Fix EXS Import Bug in Structure Implemented

Structure does not work for EXS users. Most of our EXS instruments do not play when opened up without troublesome readjustment of envelope settings. They have the infamous EXS Attack Sustain Decay Release envelope bug which prevents rapid auditioning of my 50,000 sampler instruments to sort through. AIR knows very well of this major bug. I only use my 160GB EXS library, therefore, my top-of-the-line version of Structure... more »

Satellite Play / Stops at wrong location

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 »

Automation Clicks and Pops

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 »

Fix Incorrect Error Messages Implemented

As if constantly getting error messages isn't annoying enough it would be nice if they actually made sense.

For example, I get this message ALL the time -

"Out of memory during Elastic Audio processing. Please switch to render mode. (-9419)"

Many of us can assure you Avid that we are neither out of memory or even using Elastic Audio so what's the point of this message?

It tells me nothing about the actual problem... more »

Latch automation & multi-mono plugins Implemented

Why is it that MM plugins seems to be primed even after Write to all? This doesn't happen with their Multichannel counterparts. Further explanation follows...

instantiate a MM plugin
auto-enable all parameters
enable latch automation and the "Allow latch prime in stop" pref
select a preset for the plugin - I chose Factory default for all my tests
hit Write to all
The result is that Plugin will still show in bold... more »

Entire session is selected and goes into reverse color scheme intermittently when selecting a Clip Implemented

Since protools 8 i've had this intermittent bug that when you select a region sometimes an accidental mouse drag or other trigger occurs and the entire session is selected and goes into reverse color scheme. the only way to get out of this mode is to select another spot on the timeline. sometimes it takes a few tries to actually get it to stop behaving this way. sorry its not repeatable, its hard to know when its going... more »

Smart tool and Selector tool selection bug?

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 »

Files with 4-letter names following a hyphen get truncated

try it!
name a track something like:

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 »

C|24 with Pro Tools 9

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 »
