We look at the most popular Pro Tools feature requests, and explain how you can adapt where they haven’t yet been implemented.

Back in August 2009, Avid launched the Pro Tools Ideascale web site at http://protools.ideascale.com to act as a public clearing house for user feedback, bug reports and new feature ideas. The idea is that users can make feature requests which are then voted on by other users, allowing Avid to see what people want included in future versions. Whilst visiting the Pro Tools Ideascale site recently, I looked at the top 20 feature requests and was surprised by how many were yet to be implemented.
