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. I know elastic properties can do something similar, but that requires having elastic audio enabled on the track and I'd prefer to see the pitch shift in semi-tones. You could just use Pitch II and have a single slider in the ...more »

SSL Duality Delta Full-Console Emulation

I just started working with a SSL Duality Delta console for mixing, and I would love to see all its parameters (signal flow, processors, and harmonic characteristics) emulated as a togglable option in PT. 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 »

Volume Fader For Metronome Button

Just thought about a 'click and hold' on the metronome button to bring up a little Volume Fader. Although you can use the Aux/Audio Track fader, I'd rather have that all hidden away, saved for when I need to go in on it. Instead of having to reach for the volume fader, how about a little volume slider (like the one you see in the Workspace Browser) displayed with a click and hold action, same as using the 'Trim' tool? ...more »

VCA control while recording

While "enable automation in record" was added in pro tools 11, VCA's still can't control the channels assigned to them if the channels are in record. From the PT 2018_1 Reference guide... "When a slave track is record-enabled (the Record Enable button is lit) or set to Input Only mode (the TrackInput button is lit), its automation is temporarily turned off, and its Volume fader is no longer affected by the VCA Master." ...more »
