"Write on stop" automation commands on each track

I would like to be able to choose for each track how to operate with write on stop automation commands.

In audio post, I work by stem, mixing voices, then adding SFX, and then music.
I often use the write to next point, or to the end command when beginning my work on a stem, but I disengage it when a first pass is done.

So it would be great to be able to disengage write on stop for "finished" tracks (i.e. dialog track,... more »

Interrupted Selection for Automation

Similar to noncontinuous edit selections and their editing (like applying clip gain to multiple object-selected noncontinuous clips),
there could be the possibilitiy to perform automation on multiple noncontinuous selections.
Object-selected noncontinuous clips will generate a noncontinuous timeline selection and performed actions like automation will only be written to the selected clips and not to non-selected clips.... more »

Plugin-Chain Plugin/Effects Rack Plugins including Automation

This idea has to have been brought up in the past, but I couldn't locate it with the search engine. What I'm talking about is a plugin that is basically an effects rack of plugins. If you have seen Nomad Factory Magma or Blue Cat Audio Patchwork, then you are already familiar with the concept I'm talking about. The difference between those 2 plugins being that you would be able use any of the plugins you have regardless... more »

Import From Session and Save Presets without automation

Currently it is not possible to import an instrument or retrieve a preset for a track without also importing its automation from the previous session. So every time you use any of the two features, you have to proceed to erase that automation after, track by track.

I think that this behavior is not the correct way it should work, and it should be adjusted by default to NOT importing / saving the automation, but the plugings,... more »

Write-to-Current in Stop, but take the End Value for the Selection until Start

During stop, after automation has been written or when editing automation, it is possible with Write-to-Current and a selection made, to assign the value at the start of the selection to be written over the whole selection.
I often find myself wishing to write the value at the end of the selection to be written to the whole selection.
The shortcut could be (Win) : Ctrl + Start + / (numpad).
(Yes, during an automation... more »

Scrollwheel for Vol Automation, allow Preference for Increment per Detent

For volume automation, the scrollwheel of the mouse can be used to write/change the value, if the output window of a track is opened and the volume value is highlighted.
Right now, the increments are very small, like 0.1 dB per detent.
There could be a preference of how many dB one detent of the scrollwheel changes (like 0.1 or 0.5 or 1.0 or 2.0 or ...).
Like with nudging clip gain.
Changing the vol automation value with... more »

Type in automation breakpoint values

I waste so much time messing around with automation breakpoints trying to fine adjust to get them in the right place. I recently started learning Cubase, and found it incredibly useful to be able to manually set the time and value of automation points.

Pro tools already has this functionality in the main counter when it comes to other selections such as clips or midi notes. So if you could just select automation breakpoints,... more »

Automatic Pop-up of additional Automation Lane when clicking further plug-in parameters

Start+Ctrl-clicking (Win) a plug-in parameter sets the track view to that automation lane.
A new command like e.g. Shift+Start+Ctrl-clicking on another parameter of this plug-in would automatically open an additional automation lane.
This avoids clicking on the little triangle and searching in a long list of parameters in the drop down menu.
Useful to quickly display only those automation lanes for further editing, that... more »

allow trim automation for ANY (plugin) parameter

Right now trim automation is only possible for volume automation. It would be great to have trim automation for any parameter, including panning and plug-in parameters. There's absolutely no reason why this wouldn't be possible. Right now it's totaly ridiculous that you have to grab that mouse to fine tune any non-volume automation parameter even if you're sitting behind a quadrillion dollar Avid console. This is an absolute... more »

Make "Convert Volume Automation To Clip Gain" available in PT Standard

"Convert/Coalesce Volume Automation To Clip Gain" & "Convert/Coalesce Clip Gain To Volume Automation" are currently only available in the HD version of Pro Tools. As it is not a feature that requires special processing power or an expansion of I/O possibilities it should be made available to all Pro Tools users.
