Avid, the makers of Pro Tools, have just released version 12.6.1. Heres what Avid put in the release notes:

 

HD Driver

Updated Core Audio Driver for HD systems

  • Pro Tools 12.6.1 includes a newly made HD Driver that is adapted to the significant changes made in Mac OS starting with OS X 10.10. This new driver restores Core Audio support and is included with Pro Tools HD 12.6.1.

Bug Fixes

MIDI Delay Compensation

  • MIDI notes are no longer recorded late by the delay compensation value (PT-220861)

Breakpoint Editing

  • Grid Toggle is disabled when adjusting automation, MIDI, or Clip Gain breakpoint controls in Slip Mode to avoid conflict with fine-control editing (PT-221294)
  • Pressing the Command key (Mac) or Control key (Windows) while editing automation and MIDI breakpoints now suppresses Grid mode and enables fine-control editing. This is now consistent with breakpoint editing behavior for Clip Gain. Fine-control editing can be disengaged during mouse-down by releasing the Command key (Mac) or Control key (Windows), and then re-engaged by pressing the Command key (Mac) or Control key (Windows) again (PT-221952)
  • Using the Smart Tool to add a breakpoint on a Clip Gain line no longer incorrectly constrains the breakpoint to the nearest grid line (PT-221919)
  • Fixed multiple automation breakpoint editing inconsistencies with Grabber Tool (PT-221862)

Editing

  • The Tandem Trimming option (introduced in Pro Tools 12.6) has been removed from the Options menu. Tandem Trimming is only available using key modifiers: Command-Control-click (Mac) or Control-Start-click (windows) with the Trim tool. Note that TCE and Elastic trim do not support Tandem Trimming.
  • Fade length settings from the batch fades dialog are now used when pressing the single-key “f” command to create fades (PT-218064)
  • Fixed a case where clip groups from created before 12.6 were broken when opening the session (PT-221888)
  • Audiosuite rendering with Clip by Clip and Create Individual Files settings no longer alters clip lengths unexpectedly (PT-216026)
  • With a selection across Audio and Instrument tracks, nudge no longer fails to move audio clips within the selection (PT-221115)
  • The Heal Separation command no longer includes adjacent clips that are not selected in some cases while using Layered Editing (PT-221928)
  • The nudge command no longer fails to move selected MIDI notes while using Layered Editing (PT-221116)
  • Deleting a fade out that is also an overlap of another clip no longer deletes the underlapping clip (PT-221271)
  • Edit/Timeline Selection is no longer lost when copying a selection within a clip to a new playlist (PT-221270)
  • Moving a fade on one clip that overlaps another no longer trims the underlapping clip (PT-221450)
  • While using the respective “Send Fully Overlapped Clips…” preference for editing, clips that are fully overlapped by nudging another clip over it no longer fail to be sent to a new playlist (PT-221274)
  • Fixed a case where Analysis markers would not be displayed on part of an underlapped clip when switching to Warp track view (PT-221672)

Automation and Mixing

  • Fixed a case where soloing and unsoloing tracks could cause AAE error -9155 “Automation is too dense.” (PT-220691)
  • Previously written front-to-back pan automation now plays back correctly while previewing front left/right automation moves (PT-221130)
  • Engaing a VCA solo no longer fails to change the state of solos on tracks in the underlying group (PT-222010)
  • Emphasis has been added to the dialog warning users about writing automation to the entire timeline (PT-221890)
  • Fixed a case where newly created VCAs could not be record enabled on the S6 Master Post Module (PT-221664)

Crashes and Errors (Please continue to submit crash logs!)

  • Fixed cases where certain sessions created before 12.6 would throw an assertion error when opening or crash when attempting to Import Session Data (PT-221127)
  • Fixed a case where entering track comments could cause a crash on Windows 8 and Windows 10 only (PT-218721)
  • Fixed a case where deleting a VCA track with a D-Control connected to Pro Tools could cause a crash (PT-221285)
  • Fixed a case where deleting complex multi-selections of clips and clip groups across multiple tracks could cause a crash (PT-221288)
  • Fixed a case where dragging and dropping a MIDI file to a MIDI Instrument track caused a crash (PT-222247)
  • Fixed a case where unchecking “Ignore Errors” in the playback engine could cause a crash with some 3rd party audio interfaces (PT-209601)
  • Fixed a case where undoing immediately or sometime after using the keyboard shortcut to switch playlists would cause a crash (PT-221780)

Video

  • Fixed a case where frames would be dropped at the beginning of playback with newer BlackMagic video cards (PT-221056)

Workspace

  • Workspace searches of mapped network volumes no longer fail to find files as expected (PT-211720)

  • When going offline and back online, collaboration features no longer fail to reactivate (PT-221749)
