Pro Tools bugs

Selection Memory Locations with Absolute Reference Remain Relative When Session Start Timecode Changes

When changing the session start time in the Session Setup window, Pro Tools seems to erringly override Selection memory locations that have Absolute time references and treats them as relative instead (a bug).

To reproduce:

1) Make a PT session with at least one track and one region
2) Create a Selection memory location with an Absolute time reference (not Bar | Beat). Note the timecode.
3) Open Session Setup window,... more »

Track- and playlistbased markers

I wished for a long time, to have the opportunity, to switch the marker in a track- or playlistbased mode. It could be inserted in the marker menu. When I activate trackbased markers, the markers are shown in the marker ruler but with the specific trackcolor. The difference between trackbased and playlistbased would be, that playlistbased markers will vanish, when I change the playlist. If I would made a track inactive... more »

Locate by Marker

PT Control should include a view where you can look at and locate to (maybe even create) markers. There are soft keys for editing so why not have a better method of selecting regions, like from a marker to a marker. I do this all the time in the DAW, PT Control should as well, otherwise, it's editing soft keys are not useful to me.

CLIP MARKERS - markers that follows playlist clip waveforms plus short-cut keys

This would make marking places on "takes" in playlist clip possible without cluttering the main marker lane with markers that may not apply to the current playlist(s)... along with short-cut keys that can automatically name clip markers with different names on different keys on the fly when recording.

Make the Ruler a Special Track.

I have long advocated for making the Ruler a Track. If it were a track it could enjoy all the benefits of playlists. Ruler Playlists would solve many of the wishes I have seen users ask for regarding the ruler. For example, when editing a song, markers become irrelevant to their original intent. With Ruler Playlists, a duplicate of the origin ruler could be made and the newly created Ruler Playlist could be named for,... more »

''Chords'' and ''Markers'' in the big counter

Will be great for musicians and producers to see the chords in the big counter, specially in recording session situations. I've seen this option in old softwares of big mix consoles.

Important: An option for MIDI chord recognition, and send them directly to the chord rule. AVID Sibelius is the best example for this option.

Ability to edit Marker location on timeline by manually entering in absolute value

Title pretty much sums it up. In Pro Tools 11 and up please allow the ability to edit a Marker's place on timeline by manually entering in an absolute value (the value would be whatever counter mode you are in, ie timecode, min:sec, samples...). I know a few other DAWs that have been able to do this for quite some time.

The new timeline location edit could happen in the "Edit Memory Location" dialog (accessed either... more »

Playlists for Markers

How about playlists, found on the tracks, to be featured on markers.


I like to import different arrangement markers and currently, I have to save them to a new session with a reference track and import into my track when I write.


It would be really good to group, say, a reference track and a marker track and switch up different arrangements from markers. Pretty cool!,

Markers Clear Numbering

When a marker is created, it auto creates a marker number. It's possible to jump to this marker number using the shortcut .(marker number). on the numeric keypad.
All well and good, but actually keeping tabs on which marker number is which is less straightforward that it might be.
Why not have the marker number written in text within the small yellow shield symbol in the marker lane? That should be easy to implement,... more »

Memory Location improvements



When creating memory locations, it would be faster to make an option that changes the default Time-Properties of the new Mem-Loc like so:

* When my selector is within a range - Default a Selection

* When my selector is just a on the grid without a range - Default to Marker




Another option is to Enable CMD + ARROWS to change the Time Properties (Just like creating a new track).

Select all "Selection" markers in Memory Location Window



I don't understand why we can't select more than one selection marker.. I get it for regular markers as the playhead follows but a selection marker is an in/out point and would be great if I could select all 50 selected regions and copy them to a new track... Unless there is an existing way to do this I have not been able to figure out.

Horizontal markers !

Cubase to add one or more additional rules at any level of the editing window. For example, between the tracks of different types. This function is very useful to divide clearly floors all tracks. However, Avid could innovate with another way: simply invent horizontal markers! These markers, placed between the tracks or track groups, etc., would help the general division and would be really great.
