Virtual Console

I was wondering if this is possible in PT, or whether it's something not developed yet.. When I record a number of songs for a band, and every song has the same track instrument qualities/plugins/pans/plugin settings/sends, and you don't own a console, then you have to create a session for each song and build identical mixers for each session. You could create a template, but a template won't provide everything a console ...more »

Bank with attached trackpad or mouse

There is an input on the back of the S3 for a mouse but it doesn't integrate with the S3 in a useful fashion within ProTools. It would be amazing to be able to bank around on the S3 with an attached mouse scrollwheel or even better, imagine being able to use a trackpad (apple magic trackpad) and use swiping scroll gestures to bank. It would be like scooting your chair down the console!

Graphics support for iMac and other 4k and 5k screens

The reason why Pro Tools is lagging on a 4-5k display is because the native resolution of Pro Tools currently supports 1080p. The 4-5k display feature is yet to be added by Avid. The current workaround for this would be switching to 1080 display so Pro Tools wouldn't lag.

 

I am using iMac 17.1 (5k Retina) and it is almost impossible to work with Pro Tools unless I switch to 1080 screen.

 

4-5k graphics support please!

Beat Detective: more intelligent edit smoothing

Beat Detective: where adjacent clips end up further apart than they were (which is presumably half of all cases), there will be a knowable time window within which you cannot place the edit without creating a plop - it has to be far enough back from the second hit that you don't hear the start of that hit before the edit point. Beat Detective doesn't seem to know to avoid this window, so the plop often occurs before or ...more »

Disable Grabber Tool "Object" when time selection is present

When a time selection is present and the Grabber tool is accidentally still on "Object" and you click a region within the time selection, the time selection disapears and the sole clip is selected or moved or whatever. I NEVER need this and it kills my sometimes carefully alligned time selection. (Even worse: spot to cursor is executed when holding ctrl at the same time which was intended to lock sliding clips in time. ...more »

Pre fade Aux mutes to have option to follow channel mute.

Whenever live monitors are involved and pre-fade auxes are used to send to them, as a live mixer it is imperative that the channel mute also mute the pre-fade signals to monitors. There is needed a button, just like the FMP to follow main Pan we need FMM for follow main mute. In a live situation, when a mic is not being used, then the mixer wants that signal out of the monitors too. Take for example a reed player with ...more »

Groups sometimes stick in 12.8

In PT 12.8 on Win7, using keyboard shortcuts for soloing, muting, record enable, etc. sometimes will be applied to all members of a group immediately after the group has been disabled via keyboard shortcut. For example, create a group designated by letter a. With keyboard focus on GROUPS: 1. type "a" to enable the group 2. type "s" to solo the group 3. type "s" to unsolo the group 4. type "a" to disable the group 5. Select ...more »

Mute MIDI when freezing tracks

Currently (PT 12.8), when freezing instrument tracks, it will not mute the MIDI output of that track automatically. So, for example, if you're routing several instrument tracks to one instance of Kontakt, when you freeze the tracks, unless you mute the MIDI output of each one manually, they'll still play in the background and use up resources. The feature I'm requesting is to simply make it so whenever you freeze a ...more »

AAF missing files message in 12.8

I just upgraded from 12.7.1 to 12.8 and now when open an AAF file I get an error message that "xxx audio files are missing" If I dismiss it all the files reconnect and I am not missing anything, but everytime I open the projects I get the same error message. If I choose to automatically relink the files, it searches forever and never finds anything. I down graded to 12.7.1 on the same computer and all works as it should. ...more »

Bounce to quicktime with external word sync & input monitor results in errors

Pro Tools HD 12.7.0 Audio interface is Komplete Audio 6 . The interface is locked to External S/pdif input . Works fine totally solid. I have that same S/pdif input pair assigned to an AUX track that is routed directly to my Stereo monitor output. When I bounce to quicktime the resultant movie audio track has digital errors all the way through the program material making it un-usable. As per page 480 in the reference ...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 »

Remotely control preamp gain on Pro Tools Control

A very great feature would be to have the possibility to set the Avid PRE preamp gain directly from the Pro Tools Control. When you are using Avid Pre you can set up the gain directly in the mixer window. It's work with other products like Millenia, RME, etc... It's very helpful for musician who are recording alone like drummer by instance. You don't need to go back in front of your mixer window to change the gain value ...more »

Entering plugin gain parameters

Why is the so fiddly - and why is the " db" text a part of the value on occasion? No one is ever going to type it.. it should be a part of the graphics, not the text entry.

 

It also is pretty dumb in how it handles typing negative numbers sometimes - ... i.e.: -6 for -6db ... but there's no consistency - sometimes it doesn't work.. or inserts it AFTER the stupid db text.
