Video: Recording Techniques In Pro Tools

From keyboard shortcuts, to Playlist editing, and Loop Recording, watch as we cover these topics in our Pro Tools Training Class.

The ability to re-record and re-edit a part, while keeping the previous takes, has allowed us to experiment and edit in ways never possible with "tape-based" recording. One of the first practical applications of playlists is the ability to record multiple passes, while never losing access to each previous recording. No longer were musicians and producers locked into using the singular take on the tape. Multiple variations of each track could be recalled at any time, or could even be combined together into an entirely new performance. From a creative point of view, this allows for greater flexibility and experimentation without the fear of losing, or undoing, and previous ideas. Let's take a look at how you can use Playlists in your own workflow. Keep in mind that although I'll be referencing Vocals for my explanation, you can do with with any audio track.
