PT 2018.7 Broken Xform Render Region naming

2018.7 bug: when dragging an Xformed region to a non-elastic track to render audio PT no longer adds the suffix Xfor-Xfor to the rendered audio filename. This makes it impossible to keep track of which clips have been processed or not, breaking a vital part of post pro workflow. See attached screen grabs for correct behaviour in 2018.4 and incorrect behaviour in 2018.7.

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.

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.

Fix EXS Import Bug in Structure Implemented

Structure does not work for EXS users. Most of our EXS instruments do not play when opened up without troublesome readjustment of envelope settings. They have the infamous EXS Attack Sustain Decay Release envelope bug which prevents rapid auditioning of my 50,000 sampler instruments to sort through. AIR knows very well of this major bug. I only use my 160GB EXS library, therefore, my top-of-the-line version of Structure... more »

Satellite Play / Stops at wrong location

For users who use Satellite there was a new bug introduced for Protools 8.1 on a Snow Leopard system using OSX on both system when you press stop the video goes back to the first frame that was played back. This confusing producers because they thing you scrolled back to the original starting point when in fact it is the satellite video that's randomly going back in time to a place that you aren't at in your edit window.... more »

Automation Clicks and Pops

There is a serious problem that can and does occur with pro tools automation. It seems to happen more with the volume bar graph. You can make an automation point and it can cause a very noticeable "POP" and or "Click" during playback. You can hear the POP and assume its an analogue noise coming from your vocal chain. After zooming, scrubbing and looking for the offender (which is normally found very easily when zooming... more »

Fix Incorrect Error Messages Implemented

As if constantly getting error messages isn't annoying enough it would be nice if they actually made sense.

For example, I get this message ALL the time -

"Out of memory during Elastic Audio processing. Please switch to render mode. (-9419)"

Many of us can assure you Avid that we are neither out of memory or even using Elastic Audio so what's the point of this message?

It tells me nothing about the actual problem... more »

Latch automation & multi-mono plugins Implemented

Why is it that MM plugins seems to be primed even after Write to all? This doesn't happen with their Multichannel counterparts. Further explanation follows...

instantiate a MM plugin
auto-enable all parameters
enable latch automation and the "Allow latch prime in stop" pref
select a preset for the plugin - I chose Factory default for all my tests
hit Write to all
The result is that Plugin will still show in bold... more »

Entire session is selected and goes into reverse color scheme intermittently when selecting a Clip Implemented

Since protools 8 i've had this intermittent bug that when you select a region sometimes an accidental mouse drag or other trigger occurs and the entire session is selected and goes into reverse color scheme. the only way to get out of this mode is to select another spot on the timeline. sometimes it takes a few tries to actually get it to stop behaving this way. sorry its not repeatable, its hard to know when its going... more »
