Is there a way to "play lock" ProTools?

I have ProTools' mixer open so I can route from Logic into it and use TDM plugins. I don't want to accidentally hit play in ProTools. Is there a way to lock the play function, so I only have the mixer passing audio, but it won't let me play?

hey michael .. long time no see ..

i don't know of a way to play-lock protools. About the only thing
i can think of is to make a selection of one sample .. so, on the
off chance someone did hit play, it would only be for one sample.
Not ideal. I thought maybe a combination of MTC sync and/or
"wait for note" might work, but it didn't.

The other thing that might work is to use the "I" monitoring button on
the tracks you're patched through and mute all the others (if there
are any audio tracks that you're not patched through). So that way,
you're going to get a flow through inputs to outputs regardless of
playback.

Rather than playing when you don't want to, Digi has implemented
the "won't play when you want it to" feature instead :-)

wish I could be more help,
jeff

Yea, as long "Insertion Follows Playback" is off ...

A good "stump the intern" trick ;-) .. not that I've ever done
that.
