Allow "Delete Unused" playlists feature to be specific to the selected track

Currently, the "Delete Unused" playlists feature shows you a list of every unused playlist for every track. When there are many tracks with multiple playlists, it is often time-consuming to manually distinguish and select between the unused playlists for the current track and others. It would be helpful if there was a way to filter the list to show only the unused playlists for the currently-selected track(s). An alternative ...more »

Pro Tools bugs

alt-command-U brings up strip silence in 2018.4

without a selection or a selection over the empty time-line hitting alt-command-U (ungroup) brings up the strip silence window., Seems like a new bug, Doesn't happen in 2018.1. The command for strip silence is command-U not alt-command-U. The later is ungroup.

 

Please fix as this messes up workflow when conforming recuts.

Add Pitch Shift to Clip-Based Effects

As a sound designer and editor clip-based EQ has gotten so much use from me. Please add a basic pitch shift functions to the clip-based interface, it would save so much time for sound design.

You could just use Pitch II and have a single slider in the ...more »

The channels would include the original PT insert points, with the entire Duality channel strip available below it, as well as faders, sends, and pan pots. The master would have the Buss Compressor as the first insert ...more »

XFORM - multithreading

Guys - it's 2018 - XForming tracks in a post environment should be utilizing multi-core CPUS... all available. Meanwhile, I'm sitting here waiting over 25 minutes for XFORM to complete a pitch shift on a 1 x 5.1 stem and 5 stereo folds that are 5 minutes long and it's not even halfway complete. Protools HDX is using 146% CPU. So a core and a half during this audio suit process. System CPU usage is sitting at TWO ...more »

Memory Location Window Search Feature

Howdy, I think it would be very handy to add a search bar inside the memory location window. If you are working in a super session on a film or series and have markers indicating locations down the timeline, it would be great to type in "grounds ext" and all the location markers that have "grounds ext" in the name pop up, then you can easily click through and find the right instance you're looking for. This would be ...more »

Allow Avid Hardware to work with Pro Tools Vanilla

Surely the current method of hardware compatibility is no longer working? Pro Tools vanilla users can use any audio interface they like with Pro Tools... except Avid's. Pro Tools vanilla users can use any DSP powered plugin platform... except Avid's. Pro Tools vanilla users can use any low latency monitoring app (total mix, Apollo console, antelope studio)... except Avid's. Pro Tools vanilla users can use any 32 ...more »
