Elgato Stream Deck Pro Tools Feature Request

The Elgato Stream Deck is not a "qualified" third party device to work with Pro Tools. It works completely fine in Pro Tools on MAC OS, but does not work correctly within Windows when assigning a button to a hot key using the 'alt' modifier key. Dear Avid support, Setup 1: If you are not familiar with the Elgato Stream Deck, it is a fully customizable LCD screen with buttons to trigger basically anything you please ...more »

Bring back the SD2 to Wav feature

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 »

Pro Tools bugs

Intermittent pausing in operation

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 »

Mute MIDI when freezing tracks

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 »

Collaboration tools do not work.

(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 »

Pro Tools bugs

Collaboration tools show blank window, no error message

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 »

Pro tools 12 Channel Preset

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 »

Retrieve tags from CAF Audio Loops files

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!

Bring back Full Screen mode! (removed since 12.6.1)

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 »
