MPE support (seaboard, linnstrument etc) trending idea

Now that alternative midi controllers are coming of age, it would be great to see support for MPE (multidimensional polyphonic expression). Bitwig's implementation is pretty good, AVID could more or less do the same, and maybe add some sort of snap/quantize to note editing.

I know that currently PT12 has stability issues with VI's, and these issues need to be a priority. But I think the community at large should not... more »

insert mode should follow plugins targeted on screen trending idea

After all these years the feature that has been present on all non-Eucon Avid controllers is still missing. Insert mode should follow plugins opened/targeted on screen. On Command|8, Control24, C|24, Icon, Pro Control, HUI controllers insert mode is always focused on currently targeted plugin (with little red target button in plugin window corner).

Why is this so important?

Let's assume we have a very large session.... more »

Mono track Track Bounce trending idea

I am scratching my head on this one. Whenever you do a track bounce it ONLY bounces stereo, even if the track is mono. If you switch to dual mono in the pop up dialogue menu then you get 2 mono ( L & R) ... even if its a mono track. This makes absolutely no sense. I feel this may be a bug or maybe it was just a missed implementation? I even tried selecting only mono tracks and it still bounces them as stereo. Soooo ....... more »

Elgato Stream Deck Pro Tools Feature Request trending idea

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 »

Show/hide toggle for plugin "header" trending idea

This is a simple idea, but one that would maximise screen real estate for those who like to keep certain plugin windows open all the time (ie. master bus plugins etc)

Have a clickable 'arrow' at the top left of a plugin window (the actual Pro Tools 'header' section, not the plugin GUI) that would allow you to show/hide the header section, displaying ONLY the track name.

There are certain situations when you don't... more »

Pro Tools hangs while restoring tracks trending idea

When opening sessions, occasionally I notice Pro Tools will beachball while attempting to restore tracks. It doesn't appear to be a specific track or even a specific session that triggers this behavior. When the hang occurs, I have to force quit Pro Tools. If I then try to relaunch Pro Tools, the application fails to open at all. I just see the Pro Tools icon bouncing in the dock. Restarting the machine typically resolves... more »

Hello, What I think is missing & should be integrated is when you want to punch in for ADR or voice / over & you have set yr preroll at 3 secs for example, a beep should sound on countdown before the recording actually begins, so the artist knows when to start. There should be an on/off display switch, ideally on the transport, or a shortcut for doing this. Thanks.
