License the ICON network Control format

So that you get a revenue stream from:
Yamaha
SSL
Euphonix
Smart AV
HUI
Roland
etc. etc

Perhaps us editors might then get a control surface that is more sophisticated than the Command 8 but smaller than any of the Icons. Also suited to key combo button quickkeys on a touch screen with the ability to patch into an Icon on the Dub stage to do editing changes to the music (for us music editors) without the need to offload... more »

CHANGE DEVELOPMENT PHILOSOPHY, become more music / creativity oriented

Start being a music company that uses software and hardware as a vehicle for creativity. Stop coding like a software company who just happens to do music.

Import Session DATA option

When importing session DATA from a different session. (Let's say, for example, importing a Voice Over into a documentary from a separate VO session...) It is very handy to utilize the 'offset' feature on some occasions.

I would like to propose that marker information be linked to the offset as well as the media being imported. The markers are rendered useless in this instance the way the import session data feature is... more »

Interface configuration applet

Move the H/W Buffer setting into the Hardware Setup window and decouple the Hardware Setup from Pro Tools and run it as a separate applet. This applet should be able to save hardware configurations for instant recall, should run from the desktop, and should be what you use to configure the attached HD/LE interfaces for use with ASIO or CoreAudio. This will improve consistency and uniformity with all the different Avid... more »
