In this video Pro Tools Expert team member Dan Cooper tests two of the new features in Pro Tools 12.6.
Pro Tools users can now manipulate the shape of fade curves using the Smart Tool. This new features makes light work of getting fades just right in the edit window, although it would be great to add and fade and change the shape all within one click of the mouse suppose to two.
Gone are the days of disappearing clips when tracking and editing. Clips are now automatically added to a new playlist if recorded over. This is a feature I have absolutely loved in other DAWs and I am so pleased to now have this in Pro Tools. The new keyboard shortcut is also a really nice touch - shift up & shift down to toggle between playlists. I have never been a big fan of Pro Tools playlists up until now. The playlist improvements are going to speed my workflow dramatically.
