Midi real time controls behave like Logoc Pro X

Please have the midi real time controls behave like Logic Pro X so while you are playing a midi clip you can fine tune and adjust midi data (quantize, velocity, etc) with sliders. This would eliminate hitting "Apply". Truly in realtime and accessible in the midi window like Logic Pro X's midi editor window on the left. Logic has collapse mode which gives focus to only the data recorded and not the whole piano roll. Very... more »

make independent record enabling for Audio vs MIDI/Instrument a switchable preference!

I saw they fixed this "bug" - 'Record enabling for MIDI/Instrument tracks are once again independent from record enabling on Audio tracks. (PT-239401)' but personally I'm sad about that!

As a music creator, I go back and forth between recording guitar and VIs constantly. With latch record off, I expect that the last track I record enabled is the only one record enabled. It's unintuitive for me to have the behavior be... 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 »

A.I. Drum Tracks

To me, one of the top features in Logic (and even GarageBand), but missing from ProTools, is this: Being able to put down a drum track, tell it where to play, tweak the complexity/loudness/fills/swing/etc, and straight away get a pretty decent 'human'-sounding drum track. It's also possible to have it 'follow' audio tracks and more effectively pick out a rhythm. It can even be copied to a MIDI track, tweaked and put to... more »

MIDI Editor Window track record enable button

In the MIDI editor, you can solo and mute the track you're working on, but you can't record-enable it. You also can't tell if it may already be record-enabled. It would really help my workflow to be able to quickly pop into record without flipping back to either the mix or edit windows to know what track(s) are currently record enabled and be able to modify that from here.

 

Thanks!

Midi Import track names and assignment to general midi patches or like named instruments.

I was the Pro Tools "expert" at a DAW competition at Berklee College of music earlier in January 2018.
Many features had me winning over Logic, Ableton and Garage band. One that made Pro Tools look inept was what happened when importing an elaborate MIDI file. This was one that had a decent mock up 30+ tracks of the score from Raiders of the Lost Ark.
All the other DAW's read the midi track names on import. PT12.8.3 did... 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.

Add an INPUT MONITORING BUTTON to instrument tracks

I would like to see Instrument tracks have an ' input monitoring button ' ..., the same as Audio Tracks do.

Many people actually rehearse their gig ....,
- trigger samples to tempo maps etc running in pro tools,,
- or others who like JAM along via Pro Tools on a Macbook Pro's etc with a decent low latency Interface hooked up to their rehearsal room P.A's , and once in a blue moon they may actually record with it.... more »

Mute MIDI when freezing tracks

Currently (PT 12.8), when freezing instrument tracks, it will not mute the MIDI output of that track automatically.

So, for example, if you're routing several instrument tracks to one instance of Kontakt, when you freeze the tracks, unless you mute the MIDI output of each one manually, they'll still play in the background and use up resources.

The feature I'm requesting is to simply make it so whenever you freeze a... more »
