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.

Mbox 3 Flashing light sequence.

I have been using my OS X Yosemite and Mbox3 together perfectly for the past 4 months, however my Mbox3 is now randomly flashing lights(Like it does when it boots) and my iMac says "Hardware not connected". I have updated all Drivers, checked the power source, changed the USB cable, and tried the Mbox on my other Mac that I have used it with before. Nothing I have tried has worked. Has anyone else had this problem/have... more »

Mbox3 No Activity on Signal Meter

Hey Guys!!!

I recently sent my Mbox3 for repairs due to hardware failure. after waiting a month I got it back it worked for one day....Now whenever I arm an audio track for a Mic or Instrument it produces no activity signal on the meter and only picks up vibrations if you tap the mic, and even that sounds distant and distorted. If I import an audio track into protools12 it does generate a signal on the meter, and the... more »

Mix nomenclature View inconsistency

The Track Label (aka - scrbble strip) is below the faders but the Aux Sends name labels are above their faders. I seem to inadvertently grab the wrong aux channel fader. If your display is at eye level, you would have to look above center in order to see the aux fader before you would see its label. So you have to look past theaux fader to determine which send fader you are looking at. Although the opposite is true when... more »

Instrument name truncation prioritizes node count

Weird heading, I know.
When you have multiple instrument tracks with the same instrument plug-in type, I.E., four Xpand!2 instances, they become titled as (Midi node#xxx):
Expand!2 1-2,
Expand!2 1-2,
Expand!2 1-3,
Expand!2 1-4, etc.
The insert will truncate the name to fit in the insert name field to Expand!2 but it is not clear which is assigned to that channel as it does not read it out.
Instead, something more... more »

New display counter

I would like to see a new display counter called metronome. This would be similar to the Bars|Beats counter, but would display the subdivision of the beat instead of the tree numbers that come after the beat, based on the grid value . Say there is a kick drum wave form on the and of bar 2 beat 3:
Standard Bars|Beats- 2|3|720
My idea (metronome)- 2/3/and

My reason for this change would be to make it easier for musicians... more »

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 »
