Full page of soft keys

Can we have a screen view that shows just a full page of soft keys?

 

To take the idea further, it might be nice to be able to fully customise them -e.g. size, colour, position on screen etc.

 

OR, at least make the current 12 soft keys larger. They are quite small and hence hard to use quickly and accurately.

Plug In Editing / Automating

Full iPad screen editing of any plugin. How it might work: * Click on plugin send with mouse within Pro Tools. * Instead of bringing up the selected plugin window within Pro Tools as it usually would, it simply highlights the send (perhaps red) and throws the plugin window directly onto your iPad screen, scaled to the iPads full size screen for real time touch editing. * Alongside/above the plugin graphics on the iPad, ...more »

Whichever screen mouse is hovering over, shortcuts automatically affect.

Users who have multiple screens set up and frequently go back and forth between the Edit and Midi editor will know the frustration of hovering over one window with the mouse, using a zoom (or other) shortcut, and having the previously selected window zoom in or out. I'd love to see a feature where the shortcuts (like zoom in/out) affect the screen that the mouse is currently hovering over without having to click somewhere ...more »

iPhone control app

Please add an control app for the iPhone. I can't understand why Avid only supports the iPad, like all of the third-party developer for those kind of apps do. Of course has the iPad the larger surface and can therefore provide access to more faders and buttons. But, some production tasks don't need that kind of accessibility, but need for a greater flexibility. Just 1 fader and a few automation buttons on one page. ...more »

Ofiicial Monitor Controller for Pro Tools HD / Native

Current Monitor Controllers effect the signal too much.

 

Pro Tools HD / Native needs remote (wired) a Monitor Controller to set the output level of the Main Outs (1-2). This way you can place your noisey hardware in another room (noise room) and have the controller set the output level "without" any audio compromise.

Locate by Marker

PT Control should include a view where you can look at and locate to (maybe even create) markers. There are soft keys for editing so why not have a better method of selecting regions, like from a marker to a marker. I do this all the time in the DAW, PT Control should as well, otherwise, it's editing soft keys are not useful to me.

Edit and mix window showing synchronous track view when toggling

Example: Big session holding many tracks. Working in the edit window let me say on track number 48 (numbers only to show how many tracks instead of saying Git1, Piano2 etc). The track shown at the top of the edit window is for example number 46. Now when switching to the mix window, it would be a fantastic feature having track number 46 (always the track at the top of the edit window) automatically on the far left ...more »

Search and Filter for Commands in EuControl

It takes a lot of time setting up SoftKeys. It would be nice if this time-consuming process could be made simpler and faster. For example, EuCon is very powerful and covers probably hundreds of features. Instead of having to know where a function is in the menu hierarchy, a find as you type would be great! This way, you don't have to search through all the menus, just type a word and the list filters by this word and ...more »

Drag&Drop + Copy&Paste of SoftKeys For Quick Rearrangement in EuControl

It takes a lot of time setting up SoftKeys. Especially because one can only edit them one at a time. When I want to adjust the layout of SoftKeys to fit my workflow better, I need to delete a SoftKey and in that place, set up a completely new key from scratch. But the key I'm looking for is there, just on another page. I cannot copy and paste it, which would save me a lot of time. I need to create it from scratch. Also, ...more »
