Welcome to a live, *blazing* fast introduction to the Pro Tools interface, complete with hidden shortcuts, secret speed techniques, and no small amount of raised voices.
Lots of engineers have a deep history with Pro Tools. It is the US standard for DAWs.
And yet, many have never moved past mousing around…often tripling or quadrupling the amount of time it takes to accomplish routine tasks in the software.
In this 1 hour video you’ll experience a live, totally unscripted overview of the Pro Tools interface, chock full of shortcuts, mnemonics for increasing your speed on both Mac and Windows, and some truly useless jokes. But, by golly you’ll be faster than you currently are…likely saving the cost of this video in your first studio session thereafter.
Regardless of whether you’re an experienced engineer, or a total novice to Pro Tools, if you survive this one hour video intero, you’ll find your speed significantly enhanced, and be relaxing on your back deck before you can say “Smart Tool”.
Seriously. You’ll experience
- The secret of the Alt (ALL) Key
- Hidden Navigation shortcuts
- Banishing the Shuffle Mode!
- Pro Tools “Hidden” Tools
- Mad skills use Tab, In & Out points for editing
- and much more!
