You either love it, or your hate it - yes, I'm talking about the Smart Tool in Pro Tools. I've seen some absolutely fly around Pro Tools using it without having to mess with memorizing key commands or return trips to the toolbar with the mouse, while others pound on the desk in frustration trying to figure out which tool in the Smart Tool lottery they are going to end up with next. In this tutorial, I demystify the Smart Tool and tell you how to work with it...well, smartly.


   

One of the most important skills to learn when you're new to Pro Tools, is how to navigate the session. In this tutorial I share my favorite methods for zooming in the Edit window. Too many times I've seen end-users 'work around' the current zoom level (whatever it happens be), rather than adjust the zoom level so it works for them. It's difficult to make a precise edit or orient yourself to where you're in the session, if you don't know how to zoom in and out.


 

Whether you run Pro Tools on a slower or a faster computer, you should know how to get the most out of your system. In this tutorial I give you the low-down on the settings available in the Playback Engine. I explain how I set it up for each phase of my session, from tracking to editing and mixing, so that I leverage lower latency/higher CPU performance vs. higher latency/lower CPU performance at the right time. Understanding how to manager your resources in Pro Tools is a must for every end-user.
