It would be nice to have a Redbook CD authoring system included within protools similar to CD architect.
It would eliminate the awfully slow process of importing session data, copying plugins, deleting tracks, etc.
(Changed from "Channel Strip Presets" to avoid confusion with the Channel Strip plug-in.)
Here is a non-exhaustive list of improvements, if you have any more please add to comments.
If I solo the 'Drum Aux' all tracks associated with that Aux should play, it is silly I have to solo all the tracks manually.
If I have a delay and reverb send on my Vocal channel, when I solo the Vocal channel, I should also hear the delay and reverb. Yes, I can 'solo safe'... more »
When you are producing a track that is so annoying and it takes you out of your creative flow.
I know no other sequencer on the market that has this issue. And this can't be a CPU or a Ram issue because the competition clearly... more »
When assigning a group to a VCA Track, Pro Tools could Auto rename the VCA Track to the name of the group that you assigned to it.
ie: assigning group named "Drums VCA" would change the name of the VCA to "Drums VCA"
I use and update a mix I/O setup that currently contains several hundred busses, each for a specific job for a specific instrument (e.g. Bus Drums, Drum Effect 1 etc.). When I want to assign these busses in the edit or mix window, the busses are presented to me in groups of 128 (see attached picture), which can be extremely... more »
Select Clips by Color will really help to extent your workflow.
- When recording dialogue/Foley/Soundscapes and selecting the best takes.
- Preparing ADR & Foley tracks
- Export different stems all over your session.
- And way more options
And to finish this idea, Make the colors available for Apple Script or Something else programmable.
The ability to show only audio tracks or show only VCAs or Aux etc, it would be nice if you could select a combination like Aux and VCA for example, and the option to always keep the master fader presnets.
This would be good for setting up Window Configurations that you could quickly switch between on busy mixes.
It would be awesome to have a bounce workflow that allowed to print a number of version. A tick box in the bounce window possibly. Options would be eg. Vocal +1dB, Vocal -1dB, TV mix, Vocals only etc.
At the moment I use the trim plugin as the last plugin across the voc channel and set the value there for each bounce version.
Cubse and Studio One have recently implemented this feature and I think Pro Tools should to!
I propose that when you group clips, that group is either colored differently or at the very least has a slightly different (darker or lighter shade) than the rest of the clips on that track.
Example of use in... more »
When using volume automation to attenuate harsh sounds, such as fret noise on guitars (see attached example image), it would be beneficial to have the option to render the automation to the audio offline, thus not having to bus the audio to a new track and record.
-When Zooming in to waveform level, have a vertical scale in dB at least to see when it clipped, or how far are we from clipping
-Have an option to zoom and switch to pencil tool automatically
-Also removing certain things from a sound can be super hard when you can't actually see whats going on on the... more »
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.
So it would be nice to add some functionality to an Option-Click on a send. Option-Click the send and the track view changes... more »
