Automation should follow Elastic Audio

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 »

Curve Automation PLEASE!

I would really like a curve (parabolic) feature added to the automation tools of PT.. Most every other daw (even FL Studio) has this feature and it is really helpful for creating smooth automation for cutoff filters, pitch bends etc... It sucks to have to switch daws to do it right... I was really hoping 9 would introduce this. Seems like such a minor addition. How can we make this happen??

Automation ADC

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...

Enable Typing-In of Automation and Other Values

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 »

Automation Playlists

It'd be great to have playlists for automation. I'm a composer who frequently mixes music to Voiceover. I'll often do final automation tweaks on the master music bus. I then have to find a way to bypass or change those automation tweaks if the client wants the music without VO for another purpose. If there were automation playlists, I could recall different automation needs within the same session without having to ...more »

Make "Convert Volume Automation To Clip Gain" available in PT Standard

"Convert/Coalesce Volume Automation To Clip Gain" & "Convert/Coalesce Clip Gain To Volume Automation" are currently only available in the HD version of Pro Tools. As it is not a feature that requires special processing power or an expansion of I/O possibilities it should be made available to all Pro Tools users.

Automatic Pop-up of additional Automation Lane when clicking further plug-in parameters

Start+Ctrl-clicking (Win) a plug-in parameter sets the track view to that automation lane. A new command like e.g. Shift+Start+Ctrl-clicking on another parameter of this plug-in would automatically open an additional automation lane. This avoids clicking on the little triangle and searching in a long list of parameters in the drop down menu. Useful to quickly display only those automation lanes for further editing, that ...more »

Assignable LFOs For All Automation Parameters (Automatic Automation)

Any parameter that could be automated could be controlled by a continuous LFO by linking the parameter to the LFO. For Examples: A Sine Wave LFO that controls a Frequency Cutoff of an EQ Plugin, or a Square Wave LFO assigned to a channel Pan control, or a Sawtooth LFO assigned to an FX Send. The LFO Frequency should be able to be set in Seconds, Samples, Bars/Beats, Etc. and the width and curve of the LFO's parameter ...more »

Mix Scenes / Automation Scenes

Pro Tools would benefit from having recallable mix "scenes" (or Automation parameter scenes) available within a single session. Users should be able to generate and store an arbitrary number of recallable scenes. When a scene is recalled, the faders, pans, send, plug-in settings/bypass, etc all change to their saved vales. This feature can allow for a number of significant workflow improvements. It would allow: -Alternate ...more »

allow trim automation for ANY (plugin) parameter

Right now trim automation is only possible for volume automation. It would be great to have trim automation for any parameter, including panning and plug-in parameters. There's absolutely no reason why this wouldn't be possible. Right now it's totaly ridiculous that you have to grab that mouse to fine tune any non-volume automation parameter even if you're sitting behind a quadrillion dollar Avid console. This is an absolute ...more »
