Some of the most popular feature requests on here were originally posted in 2009. Things like track folders, which are available in virtually every other DAW, but even more needed in Pro Tools, where film mixers have several hundred tracks to grapple with. That's a lot of scrolling. Instead of focusing on things like Atmos integration, which affects a tiny fraction of your users, please implement the features your larger... more »
In my standard session format, I like to have, for example, each kit piece at a 'Mini' size, so it's easier to navigate. Trouble is, whenever I import that to a different session, it makes them all whatever size is being used most recently there, meaning I have to resize all 12 tracks every time!
Would be great if the session data import screen had a checkbox option to retain origin track height.
Most of the time, when I change the grid size, I also ideally want the nudge values to match that new grid. I don't want to take away the option for them to be different, but it'd be great to have a little 'Link' icon I could toggle, whereby if I change the Grid to, say, 8ths, Nudge automatically changes to 8ths too. Having this would also help to get around the fact that the Grid +/- shortcuts don't seem to work on... more »
With automation spots, faders, etc. it'd be great to see an option where I can right-click and select 'Type in Value...' to get a pop-up or something like that. This could probably be used in a number of places throughout the app without really requiring the basic GUI to become more cluttered. Sliders & dials are great, sure, but sometimes it can be tough to get exactly the desired value, even when pressing Cmd. In... more »
Currently if you have any "extra" windows open (Plugins, Markers, System Usage, etc) you can press Ctrl+Opt+Cmd+W to close ALL extra windows. Cmd+W only closes the Edit and Mixer windows. But while you're tweaking a plugin's parameters, THAT window is active instead (Edit & Mixer window buttons are greyed out) so Cmd+W should just close THAT plugin's window, rather than the Edit window, shouldn't it? If you open a... more »
To me, one of the top features in Logic (and even GarageBand), but missing from ProTools, is this: Being able to put down a drum track, tell it where to play, tweak the complexity/loudness/fills/swing/etc, and straight away get a pretty decent 'human'-sounding drum track. It's also possible to have it 'follow' audio tracks and more effectively pick out a rhythm. It can even be copied to a MIDI track, tweaked and put to... more »
The majority of applications for Mac (and also some for Windows) support the two-finger pinch-to-zoom in/out gesture on touchpads, yet Pro Tools does not.
Cmd [ ] is great, but having this gesture-based functionality enabled would definitely make for faster workflow when moving around a session.
The two-finger drag works, so why not this?
Please fix the way the PT 11 engine handles plugins. It is very inefficient and produces "Out of CPU" DAW errors long before the CPU maximum is reached.
VI's such as Kontakt and PLAY struggle considerably within Pro Tools.
Elastic Audio changes audio-length only. Unfortunately all automation will stay at original length. This unlinked manner makes the nice Elastic Audio feature quite worthless in my opinion since all existing automation goes wrong after Elastic editing. So what about "Elastic-Automation" ? Intuitive standard behavior should be linked timescaling of Audio and Automation in one edit-step. Working title: "Elastic Audiomation".... more »
I wish you could COMMAND+DRAG the already created output of a track to the input of another for quick routing. You could do this for busses too.
When in an automation view of a track. Tab to transient should change to tab to automation breakpoint.
Hi guys, love the software. Would really help if we could name the tracks when we set them up. I.e. when create a new track, the fields would be 1) # tracks to create, 2 ) Mono or Stereo, 3) Type of track [Aux, Audio, Instrument etc...] 4) Sample or Ticks 5) Track Names. If there are multiple tracks to create, give us the option to name ALL new tracks at the create stage, or bypass the naming at this stage. This way when... more »
I could really use an in-session documentation feature. I always include a RTF file with a log of my hours that I worked and what I did. It would be nice if PT had a feature that would log my hours and allowed me to comment on this log and then print or export it. This would be a simple feature to program and would make documentation much easier to keep on top of.
Where is audio to midi?!? Digi, its 2009! You have a great program but sometimes I wonder... If we had this, we wouldn't have to buy Drumagog to replace live drum sounds. We'd do audio to midi, then use the new midi track with BFD or DFH Superior.
We could sing a bass line and then have XPand play it on the bass!
Shortcut for making two mono audio tracks into one stereo. Kind of the opposite of Split Stereo Track into 2 Mono Tracks.
