Pro Tools 12 HD with Melodyne and VocAlign Full Integration

It would be one of the best features if Pro Tools could integrate with Melodyne and VocAlign in a way that makes them start analyzing whenever we start recording so that as soon as we finish that take it becomes available on the same wave screen but below the audio and in a way that makes pro tools start having Melodyne or VocAlign on the fly, whenever we need to tune or align something during the record process, sometimes ...more »

Fix RTAS Grey Space on 3rd Party Plugins

*Correction - This IS in fact an RTAS problem. If you look at the pictures below you will notice that the space is there because of the Pro Tools border on top. This is a poor design which should be smart enough to resize itself to the plugin at hand. Instead it dominates by adding that horrible looking greyspace and taking up very valuable screen real estate. As you can see there is a bunch of blank space to right of ...more »

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 »

Create Pro Series EQ Plugin

I love the Avid Pro Series EQ plugins. I would love to see the same philosophies and approach applied to an EQ plugin. Something along the lines of Fab Filter's Pro Q or DMG Audio's Equality or Equilibrium. Offering a high number of bands (16+), each being able to take on any shape or filter type. A spectrum analyzer would be lovely. There are lots of great EQ plugins out there but this would round out the Pro Series ...more »

Pro Tools Stock Plugin Dynamic 3 Compressor and Gate UI Sluggish

During audio playback and plugin mixing only with no other plugins inserted but just Avid's Dynamic 3 Compessor or Gate and the plugin window is open and on screen and mixing with the plugin the whole UI get really sluggish and lags but the audio is not delayed (similar to the El Capitan GUI lagginess before 12.5) but when I move the plugin window to the side almost out of sight the lag and sluggishness is completely ...more »

Edit View Separator Track / Space

I would love to be able to see more visual separation of sections of my mix in the edit view window. I often find myself putting in extra tracks to act as separators between elements in my mix. If I could insert a dedicated 'separator' track - that looked unique in some way - it would work well as a quick visual reference for navigating my way around the more complex mixes. Even just the ability to add empty space ...more »

Pro Tools Dock Automation workflow change.

The automation mode selected from the "fixed" automation mode buttons (to the right of the fader) should change the Auto Mode of the ATTENTIONED track without having to press the "Select" button. This is MUCH more intuitive & saves an extra button click. Additionally, for auto modes, this should be a simple "click", and not a "click & hold". There's very little chance that an errant click is going to "accidentally" change ...more »

Play from Left Edit Window Edge Command

I would love to have a key command to start playback from the left window edge in the Edit Window. It's a feature found on Logic, and I remember having used it extensively back in my Logic days... It is just so convenient, because I find myself often working on a specific section, zoomed in in the Edit Window. I know there's commands to play form the cursor, or Pre-Roll or to the edit cursor etc. but it would be great ...more »

Quickly translate the documentation into other languages than English.

Quickly translate the documentation into other languages than English. The translation of Avid are quality, but it's really too long now. We buy a multilingual software. Documentation must be multilingual and updated, as in Steinberg competitors Presonus. Magix. For example, new features in version 12 (.1, .2, .3, .4) are not translated. One also notes: often translated documents (in the case of pro tools 11) refer to ...more »

Can't raise the roof no more...

Ok, that one might need a bit of explanation... When in an Automation Lane in the Edit Window, grabbing a line between two nodes works as expected. You move that (flat) line up or down. But we used to be able to grab the line between two nodes with the key modifiers option-shift, and conveniently, the Automation would ramp up and/or down from the previous or next adjacent nodes, creating something like a roof with the ...more »
