Horizontal markers !

Cubase to add one or more additional rules at any level of the editing window. For example, between the tracks of different types. This function is very useful to divide clearly floors all tracks. However, Avid could innovate with another way: simply invent horizontal markers! These markers, placed between the tracks or track groups, etc., would help the general division and would be really great.

I'm new to Pro Tools and I am currently building an orchestral template. I would like to group my tracks together such as pianos as one group or strings as another but the template could end up being very large so hence it would be nice to collapse these groups with a single action or button or shortcut but still have a single track of them. One track that has multiple tracks in it and subtracks in those. That way i could... more »

Laggy Meters in PT 12.5.0 when you open certain plugins & move parameters

This might also be a message to pass onto all 3rd party plugin developers as well as the Avid plugin developers.


Some plugins cause PT 12.5.0 Meters to lag while you move the parameters (or even the mouse when the plugin is open).


My setup: 12 processor 3.46Ghz Mac Pro Mid 2010, OSX latest El Capitan, 128GB RAM, PT 12.5.0 HDX.

Hide / Show Tracks, Aux, VCAs, Masters with a click in Mix Window

I mix some bands that use a complete classical orchestra plus drums, guitars,keyboards, etc... They give me up to 250 tracks to mix, that added to my own tracks for auxiliars, submixes, VCAs, masters, etc make my sessions to reach sometimes the 300 tracks in a mix. Thanks ProTools 12, the number of voices will never be a problem again. But navigating though that amount of tracks is more than a pain.

Choose which tracks have to Wide Meters "individually"

This way you can set your Sub Groups as Wide Meters while all the other normal tracks remain as Normal, which means you can quickly Identify the Sub Groups because they will stand out.

Import Session Data: Track Names as an option when Matching Tracks

For film and TV: If I send a session from a template to an editor (or several), who does some work and changes track names to something helpfully descriptive (Cars 1-4, Rain 1-8, etc.), I'd like to be able to match tracks back into my master session, and include their changed track names as well as the clips.

As it currently works, matching tracks and importing gives you of course plenty of options, but updating the... more »

Add an INPUT MONITORING BUTTON to instrument tracks

I would like to see Instrument tracks have an ' input monitoring button ' ..., the same as Audio Tracks do.

Many people actually rehearse their gig ....,

- or others who like JAM along via Pro Tools on a Macbook Pro's etc with a decent low latency Interface hooked up to their rehearsal room P.A's , and once in a blue moon they may actually record with it.... more »

Unlimited Instrument Tracks

Please allow for unlimited instrument and MIDI tracks in all versions of Pro Tools. For composers running enormous Vienna Ensemble Pro templates this is essential. Avid would be crazy to not allow for this — I'm sure many others like me would prefer to not have to jump ship for Cubase or other DAWs that don't impose arbitrary track limits.

Import Session Data "Match Tracks"- option to match based on waveforms instead of track names

It is my understanding that the match tracks function currently only looks at track names (correct me if I'm wrong).

There are times when tracks get renamed in a newer version of the session, but the waveforms stay the same. The match tracks function no longer works in cases like this.

This is very common, especially when creating a BWAV ADM from a .atmos file. When you create a PT session from a BWAV ADM, it gives... more »

Commit Tracks on aux track improvement

When committing aux tracks you often get a lot of silent clips. Committed clips is created even if no audio is sent to the aux track.

In the what's new in Pro Tools 12.3 document it says:
"Committed Auxiliary Input tracks reference the clip boundaries from audio tracks routed to the input of the Auxiliary Input track and preserve them whenever possible."

This is not very useful in large session where you can end up... more »
