Too many mix engineers receive sessions with missing audio files all because the non-pro users do not know that the simple preference "Automatically Copy Files on Import" is not, by default, checked on their system.
I was just informed that in Pro Tools 12.8.2, going forward, AVID programmers have abandoned the link feature altogether in preferences because they can't figure out how to fix it.. This means now you have to continuously enable groups every time you want to edit grouped tracks and then disable to avoid mixing grouped faders unwantingly. Please vote to make them figure out how to fix it. What's next?
Some of my mix sessions have A LOT of system delay on them.
What about offering a preference to 'push' automation back after a pass (similar to the 'thinning' option) by the system delay amount?
Some of my sessions have upward of 15,000 samples system delay and I have to manually nudge after every pass...
Please delete, my mistake!
Add mix preference: Sends default to [insert user definable number here] dB
In addition to the 'Sends default to -INF' pref, it would be great to have another option that allows the used to set a value.
Thanks for voting this idea up.
Better yet, there should just be one catch-all preference that allows you the option to copy all file types (audio, video, etc) on import. Pro Tools makes it incredibly difficult to make sure you've copied all files to your session.
It should be MUCH easier to avoid missing files in Pro Tools sessions. Especially hard drives... more »
My request is for an option or preference "Edits Are Global".
This would mean that when time is inserted to, or cut from the timeline, ALL tracks AND playlists whether active or inactive are effected .
The plugin layout would be done with an Avid Standalone Application on the desktop (before loading Pro Tools) where the user can setup folders, sub-folders and place all the plugins into the desired place. It would also be possible to rename plugins to what the user wants them to be called. The setup would be saved as "User" or "Custom".... more »
