Restore to last selected track

Say that you're working on some tracks on the S3. You want to jump to your VCA layout or any other layout for that matter, make some quick adjustments for balance, maybe mute/solo a couple of things, It would be great to be able to hop back to where you were. As it stands, you have to go searching for the track that you were focused on again. This would be similar to 'restore last selection' in the edit window. Work ...more »

re-assign/alternate select button via eucontrol pref

It would be great to be able to re-assign the select button on the S3 via Eucontrol prefs. For those using the VCA spill workflow, this would be killer. I know that a lot of users find that having the select button in between the faders can be a bit tight. How about being able to assign it to a touch or press of the top or middle row knobs via a eucontrol preference. It could also work to use a keyboard modifier(s) in ...more »

nested VCA spill workflow improvements

When using a VCA within a VCA, it would be great if the behaviour followed the parent/child nesting model. For example. In my main drum VCA, I have sub VCA's for snare, kick, close mics, far mics etc. I add the sub VCA's to the main drum VCA so that when I spill the main drum VCA, I have my sub-groups all laid out. When I enter a sub group to edit, and then return (double clicking select on far right fader) it takes me ...more »

S3 Auto Talkback

It's great to have the talkback functionality on a Pro Tools S3. It would be even better, when it would be possible to mute talkback automatically when Pro Tools is recording and open it when in play or stopped.

S3 mute buttons malfunction when soloing channels

When soloing one or more channel, all other channel mute buttons lit up. This is not the appropriate behaviour. Their state should stay the same, just like in the edit- and mix windows. There is no reason why those mute buttons lit up, as it is already indicated that tracks are soloed, by their solo buttons being lit, as well as by the blinking clear solo button.

spill or group busses and I/Os when configuring sends or I/O

in a session with considerable amount of busses it's virtually impossible to assign busses on sends or I/O's in a reasonably convenient matter. This could be hugely improved by spilling them across the lcds, or first browsing 'subgroups' (e.g. bus 1-20, bus 21-22, ...) before browsing the actual busses. Or maybe a combination, just like when inserting plug-ins (which works very nicely)
