Option to Retain Track Height on Import

In my standard session format, I like to have, for example, each kit piece at a 'Mini' size, so it's easier to navigate. Trouble is, whenever I import that to a different session, it makes them all whatever size is being used most recently there, meaning I have to resize all 12 tracks every time!

 

Would be great if the session data import screen had a checkbox option to retain origin track height.

Enable Pinch-to-Zoom Gestures

The majority of applications for Mac (and also some for Windows) support the two-finger pinch-to-zoom in/out gesture on touchpads, yet Pro Tools does not.

The two-finger drag works, so why not this?

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.

Link/Sync Option for Nudge & Grid

Most of the time, when I change the grid size, I also ideally want the nudge values to match that new grid.

I don't want to take away the option for them to be different, but it'd be great to have a little 'Link' icon I could toggle, whereby if I change the Grid to, say, 8ths, Nudge automatically changes to 8ths too.

Having this would also help to get around the fact that the Grid +/- shortcuts don't seem to work on... more »
