humanize MIDI

I'd like a MIDI "humanize" function that would make random adjustments to velocity, starts and durations of selected MIDI notes. A simple dialog where the user would check or uncheck what he wants randomized (velocity, start times and durations) and how much randomization for each in ticks. The last setting entered is remembered.

This is not a new concept or idea. All other DAWs have this. Many have had it for over... more »

Intrument/midi track Notes view scroll Implemented

It irks me that the coolest basic midi editing window, where you can edit and align midi notes to an adjacent audio track right on the main timeline, has the dumbest, most frustrating vertical scroll tool. When notes are out of view above and below their scale, the only way to scroll up or down to access them is to get over to the track's keyboard at the extreme left and navigate all the way to it's top and try to get... more »

MIDI note names in MIDI Editor

Take a page from Cubase's book and have an option (or default) where each note in the piano roll of the MIDI Editor also displays it's note name.


In dense parts or score, being able to quickly read where a "bad" note is or how the part is laid out in Piano Roll mode would make life SOOOOOOO much better for those of us writing music daily.


Attached picture is low-res, but you get the idea.

Prevent Pro Tools from pausing/skipping.

Every time when I play my Pro Tools project and while playing I try to add an instrument track, or an audio track, or an effect, or a send or change the cycle Pro Tools will pause for a moment.

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 »

Drums mode for MIDI editor

Community Member kudos icon + Community member

I would love to have an option to switch MIDI editor to DRUM EDIT MODE where there would be diamond or triangle markers for note start without showing its length. Would be also nice to have a possibility to switch from classic piano roll to MIDI note number mode, to set names for notes, load and save note names to file and display custom layers (e.g. show only named notes or show notes defined by user).

Allow Color Choice for tracks in MIDI Editor

Presently, notes in the MIDI Editor are assigned by Pro Tools. This is inefficient and difficult to follow (if for instance you're doing a big orchestral session with a lot of different parts that you want to view/edit simultaneously). A better solution would be allow the choice of setting colors for the notes/tracks in the MIDI Editor to either be user-selected from a palette, or to follow the main Track Color.... more »
