Right click on Track gives option to add or remove it from group

Right click on the track name. The resulting menu gives you the option of add to or remove the track from the groups.

Just like selecting inputs and outputs, hovering over "Add to group" gives you a drop down list with all the groups. Click the group and bam, it's added.
Hover over over "Remove from group" gives you a list of all the groups the track is in. Click the group and bam, it's not in that group anymore.

Add/remove selected tracks from group

When right-clicking a track name, these commands could be added to the context menu:

- "Add to group >" to assign one or more selected tracks to a group (eg. to join a newly-created track with an existing group);

- "Remove from groups >" to remove them from any group they belong to. Only currently assigned groups would be shown here.

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 »

Option to Exclude Tracks from ALL Group

Obviously, the ALL group is helpful, but there are some tracks (e.g. Reverb Aux, Mix-Level Aux, Instrument-Grouping Auxes, etc.) which I want to always keep at 0 dB.

It'd be great if we had a (completely optional) choice to modify the ALL group, flagging specific tracks it *shouldn't* control. If this option isn't enabled, the functionality of this group should remain completely as it is today - don't want to disrupt... more »

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 »

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

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?
