Instrument name truncation prioritizes node count

Weird heading, I know. When you have multiple instrument tracks with the same instrument plug-in type, I.E., four Xpand!2 instances, they become titled as (Midi node#xxx): Expand!2 1-2, Expand!2 1-2, Expand!2 1-3, Expand!2 1-4, etc. The insert will truncate the name to fit in the insert name field to Expand!2 but it is not clear which is assigned to that channel as it does not read it out. Instead, something more ...more »

Keep incomplete (real-time) bounces that ended with an error

When a real-time Bounce to Disk ends prematurely because of any error (90% of the cases are CPU spikes that stop it in random points), don't delete it, letting the user running another bounce from the point it stopped! Realtime bounces are still needed when passing through analog hardware. I'm using Pro Tools since 2004, and since then I had the problem of bounces stopping randomly; so I find myself running smaller, ...more »
