I would love to have an option to switch MIDI editor to DRUM EDIT MODE where there would be diamond or triangle markers for note start without showing its length. Would be also nice to have a possibility to switch from classic piano roll to MIDI note number mode, to set names for notes, load and save note names to file and display custom layers (e.g. show only named notes or show notes defined by user).
This is probably one of the largest setbacks to Pro Tool's Midi Platform. Being able to move around midi notes with the numerical keyboard is a must have feature that would take little to no time to program into the software. Key features such as moving around notes with the arrow keys, lengthening and shortening notes with a secondary key command, and octave skips are necessary in such a program as Pro Tools.
It would be nice to be able to have markers showing when opening a midi clip in piano roll.. Would save me a lot to time!
In PT 12.5 and 12.4 the midi functionality is so buggy as to be unusable. There are multiple issues - stuck notes, crashes, etc.
To separate MIDI notes on the grid: 1. Set the Grid value. 2. Make an Edit selection or a marquee selection that includes the MIDI notes you want to separate. 3. Choose Edit > Separate > On Grid. 4. In the Pre-Separate Amount dialog, click OK. I've been using this feature a lot since discovering it hidden away in the edit menu, but I like to work quickly with keyboard shortcuts and I feel slowed down having to use the... more »
Why are everyday CCs like Mod Wheel and Sustain Pedal nested in a submenu in the controller lane, below arcane controllers such as Program Change, Mono Aftertouch and Sysex. This is a holdover from ancient versions of the software, time for a quick update.
Please have the midi real time controls behave like Logic Pro X so while you are playing a midi clip you can fine tune and adjust midi data (quantize, velocity, etc) with sliders. This would eliminate hitting "Apply". Truly in realtime and accessible in the midi window like Logic Pro X's midi editor window on the left. Logic has collapse mode which gives focus to only the data recorded and not the whole piano roll. Very... more »
I know we have the events list, but it would be nice if it was updated, so that we can see incoming and outgoing midi messages.
This would make life easier, when working with controllers or iPad controllers like Lemur
Allow Window Configurations of the MIDI Editor window to save current MIDI controller lane views. Currently they save window layout, but not specific controller lane views.
For example, save one MIDI Editor Window Config that is just Mod Wheel, one that's velocity + volume + expression, one that's just pitch bend, etc.
Presently, notes in the MIDI Editor are assigned by Pro Tools. This is inefficient and difficult to follow (if for instance you're doing a big orchestral session with a lot of different parts that you want to view/edit simultaneously). A better solution would be allow the choice of setting colors for the notes/tracks in the MIDI Editor to either be user-selected from a palette, or to follow the main Track Color.... more »
Make all midi/instrument tracks available in the drop down. Add a multi-track pop up to not require closing and opening the midi editor so often when working with a lot of midi parts.
I utilise the transpose semitone key command all the time and would find a octave transpose key command very useful and a huge time saver.
Will be great for musicians and producers to see the chords in the big counter, specially in recording session situations. I've seen this option in old softwares of big mix consoles.
Important: An option for MIDI chord recognition, and send them directly to the chord rule. AVID Sibelius is the best example for this option.
I would like to see Instrument tracks have an ' input monitoring button ' ..., the same as Audio Tracks do. Many people actually rehearse their gig ...., - trigger samples to tempo maps etc running in pro tools,, - or others who like JAM along via Pro Tools on a Macbook Pro's etc with a decent low latency Interface hooked up to their rehearsal room P.A's , and once in a blue moon they may actually record with it.... more »
Currently (PT 12.8), when freezing instrument tracks, it will not mute the MIDI output of that track automatically. So, for example, if you're routing several instrument tracks to one instance of Kontakt, when you freeze the tracks, unless you mute the MIDI output of each one manually, they'll still play in the background and use up resources. The feature I'm requesting is to simply make it so whenever you freeze a... more »
