For volume automation, the scrollwheel of the mouse can be used to write/change the value, if the output window of a track is opened and the volume value is highlighted. Right now, the increments are very small, like 0.1 dB per detent. There could be a preference of how many dB one detent of the scrollwheel changes (like 0.1 or 0.5 or 1.0 or 2.0 or ...). Like with nudging clip gain. Changing the vol automation value with... more »
this happends in PT 12.4.0 -write automation to a clip by 'Write To All Enabled' -change the cliplength with the trim tool -breakpoints get lost or -add a fade-in or fade-out to the clip -move the fade-in around -> the breakpoint possition is set in the middle of the fade- -> this behaviour is wrong, and when correcting the automation by select the clip, write to all enable, all automation get's lost because there is... more »
I waste so much time messing around with automation breakpoints trying to fine adjust to get them in the right place. I recently started learning Cubase, and found it incredibly useful to be able to manually set the time and value of automation points. Pro tools already has this functionality in the main counter when it comes to other selections such as clips or midi notes. So if you could just select automation breakpoints,... more »
The commands for copying and pasting _All_ Automation data was removed from the contextual menu since version 12.3 (I believe it was this version).
Please bring them back.
Would love a quick(er) way to remove errant pan info from a clip, similar to the clip gain reset hotkey combo.
For example, take two audio tracks (i.e.dialog source tracks) and bus them to the same recording audio track (stem). Insert identical plugins on both source tracks. The plugins should be something, which plugin processing delay DEPENDS ON AUTOMATABLE PLUGIN PARAMETERS. I noticed this phenomena with Fabfilter Pro DS that has three switchable parameters (split band, look ahead, oversampling), which influence the plugin... more »
Right now trim automation is only possible for volume automation. It would be great to have trim automation for any parameter, including panning and plug-in parameters. There's absolutely no reason why this wouldn't be possible. Right now it's totaly ridiculous that you have to grab that mouse to fine tune any non-volume automation parameter even if you're sitting behind a quadrillion dollar Avid console. This is an absolute... more »
An additional "playlist" style option for each track that would let you recall plugin chains and automation sets.
This way instead of importing session data from previous mix revisions in order to undo silly client requests while still keeping all other mix revision changes you could just jump back to an other playlist of automation and plugins assignments/settings for each track individually.
There is only one feature in HD I need as it stands, and it feels kind of insane to be paying $999USD in upgrade fees to keep that feature and be on Pro Tools 12. Surround - don't care, huge numbers of tracks and I/O - don't care... please just turn on Trim.
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 »
"Convert/Coalesce Volume Automation To Clip Gain" & "Convert/Coalesce Clip Gain To Volume Automation" are currently only available in the HD version of Pro Tools. As it is not a feature that requires special processing power or an expansion of I/O possibilities it should be made available to all Pro Tools users.
Any parameter that could be automated could be controlled by a continuous LFO by linking the parameter to the LFO. For Examples: A Sine Wave LFO that controls a Frequency Cutoff of an EQ Plugin, or a Square Wave LFO assigned to a channel Pan control, or a Sawtooth LFO assigned to an FX Send. The LFO Frequency should be able to be set in Seconds, Samples, Bars/Beats, Etc. and the width and curve of the LFO's parameter... more »
Pro Tools would benefit from having recallable mix "scenes" (or Automation parameter scenes) available within a single session. Users should be able to generate and store an arbitrary number of recallable scenes. When a scene is recalled, the faders, pans, send, plug-in settings/bypass, etc all change to their saved vales. This feature can allow for a number of significant workflow improvements. It would allow: -Alternate... more »
I'd like the SEL button to also have a shift layer that enables the Trim automation mode to be toggled.
So just as the REC/A button can be used to (1) record enable a track, or (2/shifted) to toggle through automation modes; the SEL button would (1) select the track or (2/shifted) to toggle 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)
