Fix Application Manager Draining System Resources

>100 Threads >250 MB RAM 30-40% CPU usage on a 2.6GHz i7 That's a pretty typical usage I'm seeing from a combination of the 'AvidApplicationManager' and 'AvidAppManHelper' processes on macOS 10.12.4, which by default are always running! Furthermore, the app manager is also causing huge slowdown on system startup, sometimes immobilizing it for up to 10 minutes. These are way more resources than any update manager should ...more »

Update ProTools for Windows design of Mixer and Edit Windows to regular Windows10 style

ProTools on a mac looks great, but the Windows design is way behind. The Edit and Mixer windows for example (and any other open screen): they still have Windows 7 design... ButI think the Windows users deserve a bit more than that...

 

Why not adapt the minimize/ close buttons to the same design as all windows programs use under W10.

Avid midi (eucon?) keyboard controller

Please Avid,

All midi keyboards seem to break with the midi structure in Protools.. Automap, Hypercontrol... they all do not work proper (anymore) with Protools 12.6.

 

I think it's time to create, or choose a good midi controller maker to release a Protools dedicated midi controller / keyboard! A lot of folks compose in Protools and they need keys and rotary knobs to play the Virtual Instruments!

Make narrow mix view prettier

I can't be alone here - narrow mix view really looks like hell.

 

One thing causing this is the faders to stay the same size with a massive grey vertical line. This is pretty over the top. If the fader was made to blend more with the track this view mode wouldn't look so horrible
