Create Folders in the Clips List to allow Related Clip Storage

I would like to see the ability to create folders in the clips (regions) list so that I can move similar clips into a specific folder. This would be useful for music and sound post production. For example, in music, you could put all the percussion in one folder and in sound you could put all the birds on one folder and all the different guns or explosions in another. This would clean up the clips list and allow for ...more »

Big Counter disappearing

This is a bug that got introduced in PT11 where the big counter disappears. I work in film scoring where we display the video on a second monitor with the Bar Beat counter overlaid for the musicians to see. Here are the steps to reproduce: 1. open a session that has a video track 2. output a movie window to second monitor 3. open big counter and overlay over the movie (I put it in the upper right corner typically) 4. ...more »

Workspace: Add sample peak, inter-sample peak, RMS and LU values for all audio files.

As the title says. This may require a manual 'analyse now' button to avoid background processing when these values are not needed.

Alternatively, one could also make some audio suite plugins operate in the workspace (pro limiter's analyse feature, 'analyse' from the Gain plug in, Master-meter...the plug-ins that measure and meter).

Thanks for your support voting this up.

"Add more tracks" command behaviour in Bounce dialog

When clicking the “+” button to add multiple sources, the subsequent busses/outputs are added according to their order in the I/O setup. However, only stereo busses are added by default. When the user is bouncing a mono bus (for example, “Bus 5” or “Vocal 1”) and he adds more sources, he likely expects to have the subsequent mono busses added (“Bus 6”, Bus 7”, “Bus 8”, etc.) instead of stereo busses.

"Bounce selected tracks" command

Add a command of bouncing all selected tracks on the mixer, ignoring their routing (picking them directly at their output, before they pass through other busses or plug-ins on the master fader), ignoring solos and mutes on the mixer, ignoring if they are active or inactive, and featuring these options: - enable/bypass inserts - bypass pan setting (set it to default - 0 for mono tracks, 100L/100R for stereo tracks, etc.) ...more »

ADC greater than 16k (@ 44.1/48 kHz) and 32k (88.2/96 kHz)

Please enable greater delay compensation than 16k/32k samples. It’s not uncommon to reach the limit, especially when using plug-ins that implement phase-linear filters (eq, multiband compressors). A peculiar case is PSP Neon HR version, which latency is greater than the limit of delay compensation and it’s barely unusable in Pro Tools. Should this impact performance, please consider adding back delay compensation choice ...more »

Insert/Sends view improvements

Instead of viewing/hiding Inserts and Sends in blocks of five items, let the user freely decide by clicking and dragging on the bottom border of the last insert or send. This would make mixer resizing easier, faster and more flexible to fit on different screens. A symbol (such a small arrow, or a couple of arrows) at the bottom of the insert/send row could indicate if other active inserts/sends are hidden below or above ...more »

Plug-in insertion/shuffling simplification

- If a plug-in is dragged between two plug-ins, a horizontal line appears (representing the insertion point) and the plug-in order is shuffled (or, if coming from another track, the plug-in is added in the chain); - if a plug-in is dragged above an existing plug-in, the plug-in is replaced (current behaviour). Consider removing the limit of 10 chained plug-ins (otherwise, when trying to add a plug-in between a full chain ...more »

MIDI Strip Silence / Automatic MIDI clip or region resizing

It would be nice that Strip Silence can work with MIDI clips like audio... It is not easy to navigate in project with 50 MIDI tracks full of clips, and it is such a wasting time and painful task to resize everything manually.

it is also possible to add a sub function in "Edit => Separate Clip => Smart separation"

Add MIDI channel mode messages

I just found out that Pro Tools only supports Controller # 0-119. MIDI channel mode messages (CC#120 onwards) cannot be created in the list editor. Please add functionality to send Local on/off messages (CC#122), control OMNI and Poly/mono (CC#124-127), reset controllers (CC#121) and all oscillators off (CC#120) aka. panic. Support in the list editor is bare necessity, a nice little window with buttons would be great. ...more »

"Takes" view that puts EVERY recorded pass IN TIME in its own lane AUTOMATICALLY and can be used to create playlists.

Playlists are useful, but they are being forced to do double duty. Right now I can just keep generating new playlists after EVERY take (which is TEDIOUS and constantly renames the track) OR, I can right click on a track to "show alternates" and then send those alternate takes to new playlists. Problem 1: When I do this, all the alternate takes line up with the playhead as opposed to where they were originally recorded ...more »

Volume Drops

Sometimes, after changing to a new rig, a few seconds later the volume drops. I notice that the volume value is lower than it should be, or an EQ setting has changed. Simply leaving and coming back to the same rig brings the volume back to normal. Kinda scary to think this can happen live. Please fix or provide advise on how to prevent this from happening. Thanks.

Unified POSIX Ownership and Permissions for Plug-Ins

Please require all plug-in developers to set the POSIX owner to root (or admin), the POSIX group to admin, and the POSIX permissions to 775 (rwxrwxr-x) for every single AAX plug-in! Every plug-in, regardless of developer, should have the same POSIX permissions and ownership. This makes scripting the movement of plug-ins into and out of the unused folder possible. I need this functionality. Please give it to us. I cannot ...more »

Spot to original TC wrong when selecting over clip boundaries

When you make a selection across a clip and then spot that to original TC-stamp the clip will snap to a position offset by the length of the selection ahead of the clip. Example: Clip's original TC stamp is at 01:00:00:00 Selection starts 1 second ahead of the clip. Spot to original TC will make the clip spot to 01:00:01:00 Expected: The clip should always snap to it's original tc-stamp value regardless the selection ...more »

PAN DRIFT AUTOMATION BUG, v11.3.0 & 11.3.1 Native

Big time bug happening while trying to use pan automation on stereo tracks. Making mixing IMPOSSIBLE!!! - When I pan BOTH channels of a stereo track all the way 100 to the left, I still get a very significant amount of signal coming out of the right channel (at least 50%). As if that wasn't buggy enough, it get's worse... When I play from the begging of where the automation starts on that track, the signal's panned image ...more »
