Tutorial: Pro Tools LE 8 Basics - Part 1

Session window and track types      24/11/09

No flash plug


5:15 mins

For many years, Pro Tools was seen as the professionals choice for tracking and mixing. For composing and MIDI arrangements, people looked elsewhere  - to Logic, Cubase,  Reason, Ableton or Cakewalk's Sonar.

However since the introduction Pro Tools 8, MIDI and virtual instruments have come to the fore in the Pro Tools workspace, making it much more of a usable compositional environment.

In addition, the proliferation of new, lower cost Pro Tools LE and M-Powered systems also has meant more musicians than ever have access to these new features -  so we figured it would be a Good Thing to do a series on Pro Tools LE.

And so, here is Mr Steve Evans - a seriously qualified producer, who's daily workflow uses Pro Tools for music production, music for TV and songwriting duties to guide us through our series Discovering Pro Tools LE 8.

Episode One
- takes a look at the basic session layout and track types.

Coming in episode 2 - Virtual Instruments and MIDI

Hmm, sounds like you may be hyper sensitive to that, I edited the whole series and was not especially conscious of that at the time.q

I quite liked the no nonsense approach to the tutorial!

I'm an Ableton user and have heard that the audio engine in Pro Tool is superior?

Thanks for the quality vid guys!
