Pro Tools bugs

Drag from Browser always fails with Unknown Error

Every time I drag an audio file from Pro Tools browser window into session edit window, the clip fails to copy with "Unknown Error".

 

I am using Pro Tools 18.4.0.317 on macOS 10.13.4. I have the setting enabled to copy audio files on import. If I close the session and open it again, the files are successfully copied. But this is very annoying to have to do every time I want to hear the audio file in the session.

bus menu skips "&" symbol

In order to have very short track names i would like to use the "&" symbol as a ideally short name for my MIX-BUS (where all signals are "added"). Unfortunately pro tools does not show up this [&]-symbol inside the bus-menu which is confusing.

 

FYI: testet with ProTools Ultimate 2018.4 and latest macOS 10.13.4 HighSierra

Note: The alternative "Σ" [Sigma] symbol is used for my MASTER before Mixbus already.

Adjusting crossfade limitation

As shown in the video.

I don't know if this is supposed te be a 'feature' but is has been around since version 9 at least.

Pro Tools behaves as if a clip has no handle length but it has plenty.

This is very annoying as I need to adjust the other side and then move the fade to the correct position.

HiDPi Display Support for Windows 10

Windows 10 display scaling makes Pro Tools fuzzy on HiDPI Screens and using native resolution on UHD Screens makes Pro Tools too small. Other DAW's can display correctly.

 

Pro Tools looks beautiful in macOS on HiDPi Retina Displays however, in Windows it looks awful.

 

An option for HiDPI Mode in Preferences would be greatly appreciated.

Fix Atmos bed (7.1.2) DSP mixer bugs on bus paths, PT 2018.3

I've just started my first score mix for an Atmos feature film, working in Atmos Bed 7.1.2 format, in PT 2018.3 (I assume it was the same for previous versions, though have not checked). I'm running a single HDX card. The issue: .7.0.2 and .Overhead subpaths don't work correctly on internal busses (but they do work on output busses). See the video: https://www.dropbox.com/s/2w4kj30bvpumg05/20180319_234911.mp4?dl=0 ...more »

Pro Tools bugs

Pro Tools stops responding when stopping and playing back

From time to time, Pro Tools hangs and stops responding when the transport is stopped and put in playback straight after. Unfortunately I don't know how to reproduce this bug; it happens quite randomly, irregularly and it's not frequent (from once every two days to once-twice a day). Apparently, it happens only when hitting stop and play quickly. I'm experiencing it since quite a long time ago, on Pro Tools 12.8, 2018.1 ...more »

Can't raise the roof no more...

Ok, that one might need a bit of explanation... When in an Automation Lane in the Edit Window, grabbing a line between two nodes works as expected. You move that (flat) line up or down. But we used to be able to grab the line between two nodes with the key modifiers option-shift, and conveniently, the Automation would ramp up and/or down from the previous or next adjacent nodes, creating something like a roof with the ...more »

Audio file rename text navigation stops on underscores

My work involves renaming audio files with specific placement of dashes and underscores, and depends on standard Mac text navigation using "Option" and the right/left arrows. The convention is navigation SKIPS underscores, but STOPS on dashes. ProTools 12.8 STOPS on underscores AND dashes.... ProTools 12.5 skips over underscores as expected. Text functions on other Mac Sierra software (mail, text editors) follow ...more »

Switching to rendered elastic audio crashes pro tools.

Switching to rendered elastic audio, both switching from real-time to elastic tested in Rhythmic and switching to x-form causes Pro Tools to stop responding. Some of them have worked, and I haven't figured out the difference between the tracks (have about 10 drum tracks) and some work fine, or one works and then the next one will crash. I've tried disabling all the plugins and it does not help so I don't think it's a ...more »

Fader are modified in groups even when only MIX GROUPS are active

I think I found a very hard to find bug in ProTools. I usually group my boom track and radio tracks to have the possibility of Mute/solo them separately.

For that purpose I do a MIX (not EDIT) group selecting only Mute and Solo attributes.

What happens is that while I'm editing and groups are enabled, when I modify a fade of a clip also the other in the group are modified.
