When a clip has a cleared section in the middle, and the remaining portions of the clip have not been moved, it used to be that you could select the cleared area and use the Heal Separation command on it. See image. My workflow has always been: 1. Click in the gap 2. Ctrl-Tab (Windows) to set the selection to the previous boundary (the end of the first clip) 3. Shift-Tab to select to the following boundary (the start ...more »
In PT 12.8 on Win7, using keyboard shortcuts for soloing, muting, record enable, etc. sometimes will be applied to all members of a group immediately after the group has been disabled via keyboard shortcut. For example, create a group designated by letter a. With keyboard focus on GROUPS: 1. type "a" to enable the group 2. type "s" to solo the group 3. type "s" to unsolo the group 4. type "a" to disable the group 5. Select ...more »
PT upgrades/updates always replace my perfectly good, up to date iLok software, and botch it so that I have to download it from PACE, reinstall it, and reboot an extra time. Just happened again with 12.8. Pure waste of time. Give us the option to skip it, please! Applies to all versions on all platforms.
I find myself often importing new files to RX in order to set them to a normal loudness prior to importing them to Pro Tools. It would be handy if there were an option for files dragged from the Clips Bin (maybe via modifier keys) to analyze the loudness using a standard like LUFS and automatically adjust the overall Clip Gain to a user-specified standard long-term loudness level. That way, waveform heights will already ...more »
Option-drag copies a plugin with its settings to another track. Allow same to all selected tracks by adding Shift. It's currently possible to add the same plugin to all selected tracks, but only with default settings. It's currently possible to copy a plugin with settings to another track, but not to multiple tracks at once. It would be nice to be able to do both.
Open the Undo History window. Use the Window menu to uncheck Undo History. The Undo History window stays open, and either the Mix or Edit window closes, depending on which is "in front" of the other. I discovered this because I use keyboard-shortcut-triggered macros to open and close windows that have menu listings but no Avid-assigned shortcut. It started with 12.x, I think. Maybe 11.x. I know it was fine in 9.x and ...more »
Idea scale won't accept the community discussion URL: http://duc.avid.com/showthread.php?t=375398&highlight=default+crossfade&page=2 According to the latest Pro Tools Reference Guide, p. 106, "To apply a Fade In, Fade Out, or Crossfade to an Edit selection using the Default Fade settings, and without opening the Fades dialog, press Command+Control+F (Mac) or Control+Start+F (Windows)." Instead the keyboard command applies ...more »
In Pro Tools 11 with a 48 kHz session, when bouncing to WAV and mp3 at the same time, the resulting mp3 is at 44.1 kHz and reports its length incorrectly (a few seconds short). Obviously, the mp3 sample rate cannot be the same as the session rate for rates above 48 kHz. But it should be for 44.1 and 48 kHz sessions. A drop-down menu should be provided to choose the target rate at least for high rate sessions, and preferable ...more »
If a Find operation has been done on the Clip bin, such that not all clips are listed, only listed clips can be renamed, even if they're selected on a timeline. It should be possible to rename a clip that's in use, even if it's not currently showing in the Clips bin.
Currently, linking the pan knobs for a stereo track forces them to be identical (or mirrored), which sums them to mono, defeating the main purpose of stereo tracks. The link should maintain their relative positions. In the unlikely event that someone wanted to collapse a stereo track to mono while continuing to use twice the resources, they could always set them the same prior to linking.
Especially from iZotope RX. I'd say Peak, too, if it weren't sadly defunct. Peak and RX read each other's regions and markers perfectly and automatically, so I know it's not proprietary data. It's an unnecessary pain to have to take screen shots and manually recreate location data.
Specifically iZotope RX. I would say Peak, too, if it weren't sadly defunct. RX and Peak read each other's markers and regions, so I know it's not proprietary data. If PT could read them, too, I wouldn't have to take screen shots of everything after clean up work.
