Bring back the SD2 to Wav feature

One of the key qualities of Pro Tools was always its solid professionalism with regards to past sessions. Where you'd need three+ plus different versions of, say, Logic to open an older session in a current version, Pro Tools would just give you a couple of pop-up options, make a WAV copy of the SD2 files and you'd be back in business. Unfortunately this wonderful feature ended with PT 10/11. I have a large archive of ...more »

MS processing, Mono Maker and Parallel processing natively on all plug-in instances

Would it not be great if every plugin inserts offered a native, standard way to switch to parallel processing? Pressing a button on the top and mixing in the effect? On stereo channels, it would be great to press a button to switch to M/S instead of L/R, even if the plugin did not have M/S.

In ProTools a preference setting for a house standard for bouncing audio

Most engineers bounce audio at there "house" standard like 24bit 48Khz etc. I would like a preference set in the preferences section that would always set the bounce profile to my house standard. If I create a session and then bounce out the audio I would like it to conform to the perimeters that I set in my Preference/bounce setting. I could always override the setting but it would be nice if the bounce settings didn't ...more »
