Add/remove selected tracks from group

When right-clicking a track name, these commands could be added to the context menu:

- "Add to group >" to assign one or more selected tracks to a group (eg. to join a newly-created track with an existing group);

- "Remove from groups >" to remove them from any group they belong to. Only currently assigned groups would be shown here.

Option to Exclude Tracks from ALL Group

Obviously, the ALL group is helpful, but there are some tracks (e.g. Reverb Aux, Mix-Level Aux, Instrument-Grouping Auxes, etc.) which I want to always keep at 0 dB. It'd be great if we had a (completely optional) choice to modify the ALL group, flagging specific tracks it *shouldn't* control. If this option isn't enabled, the functionality of this group should remain completely as it is today - don't want to disrupt ...more »

Eucon preference to display MIX only or EDIT only groups in Channel View spill.

it would be helpful to have a eucon preference to display mix only or edit only for group assign. There is currently no way in PT to change group ID letters and the S3 lays out the groups alphabetically, by group ID. Unless you are extremely organized and diligent with your group management, you end up with a fairly unorganized looking group list when you spill them out on the OLEDs. In PT, I manage my groups by keeping ...more »

Mirrored Playlist Editing

It would be efficient to have a way to choose mirrored playlist editing in the same fashion as mirrored Midi editing. Especially when performing cut time or add time commands. A simple checkbox would suffice. When moving sections of a song around this is a workflow killer. For example. If you decide to copy and past a chorus to double it or remove an instrumental section, you need to be able to have the playlists follow. ...more »

Hidden group members follow edits

It would be great if you could hide members of a group but still have them follow group edits. For example. Let's say that you recorded a string section with spot mics on each instrument plus room mics and a deca tree. Then you did three passes to create a full orchestra sound. Adds up quick! . Being able to hide most of the members of the group would make for much cleaner editing. This could be a preference that could ...more »

Groups sometimes stick in 12.8

In PT 12.8 on Win7, using keyboard shortcuts for soloing, muting, record enable, etc. sometimes will be applied to all members of a group immediately after the group has been disabled via keyboard shortcut. For example, create a group designated by letter a. With keyboard focus on GROUPS: 1. type "a" to enable the group 2. type "s" to solo the group 3. type "s" to unsolo the group 4. type "a" to disable the group 5. Select ...more »

Mix Groups containing Tracks of different Channel Count but with the same Inserts : allow linking Parameters

Example : a mix group containing 1 mono and 2 stereo audio tracks, all 3 with an Eq37 on insert "a", mix attributes set to insert control/bypass. All 3 Eq's have the same low cut enable, the same low cut freq, the same ... , but when moving the , e.g., low cut freq in the mono track Eq, only that one moves, not the low cut freq of the Eq's of the stereo tracks. And vice versa : moving a parameter in the stereo Eq does ...more »

Tracks blending volume compensation

Let's paint the scenario : You've already and succesfully blended 2 tracks together (e.g. Bass DI at 0dB + Bass MIC at -4dB) everything seems to be perfect so you go further in your mix... Then you want to change the balance between these 2 bass tracks, here appears the trap ! each time you increase a fader, you must decrease the other one in the same range, because each modification on a fader changes the global volume ...more »
