Edit and mix window showing synchronous track view when toggling

Example: Big session holding many tracks. Working in the edit window let me say on track number 48 (numbers only to show how many tracks instead of saying Git1, Piano2 etc). The track shown at the top of the edit window is for example number 46. Now when switching to the mix window, it would be a fantastic feature having track number 46 (always the track at the top of the edit window) automatically on the far left ...more »

Mixer Playlist Feature

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 »

Add mix preference: Sends default to [insert user definable number here] dB

Add mix preference: Sends default to [insert user definable number here] dB

 

In addition to the 'Sends default to -INF' pref, it would be great to have another option that allows the used to set a value.

 

Thanks for voting this idea up.

Change the Color of Break Points in the Meters

You can adjust the color break point of your meters, but you can't adjust the colors themselves. It's forced by default as:

 

Dark Green

Light Green

Yellow

(Red for Clip)

 

I would like to set the color theme of the signal in the meter so it matches my Mixing Desk to:

 

Dark Green

Dark Yellow

Dark Red

(Bright Red for Clip)

 

Allow the user to set their own colors for meters please.

More/Several Mixing Windows for Master or Headphones section

Add the possibility to open 2 or 3 mix windows, in order to simplify visualisation for multiple screen users.

for example you can open a mixing window on a specific screen just for headphones and/or master section, and keep tracks only on your main screen(s).

VCA PAN

There are few things that I want to group as much as a pan - having groups panned by the VCA would be awesome!! Before anyone suggests otherwise, I know what a traditional VCA is... and in addition to this, I want to pan before I reach an aux/bus - for instance if you want to creat an object with panning information in it that you then rotate / pan.

Mix Groups containing Tracks of different Channel Count but with the same Inserts : allow linking Parameters

Example : a mix group containing 1 mono and 2 stereo audio tracks, all 3 with an Eq37 on insert "a", mix attributes set to insert control/bypass. All 3 Eq's have the same low cut enable, the same low cut freq, the same ... , but when moving the , e.g., low cut freq in the mono track Eq, only that one moves, not the low cut freq of the Eq's of the stereo tracks.
