Show/hide toggle for plugin "header"

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 »

Cascading Multi bounce

I do Post audio. We have a client that does 100 phone number tags to a spot. It would be great to be able to write a script in protools to:

Bounce selected tracks/ starting with track # X _then mute track X and unmute track greater than the last.

My sub mix levels would be setup and you just user define: Cascade bounce Starting from track Number 5 Ending on Track number 105
The title for each bounce is grabbed from... more »

Customised naming of MIDI CC

With today's great use of software instruments that uses different MIDI CC to widely different things it would be very helpful if we could customise the name of the different CC.

For example, CC11 that is named Expression is often used for Dynamics. And CC1 that is named Mod Wheel is often used for Dynamics or Vibrato. But the usage is differs from instrument to instrument and even often customisable in the instruments.... more »

Pro Tools bugs

CPU usage spikes to 100% for no reason

The CPU usage will spike to 100% for no reason, even when nothing is playing. There are sometimes "Pro Tools ran out of CPU power" messages. This also happens with all plug-ins removed from the plug-ins folder, as well as when there is no session open and the software is simply open.

Greatly increasing the buffer helps some, but this is an unacceptable solution, as it adds latency.

Select all "Selection" markers in Memory Location Window



I don't understand why we can't select more than one selection marker.. I get it for regular markers as the playhead follows but a selection marker is an in/out point and would be great if I could select all 50 selected regions and copy them to a new track... Unless there is an existing way to do this I have not been able to figure out.

Pro Tools bugs

Playback glitch while editing in stereo playlist view.

During playback, editing a clip on a stereo track while in playlist view causes a system-wide playback glitch the first time an edit is made, and then a playhead jump on the second edit. Mono playlist editing doesn’t cause the glitch, but stereo and LCR do. PT 12.8.1 doesn't exhibit this behavior, 12.8.3 does.
