Lock Fader for fine adjustments will save my left elbow from epicondylitis

When I am mixing and I have already adjusted the overall volume of an instrument, and start to automate, I usually do not move the fader beyond 0.3dB-0.5dB. I am all the time with the left hand pressing the command key to make these small movements in the fader, to the point that every so often I suffer from epicondylitis in the left arm derived from this problem. My TC6000 System has the ability to block a fader with ...more »

Meta tag field when naming tracks

I often do several songs in one session. Especially bands that come in to do 5 or 6 songs in one tracking session. So there's KICK, SNARE, HAT, BASS etc. So I will, at the start of a take of each new song, create a marker with the song title, I.E. JohnnyBGoode. I enter the name in the marker field, select Ctrl A for ALL to highlight all the text, CTRL C to copy the selected text, hit the numeric pad "enter" to create ...more »

Clip snapping to other clips and markers

Reaper has a fantastic editing function that allows clips to SNAP to other clip boundaries when dragging, as well as to markers. The more I edit in Reaper the more I miss this feature in Pro Tools and it is handy beyond words. Snapping can also be turned off of course but for post work, particularly when editing ambiences or anything that needs to be on frame boundaries its is incredibly useful. They have figured out ...more »

New Waveform Editing Workflow

We should look into upgrading the way in which we currently can edit a file by drawing in a waveform, ny ideas are: -When Zooming in to waveform level, have a vertical scale in dB at least to see when it clipped, or how far are we from clipping -Have an option to zoom and switch to pencil tool automatically -Also removing certain things from a sound can be super hard when you can't actually see whats going on on the ...more »

Playlists for Markers

How about playlists, found on the tracks, to be featured on markers.

 

I like to import different arrangement markers and currently, I have to save them to a new session with a reference track and import into my track when I write.

 

It would be really good to group, say, a reference track and a marker track and switch up different arrangements from markers. Pretty cool!,

Make Length Calculation while selection Clips with Grabber (in Object Mode) total duration of selected clips

Would be nice if when selecting multiple clips using with the Grabber in Object mode, if it the length calculation was the length of those selected clips instead of insertion length on the timeline. Good example of this is ... "Hmm.. i wonder what the duration of these 5 cues are?".. Grabber ... Object mode.. shift click each Cue Clip.. and voila! Currently, I either use a timecode calculator, spreadsheet or dupe ...more »

bus menu skips "&" symbol

In order to have very short track names i would like to use the "&" symbol as a ideally short name for my MIX-BUS (where all signals are "added"). Unfortunately pro tools does not show up this [&]-symbol inside the bus-menu which is confusing.

 

FYI: testet with ProTools Ultimate 2018.4 and latest macOS 10.13.4 HighSierra

Note: The alternative "Σ" [Sigma] symbol is used for my MASTER before Mixbus already.

NEW-TRACKS WINDOW: when adding new row -> preselect last used trackpreset-folder/preset. NEXT STEP: Add batch options.

PROBLEM: currently uncomfortable navigation per item is needed in order to add more rows with similar track presets in pt-2018.3-4 Q U I C K S O L U T I O N: PRESSING "+" on TrackPreset-menu should bring up a new row with the same TrackPreset-type preselected - just as in the row above.
