Custom Organize plugins menu into folders & sub-folders

Let people organise the their plugins menu into folders & sub-folders the way they want.

The plugin layout would be done with an Avid Standalone Application on the desktop (before loading Pro Tools) where the user can setup folders, sub-folders and place all the plugins into the desired place. It would also be possible to rename plugins to what the user wants them to be called. The setup would be saved as "User" or "Custom".... more »

This would be particularly helpful when jumping around as one edits different material on different tracks. Also for auditioning for a director or producer. Particularly useful... more »

Another idea was to assigned that knob to the pan of the attentioned track. The right side of stereo tracks could be controlled by depressing the button while turning.

Proper interface scaling in Windows (high DPI support)

Pro Tools doesn't scale correctly in Windows.

For this reason, its interface is rendered very poorly on high DPI screens. Even experimenting with Windows' high DPI settings, there are several glitchy configurations and only one configuration that makes the interface usable.

I provide two screenshots which explain the problems experienced with 200% scaling on a 4K display.
They show Pro Tools 2018.4 (current version... more »

The Elgato Stream Deck is not a "qualified" third party device to work with Pro Tools.
It works completely fine in Pro Tools on MAC OS, but does not work correctly within Windows when assigning a button to a hot key using the 'alt' modifier key.

Dear Avid support,
Setup 1:
If you are not familiar with the Elgato Stream Deck, it is a fully customizable LCD screen with buttons to trigger basically anything you please... more »
