AAE -9173 error when using big plug in chains on the masterbus / "extra large audio playback buffer size" trending idea

Its a known problem that big plug in chains on the PT masterbus are making the CPU meter nervous and produces AAE-9173 errors, also when the CPU is less than 50%. The AAE can not handle those plug in chains in real time. this do not depent on the CPU power.

I have the following idea: Please give us an option in the audio buffer preferences for an "extra large audio playback buffer size" for handling big plug in chains... more »

Automated mutes design trending idea

Since the earliest days of PT automation the mutes have been a stumbling block. Somehow even if mute automation is inactive on the automation panel, they get written. I, out of habit deactivate mute automation by going to medium track view, select mute automation view, and apply option/command on the mute button - this deactivates all mute automation, making it a stupid switch. There is a world where automated mutes are... more »

Smart tool and Selector tool selection bug? trending idea

I'm clicking in the top half of a region with the Smart Tool (so the i beam appears) to place the cursor. Sometimes when I'm doing this everything in the Edit window gets selected. It's like I've hit select all. If I switch to the Selector tool it still happens.

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 »

bus menu skips "&" symbol

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.

Pro Tools Single-Key Shortcuts with german Keyboardlayout on Windows
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 »

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 »
