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 »
You're recording guitars by yourself.. you know it's going to take you a few goes. So with this feature you can set up a looping section (with enough time for fiddling/tuning/whatever) and once the allotted loop has recorded through. it starts again so you get another shot. and automatically playlists the previous record.
A plugin insert section on an audio track that commits any processing while recording. Currently, the only way to commit processing while tracking in protools in to have the audio come in on an auxiliary track, apply eq, compression, etc, and then bus it to an audio track to be recorded. This takes up space in the box and is a hassle that can sometimes cause confusion in the middle of a hectic recording session. This... more »
Doing undo after recording deletes the file permanently once another process is made. I would very much like an option where the file doesn't get deleted. Having an on/off switch on the delete feature of undo.
It would be safer for unwanted press of "z"
It would let the user choose if they want the number increment of the recordings to take the deleted takes into account or not.
In the MIDI editor, you can solo and mute the track you're working on, but you can't record-enable it. You also can't tell if it may already be record-enabled. It would really help my workflow to be able to quickly pop into record without flipping back to either the mix or edit windows to know what track(s) are currently record enabled and be able to modify that from here.
A very useful function when remote recording from a live room (or similar) and away from the computer would be a customisable or preset screen with large transport buttons and and additional smaller touch buttons for "new playlist" etc.
The feature to lock the fader position or disable fader at all.
for example usefull:
- If you monitor through recording Stem-Tracks
- have post fader Auxes
- or have post fader Metering
The Ability to record in the "Clip Source Window" a wild mono or stereo track, where the clip ends up in the Clip menu or a specified folder i.e Wild VO Records, saves a lot of time and maintains a clean timeline, rather than having to navigate through unneeded extra
tracks and clips on the timeline which is very time consuming. please see attachment.
Select Clips by Color will really help to extent your workflow.
- When recording dialogue/Foley/Soundscapes and selecting the best takes.
- Preparing ADR & Foley tracks
- Export different stems all over your session.
- And way more options
And to finish this idea, Make the colors available for Apple Script or Something else programmable.
Not sure if this is possible, but when recording/printing mixes to new track, I would love the ability to select multiple in and out points throughout the timeline to create a "Recording Queue." I think this could be particularly valuable in post production workflows, where multiple versions of a mix may be created within one session. Example workflow: you're mixing a :30 broadcast promo, and there are 6 versions—all... more »
