One of the key qualities of Pro Tools was always its solid professionalism with regards to past sessions. Where you'd need three+ plus different versions of, say, Logic to open an older session in a current version, Pro Tools would just give you a couple of pop-up options, make a WAV copy of the SD2 files and you'd be back in business. Unfortunately this wonderful feature ended with PT 10/11. I have a large archive of ...more »
In ProTools 12.8.2 (perpetual), everything was running fine. Suddenly, I had issues with intermittent pausing during session playback, plug-ins freezing then loading, meters freezing in place. However, ProTools didn't crash - just odd pausing 2 to 3 times every other minute on multiple functions as mentioned. Could a large buffer setting cause this issue (1024)? Not really sure what could be causing this. I'm running ...more »
Currently (PT 12.8), when freezing instrument tracks, it will not mute the MIDI output of that track automatically. So, for example, if you're routing several instrument tracks to one instance of Kontakt, when you freeze the tracks, unless you mute the MIDI output of each one manually, they'll still play in the background and use up resources. The feature I'm requesting is to simply make it so whenever you freeze a ...more »
(This is a bug report which I prevoiusly posted in S3 bugs by mistake. Since posting this I've also tried relocating ProTools to the desktop and disabling my firewalls based on comments in other forums, to no effect) 64-bit Windows 7 Ultimate, Intel core i7-6700K CPU 4.00 GHz, 16 GB RAM, running ProTools 12.5.2 In collaboration tools, both the "invite another user" and "artist chat" buttons create a blank popup window ...more »
64-bit Windows 7 Ultimate, Intel core i7-6700K CPU 4.00 GHz, 16 GB RAM, running ProTools 12.5.2 In collaboration tools, both the invite another user and artist chat buttons create a blank popup window that never populates (waited up to 20 minutes). No error message. I can close the window and carry on editing. None of the buttons in the track collaboration function appear to do anything at all, whether in the universal ...more »
This feature would give you the ability to save your favorite track presets so that you can recall them later. If you didn't take the picture, I will explain a little better. Imagine if you have that perfect sound in one piano once. You can store that preset including the VI Instrument if the case, and you can recall it later. this feature would open an ocean of possibilities like save, presets for voices, busses, VI's, ...more »
With the introduction of SoundBase with ProTools 12.7, I've noticed that if you don't like to download the provided free soundbank and want to use existing Apple Loops library installed with Logic, it doesn't retrieve the tags from those CAF files, but it can play them without problems.
I think it would be very very productiive having this feature!
just installed 12.6.1 on MacOS El Capitan 10.11.6, upgraded from 12.5.2. Full Screen mode no longer works. I click the green button, and it just (vaguely) Maximizes the window, instead of entering Full Screen. This makes Pro Tools break the standard of MacOS since at least Mountain Lion, and is a severe hindrance to usability on small screens like a laptop. The standard for MacOS is that clicking the green button enters ...more »
As per title. CMD-clicking a trim automation node in PT 12.6.0 does not give 0.1 dB fine tuning of the automation, instead it snaps the node to the grid, even in slip mode. CMD-clicking regular volume automation still works as expected. (The current workaround is using the "extreme" track height temporarily)
My suggestion is that the Pro Tools Mixer has Playlists. So for example: 1. You could duplicate a mix, try different things, go off at a tangent etc. 2. Create a new mix. "Zero" the mixer and start again with the option of going back to the original. 3. Move tracks between mixes. For example, duplicate a mix and get a better drum sound, then copy those tracks into the original mix that was otherwise fine. 4. Splice sections ...more »
I wanted to Randomize a number of notes all with the same velocity in the MIDI Editor. So... I enabled Scale By set to 100% then changed the Randomize amount. Instead of simply randomizing the notes, Pro Tools is creating duplicates. The higher the Randomize parameter is set, greater numbers of duplicate notes are created. This is with 12.5.2 HD.
