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!

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 »

Pro Tools hangs while restoring tracks

When opening sessions, occasionally I notice Pro Tools will beachball while attempting to restore tracks. It doesn't appear to be a specific track or even a specific session that triggers this behavior. When the hang occurs, I have to force quit Pro Tools. If I then try to relaunch Pro Tools, the application fails to open at all. I just see the Pro Tools icon bouncing in the dock. Restarting the machine typically resolves... more »

Proper interface scaling in Windows (high DPI support)

Pro Tools doesn't scale correctly in Windows.

For this reason, its interface is rendered very poorly on high DPI screens. Even experimenting with Windows' high DPI settings, there are several glitchy configurations and only one configuration that makes the interface usable.

I provide two screenshots which explain the problems experienced with 200% scaling on a 4K display.
They show Pro Tools 2018.4 (current version... more »

Fix EXS Import Bug in Structure

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 »
