The ability to automate plugins is one of the most powerful features in Pro Tools. Regardless of what type of plugin you're using, you can apply automation changes to every parameter of a plugin. This ability is utilized across the audio landscape, from song creation and music production, film and video post production, radio broadcast, as well as podcast production. This tutorial video shows you how easy it is to start using plugin automation in Pro Tools. These skills are also taught in great detail in our monthly live Pro Tools Certification Courses.

We at ProMedia Training, are proud to have been a part of filming this great feature segment released Jan 3, 2021 on CBS Sunday Morning, for Barry Gibb's new album, Greenfields, and new HBO documentary! Our Director of Training, Mihai Boloni was brought in to help make it happen on a few days notice. We want to thank Sir Barry, and Stephen Gibb for the opportunity.
