Sequence as tab

Working with video projects or productions with multiple versions, it's always bugging me how I have to create X amount of new sessions and re-import everything, including a plethora of audio tracks, fades, plugin settings etc. all of which will be duplicated on my local drive. Wouldn't it be more simple if Pro Tools allowed us to create "Sequences" the way video editors do?
The way I see it, we could open a "new sequence... more »

Bounce dialog default file name is not highlighted

When bouncing to disk the default file name for the bounce is not highlighted. Since ProTools 11 the default file name in the Bounce dialog is not highlighted and must be clicked into where prior to PT11 the default file name was highlighted and immediately editable from the keyboard for potential renaming. When working in post this has prolonged Bounce workflows costing users more time which adds up over the course of... more »

Ordnerspuren mit VCA Funktion (Amalgamate Tracks combined with VCA Function)

Vorschlag:

- Audio und Instrumentspuren können in einer Ordnerspur zusammengefasst werden. Alle Edits, die an dieser Ordnerspur vorgenommen werden, wirken auf sämtliche sich in der Ordnerspur befindlichen Spuren.

- Es wird im Arrangier als auch im Mixfenster eine Ordnerspur erzeugt. Die beinhalteten Spuren können jederzeit durch das Aufklappen der Ordnerspur sichtbar gemacht werden. Im Arrangierfenster wird eine Ordnerregion... more »

Pro Tools bugs

Assertion Errors when importing audio - Using 'Clear Find' as a 'Solution'

I would sometimes have "Assertion Errors" when importing audio into Pro Tools from the Workspace Browser, starting in PT 11 and still happening in PT 12. It wouldn't always happen, and seemed to sometimes be fixed, then come back. This has been happening the last few years.

Recently when using Pro Tools Field Recorder Workflow in Post Production, I suddenly had an assertion error(Attachment 01) crop up when trying to... more »

Enable Pinch-to-Zoom Gestures

The majority of applications for Mac (and also some for Windows) support the two-finger pinch-to-zoom in/out gesture on touchpads, yet Pro Tools does not.

 

Cmd [ ] is great, but having this gesture-based functionality enabled would definitely make for faster workflow when moving around a session.

 

The two-finger drag works, so why not this?

Playlist Features: Add Double / Quad Comp buttons

Currently in playlist mode you have two options under the playlist name: "Solo" and "Up Arrow". When comping vocals it is very common to track a bunch of takes and make main vocals, double vocals, and quad vocals. The same could be said for comping guitar tracks or anything that needs doubles or quads. If you look on the left, those two buttons leave enough real-estate for possibly 5 more buttons. The buttons I would... more »

Option to Retain Track Height on Import

In my standard session format, I like to have, for example, each kit piece at a 'Mini' size, so it's easier to navigate. Trouble is, whenever I import that to a different session, it makes them all whatever size is being used most recently there, meaning I have to resize all 12 tracks every time!

 

Would be great if the session data import screen had a checkbox option to retain origin track height.

Option-Click on a Send to change Track View to that Sends level

Changing the track view to a sends level (or mute and pan for that matter) is ridiculously involved considering how often this task is performed, especially when all 10 sends are being used on a track. As far as I can tell, Option-clicking on a send does nothing other than open that sends fader.

So it would be nice to add some functionality to an Option-Click on a send. Option-Click the send and the track view changes... more »

Bounce Vocal Up / Down Versions in one go

It would be awesome to have a bounce workflow that allowed to print a number of version. A tick box in the bounce window possibly. Options would be eg. Vocal +1dB, Vocal -1dB, TV mix, Vocals only etc.

 

At the moment I use the trim plugin as the last plugin across the voc channel and set the value there for each bounce version.

When Clip Groups are Created, color or shade differently

When you hit command + opt + G and group a series of clips, it's currently to hard to distinguish that group short of the tiny little text at the top left, that many of us with high res monitors can barely see.

I propose that when you group clips, that group is either colored differently or at the very least has a slightly different (darker or lighter shade) than the rest of the clips on that track.

Example of use in... more »

New Waveform Editing Workflow

We should look into upgrading the way in which we currently can edit a file by drawing in a waveform, ny ideas are:

-When Zooming in to waveform level, have a vertical scale in dB at least to see when it clipped, or how far are we from clipping
-Have an option to zoom and switch to pencil tool automatically
-Also removing certain things from a sound can be super hard when you can't actually see whats going on on the... more »

Select Clips by Color

Select Clips by Color will really help to extent your workflow.

- When recording dialogue/Foley/Soundscapes and selecting the best takes.

- Preparing ADR & Foley tracks

- Export different stems all over your session.

- And way more options

 

And to finish this idea, Make the colors available for Apple Script or Something else programmable.

 

Thanks AVID!

Mixer Update - Show Only '' tracks

The ability to show only audio tracks or show only VCAs or Aux etc, it would be nice if you could select a combination like Aux and VCA for example, and the option to always keep the master fader presnets.

This would be good for setting up Window Configurations that you could quickly switch between on busy mixes.
