Support the Native Kontrol Standard (NKS)

It would be great if Pro Tools joined the other major DAWs in supporting the Native Kontrol Standard. This would add the fast browsing in instrument libraries and include the pre-mapped parameters on the controller by any 3rd party instrument plugin provider. As a bonus I would recommend to allow the knobs and faders on the controller to control the mix and any Avid or 3rd party mixing plugin (EQs, compressors, reverbs ...more »

Shortcut for Instrument Tracks

It would be wonderful to be able to create shortcuts to open specific Virtual Instruments on new Instrument tracks. Presently, to instantiate Kontakt, I have to use the New Track command, use the key commands to choose Stereo and Instrument, and hold-and-scroll through a sizable number of VIs until I get to Kontakt. (or any other VI) I would love to get this down to one command. Even if it's a sequence of actions ...more »

EuCon control of Midi CCs

Have any EuCon controller map a Pro Tools track's Midi CC controls. In the case of the Artist Mix, it would control up to the first 8 midi CCs that are assigned to a channel. Cubase can control Midi CCs by its Quick Control feature, and this is activated on the controller by pressing and holding the EQ button on an Artist Mix (other controllers may vary), it would seem sensible to follow the same convention. It would ...more »

add search box to the command section of the soft keys tab in EuControl

EDIT: sorry, apparently this has just been posted by someone else: http://protools.ideascale.com/a/dtd/Search-and-Filter-for-Commands-in-EuControl/241035-3779

Please report this idea as a duplicate, since I cannot do that myself.

 

would be a great timesaver, especially since not all protools commands are available in this section.

Add Eucon option to disassociate keyboard modifiers from control surface

Please add an option to disassociate the computer keyboard modifier keys from Eucon control surfaces. I am often recording/editing on a Pro Tools session at the same time the engineer is operating the control surface. If I am using the OPTION key and he touches a fader at the same time, it jumps to 0dB.

nested VCA spill workflow improvements

When using a VCA within a VCA, it would be great if the behaviour followed the parent/child nesting model. For example. In my main drum VCA, I have sub VCA's for snare, kick, close mics, far mics etc. I add the sub VCA's to the main drum VCA so that when I spill the main drum VCA, I have my sub-groups all laid out. When I enter a sub group to edit, and then return (double clicking select on far right fader) it takes me ...more »

Fader ballistics for Logic Pro (Max +6dB)

My request is fairly simple. I use 3 MC Mix and 1 MC Control with Logic Pro X. Logic's maximum fader value is +6dB, and the console's max value is +12. The last 6dB of throw is therefore useless in Logic Pro. I don't care if the number values on the surface match the ones in Logic, but I want to use the whole fader throw when I mix. You can solve this one of two ways: 1) Change the fader resolution so that the whole ...more »
