Set Independent Track Widths In Pro Tools Mix Window

Under "View" we can change the width of all the tracks in the Mix Window to either standard (Wide) or Narrow. The only drawback to the narrow view is that plug-ins and track names become heavily abbreviated making it a challenge to quickly read a plug-in or track name

I would like to have the choice of track widths in the mix window. A typical mix window arrangement I would like to see in a future Pro Tools Mix Window... more »

Customize TRACK>DUPLICATE naming. Suffix "DUP" wastes space & time

Does ANYBODY need the auto-generated suffix ".dup" instead of just counting up "1"?

SPACE for track names is very limited. Deleting "dup" just wastes TIME. Even by batch.


Quick Solution: Just drop "dup"

Final Solution: Customizable control over dot / suffix / count-up behavior

Track height - lock

It would be great to be able to lock track height or a group track height. I know one can make memory location to set and retrieve various track heights - however this would be faster.... particularly in post production editing and mixing movie soundtracks, when there can be hundreds of tracks, it would be helpful to lock track heights to a small size and still be able to see them on the screen but keep them small while... more »

BASIC EDITING of 'frozen' clips - like Ableton Live

After using the 'track freeze function' I wanted to trim and duplicate a portion of 'frozen' audio, but Pro Tools 12.4 does not allow this.


It would be good to allow basic editable functions of frozen audio clips, like functionality found in Ableton Live 9 software. Using Ableton we can currently move; edit, cut, copy, paste and trim AFTER tracks have been frozen.

Edit View Separator Track / Space

I would love to be able to see more visual separation of sections of my mix in the edit view window.

I often find myself putting in extra tracks to act as separators between elements in my mix.

If I could insert a dedicated 'separator' track - that looked unique in some way - it would work well as a quick visual reference for navigating my way around the more complex mixes.

Even just the ability to add empty space... more »

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 »

Muted Track Volume Levels Shown Greyed Out

What if all muted tracks/channels would show their volume levels in a dark grey (dull) colour?
Often in big sessions it's a bit confusing (to me) seeing all the (muted) coloured levels jumping up and down without hearing them. In my opinion this feature would improve the general overwiew in the mix window.
There could be a tick box in the preferences to allow muted track volume levels to be shown greyed out.
Does anyone... more »

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 »

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 »
