Add an Automation Event List

Adding an Automation Event List (similar to the MIDI Event List) would be a welcome feature to Pro Tools. To summarize: it would be the Automation counterpart to the MIDI Event List. Much like the MIDI counterpart, this event list would be a floating or docked window that would have a drop-down selector to choose the displayed track. It would list all automation breakpoints with three columns: location (time), parameter... more »

Plug In Editing / Automating

Full iPad screen editing of any plugin. How it might work: * Click on plugin send with mouse within Pro Tools. * Instead of bringing up the selected plugin window within Pro Tools as it usually would, it simply highlights the send (perhaps red) and throws the plugin window directly onto your iPad screen, scaled to the iPads full size screen for real time touch editing. * Alongside/above the plugin graphics on the iPad,... more »

Users that had CPTK forced to HD license should be paying the vanilla Yearly fee, not the HD fee for subscription,

Users that had CPTK forced to HD license when avid discontinued it- should be paying the vanilla Yearly fee not HD for subscription, As did not have another option and also we don't have any HD or DSP cards, this is something we paid for along with Pro tools LE to use basic things like more tracks and automation modes and at the time it was an add on we paid 2k for and continued to upgrade the LE version at scale and... more »

Pro Tools 12.2 Plugins Ignore the High DPI scaling in Windows 10

Am I the only person who is having this issue? I'm using a Samsung 28" 4K monitor and whenever i use any of the Avid plugins in Pro Tools (Specifically and of the AIR products and Xpand 2) my whole DAW window shrinks in size and is unreadable. Before image: http://tinypic.com/r/2lboltz/8 After Image http://tinypic.com/r/dot9aa/8 It's like as if the plugins overwrite the High DPI scaling done by Windows 10. IS there... more »

relink files from the edit window

We need the ability to relink unlinked files directly from the Edit window. There is no menu to open directly the relink window, the only way to open it is to find unlinked file in the workspace window and then to activate the relink function. It is long and boaring I want to relink missing files directly from the edit menu, by a function on the dropdown menu. Or i need an item in the window menu to open the link windows.... more »

Better controls for EQ automation on S3

When using the Pro Tools S3 with EQ3 7-band or Channel strip plugin the parameter slope is missing when you press EQ in the upper row knobs on the console. This is really annoying since every other parameter is there. Another thing is that the HPF and LPF enable buttons can be edited both with the in button and a knob. A simple solution would be to use this knob for the slope parameter instead.

Hotkey for Equal Power/Equal Gain Crossfades

Working in post, I find I very frequently have to use both types of crossfades. I have to frequently go into my preference to switch the default back and forth between Equal Power and Equal Gain, and no matter which it's set on, I have to manually change the fade type for many edits. It would be awesome to be able to just hold Shift or Option while creating a fade in order to create whichever type of fade isn't currently... more »

Sample Accurate plugin automatin

I wish ProTools had sample accurate plugin automation. Plugin automation seems to be only frame accurate. For example, if I paste an EQ setting on a clilp, with a low filter on it (or any other eq). you will hear the sweep of the plugin moving to the pasted setting on playback. If you continue to play this spot, the sweep will be slightly different each time, I've tried this with most of my plugins and it seems to universally... more »

Preference default EQ/Dynamics with preset

You can select a favorite EQ or compressoer but you cannot select a preset version of it. I.E. I have created a preferred limiter setting with my default parameters, but I cannot instantiate it to multiple tracks using shift/alt(opt). You first must instantiate the default plug-in and then, one at a time, reselect at preset of it.

Keep incomplete (real-time) bounces that ended with an error

When a real-time Bounce to Disk ends prematurely because of any error (90% of the cases are CPU spikes that stop it in random points), don't delete it, letting the user running another bounce from the point it stopped! Realtime bounces are still needed when passing through analog hardware. I'm using Pro Tools since 2004, and since then I had the problem of bounces stopping randomly; so I find myself running smaller,... more »
