is confusing why they seem to have no default function and no unique assignment possible from the EuControl app. They are basically dead. This complicates the user experience and trouble shooting this issue. Pressing the bottom right soft key on the Doc surface ...more »
Please improve the rotary encoder kinetics. At the moment they are jumpy, either responding to slow or to fast. They need to be much more linear.
