Avid Release Pro Tools 12.7.1 Stability Update



Avid have announced Pro Tools 12.7.1 is now available. This new update is a "stability release" and includes several performance improvements. Check out the full list of the fixes in Pro Tools 12.7.1.



Editing


  • Deleting automation on a frozen track no longer deletes underlying clips as well
  • Clearing a time selection that begins before a fade out within a clip and ends outside of the clip, after the fade, no longer fails to clear the fade out as a part of operation
  • UI stuttering in the edit window no longer occurs when adjusting clip gain 
  • Fixed a case where the new playlist created by an overlap made while a track is in Waveform track view would be created in the wrong playlist order 
  • Restored the behavior of Insertion Follows Playback during Pre-Roll that existed prior to Pro Tools 12.6. The insertion point is once again placed where the play head stops during the pre-roll 
  • Fixed a case where multi-channel clip groups would break if they were dragged over an Aux, Master, or VCA track


Clip Effects


  • Fixed a case where applying cursor focus to the Clip Effects view could lock out keyboard input 
  • Fixed a case where focus was not correctly restored to the Clip Effects view after switching between Pro Tools and another app
  • Using the keyboard shortcut to access the Clip Effects view no longer incorrectly focuses a field in a text entry state


Automation


  • Fixed a case where automation could be deleted without warning when changing the width of a track's main output
  • Fixed a case where MIDI CC automation would not be played back correctly until reaching a new break point
  • Unexpected automation ramps no longer occur intermittently when using the Punch Preview command after the Back and Play command
  • Fixed cases where -9155 Automation Too Dense Errors would be thrown by sawtooth-like automation within a very small number of samples
  • Fixed a case where track volume settings (volume levels without written automation) between +6db and +12db would be received as +6db by collaborators in a collaboration


Soundbase and Workspace


  • Files auditioned in the workspace while the conform to session tempo setting is enabled are now correctly delay compensated according to the current system delay
  • Relinking and indexing of files that are more than 6 or 7 folders deep no longer fails
  • Copy and Relink performance for operations containing more than 2000 files is significantly improved
  • The Tags pane in soundbase no longer fails to update dynamically when removing and returning a folder with audio to the Sound Libraries location
  • Fixed a case where the contents of the Sound Libraries location may not be indexed properly after being renamed and then renamed again to "Sound Libraries"
  • Fixed a case where the clip outline drawn to show placement of a file dragged from the Workspace browser would appear on the wrong track if there are hidden tracks in the document
  • Fixed a specific UI glitch that could occur when dragging and dropping audio files to the Edit Window while using a Windows OS
  • Fixed several tagging issues in Soundbase that could occur while using non-English language characters
  • Fixed several minor UI and selection issues within the Workspace browser 


Crashes and Errors 


  • Fixed a crash that could occur when starting playback shortly after any use of the audition path, particularly following an AudioSuite audition and render
  • Fixed a crash that could occur when playing a stereo clip that had been created by combining two mono clips if one of the mono clips had a crossfade
  • Fixed a crash that could occur when pasting a clip group of six mono clips with individual edits into a 5.1 track
  • Fixed a crash that occur during session open if the video engine needed to be enabled and then the session open operation was cancelled 


Miscellaneous 


  • Fixed an issue where projects created in previous versions of Pro Tools may not download in newer versions of Pro Tools
  • The Hardware Setup window is no longer launched unexpectedly after updating the HD Driver without first uninstalling the previous HD Driver version
  • Fixed a momentary parameter value ramp up that would occur in the Channel Strip plug-in on C, Lss, Rss, Lsr, Rsr and LFE channels of surround instances immediately after any offline processing task completed

Studio Tour : Emmy Winner Paula Fairfield's Dolby Atmos Studio

Emmy Award Winning Sound Designer Paula Fairfield is most famous for her work on the hit HBO show, “Game Of Thrones". She’s the sound designer that gives the dragons their voice, and every roar, flap or hiss coming from one of Daenerys’ three dragons is created in the studio she built in her desert home near Palm Springs.

The heart of Paula’s studio is the Avid Pro Tools S6 control surface and Colin Broad PD3 / A-Mon monitoring system that controls her HDX system. For Dolby Atmos monitoring, RSPE incorporated a JBL LSR system housed in the ASC AttackWall for Immersive Sound. The ASC AttackWall provides an optimum mixing environment that's portable and modular and translates every time.
