smart bounce will be very cool :0 BUT… let's say <in theory i'll check it tommorow> i can check how many regions or localization markers is on one track >;D i would like to automatically run macro several times without manual clicking <like macro auto clicker with counting> is it possible it will be very useful for adr recordings dialog editing vo editing and it'll put PT to astronomical level!! as well copying and pasting from spread sheet with regular expression will be cool
thanks for all the great ideas.. very cool stuff.. If you know how many regions are on the track then you can use the "Repeat" function to launch the BC as many times as needed.. Here is a video for how to copy data from a Text document and paste in a region..

i still have problem with repeating command sequence :/ i created list of command and save it to "user" quick list but after loading i steal see list of actions instead one action line with my quick list preset and repeat it 12K times..... is it any option to do this ? or how to consolidate action list to action group

Hi Astaroth, When creating your own Batch Commands they will show up as a list of all of the quick list items and key commands. Once hitting save "above the confirm button" The list is saved in the users tab. You can load it into other buttons from there. Consolidating it to one item is not an option at the moment. We choose to leave it open so in the future you can customize and add to these batch commands, instead of starting from scratch if you would like to make a similar one.

yes i was compare in Xcode syntax of severals quick list commands with severals my batch commands and conclusion was that the only differences between them is hdd location <excluding content…> so i simply copy my batch to "quick list pt10 general" location… maybe it's very simple hack but it works very well and it open new doors… please DO NOT remove this back door solution <if you will it will be 1000000 steps forward … >or please simply add button to save it as "user general" and "user" preset…. i test my macro on 1.6k repeats… it works
ps.. i found solution to find how many tracks/ regions/ events….. is in pt session… it was so !@#$%^& simple… just use export as text option…and check syntax…. if BCM will get regular expression update it will be unlimited tool …
p.s.2. You will need to wait for video approximately 4-5 days i've got days off….
yes yes yes yes!!!!! i have go to previous / next marker buttons in my pt9 loser edition... i'm creating complete voice over remastering command chain excluding region edition, i'll share my macros soon unfortunately i need to use 2 third party apps but it works!!!!!
i've got : auto memory location with region names auto gaps between regions <with optional beeps> auto volume automation <part of my workflow> go to previous / next memory location <will be use later>
i'm working on : auto selecting regions between memory locations auto online bounce to disc with naming <i'm waiting for BCM update with "wait till end" function>
general macros assumption: - you can't make vo without listening - i want to sleep - i want to eat sometimes...
- cleaning and editing regions during work day - do not consolidate regions inside protools !! - click one button and go play with family - online bouncing during night - be happy next morning....
go to next memory location tests... youtu.be/wepCV7PaMxU i know it's slow but it doesn't matter for me it will be work at night..

very cool stuff, I love the instant volume automation with a BC, i made a little video of that a while back.. www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZCYoJKmfqmI I even have it doing it to auxes below or above.. basically uses.
1. Clip gain "SHIFT,CNTRL,UP" 2. Convert Clip gain to volume automation. 3. Cut Volume automation "CMND X" 4. Move to aux track above 5. paste automation "CMND V"
for going to next memory location, if you click up on the the marker track/timeline and use "Tab" it will move to the next marker.. If you want to highlight in-between markers use "Shift Tab"
But however you are doing it seems pretty cool...
Region name to Memory Location marker is very nice.. For that I usually use
1. CMND SHIFT R 2. CMND C 3. ESCAPE 4. ENTER 5. CMND V 6. TAB 7. Number for Marker 8 Enter

Hi! THX for tips but in Your option You need to make manual click on memory location bar … and selecting region between memory locations select all timeline between it… i'm still on PT9 LE so i don't have clip gain, to automatic volume i use plugin
i don't like to consolidate edited vo so in my macro i've got not all timeline selection between memory location but selection from beginning of first region after locator to last region before next memory locator + define extra time to give time to all analog and digital processors in audio chain to relies smoothly … without clicking…. basic assumption is to click macro button go home and next morning have all files <800??> bounced to disc with correct names wish me luck…

Is this 'backdoor' hack still possible in ver2.5? I cannot seem to find this folder. Do you mean:
users>(username)>Library>Application Support>Slate Media Technology>Raven Mti>Batch>Pro Tools>Single>PT10?
This is where it seems only my user Quicklists saves are already automatically saved (the ones I hit save on manually).
To be clear what I am trying to do is similar to Astaroth was. I have made a BC macro that is 3 commands long. I want to save that as one command that I can then import into a new hotkey & hit repeat as many times as I want. Surely that must be possible? At the moment, I am manually duplicating these 3 events over and over (300 events for 100 repeats!)- which is not ideal.
When I do this- & I select my macro from the quick list in a new button- it just imports those 3 events again - as opposed to being nested inside of one new command- as per some of the Factory preset batch commands that come with BC.

Ah I see- cheers God, I mean JameyZ.
Wow- that was super not-obvious- especially since I was showing package contents within package contents- starting with the Raven app itself- (at first I was like- which BC app..)
Rad now though- glad I got that one sussed.
Just a thought- why would you not want this behaviour? If it's a quick link- I should be able to just drag any of my user presets into buttons the same way. I think you need an option for nested quick link or full link- personally. That would eradicate the need for backdooring this.
Whilst I have you- am I supposed to be able to type values into delay & repeat fields? This has got to be the stickiest UI I have come across in a long time. The only way I can change the values is by typing the number into e.g. textedit & copying so that I can paste it into the fields. And buggy too- if I past 100 over 1- it becomes 1001- er…. no.
And I'm not going to mention how many times it crashed on me whilst programming my macros. Had to start over a good 10 times.
All good though now. Seems way less likely to crash when not trying to program it.
Really cool too that I don't have to have to sacrifice my controller situation either by leaving all the HUI nonsense switched off for the Raven- and it still works- I didn't realise that. That may be worth mentioning in the marketing of the Mti- as many assume it's only HUI or nothing.
Oh one last question too- how does one stop a macro? I try to hit the button again but it just repeats the macro. I see the button says STOP for a split second after hitting it the first time.
