Shortcut for making two mono audio tracks into one stereo.

Shortcut for making two mono audio tracks into one stereo. Kind of the opposite of Split Stereo Track into 2 Mono Tracks.

Show waveform content while dragging / moving

Its a bad idea not to see the waveform when you move regions. It just makes it harder to know exactly where to drop it.

Track Folders

Big mixes require good organization, it would be great to be able to have track folders (for example-for your 32 tracks of drums!)

Region/Clip Based Effects

EQ and gain parameters could be assigned to clips. This would greatly simplify automation and editing especially in post production.

VST Support!

FXPansion's VST to RTAS adapter is buggy, it crashes my system every time. Pro Tools should have it's own VST capability so us Pro Tools users can have a much wider pallet of instruments using only one DAW. That one DAW should be Pro Tools and nothing else. Does this make any sense to you guys?

Include a "Bounces" Folder When Creating a New Session

Currently when you bounce to disc, the audio file defaults to go to the regular audio folder. I always create a bounces folder in the main session folder and point all the bounces there.

 

It would be nice to have a separate folder already made when the session is made. Either in the main folder, or in the audio folder, or even have a preferences setting that lets the user decide where the bounces should go.

Bounce to WAV and MP3 at the same time

Would allow you to bounce your final mix, and save it as an mp3 as well as a wave file. Good for creating a final mix for a CD Master, and providing a client with a disc that they can use to put music online without having to convert it. And, we wouldn't have to hear the same song bounced twice.

Trim knob on audio tracks

A trim knob that works like the plugin placed before the channel plugin path would be nice. This would help in facilitating proper gain staging of tracks that are recorded too hot or too soft without using up a plugin slot.

An option to automatically mute a track as soon as it starts recording

An option to automatically mute a track as soon as it starts recording to allow monitoring using the console rather than running thru the digital interface. This gives you unlimited communication with the performers while the session is playing.

Smart Session Cleanup Function

I would like to have a smart, half-automated way for cleaning up sessions after a mix is done.

The function should allow me to remove unused playlists, consolidate all audio files, delete unused audio regions and put everything in a new folder that contains only the audio needed for the session.
