Allow track type to be changed for empty tracks

Enable the channel width of an empty track to be changed (mono to stereo, etc.), and any empty track able to be changed to any other type (MIDI, Instrument, Aux, etc.). It should be doable in such a way that plugins don't change where possible. E.g., an Audio track with a set of plugins but no audio on it should be able to be turned into an Aux track with the same plugins and settings.

Playing / Printing Virtual Instrument Performance To An Audio Track In Real-Time Through A Bus

Very often I want to capture a VI performance on an audio track while it is being performed. I would like to do this for a many reasons, the main ones being: 1 - I've run into multiple situations where there are aspects of the performance that aren't captured with MIDI. 2 - It saves CPU by having less VI instances. I'd like to be able to live-print the VI performance to an audio track by routing the instrument track's ...more »

Latency when recording through aux to audio track

Routing from: One aux track with input from microphone Routing to: One audio track with input from said aux track Why on earth does this routing incur latency? Even in a clean session with no plug-ins, there is a 15ms delay (128 samples H/W buffer size). The idea is to print plug-ins (e.g., Slate Virtual Microphones or low latency Auto Tune) and not have to instantiate 50+ copies across a vocal dub/backing session. ...more »

adopt "abandon changes" from Cloud Collaboration into Pro Tools

it would be great to have "Abandon Changes" in Pro Tools without Cloud Collaboration. This is great if you have done some changes on a track (plugin settings pan vol auto etc) and you want to get back to where you started from without the need to "Revert to Saved..." - and this works on a track basis, not only the whole session, So you can make changes on track one, then track 2,3,4,... and then you can abandon changes ...more »

Renumbering Memory Locations Selections causes them to recall in Ruler only

Seems to be a Mac-only bug. When invoking a Selection-type memory location, the selection shows up and the audio is highlighted (on the track in focus), as expected. But if you renumber the memory location and recall it, the in and out spots are marked on the ruler, but the audio or MIDI only the current track is not selected. Steps to reproduce: 1. Open a session containing at least one audio or MIDI track 2. Make a ...more »

Import tracks in inactive state

Please let us force imported track to come in as inactive tracks. In large film sessions when you add another 300 tracks to re-balance the reels it takes forever for HDX to do the DSP "optimisation" process. Would have to be able to import as inactive to avoid closing, reopening the source session deactivating there and then save and reopen the target session again and then import. Slows down a big mix a lot.

Direct DigiLink to DigiLink connections

32 channels from one system to another using just one cable. Would help to reduce system latencies. Seems logical now that DigiLink is an independent cost, that it should be undergoing independent development. This would seem to be the easiest extension of the protocol.

 

And if this were to be implemented, then maybe down the line we could get a multiport DigiLink switch...
