Copy/paste from a session to another

It would be great to have the ability to open a session, select one or several clips and/or markers, or anything else, copy them, close the session, open another one, and paste it. Would be useful in addition to the "import session data..." that only works with tracks.

Smart tool with selector and grabber only

I would like to have another smart-tool-mode without the trim tool. I almost never use the trim tool doing all editing with keyboard shortcuts (a and s for clip edges), but I constantly have to use selecting und grabbing tool. Getting your cursor at the beginning or end of a clip can somertimes be very fiddly, while the smart tool changes to the trim tool whenever you come close to the edge of a clip.

Duplicate origional clip to playlist when processing from Audiosuite

During a sound effects editing session where a lot of Audiosuite processing is used it would be useful if Pro Tools would automatically save a copy of the pre-processed clip to a playlist. I usually duplicate this down myself so if I come back to the clip and I no longer like the fx precessing then I have the original below in the playlist ready to retrieve. If I've used multiple processes it would be handy to have an... more »

Embed Audiosuite parameter settings in to the processed clip for later recall

It would be handy to retrieve parameter settings from a clip that has been processed by an Audiosuite plugin

If you wanted to go back to a processed clip at a later stage and couldn't remember how exactly you processed it you could right click on the clip and there would be an 'Audiosuite Memory' option. Another menu would open from this listing all Audiosuite plugins used on the clip then for each one 'copy processed... more »

PT Ultimate - Breaks Memory Location Properties

PT Ultimate jumbles saved general properties (such as Track Show/Hide, Track Heights, Window Config's, etc) in memory location markers when you change markers or on closing/reopening the session. A full preference dump has not fixed the issue.

 

S3 layouts maintain correct tracks when locked down so it must be the PT Ultimate.

 

Highly frustrating when working with big sessions!

Misc

Streamline CPU usage..

What exactly is protools 10HD thinking about when sitting idle?

On an empty session with a single stereo aux passing through audio to my monitors - 38.4% CPU usage with 74 threads sitting idle doing nothing.

48/24 session @ 128 samples

Logic on the hand, 300 tracks up with about 70 VI's sitting idle - same specs is using 12% / 161 threads sitting idle.

What exactly is PT doing that is needing that much juice?

Please fix CPU usage issue

The CPU utilization jumps to 100% for no reason, even without any tracks recorded. Please fix this. The problem happens on my system with an i9-7900X processor with 64GB RAM. This system is far more powerful than 99% of all PCs out there, yet Pro Tools will spike the CPU to 100% when low-latency is utilized.

This is unacceptable. I have used Pro Tools for decades, but this is not being fixed and it is becoming... more »

Match Tracks on only selected tracks in Import Session Data Window

I can’t believe I haven’t asked for this before. A lot of the time I just want to import tracks from one session into another. The track James tend to match because I work with templates. Most of the time I want to just select a bunch of tracks and hit Match Tracks only on those tracks. I can’t seem to do this.
