Save/Load Plug-in 'chains' (common plug-ins combos)

It would eliminate the awfully slow process of importing session data, copying plugins, deleting tracks, etc.

 

(Changed from "Channel Strip Presets" to avoid confusion with the Channel Strip plug-in.)

Plugin Manager With Version Indicator

A build-in plugin manager that would allow you to turn plugins on or off AND clearly specifies the correct versions of the installed plugins. After restarting Pro Tools your plugins would then be turned on or off according to the settings you made in the plugin manager. It would be fantastic if it could be done WITHOUT a restart of Pro Tools, BUT even if i do have to restart Pro Tools this would make such a difference ...more »

Please include a spectrum analyzer with 12 or more bands in it.

This line of plugins with 8.0 is really pretty wonderful. I am so happy with em. But why not include a general use plugin for fast frequency analyzer with a nice graphic display to assist with more efficient eq adjustments.

Custom Organize plugins menu into folders & sub-folders

Let people organise the their plugins menu into folders & sub-folders the way they want. The plugin layout would be done with an Avid Standalone Application on the desktop (before loading Pro Tools) where the user can setup folders, sub-folders and place all the plugins into the desired place. It would also be possible to rename plugins to what the user wants them to be called. The setup would be saved as "User" or "Custom". ...more »

Copy Stereo plugin to Mono Track

Currently you can copy a mono plugin to a stereo track, but you can't copy a stereo plugin to a mono track. I understand the reason why, but frankly it doesn't make much sense. If the setting are the same between the channels, just apply those settings to the new mono plugin, it's not that hard. If the channels are different....then a popup window appears asking which channel you want to take settings from. Example ...more »

Rescan plugins ONLY when necessary.

I think that Pro Tools would start up much faster if it didn't have to scan all the plugins every time it starts up. it is very time consuming. Please, make it stop! Create a short cut key that rescans when we ask or something like that. Waves does this and LogicX does too.

Plugin slot "shuffle" mode.

It would be nice to have a shortcut while dragging plugins around that would shuffle the order of plugins. This way the user can experiment with the plugin chain order.

"Send to Audiosuite" button on AAX plugins

Have a button on the actual real time plugin that you're using that renders a highlighted region with Audiosuite.

 

This way you don't have to copy settings, open Audiosuite, paste settings and render.

 

Yes, I realize there is track freeze, but sometimes it's best to audition something through a real time plugin and then just render that one region, not the whole track.

Create a batch installer for Space Impulse Responses

when I switched to PT12, the plugin SPACE was installed on my system. But there was only one impulse response for each category (Church/Plates/Rooms etc) installed. I can download hundreds of IR frm AVIDs page https://www.avid.com/en/plugins/space-impulse-response-library Doing so, I can install every IR only one by one! This is not a professional way of installing a reverberation unit. It takes way to much time. So ...more »

M/S Matrix Option within Multi-Mono Plug-in Header

I utilise multi-mono instantiations of plug-ins all the time and think it is a great feature for individual L/R processing.However, the ability to process the mid and sides separately would be such a game changer! I know we could insert a M/S matrix plug-in before and after a multi-mono plug-in but that is three inserts! An option in the multi-mono plug-in header to switch to M/S mode, where of course the L channel would ...more »

Automatic Pop-up of additional Automation Lane when clicking further plug-in parameters

Start+Ctrl-clicking (Win) a plug-in parameter sets the track view to that automation lane. A new command like e.g. Shift+Start+Ctrl-clicking on another parameter of this plug-in would automatically open an additional automation lane. This avoids clicking on the little triangle and searching in a long list of parameters in the drop down menu. Useful to quickly display only those automation lanes for further editing, that ...more »
