The Pro Tools Fundamentals II (PT110) course expands upon the basic principles taught in the Pro Tools Fundamentals I (PT101) course and introduces the core concepts and techniques students need to competently operate a Pro Tools system running mid-sized sessions.
Students learn to build sessions designed for commercial purposes and improve the results of their recording, editing, and mixing efforts. The hands-on exercises provide experience setting up sessions, importing media, working with digital video, spotting sound effects, using loop recording and MIDI Merge techniques, working with virtual instruments, warping with Elastic Audio, applying Real-Time Properties, creating clip loops, applying signal processing, using automation, and using submixes and track groups to simplify a final mix.
Ability to create sessions, select appropriate session parameters, record audio and MIDI, use Edit modes and tools effectively, set Grid and Nudge values, create and recall memory locations, navigate tracks and media, create Edit selections using a variety of common techniques, use plug-ins for signal processing and virtual instruments, create a basic mix, and use basic automation techniques
At the end of this course you will be able to:
Manage large track counts and multiple channels of simultaneous inputs and outputs
Create appropriate Pro Tools software and hardware settings
Select appropriate settings in the Playback Engine dialog
Set up and modify input/output (I/O) settings
Assess and integrate virtual instruments and specialized plug-ins for specific music and
Utilize advanced recording techniques to capture multiple record takes in succession
Analyze Elastic Audio processors and methods to select appropriate options
Utilize Elastic Audio techniques MIDI Real-Time Properties to achieve desired tempo and/or rhythmic effects and outcomes
Apply clip-based editing techniques to audio and MIDI tracks
Incorporate automated mixing techniques into a Pro Tools workflow for selective during a session post-production tasks automation
