Plugin Groups

Plugin groups would be just like mix and edit groups. there could be 2 different types of plugin groups. control groups that link parameters so that when you change a parameter, it changes globally on all plugins in that group that are the same plugin. the other would be bypass groups which you could link any plugin to the group and bypass all the plugins in the group globally.

i have a lot of tracks that are doubled... more »

Mix Groups containing Tracks of different Channel Count but with the same Inserts : allow linking Parameters

Example : a mix group containing 1 mono and 2 stereo audio tracks, all 3 with an Eq37 on insert "a", mix attributes set to insert control/bypass.
All 3 Eq's have the same low cut enable, the same low cut freq, the same ... ,
but when moving the , e.g., low cut freq in the mono track Eq, only that one moves, not the low cut freq of the Eq's of the stereo tracks.
And vice versa : moving a parameter in the stereo Eq does... more »

Groups sometimes stick in 12.8

In PT 12.8 on Win7, using keyboard shortcuts for soloing, muting, record enable, etc. sometimes will be applied to all members of a group immediately after the group has been disabled via keyboard shortcut. For example, create a group designated by letter a. With keyboard focus on GROUPS:
1. type "a" to enable the group
2. type "s" to solo the group
3. type "s" to unsolo the group
4. type "a" to disable the group
5. Select... more »

Resetting panning on grouped mono tracks results in crash

Community Member kudos icon + Community member
When working in surround I work with mono tracks, grouped together in sets of 5.1 (ie 6 mono tracks). Tracks are grouped as Mix/Edit and Main panning is linked within the group. When I option click the panning grid to reset the panning to default on one of tracks, Pro Tools crashes. This is repeatable and has occurred across multiple versions. If I suspend the group before reseting the panning, then no crash occurs.... more »

Grouping after you record

Make a special group feature that properly groups multiple playlists by name AFTER you record. Too many of my pro tools students learning to group are screwed when trying to assign groups after they have recorded. Why not add a group by matching playlist name..... So all playlists they end in .03 or .comp or any matching suffix get grouped?

VCA PAN

There are few things that I want to group as much as a pan - having groups panned by the VCA would be awesome!! Before anyone suggests otherwise, I know what a traditional VCA is... and in addition to this, I want to pan before I reach an aux/bus - for instance if you want to creat an object with panning information in it that you then rotate / pan.

Mirrored Playlist Editing

It would be efficient to have a way to choose mirrored playlist editing in the same fashion as mirrored Midi editing.
Especially when performing cut time or add time commands. A simple checkbox would suffice.
When moving sections of a song around this is a workflow killer.
For example. If you decide to copy and past a chorus to double it or remove an instrumental section, you need to be able to have the playlists follow.... more »

Unlimited track groups within session

Community Member kudos icon + Community member

Simple as that. Currently Pro Tools is limited to 4 sets of 26 groups - 1 group for each letter of the alphabet, 4 times over - or 104 in total. For large post production sessions (especially when working with 'multiple mono' tracks), this really isn't enough. Would dearly love to see this limitation removed

Choose which tracks have to Wide Meters "individually"

Community Member kudos icon + Community member

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.

Hidden group members follow edits

It would be great if you could hide members of a group but still have them follow group edits.
For example. Let's say that you recorded a string section with spot mics on each instrument plus room mics and a deca tree. Then you did three passes to create a full orchestra sound.
Adds up quick!
. Being able to hide most of the members of the group would make for much cleaner editing. This could be a preference that could... more »

Eucon preference to display MIX only or EDIT only groups in Channel View spill.

it would be helpful to have a eucon preference to display mix only or edit only for group assign.

There is currently no way in PT to change group ID letters and the S3 lays out the groups alphabetically, by group ID. Unless you are extremely organized and diligent with your group management, you end up with a fairly unorganized looking group list when you spill them out on the OLEDs. In PT, I manage my groups by keeping... more »

Tracks blending volume compensation

Let's paint the scenario :
You've already and succesfully blended 2 tracks together (e.g. Bass DI at 0dB + Bass MIC at -4dB)
everything seems to be perfect so you go further in your mix...
Then you want to change the balance between these 2 bass tracks, here appears the trap ! each time you increase a fader, you must decrease the other one in the same range, because each modification on a fader changes the global volume... more »
