New Waveform Editing Workflow

We should look into upgrading the way in which we currently can edit a file by drawing in a waveform, ny ideas are: -When Zooming in to waveform level, have a vertical scale in dB at least to see when it clipped, or how far are we from clipping -Have an option to zoom and switch to pencil tool automatically -Also removing certain things from a sound can be super hard when you can't actually see whats going on on the ...more »

Playlists for Markers

How about playlists, found on the tracks, to be featured on markers.

 

I like to import different arrangement markers and currently, I have to save them to a new session with a reference track and import into my track when I write.

 

It would be really good to group, say, a reference track and a marker track and switch up different arrangements from markers. Pretty cool!,

Make Length Calculation while selection Clips with Grabber (in Object Mode) total duration of selected clips

Would be nice if when selecting multiple clips using with the Grabber in Object mode, if it the length calculation was the length of those selected clips instead of insertion length on the timeline. Good example of this is ... "Hmm.. i wonder what the duration of these 5 cues are?".. Grabber ... Object mode.. shift click each Cue Clip.. and voila! Currently, I either use a timecode calculator, spreadsheet or dupe ...more »

NEW-TRACKS WINDOW: when adding new row -> preselect last used trackpreset-folder/preset. NEXT STEP: Add batch options.

PROBLEM: currently uncomfortable navigation per item is needed in order to add more rows with similar track presets in pt-2018.3-4 Q U I C K S O L U T I O N: PRESSING "+" on TrackPreset-menu should bring up a new row with the same TrackPreset-type preselected - just as in the row above. In other words: Just copy the great behavior of adding a classic track: Another (same) track type appears below. COMMAND_[+] on ...more »

Naming Options when consolidating

The name of a consolidated cliip is derived from the track name, which many times makes a lot of sense. However, there are tasks when i would be happy when the names would be derived from the clip itself: e.g. when prepariing mixes for mastering or master in PT i need to add fade ins/out to my mix, RX-denoise the intro of the song, comp an outro of another mix .... all situations where i work with perfectly named files ...more »

Option to link markers to track

I do a lot of audiobook post-production work. In some cases, I receive a PT file with timeline markers wherever there are problems that need to be fixed. Typically I do this work in "shuffle" mode... boy, it sure would be useful to be able to link the markers to the track I'm editing, so that if I have to chop out 90 seconds of extraneous crap, the following markers move to the left along with the audio. I'm aware I can ...more »

Pencil Tool stringing mode

When drawing a harp or any gliss, being able to click on the pencil in the midi editor or note view in midi track window and drag the pencil diagonally up or downwards to add a string of diagonal notes. Even nicer would be to set a logical chord related note filter type glissando thing during the process that would select only notes that belong in the string. But even without that you could just manually delete the notes ...more »
