Pro Tools bugs

Renumbering Memory Locations Selections causes them to recall in Ruler only

Seems to be a Mac-only bug. When invoking a Selection-type memory location, the selection shows up and the audio is highlighted (on the track in focus), as expected. But if you renumber the memory location and recall it, the in and out spots are marked on the ruler, but the audio or MIDI only the current track is not selected. Steps to reproduce: 1. Open a session containing at least one audio or MIDI track 2. Make a ...more »

Import tracks in inactive state

Please let us force imported track to come in as inactive tracks. In large film sessions when you add another 300 tracks to re-balance the reels it takes forever for HDX to do the DSP "optimisation" process. Would have to be able to import as inactive to avoid closing, reopening the source session deactivating there and then save and reopen the target session again and then import. Slows down a big mix a lot.

Direct DigiLink to DigiLink connections

32 channels from one system to another using just one cable. Would help to reduce system latencies. Seems logical now that DigiLink is an independent cost, that it should be undergoing independent development. This would seem to be the easiest extension of the protocol.

 

And if this were to be implemented, then maybe down the line we could get a multiport DigiLink switch...

9172/3 etc

9172. I WANT to subscribe and pay the $1K per year but I'm frozen at 12.5. I WILL buy it when Pro Tools works without crashing or me having to reset buffer, toggle delay comp 10+ times a day. Have used Pro Tools since when Digidesign was a sample edit app (80s). Then onto Sound Designer/Tools etc. A friend who's having the 9173 issues bought 18 and says it's worse. I think if there are plugins that are causing this problem ...more »

Multiple playlists for Markers

In different parts of production a project there is a need for different sets of markers. It would be nice to create different marker playlists much like there are for tracks. So if i make editing markers I can make a new blank marker lane for my mixing markers, but if I need to go back and reference my editing markers I can re-select the editing playlist and those markers will then become the current markers.

EuCon Softkey Programming - Copy/Paste Button Attributes

When programming soft keys in EuControl, please add a copy/paste option that will copy/paste all button attributes, including commands, label, icon, color, etc. When recreating existing buttons on User Pages, it is very time consuming and tedious to try to recreate the look and feel of buttons that are pre-programmed on other pages. For example, when recreating the Previous Playlist and Next Playlist buttons on a ...more »

RELINK WINDOW ADJUSTMENT

Ever since the relink window was introduced the size adjustment has been awkward. Always the first frame edge to be adjusted is the one below the "select area to search" because it never will show all the drives etc. needed for pointing to. Grabbing that lower frame edge results in its resize, BUT only to the edge of the next lower frame edge where it is forced to stop. So then that next lower one needs to be moved, before ...more »
