Pro Tools doesn't scale correctly in Windows. For this reason, its interface is rendered very poorly on high DPI screens. Even experimenting with Windows' high DPI settings, there are several glitchy configurations and only one configuration that makes the interface usable. I provide two screenshots which explain the problems experienced with 200% scaling on a 4K display. They show Pro Tools 2018.4 (current version ...more »
From time to time, Pro Tools hangs and stops responding when the transport is stopped and put in playback straight after. Unfortunately I don't know how to reproduce this bug; it happens quite randomly, irregularly and it's not frequent (from once every two days to once-twice a day). Apparently, it happens only when hitting stop and play quickly. I'm experiencing it since quite a long time ago, on Pro Tools 12.8, 2018.1 ...more »
When right-clicking a track name, these commands could be added to the context menu:
- "Add to group >" to assign one or more selected tracks to a group (eg. to join a newly-created track with an existing group);
- "Remove from groups >" to remove them from any group they belong to. Only currently assigned groups would be shown here.
Add a plug-in manager with basic plug-in data such as category (EQ, Dynamics etc.), supported channel widths (mono, stereo, 5.1 etc.), manufacturer and version, with these features: 1. enable/disable plug-in load at Pro Tools startup; 2. add/remove plug-in from favourite list (each channel width should have its separate favourite list); 3. add/remove custom plug-in categories (default categories would remain uneditable); ...more »
When partially selecting and clearing two overlapped clips and the first one contains a fade out (which is entirely covered by the selection), an unexpected result occurs.
The bug is occurring on Pro Tools 2018.1 and can be reproduced with 100% success. Please see the attached pdf for further details.
I am running it on Windows 10 version 1709.
Clips of a frozen track go offline in an apparently random fashion, without any reason. The clips are not properly offline since the frozen clip name disappears at all, there are not reported offline media and it's impossible to relink them. The only solution is to unfreeze and freeze the track again. I don't know how to reproduce the problem, but it's been happening only on freezed Instrument tracks (it never happened ...more »
It would be useful having the possibility to set Disk cache size and HW Buffer size before opening or creating a session by adding two drop-down menus in the Dashboard window. Currently (as of PT 2018.1) Cache size and Buffer size are not saved and recalled with the session; the last used values are set. The drop-down menus could simply show the last used settings so that the user can check them and change them if necessary. ...more »
Improve easy-of-use when moving or copying a plug-in from a track to another with a different number of channels: - if the destination track have fewer channels, automatically convert the plug-in format, for example: - when moving from a stereo to a mono track, convert "multichannel" to "mono" or "multi-mono" to "mono" (in this case keep Left settings, drop right settings -- or even ask which channel settings to keep) ...more »
Add these options when right-clicking a track or a selection of multiple tracks:
- Add to Group > [show group list, highlighting groups already assigned to the track(s)];
- Remove from Group > [show groups currently assigned to this track] – this is greyed out if the track(s) hasn't been assigned to any group.
The video window occasionally goes on background if it's resized. The only workaround to make it appear again is unmaximizing the Pro Tools main window, moving it until the video appears behind, clicking on the video to bring it back on top, and then maximizing the Pro Tools main window again.
Add this option in Preferences: "Save and recall session-related playback engine settings" so that session-related engine settings such as Disk cache size, Video engine enable/disable are loaded and saved as a session-specific setting. More general or unrelated settings such as Playback device, Ignore errors during playback/record, Dynamic plug-in processing would not be loaded. This would help since: - the optimal ...more »
Several marker lanes would be very useful to organize and discern different sets and type of markers. A specific marker lane (like the "arrangement track" in Logic) can be used to delimitate song sections (verse, chorus, bridge, etc) and can have specific characteristics: markers in this lane should be contiguous time ranges and their boundaries should be draggable; they should be renamed by double-clicking the range. ...more »
