AIR Instrument Expansion Pack AAX Lose Drag And Drop From Pro Tools

06-24-2013 12:52 PM

We were alerted yesterday to the possibility that both Tranfuser and Structure will lose drag and drop from the Pro Tools timeline in their AAX 64 bit versions.
We’ve done some checking on this and it is indeed the case that due to a limitation in the AAX SDK that this highly useful and unique feature in AIR plug-ins is no longer possible in Pro Tools 11.
A lot of users will see this as a retrograde step, choosing to use these instruments for that very workflow, as it set both Structure and Transfuser apart from alternatives.
It is an AAX limitation and not down to the AIR Music Tech team, we hope it’s technical and not simply an arbitrary decision - irrespective of why, it’s bad news!
