Pro Tools bugs

Shortcuts only work with US English keyboard input language

Pro Tools is the only software I have where the language input type disables many of the programs shortcuts on Windows.

Even though my input was set to "US English (international)" I had to change to "US English" in order for all shortcuts to work.

(My OS language is Dutch)

I think this could be fixed, as no other software I have used encountered this problem.

Fix Crash: Navigating Mac File Selection by Keyboard

When in standard, Mac-driven file selection dialog windows (e.g. Create New, Open, Import Audio, etc.) using keyboard-based navigation (e.g. Left Arrow, Right Arrow, Cmd+Up, Cmd+Down, etc.) too rapidly causes the entire app to freeze for several seconds, then crash completely, presenting the standard 'Send to Avid' option.

When using clip effects, my keyboard dies

When using clip effects, my keyboard dies. It works for about a minute then anything on the edit screen won't work.

Play, tab, shortcuts - all dead. I can save and access the top menu bar but nothing else.

It seems to only happen when you keep the clip effects window open.

When i toggle it open / closed, my keyboard will be fine.

As soon as I left the clip effect window open for a few minutes it froze again.

I've just moved from PT 10 to 12.

Bam! The tracks were gone, and it was great. I tried to delete a track in 12, and noticed this shortcut was gone, and ...more »

Keyboard As MIDI Controller

This is a MUST now that Pro Tools is more mobile. Ableton has it and Logic both have it. It is a necessity for easily auditioning Software Instruments or even laying down ideas on the go - ie on a laptop. Why this hasn't been implemented into Pro Tools yet is absolutely mind blowing. Solution: It is very simple. Just like there is a keyboard focus button which activates all the shortcuts there could be a "Midi Keyboard" ...more »
