Continuing to build our chops for whipping around in the Edit window, in this tutorial I explain how to make and move Edit selections using key commands, tab and tab to transient. Before we can really dig into editing, you must know how to make a selection fit to edit, and this overview is a great place to learn some new techniques and dust off some of the modifiers used to manipulate the Edit selection.


Sometimes it's nice to learn cool tricks, even if they aren't incredibly useful just because they can be done. In this tutorial, we take a break from building the basic Pro Tools skills and I show a couple of tweaks you can make to the Mix window...okay, they are pretty useful, just not earth shattering. I'm sure more than a few of you know them already, but for those that don't enjoy.


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.
