Presets for 'import session data' elements

I do a lot of session data import when I switch to a new mix using that terrible pull-down menu to select different options, which is cumbersome.

I'd like to set presets for elements I often use, (similar to window configuration) and be able to pull that up instantly.

Pro tools 12 Channel Preset

This feature would give you the ability to save your favorite track presets so that you can recall them later. If you didn't take the picture, I will explain a little better. Imagine if you have that perfect sound in one piano once. You can store that preset including the VI Instrument if the case, and you can recall it later. this feature would open an ocean of possibilities like save, presets for voices, busses, VI's, ...more »

PT 12.6.0 bug: Fix CMD-click fine tuning of trim automation

As per title. CMD-clicking a trim automation node in PT 12.6.0 does not give 0.1 dB fine tuning of the automation, instead it snaps the node to the grid, even in slip mode. CMD-clicking regular volume automation still works as expected. (The current workaround is using the "extreme" track height temporarily)

Full support for MXF OP1a files

Pro Tools has support for MXF. Unfortunately, there are tons of different flavors of MXF around... As a broadcaster, we use OP1a files, containing video and 16 tracks of audio. Pro Tools only imports the Video from these files. (Kind of odd for DAW software, no?) Pro Tools currently only imports audio from MXF OPAtom files, which have separate files for audio and video. Since our complete workflow - from ingest to playout ...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 »

MIDI issues in PT 12

In PT 12.5 and 12.4 the midi functionality is so buggy as to be unusable. There are multiple issues - stuck notes, crashes, etc.

Audio Wild Record / Audio Clip Selection "Clip Source Window"

The Ability to record in the "Clip Source Window" a wild mono or stereo track, where the clip ends up in the Clip menu or a specified folder i.e Wild VO Records, saves a lot of time and maintains a clean timeline, rather than having to navigate through unneeded extra

tracks and clips on the timeline which is very time consuming. please see attachment.

Capture Half Speed Playback?

You know those occasional moments when you hit shift+play and get half speed/octave lower playback.... and it sounds AMAZING!

 

Just had one of those moments.... I wish there was a way of capturing that as an audio file.

Mute MIDI when freezing tracks

Currently (PT 12.8), when freezing instrument tracks, it will not mute the MIDI output of that track automatically. So, for example, if you're routing several instrument tracks to one instance of Kontakt, when you freeze the tracks, unless you mute the MIDI output of each one manually, they'll still play in the background and use up resources. The feature I'm requesting is to simply make it so whenever you freeze a ...more »

Retrieve tags from CAF Audio Loops files

With the introduction of SoundBase with ProTools 12.7, I've noticed that if you don't like to download the provided free soundbank and want to use existing Apple Loops library installed with Logic, it doesn't retrieve the tags from those CAF files, but it can play them without problems.

 

I think it would be very very productiive having this feature!
