Losing plugin names when loading session into alternate rig

I am in the process of upgrading to a new rig. From a 2011 MBP (I will call this RIG A) to a more current iMac (RIG B). Truth is I have the iMac on loan for a couple weeks to see if it is what I'm looking for. Both systems run PT 11.3.2 When I load a session previously made on RIG A into RIG B the the plugin preset names show up in the Librarian menu as factory default The settings are still there but the name of the ...more »

MIDI Learn GUI

Sorry if this is a repeat request... I think it would be great if there was a MIDI GUI where you can visually drag and connect certain functions on a MIDI controller straight to the Plug-In or other part of Pro Tools for control. For more clarification, if a company like Akai or M-Audio or Novation took a picture of their MIDI Controller, had little blue boxes around each knob/fader/slider/etc. that can be mapped, ...more »

Scrollwheel for Vol Automation, allow Preference for Increment per Detent

For volume automation, the scrollwheel of the mouse can be used to write/change the value, if the output window of a track is opened and the volume value is highlighted. Right now, the increments are very small, like 0.1 dB per detent. There could be a preference of how many dB one detent of the scrollwheel changes (like 0.1 or 0.5 or 1.0 or 2.0 or ...). Like with nudging clip gain. Changing the vol automation value with ...more »

Keyboard Shortcut "Delete" Disappearing

I've just moved from PT 10 to 12. Since the beginning of time, I have used "Control+F" as an OSX keyboard shortcut for "Delete" in Pro tools, meaning I could select the tracks I wanted, and using this shortcut, delete them without having to "right click" or "command+click" or go through any menus. Bam! The tracks were gone, and it was great. I tried to delete a track in 12, and noticed this shortcut was gone, and ...more »

Import Session Data: Track Names as an option when Matching Tracks

For film and TV: If I send a session from a template to an editor (or several), who does some work and changes track names to something helpfully descriptive (Cars 1-4, Rain 1-8, etc.), I'd like to be able to match tracks back into my master session, and include their changed track names as well as the clips. As it currently works, matching tracks and importing gives you of course plenty of options, but updating the ...more »

Fan Noise on HDX cards

I have my PCIe cards in a top cover removed Magma EB7 with the fans unplugged- out in the open in my studio which is temperature controlled. I have a UAD-2octo, various SSD's on Sonnet cards, RME-MADI card and HDX-2. All the cards are barely lukewarm warm to the touch even under heavy load. Are the HDX card fans temperature sensitive? They spin up to full the moment protools launches. Is there's a temperature ...more »

BUG: PT 12 crashes when attempting to bounce a multichannel file to MP3

While trying to bounce an MP3 file, PT hangs, freezes or crashes, even when there's no plugins active in the session. The standard MP3 format (that is, not "MP3 Surround") that the Pro Tools encoder uses only supports TWO CHANNEL interleaved files. Both WAV and AIFF support multichannel files, but PT is not handling this distinction cleanly. If you try (mistakenly or otherwise) to send a multi-channel output to PT's ...more »

Keboard focus batch fades should follow batch fade settings, not defaults in prefs

The behavior of batch fades from keyboard focus was changed in 12.5.1 and Avid considers this a bug fix. Avid: "Fade in, Crossfade, and Fade out no longer fail to follow the edit preferences when using command focus keyboard shortcuts on edit selection. PT12.5.1 and 12.5.2 are working properly. PT12.5 had a bug." In fixing this "bug" they have now made it impossible to use batch fades without also creating fade-ins and ...more »

Hours:Minutes:Seconds option on Counter

Very simple request that hopefully can be easily implemented in Pro Tools 11 and up. I would like the option for the counter to show hrs:min:secs.ms instead of min:secs.ms. Min:Secs.ms would still be an option of course. This would just add a Hr:Min:Secs.ms option. A toggle option in the Pro Tool preferences would also be acceptable. Most other DAWs already have this option. hrs:min:secs VS min:secs is just a personal ...more »

Ability to edit Marker location on timeline by manually entering in absolute value

Title pretty much sums it up. In Pro Tools 11 and up please allow the ability to edit a Marker's place on timeline by manually entering in an absolute value (the value would be whatever counter mode you are in, ie timecode, min:sec, samples...). I know a few other DAWs that have been able to do this for quite some time. The new timeline location edit could happen in the "Edit Memory Location" dialog (accessed either ...more »

Better Big Counter

I'm sure I brought this up years ago.. The Big counter could use an overhaul. I'd love a mode where bars and beats didn't have all the junk beyond the bar and beats. It's so fast that it's useless 100% of the time. Usually if we're recording orchestra - that window is dragged off to the right out of bounds to physically cutoff that junk so the conductor only sees the bars and beats. This has been the case at ...more »

Installing updated plugins behaviour / streamlining

So, currently, if there's a bulk of updates available,.. after downloading them (even if automatic) - the installation procedure is pesky.. You have to open each one, go through about 5-9 clicks of authorization, license, destination, etc etc and then wait for it to finish. If you try to install another one at the same time, it fails and you have to wait till the current installation is complete before running ...more »

Change popup window behaviour in fullscreen spaces mode

If I have spaces on (which i need as I run 4 monitors with various apps and such) ... If protools is fullscreen, if I go to rename a region - the pop window flips everything off the screen just for that popup. It's annoying as hell. Not all popped windows have this behaviour. It should be more consistent. You can see this in action if you copy and paste the below into a browser window. http://www.neilparfitt.com/protools-fullscreen.mov ...more »
