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 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 »

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 »

SEL button shift for Trim automation toggle

I'd like the SEL button to also have a shift layer that enables the Trim automation mode to be toggled.

 

So just as the REC/A button can be used to (1) record enable a track, or (2/shifted) to toggle through automation modes; the SEL button would (1) select the track or (2/shifted) to toggle trim automation.

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 »

PT 12.6.0 bug: Fix CMD-click fine tuning of trim automation

As per title. CMD-clicking a trim automation node in PT 12.6.0 does not give 0.1 dB fine tuning of the automation, instead it snaps the node to the grid, even in slip mode. CMD-clicking regular volume automation still works as expected. (The current workaround is using the "extreme" track height temporarily)

PT Native HD doesn't compensate for plugin delay changes while recording

For example, take two audio tracks (i.e.dialog source tracks) and bus them to the same recording audio track (stem). Insert identical plugins on both source tracks. The plugins should be something, which plugin processing delay DEPENDS ON AUTOMATABLE PLUGIN PARAMETERS. I noticed this phenomena with Fabfilter Pro DS that has three switchable parameters (split band, look ahead, oversampling), which influence the plugin... more »
