Simple as that. Currently Pro Tools is limited to 4 sets of 26 groups - 1 group for each letter of the alphabet, 4 times over - or 104 in total. For large post production sessions (especially when working with 'multiple mono' tracks), this really isn't enough. Would dearly love to see this limitation removed
When right-clicking a track name, these commands could be added to the context menu:
- "Add to group >" to assign one or more selected tracks to a group (eg. to join a newly-created track with an existing group);
- "Remove from groups >" to remove them from any group they belong to. Only currently assigned groups would be shown here.
It'd be great if we had a (completely optional) choice to modify the ALL group, flagging specific tracks it *shouldn't* control. If this option isn't enabled, the functionality of this group should remain completely as it is today - don't want to disrupt... more »
There is currently no way in PT to change group ID letters and the S3 lays out the groups alphabetically, by group ID. Unless you are extremely organized and diligent with your group management, you end up with a fairly unorganized looking group list when you spill them out on the OLEDs. In PT, I manage my groups by keeping... more »
It would be great to have an option to temporarily group tracks together to pan them without having to create a permanent group. This could be a combination of modifier keys with selected tracks or just a on option to turn on or off a Panning group of selected tracks.
Especially when performing cut time or add time commands. A simple checkbox would suffice.
When moving sections of a song around this is a workflow killer.
For example. If you decide to copy and past a chorus to double it or remove an instrumental section, you need to be able to have the playlists follow.... more »
For example. Let's say that you recorded a string section with spot mics on each instrument plus room mics and a deca tree. Then you did three passes to create a full orchestra sound.
Adds up quick!
. Being able to hide most of the members of the group would make for much cleaner editing. This could be a preference that could... more »
1. type "a" to enable the group
2. type "s" to solo the group
3. type "s" to unsolo the group
4. type "a" to disable the group

All 3 Eq's have the same low cut enable, the same low cut freq, the same ... ,
but when moving the , e.g., low cut freq in the mono track Eq, only that one moves, not the low cut freq of the Eq's of the stereo tracks.
And vice versa : moving a parameter in the stereo Eq does... more »
Add these options when right-clicking a track or a selection of multiple tracks:
- Add to Group > [show group list, highlighting groups already assigned to the track(s)];
- Remove from Group > [show groups currently assigned to this track] – this is greyed out if the track(s) hasn't been assigned to any group.
...instead of having have to pull up the "modify..." window just to change the name of a group.
You've already and succesfully blended 2 tracks together (e.g. Bass DI at 0dB + Bass MIC at -4dB)
everything seems to be perfect so you go further in your mix...
Then you want to change the balance between these 2 bass tracks, here appears the trap ! each time you increase a fader, you must decrease the other one in the same range, because each modification on a fader changes the global volume... more »
Just like selecting inputs and outputs, hovering over "Add to group" gives you a drop down list with all the groups. Click the group and bam, it's added.
Hover over over "Remove from group" gives you a list of all the groups the track is in. Click the group and bam, it's not in that group anymore.

There are few things that I want to group as much as a pan - having groups panned by the VCA would be awesome!! Before anyone suggests otherwise, I know what a traditional VCA is... and in addition to this, I want to pan before I reach an aux/bus - for instance if you want to creat an object with panning information in it that you then rotate / pan.
