I utilise the transpose semitone key command all the time and would find a octave transpose key command very useful and a huge time saver.
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 »
1) Grab a selected track and move it up and down in the timeline. Don't release the mouse button. You should notice that after one more more times moving up and down, some of the clips and track names will start to get a little psychedelic looking. 2) Place the track back where you found it and release the mouse button. You will see the psychedelic trails remain. 3) Repeat with any of the other tracks - the key is to ...more »
I'm running Pro Tools 12.5.2 HD Native Windows 8.1 Pro Here's my problem: I have a marker I created just so I know where I left off (it's 99 but I suspect this happens with any marker). If I am further down the timeline, and want to regenerate the same marker, (I don't want to go hunt down the marker and scoot it for fear of losing my place), I hit ENTER and try to add the same marker number (99) again. the app ...more »
When dragging multiple clips from the clip window onto the timeline, with left to right, drop order selected, only the first clip is shown as you hover over the area to be dropped.
The user is given no indication of how far the selected clips will fall along the timeline, potentially overlapping other clips already on the timeline.
When editing i often use Shuffle Mode of course.Id love to see a freature that also Moves the Markers after the Edit Point. When inserting a Part all following Marker shift to the right and vice versa when cutting out all following Markers shift to the left like the following Clips.
I would call it "Link Marker Position to Shuffle Edit"
When changing the session start time in the Session Setup window, Pro Tools seems to erringly override Selection memory locations that have Absolute time references and treats them as relative instead (a bug). To reproduce: 1) Make a PT session with at least one track and one region 2) Create a Selection memory location with an Absolute time reference (not Bar | Beat). Note the timecode. 3) Open Session Setup window, ...more »
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 »
This is really embarrassing, because Windows-based customers are convicted to use some non-official programs like Skootch to manage edit and mixer windows.
This is a terrible shame for Avid!
I'm feeling like an idiot every time when I have to suffer with stretching container window on multiple screens.
So I would like to get the answer from someone for this!
Gentlemen, can you solve this or not?!
My suggestion is that the Pro Tools Mixer has Playlists. So for example: 1. You could duplicate a mix, try different things, go off at a tangent etc. 2. Create a new mix. "Zero" the mixer and start again with the option of going back to the original. 3. Move tracks between mixes. For example, duplicate a mix and get a better drum sound, then copy those tracks into the original mix that was otherwise fine. 4. Splice sections ...more »
I wanted to Randomize a number of notes all with the same velocity in the MIDI Editor. So... I enabled Scale By set to 100% then changed the Randomize amount. Instead of simply randomizing the notes, Pro Tools is creating duplicates. The higher the Randomize parameter is set, greater numbers of duplicate notes are created. This is with 12.5.2 HD.
Pro Tools has support for MXF. Unfortunately, there are tons of different flavors of MXF around... As a broadcaster, we use OP1a files, containing video and 16 tracks of audio. Pro Tools only imports the Video from these files. (Kind of odd for DAW software, no?) Pro Tools currently only imports audio from MXF OPAtom files, which have separate files for audio and video. Since our complete workflow - from ingest to playout ...more »
When using Logic Pro 10.2.4 with Artist Mix 3.4, the first encoder knob push top works fine to select but rotating the knob has no effect. Ie. pan does not adjust.
It would be awesome to have a bounce workflow that allowed to print a number of version. A tick box in the bounce window possibly. Options would be eg. Vocal +1dB, Vocal -1dB, TV mix, Vocals only etc.
At the moment I use the trim plugin as the last plugin across the voc channel and set the value there for each bounce version.
When removing sends within Pro Tools I Control app. channel view, they are still visible but frozen in the app. Pro tools itself functions normally and removes send.
I would like to type in volume values for faders in the edit window. Currently this can only be done from the floating fader window. This would simplify how quickly you are able to make small incremental volume changes for tracks.
This idea is related to the I/O Window. At the moment in pro tools there are a number of issues with Aggregate devices. Often when using multiple audio interfaces in OS X 10.11 the I/O doesn't match with the devices in the I/O window. This can make determining which input is which incredibly difficult. My suggested solution is two fold. One - make it so that aggregate device I/O and the I/O correlate with input names ...more »
a long shot ..
I'd had a few situations where I've accidentally cut power to my rack containing my MADI and HD I/O while a session is up.
At that point you get the usual "HD hardware I/O has changed. Save or Quit"
Is there code that could be implemented for Protools to figure out that the hardware is available again (if they're powered up) and continue on with the session open?
- create a new session
- create new audio track
- change fader/pan value
- freeze the track
- copy to send will result in a different level and pan value than expected
- repeating copy to send again results in different values than before (still incorrect)
Similar to freezing rows or columns in a spreadsheet program, I've often thought it would be great to be able to lock specific tracks at the top of your edit window so that they were constantly visible while being able to vertically scroll through the rest of your session. For example, keeping picture editorial guide tracks locked at the top of your edit window so they would be constantly visible / available for reference. ...more »
