Elgato Stream Deck Pro Tools Feature Request

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 »

Buffer Adjustment without Closing out of Pro Tools - UAD Apollo on PC (Win7 Pro 64-bit)

As a working composer, I rely heavily on the ability to freely adjust buffer settings within an open working session; I need lower buffer settings to record new tracks, and often much higher buffers to mix/master. My workflow involves mixing as I go along, and Pro Tools on a Mac (with the UAD Apollo) allowed me to do this for years. Pro Tools 12.4 on a PC running Windows 7 Pro 64-bit requires a complete quitting of Pro... more »

Windows 10 MBOX 3 Drivers??

For the love of god, we need new drivers for the firewire audio device MBOX 3, it no longer works with PRO TOOLS on Windows 10. It was working when I upgraded from 8 to 10, but since making a clean install it no longer works. When you bring up the mixer panel and move sliders they are very jumpy, eventually it is a BSOD. I have cleaned drivers, reinstalled, changed out the firwire PCIE card. MBOX 3 no longer is compatible... more »

Audio Wild Record / Audio Clip Selection "Clip Source Window"

The Ability to record in the "Clip Source Window" a wild mono or stereo track, where the clip ends up in the Clip menu or a specified folder i.e Wild VO Records, saves a lot of time and maintains a clean timeline, rather than having to navigate through unneeded extra

tracks and clips on the timeline which is very time consuming. please see attachment.

Consolidate from source media still copies the entire file

When I import session data, "Consolidate from source media" still copies the entire file to the new session's audio files folder.

From the manual (pg. 336 in the 12.4 reference guide):
"Consolidate from Source Media
Use this setting to copy the audio from the source project to the Pro Tools session, while removing all unused areas in the copies. For example, you might only be using ten seconds of a ten-minute audio file... more »

Full support for MXF OP1a files

Pro Tools has support for MXF. Unfortunately, there are tons of different flavors of MXF around... As a broadcaster, we use OP1a files, containing video and 16 tracks of audio.
Pro Tools only imports the Video from these files. (Kind of odd for DAW software, no?)

Pro Tools currently only imports audio from MXF OPAtom files, which have separate files for audio and video.

Since our complete workflow - from ingest to playout... more »

Event Operations - Change Velocity Randomize Bug

I wanted to Randomize a number of notes all with the same velocity in the MIDI Editor. So... I enabled Scale By set to 100% then changed the Randomize amount. Instead of simply randomizing the notes, Pro Tools is creating duplicates. The higher the Randomize parameter is set, greater numbers of duplicate notes are created. This is with 12.5.2 HD.

Mixer Playlist Feature

My suggestion is that the Pro Tools Mixer has Playlists. So for example:

1. You could duplicate a mix, try different things, go off at a tangent etc.
2. Create a new mix. "Zero" the mixer and start again with the option of going back to the original.
3. Move tracks between mixes. For example, duplicate a mix and get a better drum sound, then copy those tracks into the original mix that was otherwise fine.
4. Splice sections... more »

PT 12.6.0 bug: Fix CMD-click fine tuning of trim automation

As per title. CMD-clicking a trim automation node in PT 12.6.0 does not give 0.1 dB fine tuning of the automation, instead it snaps the node to the grid, even in slip mode. CMD-clicking regular volume automation still works as expected. (The current workaround is using the "extreme" track height temporarily)

Bring back Full Screen mode! (removed since 12.6.1)

just installed 12.6.1 on MacOS El Capitan 10.11.6, upgraded from 12.5.2. Full Screen mode no longer works. I click the green button, and it just (vaguely) Maximizes the window, instead of entering Full Screen.

This makes Pro Tools break the standard of MacOS since at least Mountain Lion, and is a severe hindrance to usability on small screens like a laptop. The standard for MacOS is that clicking the green button enters... more »
