Playing / Printing Virtual Instrument Performance To An Audio Track In Real-Time Through A Bus

Very often I want to capture a VI performance on an audio track while it is being performed. I would like to do this for a many reasons, the main ones being: 1 - I've run into multiple situations where there are aspects of the performance that aren't captured with MIDI. 2 - It saves CPU by having less VI instances. I'd like to be able to live-print the VI performance to an audio track by routing the instrument track's ...more »

Latency when recording through aux to audio track

Routing from: One aux track with input from microphone Routing to: One audio track with input from said aux track Why on earth does this routing incur latency? Even in a clean session with no plug-ins, there is a 15ms delay (128 samples H/W buffer size). The idea is to print plug-ins (e.g., Slate Virtual Microphones or low latency Auto Tune) and not have to instantiate 50+ copies across a vocal dub/backing session. ...more »

Renumbering Memory Locations Selections causes them to recall in Ruler only

Seems to be a Mac-only bug. When invoking a Selection-type memory location, the selection shows up and the audio is highlighted (on the track in focus), as expected. But if you renumber the memory location and recall it, the in and out spots are marked on the ruler, but the audio or MIDI only the current track is not selected. Steps to reproduce: 1. Open a session containing at least one audio or MIDI track 2. Make a ...more »

9172/3 etc

9172. I WANT to subscribe and pay the $1K per year but I'm frozen at 12.5. I WILL buy it when Pro Tools works without crashing or me having to reset buffer, toggle delay comp 10+ times a day. Have used Pro Tools since when Digidesign was a sample edit app (80s). Then onto Sound Designer/Tools etc. A friend who's having the 9173 issues bought 18 and says it's worse. I think if there are plugins that are causing this problem ...more »

RELINK WINDOW ADJUSTMENT

Ever since the relink window was introduced the size adjustment has been awkward. Always the first frame edge to be adjusted is the one below the "select area to search" because it never will show all the drives etc. needed for pointing to. Grabbing that lower frame edge results in its resize, BUT only to the edge of the next lower frame edge where it is forced to stop. So then that next lower one needs to be moved, before ...more »

TRIMMING FADE and UNDERLYING REGION

ProTools has always hung up on the existing region size when trimming a fade between two regions. It seems like an oversight. If the trimmer is being used, it seems logical that anything associated with the fade - including underlying region, should change length to match fade need. I have not encountered a situation where the underlying region limit needed to be upheld when changing fade size.

Retrospective MIDI doesn't show up in MIDI editor window

When working in the MIDI editor window, applied Retrospective MIDI notes don't show up at first. They play, but you can't see them until you refresh the the MIDI editor window by closing/reopening or zooming out and back in. Other than that, I'm loving that PT is finally starting to catch up to Logic and Cubase on this front. PT 2018.7 on Win7.

Trimmer Tool Bug

This is driving me mental. When working and editing on larger sessions - especially 5.1 - The Trim tool is operating incorrectly: So while in trim mode, and ie clicking and holding to adjust a clip boundary, if I 'let go' and move my mouse cursor to continue on with another task, the clip will NOT stay where I had 'let go' and instead moves with my mouse cursor! It's more apparent the more Protools has to think ...more »

VCA group assignments stay inactive when re-activating VCA and tracks

When re-.activating a group of tracks with their VCA masters very often the group assignments on the VCA masters stay inactive (italic and grey) and you have to manually activate them (ctrl-.command click on the via output thing). Sometimes it works but much more often the tracks themselves become active but not the VCA output so they don't actually do anything and the mix is messed up. Please fix. (happens in 2018.4, ...more »

Crash when ungrouping clip group and a fade is on the border of the group

When ungrouping a clip-group PT 2018.4 (also happens in 2018.1) will crash 100% of the time if there's a fade located right on the edge inside the group, As a workaround you have to trim the group and ungroup then but since there's no way for the user to know if there's a fade inside the group the crash will always happen.

Super annoying on large conforms.

alt-command-U brings up strip silence in 2018.4

without a selection or a selection over the empty time-line hitting alt-command-U (ungroup) brings up the strip silence window., Seems like a new bug, Doesn't happen in 2018.1. The command for strip silence is command-U not alt-command-U. The later is ungroup.

 

Please fix as this messes up workflow when conforming recuts.
