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 »
It would be great to have an option on ideascale.com to view only new or unread or unvoted ideas since last login. There are now 779 ideas on the site and this would help. Thx.
Approving and supporting third party drivers/software (Mackie Universal Driver)for firewire mixers like Mackie and Allen&Heath to be used with Pro Tools LE.
I would like to buy a Pro Tools manual as an actual book. Make it available in the online Avid Store, please.
If I have any version of the MBox and a full, updated copy of PTLE, why do I have to purchase another full copy of PTLE to gain access to a second MBox form factor? There should be a lower priced hardware-only purchase option that is separate from the software license. This will increase purchases of your lower-end interfaces such as the MBox Micro which are meant to be a method of taking PTLE portable on the same machine... more »
I would like to see ilok authorizations which said "Velvet 1.3" instead of "Velvet", so that when my "Velvet" suddenly stopped working when I was forced to upgrade to the thousand-dollar version of Pro Tools 10, I would know immediately that it was because I have not also paid the additional $50 Avid wants for me to upgrade from Velvet 1.x.x to Velvet 1.3. Seeing this version number on ALL my iLok autos would make these... more »
Every time I look on here there are 0 ideas in review or in progress.
I don't see any indication of participation from Avid programmers.
Is anyone from Avid actually looking at these suggestions?
In light of the move to thunderbolt away from PCIe in newer computers (especially Macs), I would like to see Avid offer some kind of hardware exchange of the PCIe HD Native card to the Thunderbolt HD Native interface. I know we can use a chassis, but this would be more convenient (and we don't have to deal with fans/noise). It should be a reasonably priced exchange (no more than a cheap chassis). Eligibility could... more »
Will make it much easier for users to find help with their platform.
Will also prevent people who are knowledgeable on either platform from having to sift through threads.
Thanks Avid :D
Would be nice to have the color palette built right into the "Create New Tracks" dialog, this would help reduce a bit of time by creating the tracks with a color already assigned to it.
How about selling the ProTools course books e.g. 110, 201, 210, 310? They are a great reference source and would generate revenue for Digidesign. If we wanted to "upgrade" and sit the exam(s), we could pay an additional fee.
especially for bug reporting
so you can go computer>ilok>interface on 1 port
>100 Threads >250 MB RAM 30-40% CPU usage on a 2.6GHz i7 That's a pretty typical usage I'm seeing from a combination of the 'AvidApplicationManager' and 'AvidAppManHelper' processes on macOS 10.12.4, which by default are always running! Furthermore, the app manager is also causing huge slowdown on system startup, sometimes immobilizing it for up to 10 minutes. These are way more resources than any update manager should... more »
I have my PCIe cards in a top cover removed Magma EB7 with the fans unplugged- out in the open in my studio which is temperature controlled. I have a UAD-2octo, various SSD's on Sonnet cards, RME-MADI card and HDX-2. All the cards are barely lukewarm warm to the touch even under heavy load. Are the HDX card fans temperature sensitive? They spin up to full the moment protools launches. Is there's a temperature... more »
