Smart Session Cleanup Function

I would like to have a smart, half-automated way for cleaning up sessions after a mix is done.

The function should allow me to remove unused playlists, consolidate all audio files, delete unused audio regions and put everything in a new folder that contains only the audio needed for the session.

Plugin Manager With Version Indicator

A build-in plugin manager that would allow you to turn plugins on or off AND clearly specifies the correct versions of the installed plugins. After restarting Pro Tools your plugins would then be turned on or off according to the settings you made in the plugin manager. It would be fantastic if it could be done WITHOUT a restart of Pro Tools, BUT even if i do have to restart Pro Tools this would make such a difference ...more »

Session Documentation

I could really use an in-session documentation feature. I always include a RTF file with a log of my hours that I worked and what I did. It would be nice if PT had a feature that would log my hours and allowed me to comment on this log and then print or export it. This would be a simple feature to program and would make documentation much easier to keep on top of.

Hi guys, love the software. Would really help if we could name the tracks when we set them up.

If there are multiple tracks to create, give us the option to name ALL new tracks at the create stage, or bypass the naming at this stage. This way when ...more »

Enhanced "Comments"

1. An expandable panel in the mixer would be really helpful.

 

2. A bigger comments that sits like the regions bin. A lot of us write songs in Pro Tools and have to use a text editor to do so. With this addition we could write lyrics as we produce which would be awesome.

Keyboard Shortcut for Matching Field Recorder Channels

It would be very efficient and useful to have a keyboard shortcut for flipping through matching field recorder channels. This would help post production folks quickly toggle to the next mic/channel from a field recorder. Sometimes there are 10 matching field recorder channels and right clicking the region each time gets really time consuming so having a keyboard shortcut for this would speed things up tremendously.
