Creating audio loops is one of the most fundamental editing features used in production. Going all the way back to tape based recording, we have had to take a section of audio and repeat it. Whether it's in a song with drum loops, or in post production with soundfx, you will have a need to quickly create loops. In this video we show you how easy it is to create audio loops in Pro Tools.

Have you ever accidently recorded over your previous takes because you forgot to disengage the record button on your prior track? I think we all know how easy of a mistake this is to make. With the latest release of Pro Tools there are some helpful new features that can prevent that from happening. Especially if you're recording yourself, as many of us are, you will find the new Record Enable Latch features super helpful in your workflow.
