9172/3 etc

9172. I WANT to subscribe and pay the $1K per year but I'm frozen at 12.5. I WILL buy it when Pro Tools works without crashing or me having to reset buffer, toggle delay comp 10+ times a day. Have used Pro Tools since when Digidesign was a sample edit app (80s). Then onto Sound Designer/Tools etc. A friend who's having the 9173 issues bought 18 and says it's worse. I think if there are plugins that are causing this problem ...more »

RELINK WINDOW ADJUSTMENT

Ever since the relink window was introduced the size adjustment has been awkward. Always the first frame edge to be adjusted is the one below the "select area to search" because it never will show all the drives etc. needed for pointing to. Grabbing that lower frame edge results in its resize, BUT only to the edge of the next lower frame edge where it is forced to stop. So then that next lower one needs to be moved, before ...more »

TRIMMING FADE and UNDERLYING REGION

ProTools has always hung up on the existing region size when trimming a fade between two regions. It seems like an oversight. If the trimmer is being used, it seems logical that anything associated with the fade - including underlying region, should change length to match fade need. I have not encountered a situation where the underlying region limit needed to be upheld when changing fade size.

Retrospective MIDI doesn't show up in MIDI editor window

When working in the MIDI editor window, applied Retrospective MIDI notes don't show up at first. They play, but you can't see them until you refresh the the MIDI editor window by closing/reopening or zooming out and back in. Other than that, I'm loving that PT is finally starting to catch up to Logic and Cubase on this front. PT 2018.7 on Win7.

Trimmer Tool Bug

This is driving me mental. When working and editing on larger sessions - especially 5.1 - The Trim tool is operating incorrectly: So while in trim mode, and ie clicking and holding to adjust a clip boundary, if I 'let go' and move my mouse cursor to continue on with another task, the clip will NOT stay where I had 'let go' and instead moves with my mouse cursor! It's more apparent the more Protools has to think ...more »

VCA group assignments stay inactive when re-activating VCA and tracks

When re-.activating a group of tracks with their VCA masters very often the group assignments on the VCA masters stay inactive (italic and grey) and you have to manually activate them (ctrl-.command click on the via output thing). Sometimes it works but much more often the tracks themselves become active but not the VCA output so they don't actually do anything and the mix is messed up. Please fix. (happens in 2018.4, ...more »

Crash when ungrouping clip group and a fade is on the border of the group

When ungrouping a clip-group PT 2018.4 (also happens in 2018.1) will crash 100% of the time if there's a fade located right on the edge inside the group, As a workaround you have to trim the group and ungroup then but since there's no way for the user to know if there's a fade inside the group the crash will always happen.

Super annoying on large conforms.

Cut Time on locked clip crashes Pro Tools 2018.4

Using the Cut Time function on a locked clip will cause Pro Tools to crash on macOS. I've tested this with PT2018.4 on both macOS 10.12 and on 10.13 with the same result.

 

STEPS TO REPRODUCE:

1. Create a new audio track.

2. Create a new clip through consolidate.

3. Apply Edit Lock on the clip.

4. Make a Timeline Selection within the clip.

5. Use Cut Time.

6. Click Allow to confirm.

Proper interface scaling in Windows (high DPI support)

Pro Tools doesn't scale correctly in Windows. For this reason, its interface is rendered very poorly on high DPI screens. Even experimenting with Windows' high DPI settings, there are several glitchy configurations and only one configuration that makes the interface usable. I provide two screenshots which explain the problems experienced with 200% scaling on a 4K display. They show Pro Tools 2018.4 (current version ...more »
