In Pro Tools, I can add a new playlist to a single track using the track's Playlist menu: alt text

And if I hold down option it will create a new playlist for all tracks in the session.

How do I create a new playlist just in the selected tracks? Or, as an alternative, for all tracks in a group?

If you hold down Shift+Alt it serves as an "apply to all selected" Same for solos, comping, applying inserts, sends, etc.

  • After adapting this to Shift+Opt for Mac, worked like a charm.

If I understand you right, I think you just need to group the tracks, make sure the group is enabled, and then make a new playlist as usual.

  • Does it matter if it's a Mix group vs an Edit group?
