Add Track Count Statistics

In working with Pro Tools, we usually rely on receiving an error when you are monitoring how many tracks you have already used for the session. We can always count the tracks manually, but that does not work well when you are almost at the track count limits. To alleviate this, I propose that there be a Track Count statistics window, where the following information can be seen: "Current Track Count (Maximum Track Count ...more »

On OMF Import - Main Volume Automation turned off, by default

Starting with Pro Tools 2018 (and continuing through past few updates), I noticed that OMF imports were not including volume automation by default, even though the "Import Volume Automation" radio button is checked.

Renaming Clip and Disk File

Please, Avid, I'm so tired of having to click OK in the dialog box when I'm renaming 384 files. In PT8 we could hold down the enter key and it would cycle each one. Please bring this back, or even the ability to "Option-Click OK to name all". We rename THOUSANDS of files per day, and this would make our workflow so much better (and so much quieter). To reproduce: Record hundreds of separate dialog files. Command-A ...more »
