A trim knob that works like the plugin placed before the channel plugin path would be nice. This would help in facilitating proper gain staging of tracks that are recorded too hot or too soft without using up a plugin slot.
There is only one feature in HD I need as it stands, and it feels kind of insane to be paying $999USD in upgrade fees to keep that feature and be on Pro Tools 12. Surround - don't care, huge numbers of tracks and I/O - don't care... please just turn on Trim.
It would be very helpful to have a trim and pan right before the first plugin in the chain, so that we can make pan and trim the audio input source, before it starts being processed by the plugins and even before heat.
I'm constantly moving back and forth between the edit window and the MIDI edit window. I'm constantly changing tools (draw, trim, etc.) but when I switch between windows, it remembers the last tool I was using for that window not necessarily the last tool I selected. I think I'm using one tool, but I'm actually using another. Very frustrating. If I change a tool, please make it a global change.
