Default Re: In what area is Pro Tools REALLY lacking??

I didn't know PT didn't do this. Every other DAW I've worked with has done it for, oh, 15-20 years or so. Seems fundamental.

I’m sure. Just a bit confused as I don’t remember seeing anyone really demanding it before...otherwise I’m sure it would have been delivered before now...?

For me the frustration is when I hit solo on something that's not muted, but going through a bus that I haven't made solo safe, and still don't hear anything.

In large post prod sessions, sometimes I want to solo an entire bus (eg FX), sometimes just an element inside that bus (eg swords). PT being a little more clever about that would be very useful.

Sorry if you already know about this, but this is exactly what AFL and PFL Solo modes are for. Many people (myself included for a very long time) don't understand AFL and PFL solo modes. Pro Tools works just like analog consoles which also have AFL, PFL and Solo In Place. I think it would be bad for Pro Tools to stray what Analog consoles are doing.

AFL and PFL do need to be set-up for their outputs in IO settings, but then you can solo anywhere (including effects busses etc) and you will hear exactly what is going through those busses because it won't mute the other tracks.
