Big mixes require good organization, it would be great to be able to have track folders (for example-for your 32 tracks of drums!)
to check mixes in mono.
A trim knob that works like the plugin placed before the channel plugin path would be nice. This would help in facilitating proper gain staging of tracks that are recorded too hot or too soft without using up a plugin slot.
I would like to have a smart, half-automated way for cleaning up sessions after a mix is done.
The function should allow me to remove unused playlists, consolidate all audio files, delete unused audio regions and put everything in a new folder that contains only the audio needed for the session.
A build-in plugin manager that would allow you to turn plugins on or off AND clearly specifies the correct versions of the installed plugins. After restarting Pro Tools your plugins would then be turned on or off according to the settings you made in the plugin manager. It would be fantastic if it could be done WITHOUT a restart of Pro Tools, BUT even if i do have to restart Pro Tools this would make such a difference... more »
I could really use an in-session documentation feature. I always include a RTF file with a log of my hours that I worked and what I did. It would be nice if PT had a feature that would log my hours and allowed me to comment on this log and then print or export it. This would be a simple feature to program and would make documentation much easier to keep on top of.
When in an automation view of a track. Tab to transient should change to tab to automation breakpoint.
Hi guys, love the software. Would really help if we could name the tracks when we set them up. I.e. when create a new track, the fields would be 1) # tracks to create, 2 ) Mono or Stereo, 3) Type of track [Aux, Audio, Instrument etc...] 4) Sample or Ticks 5) Track Names. If there are multiple tracks to create, give us the option to name ALL new tracks at the create stage, or bypass the naming at this stage. This way when... more »
I wish you could COMMAND+DRAG the already created output of a track to the input of another for quick routing. You could do this for busses too.
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 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 »
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 »
Please; make all visual reference like; edit windows scroll bar, plugin VU etc, follows playback sync. With large mixing sessions and large delays compensation in place, all visual feedback can become almost useless.
In windows 10 (and earlier) and Pro Tools 12 (and earlier), windows appear with large borders around and some even with the windows 7 look for some reason.
It looks clumsy and also wastes space.
It is time that Pro Tools fixes this, probably by making custom designed window borders.
Attached is a draft of what it could look like.
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.
