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!)

Keyboard As MIDI Controller

This is a MUST now that Pro Tools is more mobile. Ableton has it and Logic both have it. It is a necessity for easily auditioning Software Instruments or even laying down ideas on the go - ie on a laptop. Why this hasn't been implemented into Pro Tools yet is absolutely mind blowing. Solution: It is very simple. Just like there is a keyboard focus button which activates all the shortcuts there could be a "Midi Keyboard" ...more »

Enhanced "Comments"

1. An expandable panel in the mixer would be really helpful.

 

2. A bigger comments that sits like the regions bin. A lot of us write songs in Pro Tools and have to use a text editor to do so. With this addition we could write lyrics as we produce which would be awesome.

Right click on Track gives option to add or remove it from group

Right click on the track name. The resulting menu gives you the option of add to or remove the track from the groups. Just like selecting inputs and outputs, hovering over "Add to group" gives you a drop down list with all the groups. Click the group and bam, it's added. Hover over over "Remove from group" gives you a list of all the groups the track is in. Click the group and bam, it's not in that group anymore. This ...more »

MIDI note names in MIDI Editor

Take a page from Cubase's book and have an option (or default) where each note in the piano roll of the MIDI Editor also displays it's note name.

 

In dense parts or score, being able to quickly read where a "bad" note is or how the part is laid out in Piano Roll mode would make life SOOOOOOO much better for those of us writing music daily.

 

Attached picture is low-res, but you get the idea.

Enable Typing-In of Automation and Other Values

With automation spots, faders, etc. it'd be great to see an option where I can right-click and select 'Type in Value...' to get a pop-up or something like that. This could probably be used in a number of places throughout the app without really requiring the basic GUI to become more cluttered. Sliders & dials are great, sure, but sometimes it can be tough to get exactly the desired value, even when pressing Cmd. In ...more »

Clip Bin Folders

Suggest to add a user created directory of folders in the clip bin. Drag and drop - moving parent or sub-clips into folders for easier management of files in the pro tools main window.

Drag&Drop + Copy&Paste of SoftKeys For Quick Rearrangement in EuControl

It takes a lot of time setting up SoftKeys. Especially because one can only edit them one at a time. When I want to adjust the layout of SoftKeys to fit my workflow better, I need to delete a SoftKey and in that place, set up a completely new key from scratch. But the key I'm looking for is there, just on another page. I cannot copy and paste it, which would save me a lot of time. I need to create it from scratch. Also, ...more »

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 »

Search and Filter for Commands in EuControl

It takes a lot of time setting up SoftKeys. It would be nice if this time-consuming process could be made simpler and faster. For example, EuCon is very powerful and covers probably hundreds of features. Instead of having to know where a function is in the menu hierarchy, a find as you type would be great! This way, you don't have to search through all the menus, just type a word and the list filters by this word and ...more »

Multi-Selection of SoftKeys For Editing And Re-arranging In EuControl

Sometimes you just want to delete a whole bund of SoftKeys, or move them somewhere else. It would be great if one could select more than one SoftKey and then drag and drop it somewhere or at least delete them all in one go and not having to select each one of them one by one and clicking "Clear".
