The PT101 Course introduces you to the core principals needed to use Pro Tools. Regardless is you are a beginner, or seasoned user, this course lays the ground work for all things Pro Tools. You will learn how to build sessions, record audio and MIDI, use editing tools, keyboard shortcuts, signal flow concepts, mixing and automation concepts, and much more.

This PT110 course takes your Pro Tools knowledge to the next level. Building upon the foundations of 101, this course dives much deeper into workflow techniques, session management, even understanding audio hardware options. You'll learn advanced techniques used in recording, editing, mixing, and workflow shortcuts. This course is the next step of your continuing Pro Tools evolution. By completing the Avid Exams for this course, and the 101, you are eligible for your Pro Tools User Certification

After successfully completing both exams,101 and 110, you will gain the title of Avid Certified User. Whether you're a working audio industry professional, or an active student looking to begin their career, Pro Tools Certification is necessary in today's workforce. You can be sure to carry your knowledge into the future as the certificaiton is based on Pro Tools version, it doesn't expire.

From recording and editing, to signal-flow and mixing, Pro Tools Operator Certification give you the tools to progress your career in the audio industry. Our courses prepare you for these exams.

The Pro Tools PT201 course covers the fundamental skills and concepts needed to utilize and operate an Avid Pro Tools HD system in a professional production setting.

You will learn how to set up, configure, and utilize larger, more powerful Pro Tools HD Systems and Pro Tools Ultimate Software

The Pro Tools PT210 course allows you to focus on your primary interest, Music Production, or Post Production.

Sept 15, 2023: Avid has just announced exciting new features coming soon to Pro Tools: Built-In Noise Reduction with iZotope RX, and the integration of Dolby Atmos Renderer. There are also new features providing deeper interoperability between Media Composer (video editor) and Pro Tools, as well as showing off the new MTRX II audio interface. Let's take a look at what you can expect in the near future.

Several months after exploring its options, Avid Technology was sold to a tech focused private equity firm, STG for $1.4 billion. The good news is critics can finally squash flying rumors that a competitor like Apple is buying it. The newly purchased company is going to be held privately once more, allowing it to NOT have to operate based on appeasing shareholders’ demands. This is great news for Pro Tools Users and again reinforces that Pro Tools is the standard in the industry for commercial recording, editing and mixing.

Audio engineers often use Parallel Compression when mixing Rock and Pop songs. However it's a tool we can use when we’re tracking, mixing, and even in production. Whether it be used digitally in our DAW or Analog, Parallel Compression can help us add some oomph and presence to our initial recording and mixes while still maintaining the dynamics of the original recording. I use parallel compression when tracking in Production frequently. It's very useful to bring things forward in the mix and help tracks cut through.
