Pro Tools 11Several months ago, Avid announced the release of Pro Tools 11 to much fanfare and hype. If you saw the official Avid release video, you got the impression that we were about to see the next big thing. Has it lived up to that kind of hype? In a word, Yes!

The type of changes that were made directly impact anyone working on audio projects for music or tv/film, and most users will see a significant change in workflow to take advantage of these new features.

It turns out there’s a lot more to the latest version of Pro Tools than we first thought. Sure, it’s nice to have 64-Bit Processing, a new Avid Audio & Video Engine, along with a host of other improvements. I’m sure you are asking, “how is this going to improve my work?”. Let’s take a look at what we’ve discovered so far about Pro Tools 11.

How many of you want to share your studio work with other people?

As we start expanding the scope of our work, each of us will find ourselves at some point needing to share work across other DAW software or sessions such as Logic, Nuendo, Studio One, etc. There are many reasons you might share your projects, such as working with collaborators, sending your song to a mix engineer, or having to integrate your work with other material, such as a video. For whatever the reason, the transfer of information between platforms is happening at a fast and furious pace and understanding some basic procedures will make things flow a lot smoother for you.

Mihai Boloni and Kevin ElsonLet’s first look at some of the scenarios you might encounter in the course of working on a session. You have a partner or group of people you collaborate with and they are using different DAW’s in their own studio. The keyboard player might be using Logic, the drummer might be using Pro Tools, and the Singer/Guitar player is using Nuendo. You will have to put all these different pieces together in order to give them to the Mix Engineer who might be using Pro Tools. This type of thing is very common in the musical landscape. Another scenario might involve transferring material between video editing systems such as Media Composer, Final Cut Pro, Premier, back and forth to Pro Tools so you can do the Audio Post Production. Each of these situations might require a slightly different workflow, but in the end the same goal is being accomplished - sharing information across different platforms.


 

Being an Avid educator, the long anticipation and months spent on web gossip sites has all come to reality now regarding the new release of Avid Pro Tools 11. There are many new features in Pro Tools 11 that will be released upon us, and what a beast it is.


 

Steven TylerSteven Tyler to Take Part in Keynote Interview at ASCAP EXPO

WHEN: ASCAP Expo Event Los Angeles April 18th – 20th, 2013
WHERE: Loews Hollywood Hotel, Los Angeles, CA

ProMedia Training will be attending as a sponsor and exhibitor at the ASCAP 2013 event this year, so we look forward to meeting our potential students and associates there. Co-founder of ProMedia Training, David Frangioni, will plan to attend event and share some of his early stories of breaking into the music industry as a pro tools editor and engineer for Steven Tyler in the 90’s, which led to becoming an established and recognized technology expert for multiple renown recording artists.


   

Mike Bernard of The VoiceMichael Bernard is the Pro Tools Engineer, Music, and Sound Editor on the hit NBC TV show, "The Voice.” Join us now for this VIDEO BELOW for a one-on-one interview conducted by Mihai Boloni, Director of Expert Avid Training at ProMedia. Whether having to record and edit for over 600 songs per season, or punching in live while 12 million people are watching, the pressure is on and the workload is immense for Mike Bernard, the Band and brilliant Musical Director, Paul Mirkovich. ProMedia Training was brought in to consult and train on how to maximize this massive workflow after Paul Mirkovich wanted to maximize productivity to the fullest possible extent. The talent it takes to arrange and produce this volume of music is incredible on behalf of Paul, Michael, the crew, and the rest of the musical team.


 

Amongst the myriad of features relating to editing and recording is a very powerful tool known as Elastic Audio. This feature gives us the ability to treat our audio as if it were a rubber band, hence the name, Elastic Audio.


 

Recently, fellow Pro Tools Instructor Dan Faber and I had the pleasure of working with legendary music songwriter/ producer Mark Hudson (Aerosmith, Celine Dion, Ringo Starr, Ozzy, Cher) on a truly wonderful and challenging recording session at Studio Center Miami. Within a few days, we had over 26 guitar tracks and 20 background vocal tracks alone; we were soon at 116 tracks!
