MS processing, Mono Maker and Parallel processing natively on all plug-in instances

Would it not be great if every plugin inserts offered a native, standard way to switch to parallel processing? Pressing a button on the top and mixing in the effect? On stereo channels, it would be great to press a button to switch to M/S instead of L/R, even if the plugin did not have M/S. And along with that, a High Pass to cut things from the side channel and redirect more energy to the center channel (and a stereo ...more »

Push Soft Knob to toggle parameter (= SEL Button)

Using Soft Knob to control plug-ins on Pro Tools I Control is great, but, switching parameters by pressing the SEL iPad button is a pain, because it's neither precise nor direct.

 

It would be great if pressing a Soft Knob would simply switch between parameters.

 

Futhermore the current behavior (parameter reset) can be achieve by Alt-touching the knob.

Embed Audiosuite parameter settings in to the processed clip for later recall

It would be handy to retrieve parameter settings from a clip that has been processed by an Audiosuite plugin If you wanted to go back to a processed clip at a later stage and couldn't remember how exactly you processed it you could right click on the clip and there would be an 'Audiosuite Memory' option. Another menu would open from this listing all Audiosuite plugins used on the clip then for each one 'copy processed ...more »

Duplicate origional clip to playlist when processing from Audiosuite

During a sound effects editing session where a lot of Audiosuite processing is used it would be useful if Pro Tools would automatically save a copy of the pre-processed clip to a playlist. I usually duplicate this down myself so if I come back to the clip and I no longer like the fx precessing then I have the original below in the playlist ready to retrieve. If I've used multiple processes it would be handy to have an ...more »

Fix 12.8+ Crash on Quit

I know it's not impacting everyone, but for me, going from 12.7.1 to 12.8.1 introduced a new crash which happens every time I try to quit the app: it just shows the generic 'Send to Avid' crash reporter. Apparently, the same happened for some others who tried 12.8.0 also. For me, it's completely tied to whether or not I have Guitar Rig 5.2.2 in my plugins folder or not, but there could well be other plugins related to ...more »

Signal Generator Plugin Presets Broken in Multi-Mono Mode

I tried this on multiple systems spanning multiple versions of Pro Tools. I don't know if it has ever worked properly. If I make a present of tones with all the channels unlinked, changing the preset doesn't recall all the settings for all the channels, only the currently selected channel. For example if I have a multi-mono signal generator on a 5.1 track. I unlink the channels and change the level of the tone so each ...more »

Copy Stereo plugin to Mono Track

Currently you can copy a mono plugin to a stereo track, but you can't copy a stereo plugin to a mono track. I understand the reason why, but frankly it doesn't make much sense. If the setting are the same between the channels, just apply those settings to the new mono plugin, it's not that hard. If the channels are different....then a popup window appears asking which channel you want to take settings from. Example ...more »

"Send to Audiosuite" button on AAX plugins

Have a button on the actual real time plugin that you're using that renders a highlighted region with Audiosuite.

 

This way you don't have to copy settings, open Audiosuite, paste settings and render.

 

Yes, I realize there is track freeze, but sometimes it's best to audition something through a real time plugin and then just render that one region, not the whole track.
