Option to Link Edit Tools between Edit Window and MIDI Window

I do a lot of editing where I'm jumping back and forth between the regular edit window and the MIDI window. I'm constantly undoing an edit because I forget that the tool I was using in one window is not the one I was using in another. Very frustrating. Please add a setting that would give us the option to Link those tools so when you make a tool change in one window, it changes it globally.

Add Track(s) to Group

The process for adding a track or tracks to a group or multiple groups is antiquated and extremely time consuming. There should be a way to highlight a track or multiple tracks, right click, then select a group or multiple groups to add them to. I have a large orchestral template with many groups. Sometimes I need to add a track to all of my groups and it takes me 10 minutes to click on each group, scroll to the new track, ...more »

"Plugin Missing - Search Plug-ins (Unused) Folder ?"

Pretty Simple - If you open a session that is missing a plugin, one of the options (besides visit Avid Marketplace) should be to search in the "Plug-Ins (Unused)" Folder. The reason is that now Plug-in devs are issuing upgrades with new unique names, rather than just updating the version. For instance, I have Clariphonic DSP, and Clariphonic DSP Mark II (newer version) in my Plugin folder. I will probably never ...more »

GROUPING TRACKS LIKE EVERY OTHER DAW... why make it hard?

I'm new to Pro Tools and I am currently building an orchestral template. I would like to group my tracks together such as pianos as one group or strings as another but the template could end up being very large so hence it would be nice to collapse these groups with a single action or button or shortcut but still have a single track of them. One track that has multiple tracks in it and subtracks in those. That way i could ...more »

Allow track type to be changed for empty tracks

Enable the channel width of an empty track to be changed (mono to stereo, etc.), and any empty track able to be changed to any other type (MIDI, Instrument, Aux, etc.). It should be doable in such a way that plugins don't change where possible. E.g., an Audio track with a set of plugins but no audio on it should be able to be turned into an Aux track with the same plugins and settings.

adopt "abandon changes" from Cloud Collaboration into Pro Tools

it would be great to have "Abandon Changes" in Pro Tools without Cloud Collaboration. This is great if you have done some changes on a track (plugin settings pan vol auto etc) and you want to get back to where you started from without the need to "Revert to Saved..." - and this works on a track basis, not only the whole session, So you can make changes on track one, then track 2,3,4,... and then you can abandon changes ...more »

Import tracks in inactive state

Please let us force imported track to come in as inactive tracks. In large film sessions when you add another 300 tracks to re-balance the reels it takes forever for HDX to do the DSP "optimisation" process. Would have to be able to import as inactive to avoid closing, reopening the source session deactivating there and then save and reopen the target session again and then import. Slows down a big mix a lot.

Direct DigiLink to DigiLink connections

32 channels from one system to another using just one cable. Would help to reduce system latencies. Seems logical now that DigiLink is an independent cost, that it should be undergoing independent development. This would seem to be the easiest extension of the protocol.

 

And if this were to be implemented, then maybe down the line we could get a multiport DigiLink switch...
