Adjust Send Levels Using An Integrated Slider

We adjust send levels in Pro Tools by mouse clicking on a bus, this loads a slim floating fader outside of the mix window. We then need to click and drag this floating fader to set the send volume level. Wouldn't it be great if we didn't need to open up the floating fader? Instead, we adjust the send level over the instance of the bus like a plug-in slider? This would save countless mouse clicks within a mix.

Muted Track Volume Levels Shown Greyed Out

What if all muted tracks/channels would show their volume levels in a dark grey (dull) colour?

Pro Tools bugs

Clip gain level jumps down when adjusting while zoomed in (E-key)

It is still impossible to make small incremental adjustments to the clip gain while in fullscreen and zoom mode (shortcut "E") without the level jumping down by 30 - 40 dB.

 

This happens because the mouse pointer is at the bottom of the screen, and as such, the only workaround is to make the edit window smaller. Let's hope for a fix by the end of 2018!

Ofiicial Monitor Controller for Pro Tools HD / Native

Current Monitor Controllers effect the signal too much.

 

Pro Tools HD / Native needs remote (wired) a Monitor Controller to set the output level of the Main Outs (1-2). This way you can place your noisey hardware in another room (noise room) and have the controller set the output level "without" any audio compromise.
