Fix 12.8+ Crash on Quit

I know it's not impacting everyone, but for me, going from 12.7.1 to 12.8.1 introduced a new crash which happens every time I try to quit the app: it just shows the generic 'Send to Avid' crash reporter. Apparently, the same happened for some others who tried 12.8.0 also. For me, it's completely tied to whether or not I have Guitar Rig 5.2.2 in my plugins folder or not, but there could well be other plugins related to ...more »

Move/Copy Plug-in in-between' two contiguous Plug-ins

It would be great if you could move or copy a plug-in in-between two contiguous plug-ins.

At present, we only have the option to replace one of the plug-ins and it is time-consuming dragging plug-ins down first to create a empty insert slot.

When hovering in-between two plug-ins a highlighted line should inform the user the dragged plug-in will be inserted in-between these plug-ins.

Command+W shortcut to close active plugin window

Currently if you have any "extra" windows open (Plugins, Markers, System Usage, etc) you can press Ctrl+Opt+Cmd+W to close ALL extra windows. Cmd+W only closes the Edit and Mixer windows. But while you're tweaking a plugin's parameters, THAT window is active instead (Edit & Mixer window buttons are greyed out) so Cmd+W should just close THAT plugin's window, rather than the Edit window, shouldn't it? If you open a ...more »

Assigning plugin with search function

Would it be an idea to assign a new plugin to a track in pro tools in the same way you open an application in OSX via spotlight. Here's an example: - Click on an empty insert - Start writing the plugin's name. For example "EQ3..." - Pro tools suggests "EQ3 1-Band" and "EQ3 7-band". - If you continue writing "EQ3 7", Pro Tools would automatically insert the 7-band eq, because there are no other options left. Hope you ...more »

Move Protools Plugin Folder

I want the ability to tell Protools where to go look for my AAX plugins (or any other plugins). Currently, you have to store all plugins on the C: drive. I use the C: drive of a Windows box for my operating system only. I have a D: drive for all my applications, sound files and plugins, and I have an E: drive for my Protools project files and song ideas. The C drive is a standard mechanical drive, and the D & E drives ...more »

Efficient, instantaneous A-B plugin comparisons

Say you want to compare 2 compressor plugins on 1 track. Right now you have to bypass one, then un-bypass the other, so there's a gap in the comparison. It's A-C-B, not truly A-B. Or, you have to duplicate the track and put one comp on one and the other comp on the other; mute one track; put the 2 tracks in a mix group; click either mute to toggle which track is muted. Once you've made your choice, ungroup and delete ...more »

Plugin Groups

Plugin groups would be just like mix and edit groups. there could be 2 different types of plugin groups. control groups that link parameters so that when you change a parameter, it changes globally on all plugins in that group that are the same plugin. the other would be bypass groups which you could link any plugin to the group and bypass all the plugins in the group globally. i have a lot of tracks that are doubled ...more »
