Option-Click on a Send to change Track View to that Sends level

Changing the track view to a sends level (or mute and pan for that matter) is ridiculously involved considering how often this task is performed, especially when all 10 sends are being used on a track. As far as I can tell, Option-clicking on a send does nothing other than open that sends fader. So it would be nice to add some functionality to an Option-Click on a send. Option-Click the send and the track view changes ...more »

Stereo Links to simplify Gain, Panning, Inserts, sends, etc.

Currently if I want to perform only one operation to control gain, panning, processing, inserts, sends, etc. for my hardware stereo left/right inputs (i.e. keyboard synths, drum machines, sequencers), I have to create an Auxilliary Channel which just adds more clutter to my numerous channel inputs. I have an Allen & Heath QU32 digital mixer that allows me to link any two of the 32 channels starting with an odd number ...more »

Lock Insertion Follows Playback and Record Status

These two buttons are frequently mis triggered as they are both next to commonly used keys on the keyboard. I can't tell you how many times I've accidentally gone out of punch mode because my fat finger bumps 6 when hitting 3 to start recording and on the next pass when I try to punch I completely miss recording and have to start the take over again. The "N" key is close to commonly used "B" and of course the spacebar ...more »

Match Tracks Not Working Correctly

Recently I've noticed that Match Tracks in the Import Session Data window is not functioning at all with some tracks. I've been importing track settings from a template that has identical track names and Match Tracks won't match them. I've attached 2 screenshots, one is what happens when I click Match Tracks and the 2nd is a screenshot of the first 5 tracks manually matched, which you can see are completely identical. ...more »

Stereo (and multichannel) side chains please!

Pro Tools, you are boss in so many routing related issues. But, your side chaining functionality leaves something to be desired. Apart from that they are only delay compensated in HDX, they are also only mono. In this day of multichannel audio, this won't do. I'm sure you are aware of this and are working on it. But here's my vote for it anyway. Thanks and looking forward to being able to use the Pro-L2 properly (like ...more »

Pro Tools Won't Recognize change in IO if busses are labeled the same but in a different format.

First off, I would really like it if Avid would bring back the checkbox in the IO window to always use the IO saved with the session as I have many different IO setups that I use for each project that I work with. As for the issue I'm now facing due to the new system of having to "Restore from Session" in the IO window every time I switch between project, I've noticed that Pro Tools 2018.1.0 will not recognize if an ...more »

Multi-tool functions incorrectly near clip boundaries

Often (not always) when near the edge of a clip using the multitool instead of resizing the clip it will behave as if the grabber tool is active and move the clip, despite the pointer tool indicating the edge tool. This started happening since some time after PT10 I think and is still happening in 2018.1.

Audio Engine reset

Is there a valid reason for having to quit PT's to change audio interfaces? I normally use HDX via HD i/o but I have an instruments with a built-in interface that require no physical patching and it's really a bother to have to physically patch 14 channels of i/o or quit, restart PT's and virtually patch every time I use the instrument. I believe this is an area that could use improving. An audio engine reset or update ...more »
