Using Virtual Instruments In Pro Tools

This Avid tutorial Video demonstrates using Virtual Instruments in music production to create parts such as Basslines and Synth Parts. This is the 2nd Episode in the "Master the Art of Music" series by Avid Application specialist, Greg Chin. Here Greg illustrates effective workflow techniques to get basslines and synth parts going, using Vacuum and Xpand!2.

Manipulating MIDI with Real Time Properties

This episode also demonstrates how easy it is to create and manipulate MIDI clips, as well as utilizing the extended features in Real Time Properties available that work non-destructively. Remember, this feature is unique to Pro Tools. Being able to quickly test and try different quantization, note duration, velocity, or even transposition values on the fly, without necessarily committing them to the clip can really help speed up production. Greg suggests playing with Real Time Properties. According to Greg, "There’s no commitment and you never lose your original performance!"

Quantization in Real Time Properties

This video also addresses quantization values in Real Time Properties. For those users used to using swing values from other DAWs or music creation hardware: If you click on the quantize value button in Real Time Properties and look towards the bottom of the menu, you’ll see some of the most common swing values from other music creation platforms such as Cubase, Logic, and even the classic Akai MPC groove swing values are there.

Don’t forget to download a copy of the session to experiment with!
