Then, wherever I click in the session with the Selector tool or upper half of a playlist with the Smart Tool, everything remains selected rather than simply... more »
ProTools can not render Duplicated-Mono-Clips on Elastic-Audio-enabled Sterotracks.
(Usually the problematic Mono-Clips are badly hidden between lots of Stereoclips, when delivered from the Soundsdesigner).
When editing clips sometimes the cursor won't change to the "trim" version of the cursor. Look at the video. I was using the multi-tool editing the clips.
In order to have very short track names i would like to use the "&" symbol as a ideally short name for my MIX-BUS (where all signals are "added"). Unfortunately pro tools does not show up this [&]-symbol inside the bus-menu which is confusing.
FYI: testet with ProTools Ultimate 2018.4 and latest macOS 10.13.4 HighSierra
Note: The alternative "Σ" [Sigma] symbol is used for my MASTER before Mixbus already.
In Pro Tools 12 on Windows 7 the single-key shortcuts in commands keyboard focus are not consistent with a German keyboard layout. This concerns all keys that do not match with the American keyboard layout, "Track-View Toggle" for example lies on the German minus-key and not on the ß-Key where it is supposed to be. The setting "Auto switch input language"... more »
name a track something like:
the files recorded on to this track will end up being labeled "Donna_01" as opposed to what you expect "Donna-Boom_01"
I record a lot of ADR and the extension "-Boom" is pretty important to distinguish between this channel and the "-Lav" channel, being simultaneously recorded. My work-around solution is to just name the tracks "Donna-Bom" and "Donna-Lav" -- so my clients... more »
1. Take any track with playlists.
2. Listen to the main playlist.

4. Save the session.
5. Close the session.
6. Open the session.
7. The solo button for the alternate playlist is still enabled, but the main playlist is playing.
8. Toggle the solo button for the alternate... more »
When you are in volume view of a track and you have the trim tool selected, trimming the volume of a region without first double clicking the region will result in only the unfaded part of the region's volume being trimmed, which is stupid. Never in nearly twenty years of mixing in ProTools have I wanted to adjust the overall volume of a region but not have the fade in and out affected.
Found on Pro Tools M-Powered 8.0.4cs2:
1. Make a track inactive - everything is greyed out.
2. Save and load session.
3. Pan buttons not greyed out on inactive tracks - and they are movable.
When I import tracks from a session that does NOT start at hour 1 (let's say from Reel 2/hour 2) into a session that DOES start at hour 1... The new tracks are placed at the correct spot in the timeline, with all associated mix automation data EXCEPT the send automation! Any send automation is separated from the regions and placed out of sync at the beginning... more »
