Prevent Pro Tools from pausing/skipping.

Every time when I play my Pro Tools project and while playing I try to add an instrument track, or an audio track, or an effect, or a send or change the cycle Pro Tools will pause for a moment.

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 »

Custom plug-in Mapping on Any Controller

Let us Custom plug-in map any parameter to "Any" Midi Controller (not just Avid apporaved ones) using the 'Right-click' button on our mouse?

New Assignments would always overwrite Old Assignments

Just right-click and just select controller of your choice, then may be 'save' my choice as MIDI Preset in some kind of drop down menu on the plugin, where you can bring up the settings again to overwrite the current settings... more »

MIDI Editor Window Configuration upgrade

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.

Midi Note Movement with Keystrokes

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.

Midi real time controls behave like Logic Pro X

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 »

''Chords'' and ''Markers'' in the big counter

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.

Separate MIDI notes on grid shortcut

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 »

Add an INPUT MONITORING BUTTON to instrument tracks

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 »

MIDI Editor Window track record enable button

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.

 

Thanks!

Midi Import track names and assignment to general midi patches or like named instruments.

I was the Pro Tools "expert" at a DAW competition at Berklee College of music earlier in January 2018.
Many features had me winning over Logic, Ableton and Garage band. One that made Pro Tools look inept was what happened when importing an elaborate MIDI file. This was one that had a decent mock up 30+ tracks of the score from Raiders of the Lost Ark.
All the other DAW's read the midi track names on import. PT12.8.3 did... more »
