Default Bug: Folder Open/Close During Recording [SOLVED]

Opening and closing of folders from within the DAW seems to impossible when the transport is in record. However, it is possible to open and close folders from the Avid Control app, when the transport is in record. Is this a bug?

I would understand if any folders that have record armed tracks were locked out in terms of opening and closing during recording, although I'd prefer if Basic Folders acted like VCAs including the ability to record or input enable all member tracks. But, locking out all opening and closing of folders that do not contain record armed tracks is a bit of a deal breaker.

If I start laying back a feature length show and want to adjust an edit or crossfade on a track in a closed folder, I have to stop laying back in order to open that folder, then punch in again? That makes no sense.

EDIT: It seems that opening and closing a folder that contains actively recording tracks from the Control App works fine and doesn't interrupt recording. But, closing a folder that contains record armed tracks when the transport is stopped disarms the tracks. This is very inconsistent behavior and needs to be fixed.

Default Re: Bug: Folder Open/Close During Recording [SOLVED?]

I received a reply from Eddie Jones on the Avid Control Surface Users facebook group that this was intentional in the Avid Control app and will not be removed. So I'll consider this "bug" closed for now. It would be really helpful to have this behavior added to Pro Tools as well. It is a necessity for long-form re-recording workflows.

Default Re: Bug: Folder Open/Close During Recording [SOLVED]

Also still struggling to see sense in why you cannot currently open/close folders whilst recording?
This surely has to be something Avid need to fix?

I'm using basic folders to keep my sessions tidy, but let's say I've got all my drums recorded & in a folder that's closed, & I'm recording some bass overdubs, if I want to open the drum folder to make adjustments to any of my drum tracks, whether it be fader volume, solo, mute, or adjust plugins or sends etc - I can't? I have to stop recording altogether to then go in, open the drum folder & make my adjustments. This can't be right??
