Simples, commit to a specific track/s instead of PT creating new ones each the time.
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 »
In PT 12.5 and 12.4 the midi functionality is so buggy as to be unusable. There are multiple issues - stuck notes, crashes, etc.
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.
Be Aware.. I have a 7.1 Output in my I/O. When using a 5.1 Bus & mapping to the 7.1 Output you lose the Rear Surrounds. If you create a 5.1 Output & Map your 5.1 Bus to that it works fine. Sat with a Dolby Specialist & diagnosed this..There is a bug when mapping to the 5.1 bus of a 7.1 output.
You know those occasional moments when you hit shift+play and get half speed/octave lower playback.... and it sounds AMAZING!
Just had one of those moments.... I wish there was a way of capturing that as an audio file.
