iLok "laws" are too tight

This is NOT a subject regarding the presence of or the need for copy protection systems. It is about unnecessary money driven restrictions when the need for moving licenses and/or iLoks arises. I would like to sell my Pro Tools M-Powered 8 and I'm facing the following situation. I have other licenses stored on the iLok (that came with the product). I will then move these licenses to another iLok, leaving only the M-Powered... more »


Listen to users

Some of the most popular feature requests on here were originally posted in 2009. Things like track folders, which are available in virtually every other DAW, but even more needed in Pro Tools, where film mixers have several hundred tracks to grapple with. That's a lot of scrolling. Instead of focusing on things like Atmos integration, which affects a tiny fraction of your users, please implement the features your larger... more »



fix Mbox 3 Pro

My new MBox 3 Pro is a buggy piece of equipment that desperately needs a firmware update ASAP! - May or may not connect with mac on boot up. - Headphone output may or may not function properly. - Master volume knob may or may not give erratic levels. - The gain pots on the pres behave stupidly in that there is next to no gain until the last couple of millimetres of the knob turn which makes fine tuning out of the question.... more »



Reduce pricing of multiple Avid/Pro Tools systems

I believe if Avid would do something, like reduce cost of software upgrades or extra purchases of Pro Tools software if the owner has multiple Pro Tools system, this would save cost of studios, plus make Avid software more attractive. For instance, If I had a studio with four Pro Tools systems, I can buy one for the regular price of $500, but each additional license would be about $250, or something to that extent.... more »



License the ICON network Control format

So that you get a revenue stream from: Yamaha SSL Euphonix Smart AV HUI Roland etc. etc Perhaps us editors might then get a control surface that is more sophisticated than the Command 8 but smaller than any of the Icons. Also suited to key combo button quickkeys on a touch screen with the ability to patch into an Icon on the Dub stage to do editing changes to the music (for us music editors) without the need to offload... more »



New HD Subscription Model

12.5 HD here, subscription expired end of May, not renewed. Let alone restart from $999. Not for the price in itself, but because, really, there's a lot of things I am paying for that I am not using at all. I am not interested in their support, cloud collaboration, "pro" plugins, and I don't think I am alone here. So Avid should sell a "basic" HD subscription, $ 180 - $ 200 MAX per year, including just the backbone of... more »



Application Manager needs Update All option

Updating items in the application manager is an enormous pain. I currently have 18 items that need to be updated. For each of these items, I have to: * Click Update * Click Install * Click five different Agree/Continue/etc. buttons * Enter my password That's for each item. There's no need to determine if it can be installed (it's already installed, just tell me if it CAN'T be), accept license agreement (I've already... more »



Import Session DATA option

When importing session DATA from a different session. (Let's say, for example, importing a Voice Over into a documentary from a separate VO session...) It is very handy to utilize the 'offset' feature on some occasions. I would like to propose that marker information be linked to the offset as well as the media being imported. The markers are rendered useless in this instance the way the import session data feature is... more »



Bring back the Tech Support Utility!

Bring back the Tech Support Utility for deleting preferences and databases! Digidesign used to provide a little utility app that deletes your preferences and databases automatically. It was the handiest little utility (for obvious reasons), but it has disappeared from the Avid offerings! This is simple little script that would take 15mins for a competent programmer to write. It would save a lot of time for the end... more »
