Plugin Manager With Version Indicator

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 »

Assigning plugin with search function

Would it be an idea to assign a new plugin to a track in pro tools in the same way you open an application in OSX via spotlight. Here's an example: - Click on an empty insert - Start writing the plugin's name. For example "EQ3..." - Pro tools suggests "EQ3 1-Band" and "EQ3 7-band". - If you continue writing "EQ3 7", Pro Tools would automatically insert the 7-band eq, because there are no other options left. Hope you ...more »

Fix 12.8+ Crash on Quit

I know it's not impacting everyone, but for me, going from 12.7.1 to 12.8.1 introduced a new crash which happens every time I try to quit the app: it just shows the generic 'Send to Avid' crash reporter. Apparently, the same happened for some others who tried 12.8.0 also. For me, it's completely tied to whether or not I have Guitar Rig 5.2.2 in my plugins folder or not, but there could well be other plugins related to ...more »

Efficient, instantaneous A-B plugin comparisons

Say you want to compare 2 compressor plugins on 1 track. Right now you have to bypass one, then un-bypass the other, so there's a gap in the comparison. It's A-C-B, not truly A-B. Or, you have to duplicate the track and put one comp on one and the other comp on the other; mute one track; put the 2 tracks in a mix group; click either mute to toggle which track is muted. Once you've made your choice, ungroup and delete ...more »

Move/Copy Plug-in in-between' two contiguous Plug-ins

It would be great if you could move or copy a plug-in in-between two contiguous plug-ins.

At present, we only have the option to replace one of the plug-ins and it is time-consuming dragging plug-ins down first to create a empty insert slot.

When hovering in-between two plug-ins a highlighted line should inform the user the dragged plug-in will be inserted in-between these plug-ins.

Command+W shortcut to close active plugin window

Currently if you have any "extra" windows open (Plugins, Markers, System Usage, etc) you can press Ctrl+Opt+Cmd+W to close ALL extra windows. Cmd+W only closes the Edit and Mixer windows. But while you're tweaking a plugin's parameters, THAT window is active instead (Edit & Mixer window buttons are greyed out) so Cmd+W should just close THAT plugin's window, rather than the Edit window, shouldn't it? If you open a ...more »

Plugin and Automation "Playlists"

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.
