There is an Avid survey currently being undertaken. Perhaps you'd like to vent your frustration within that forum.

In the meantime I agree

To the OP...it's a wide-open marketplace, and if you have a better idea, and can write a better program, then by all means, let's see what you've got.

I can think of structure issues that weren't addressed personally (maybe b/c they knew they were gonna sell it)

Agreed although I've never used sonor

Agreed I think some feedback is essential, even if that includes melodrama. It's part and parcel

The issues with PT 11 are well known by AVID, documented and are not being fixed. They are probably happening to you if you use VIs. Is everything in sync??? Are you sure?

Check out this thread on PT 11 and how it can't automatically delay compensate auxilliary output stems.

http://duc.avid.com/showthread.php?t=350529

I wrote my post to warn others and to vent on the ineptitude of the builders of PT. If I released mixes as bad as their software writing I would not expect to be paid.

And so we all remain attached to PTs, even defending it.
Like calves suckling from a dead cows udder, we have not recognised that the milk is running cold.

Sincerely
Lachlan
Thank you. Yes I'm aware of the issues. I use VEP5 for all VIs. No issues whatsoever.

As for defending PT, I don't but in my business we all use it. And the studios are not going to change to another format/software.

I must be even dumber than I thought. I have had few if any problems with system functionality- and I came from Sonar X1.

Many of us learned to work that way (track everything to audio files as early as possible).

PT records the audio without the plugins affecting the print anyway, so there is nothing lost by turning off plugins while you do a bus record of the multi-out instrument plugin.

It is good practice to get those complex multi-out instruments recorded once correctly anyway since they are so quirky and generate different music each time they play sometimes. Just my humble opinion.
This doesn't help if you have a complex session and have to make a lot of changes for producers and directors. You have to keep the bulk of your work in midi until you know you're good with the people you're working for. I'm going through this right now.

I don't remember him saying you had to delete the VI Track. Make your changes and bounce again. Honestly, how often do you find that happening in every session? Once, twice, fifty, just curious. If it's really does happen a great deal in each and every session, then I would agree, our suggestion is effective, but could be a hassle. If it's 1-5 times per session, that's no big deal.

I'd like to balance this thread by saying PT11 has been amazing for me - I'm blown away with the performance boost going from PT10 TDM to PT11 native. It seems roughly 4X more powerful in terms of the juice required to run big sessions and lots of plugs...

Bugs suck and I hope they're fixed ASAP, but if they don't effect your workflow or you can work around them then it's a great DAW.
