Bring back Full Screen mode! (removed since 12.6.1)

just installed 12.6.1 on MacOS El Capitan 10.11.6, upgraded from 12.5.2. Full Screen mode no longer works. I click the green button, and it just (vaguely) Maximizes the window, instead of entering Full Screen.

This makes Pro Tools break the standard of MacOS since at least Mountain Lion, and is a severe hindrance to usability on small screens like a laptop. The standard for MacOS is that clicking the green button enters... more »

Presets for 'import session data' elements

I do a lot of session data import when I switch to a new mix using that terrible pull-down menu to select different options, which is cumbersome.

I'd like to set presets for elements I often use, (similar to window configuration) and be able to pull that up instantly.

Audio Wild Record / Audio Clip Selection "Clip Source Window"

The Ability to record in the "Clip Source Window" a wild mono or stereo track, where the clip ends up in the Clip menu or a specified folder i.e Wild VO Records, saves a lot of time and maintains a clean timeline, rather than having to navigate through unneeded extra

tracks and clips on the timeline which is very time consuming. please see attachment.

Bring back the SD2 to Wav feature

One of the key qualities of Pro Tools was always its solid professionalism with regards to past sessions. Where you'd need three+ plus different versions of, say, Logic to open an older session in a current version, Pro Tools would just give you a couple of pop-up options, make a WAV copy of the SD2 files and you'd be back in business.
Unfortunately this wonderful feature ended with PT 10/11. I have a large archive of... more »

The Monitor / Control Room Knob in the Artist Control has no functionality whatsoever in Pro Tools at the moment. Please make this available or just assignable so it could control a Master Fader.

Mixer Playlist Feature

My suggestion is that the Pro Tools Mixer has Playlists. So for example:

1. You could duplicate a mix, try different things, go off at a tangent etc.
2. Create a new mix. "Zero" the mixer and start again with the option of going back to the original.
3. Move tracks between mixes. For example, duplicate a mix and get a better drum sound, then copy those tracks into the original mix that was otherwise fine.
4. Splice sections... more »

Pro tools 12 Channel Preset

This feature would give you the ability to save your favorite track presets so that you can recall them later. If you didn't take the picture, I will explain a little better. Imagine if you have that perfect sound in one piano once. You can store that preset including the VI Instrument if the case, and you can recall it later. this feature would open an ocean of possibilities like save, presets for voices, busses, VI's,... more »

Full support for MXF OP1a files

Pro Tools has support for MXF. Unfortunately, there are tons of different flavors of MXF around... As a broadcaster, we use OP1a files, containing video and 16 tracks of audio.
Pro Tools only imports the Video from these files. (Kind of odd for DAW software, no?)

Pro Tools currently only imports audio from MXF OPAtom files, which have separate files for audio and video.

Since our complete workflow - from ingest to playout... more »

PT 12.6.0 bug: Fix CMD-click fine tuning of trim automation

As per title. CMD-clicking a trim automation node in PT 12.6.0 does not give 0.1 dB fine tuning of the automation, instead it snaps the node to the grid, even in slip mode. CMD-clicking regular volume automation still works as expected. (The current workaround is using the "extreme" track height temporarily)

Buffer Setting adjustment on PC within Pro Tools 12

Community Member kudos icon + Community member
I rely heavily on the ability to freely adjust buffer settings within an open working session; I need lower buffer settings to record new tracks, and often much higher buffers to mix/master. My workflow involves mixing as I go along, and Pro Tools on a Mac (with the UAD Apollo) allowed me to do this for years. Pro Tools 12.4 on a PC running Windows 7 Pro 64-bit requires a complete quitting of Pro Tools (not even just... more »

Collaboration tools show blank window, no error message

64-bit Windows 7 Ultimate, Intel core i7-6700K CPU 4.00 GHz, 16 GB RAM, running ProTools 12.5.2

In collaboration tools, both the invite another user and artist chat buttons create a blank popup window that never populates (waited up to 20 minutes). No error message. I can close the window and carry on editing. None of the buttons in the track collaboration function appear to do anything at all, whether in the universal... more »

Mute MIDI when freezing tracks

Currently (PT 12.8), when freezing instrument tracks, it will not mute the MIDI output of that track automatically.

So, for example, if you're routing several instrument tracks to one instance of Kontakt, when you freeze the tracks, unless you mute the MIDI output of each one manually, they'll still play in the background and use up resources.

The feature I'm requesting is to simply make it so whenever you freeze a... more »

Consolidate from source media still copies the entire file

Community Member kudos icon + Community member
When I import session data, "Consolidate from source media" still copies the entire file to the new session's audio files folder.

From the manual (pg. 336 in the 12.4 reference guide):
"Consolidate from Source Media
Use this setting to copy the audio from the source project to the Pro Tools session, while removing all unused areas in the copies. For example, you might only be using ten seconds of a ten-minute audio file... more »
