When you are producing a track that is so annoying and it takes you out of your creative flow.
I know no other sequencer on the market that has this issue. And this can't be a CPU or a Ram issue because the competition clearly... 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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
A midi arpeggiator much like the one found in ableton live. A midi effect that arpeggiates midi signals, used to control plugins or hardware. A full suite of such midi tools would sure be great, but an arpeggiator would be a nice start.
The competition has had this sort of creation tools for years.
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.
In the MIDI editor, you can solo and mute the track you're working on, but you can't record-enable it. You also can't tell if it may already be record-enabled. It would really help my workflow to be able to quickly pop into record without flipping back to either the mix or edit windows to know what track(s) are currently record enabled and be able to modify that from here.
