Losing plugin names when loading session into alternate rig

I am in the process of upgrading to a new rig. From a 2011 MBP (I will call this RIG A) to a more current iMac (RIG B). Truth is I have the iMac on loan for a couple weeks to see if it is what I'm looking for.

Both systems run PT 11.3.2

When I load a session previously made on RIG A into RIG B the the plugin preset names show up in the Librarian menu as factory default

The settings are still there but the name of the... more »

Push Soft Knob to toggle parameter (= SEL Button)

Using Soft Knob to control plug-ins on Pro Tools I Control is great, but, switching parameters by pressing the SEL iPad button is a pain, because it's neither precise nor direct.

 

It would be great if pressing a Soft Knob would simply switch between parameters.

 

Futhermore the current behavior (parameter reset) can be achieve by Alt-touching the knob.

PT12 5.1 Audition Path on AudioSuite Preview BUG

My Main Output is a 5.1 Output. When setting my Audition Path to that, it seems to 'downmix' to a mono output on Channel 3 (Centre) when previewing in any AudioSuite Plug Ins.

Workspace Auditioning is fine though & plays out of L&R. Surely that's the same Audition Path?

Ive tried trashing Prefs & still the same

Plugin-Chain Plugin/Effects Rack Plugins including Automation

This idea has to have been brought up in the past, but I couldn't locate it with the search engine. What I'm talking about is a plugin that is basically an effects rack of plugins. If you have seen Nomad Factory Magma or Blue Cat Audio Patchwork, then you are already familiar with the concept I'm talking about. The difference between those 2 plugins being that you would be able use any of the plugins you have regardless... more »

MIDI Learn GUI

Sorry if this is a repeat request...

I think it would be great if there was a MIDI GUI where you can visually drag and connect certain functions on a MIDI controller straight to the Plug-In or other part of Pro Tools for control.

For more clarification, if a company like Akai or M-Audio or Novation took a picture of their MIDI Controller, had little blue boxes around each knob/fader/slider/etc. that can be mapped,... more »

Show/Hide Option for Plugin menus.

Half of my plug-ins have expired, however they still appear in the Audiosuite and Insert menus. With the recent craze of Pro Tools 12 and the whole "rent-a-plugin", Pro Tools is no longer asking nor moving the plug-ins without a valid licence to the unused folder. (I can understand and assume why of this behaviour because of the rent feature), but a) I don't want to see the expired plugins still showing as It is really... more »

Set default channel when opening linked multi-mono plug-ins

The feature to set default linked channel in plug-in to, for example, center when opening the plug-in. A lot of times in post we use multi-mono plug-ins and the default channel for monitoring the plug-in window is the left-channel, when it's often the case that we would like to monitor the center channel.

Signal Generator Plugin Presets Broken in Multi-Mono Mode

I tried this on multiple systems spanning multiple versions of Pro Tools. I don't know if it has ever worked properly. If I make a present of tones with all the channels unlinked, changing the preset doesn't recall all the settings for all the channels, only the currently selected channel.

For example if I have a multi-mono signal generator on a 5.1 track. I unlink the channels and change the level of the tone so each... more »

Eleven MKII Integrated Guitar Studio Environment

It is my position that Eleven MKII would be better if Avid would have included an integrated environment that allowed you to easily setup complete guitar tones in one environment. As it stands now, you have to use several inserts to setup a guitar tone with effects before/after the amp.

Since we already have the Eleven Rack Editor, remove all the stuff that is dependent on the hardware, and package all the Eleven Effects... more »

Create Pro Series EQ Plugin

I love the Avid Pro Series EQ plugins. I would love to see the same philosophies and approach applied to an EQ plugin. Something along the lines of Fab Filter's Pro Q or DMG Audio's Equality or Equilibrium. Offering a high number of bands (16+), each being able to take on any shape or filter type. A spectrum analyzer would be lovely. There are lots of great EQ plugins out there but this would round out the Pro Series... more »
