A build-in plugin manager that would allow you to turn plugins on or off AND clearly specifies the correct versions of the installed plugins. After restarting Pro Tools your plugins would then be turned on or off according to the settings you made in the plugin manager. It would be fantastic if it could be done WITHOUT a restart of Pro Tools, BUT even if i do have to restart Pro Tools this would make such a difference ...more »
This line of plugins with 8.0 is really pretty wonderful. I am so happy with em. But why not include a general use plugin for fast frequency analyzer with a nice graphic display to assist with more efficient eq adjustments.
Just a nice stock Vocoder please.
Would it be an idea to assign a new plugin to a track in pro tools in the same way you open an application in OSX via spotlight. Here's an example: - Click on an empty insert - Start writing the plugin's name. For example "EQ3..." - Pro tools suggests "EQ3 1-Band" and "EQ3 7-band". - If you continue writing "EQ3 7", Pro Tools would automatically insert the 7-band eq, because there are no other options left. Hope you ...more »
Say you want to compare 2 compressor plugins on 1 track. Right now you have to bypass one, then un-bypass the other, so there's a gap in the comparison. It's A-C-B, not truly A-B. Or, you have to duplicate the track and put one comp on one and the other comp on the other; mute one track; put the 2 tracks in a mix group; click either mute to toggle which track is muted. Once you've made your choice, ungroup and delete ...more »
It would be nice to have a shortcut while dragging plugins around that would shuffle the order of plugins. This way the user can experiment with the plugin chain order.
It wouldn't need to be a shortcut key, just a menu option... It would make cleaning up a session (and unavailable plugins) easy peasy, squeaky clean style.
It would be great if you could move or copy a plug-in in-between two contiguous plug-ins.
At present, we only have the option to replace one of the plug-ins and it is time-consuming dragging plug-ins down first to create a empty insert slot.
When hovering in-between two plug-ins a highlighted line should inform the user the dragged plug-in will be inserted in-between these plug-ins.
Currently if you have any "extra" windows open (Plugins, Markers, System Usage, etc) you can press Ctrl+Opt+Cmd+W to close ALL extra windows. Cmd+W only closes the Edit and Mixer windows. But while you're tweaking a plugin's parameters, THAT window is active instead (Edit & Mixer window buttons are greyed out) so Cmd+W should just close THAT plugin's window, rather than the Edit window, shouldn't it? If you open a ...more »

Half of my plug-ins have expired, however they still appear in the Audiosuite and Insert menus. With the recent craze of Pro Tools 12 and the whole "rent-a-plugin", Pro Tools is no longer asking nor moving the plug-ins without a valid licence to the unused folder. (I can understand and assume why of this behaviour because of the rent feature), but a) I don't want to see the expired plugins still showing as It is really ...more »
