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.

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.

add tag-option: "macOS 10.13" in Ideascale

High Sierra was presented June 5th and released September 25th 2017. Enough time to update ideascale with "macOS 10.13" tag - for the current (and avid-approved) operating system.

 

Especially with bug reports in mind I would like to communicate correct information to avid's engineers.

Naming Options when consolidating

The name of a consolidated cliip is derived from the track name, which many times makes a lot of sense. However, there are tasks when i would be happy when the names would be derived from the clip itself: e.g. when prepariing mixes for mastering or master in PT i need to add fade ins/out to my mix, RX-denoise the intro of the song, comp an outro of another mix .... all situations where i work with perfectly named files ...more »
