For users who use Satellite there was a new bug introduced for Protools 8.1 on a Snow Leopard system using OSX on both system when you press stop the video goes back to the first frame that was played back. This confusing producers because they thing you scrolled back to the original starting point when in fact it is the satellite video that's randomly going back in time to a place that you aren't at in your edit window.... more »
There is a serious problem that can and does occur with pro tools automation. It seems to happen more with the volume bar graph. You can make an automation point and it can cause a very noticeable "POP" and or "Click" during playback. You can hear the POP and assume its an analogue noise coming from your vocal chain. After zooming, scrubbing and looking for the offender (which is normally found very easily when zooming... more »
I'm clicking in the top half of a region with the Smart Tool (so the i beam appears) to place the cursor. Sometimes when I'm doing this everything in the Edit window gets selected. It's like I've hit select all. If I switch to the Selector tool it still happens. Then, wherever I click in the session with the Selector tool or upper half of a playlist with the Smart Tool, everything remains selected rather than simply... more »
try it! name a track something like: Donna-Boom the files recorded on to this track will end up being labeled "Donna_01" as opposed to what you expect "Donna-Boom_01" I record a lot of ADR and the extension "-Boom" is pretty important to distinguish between this channel and the "-Lav" channel, being simultaneously recorded. My work-around solution is to just name the tracks "Donna-Bom" and "Donna-Lav" -- so my clients... more »
On the C|24 in Pro Tools 9.0.0 or 9.0.1, when assigning inputs or outputs to a BUS (rather than an INTERFACE input/output), the C|24 displays and requires you to scroll through the buses mapped to interfaces before showing the internal buses. When selecting a bus input or output, it should only show internal buses. Essentially, the C|24 doesn't "read" the I/O Setup correctly. It should read it like the Pro Tools software... more »
The following bug is found in Pro Tools M-Powered 8.0.4cs2: 1. Take any track with playlists. 2. Listen to the main playlist. 3. Listen to alternate playlist by enabling the solo button for the alternate playlist. 4. Save the session. 5. Close the session. 6. Open the session. 7. The solo button for the alternate playlist is still enabled, but the main playlist is playing. 8. Toggle the solo button for the alternate... more »
When you are in volume view of a track and you have the trim tool selected, trimming the volume of a region without first double clicking the region will result in only the unfaded part of the region's volume being trimmed, which is stupid. Never in nearly twenty years of mixing in ProTools have I wanted to adjust the overall volume of a region but not have the fade in and out affected.
Found on Pro Tools M-Powered 8.0.4cs2:
1. Make a track inactive - everything is greyed out.
2. Save and load session.
3. Pan buttons not greyed out on inactive tracks - and they are movable.
When object-grabbing a massive amount of edits to move them to a new set of tracks (for example, an entire reel of sound effects edits), volume automation and fades are lost/damaged in that random fades disappear, and random sections of automation are stair-stepped at unity gain. It occurs even when Shift-selecting over the selection multiple times to ensure everything is grabbed. The problem exists on Mac and PC, on... more »
This might seem esoteric, but it's a huge oversight for post work: When I import tracks from a session that does NOT start at hour 1 (let's say from Reel 2/hour 2) into a session that DOES start at hour 1... The new tracks are placed at the correct spot in the timeline, with all associated mix automation data EXCEPT the send automation! Any send automation is separated from the regions and placed out of sync at the beginning... more »
When selecting multiple stereo tracks, and using an AudioSuite plugin set to "create individual files", each Stereo-pair (e.g. the L and R channel of one stereo track) are not processed together as one. This causes any crucial time-based processes, such as flanging, phasing, etc to be offset between the L and R channels, whereas under "Create continuous file" both channels would be processed in phase coherence. I have... more »
Not sure if this a 9.02 side effect but all of a sudden pressing the "Browser" button temporally freezes PT.
There's a 15 second delay when adding a sound from Workspace to the track bin, it's ridiculous.
When using import session data, the chord map will always be imported from the source session regardless of whether you have that checkbox enabled or not.
This bug has been present since the introduction of the chord map in 8.0 and is still present in 9.0.5.
I'm getting very sick of having to restore chord maps from backups!
If you have a video track in your template it automatically asks you to import video and if you don't it deletes the track. The template should be able to maintain a blank track so that we can keep it in the track position we want and have it just sit there until we are ready to import to it.
