Avid’s Pro Tools software has become the undisputed recording and mixing industry standard for digital audio production. It provides a comprehensive and powerful environment for audio recording, MIDI sequencing, editing, and “in-the-box” mixing. This introduction will jumpstart your Pro Tools engineering and music production chops, covering a full range of basic as well as advanced tools and techniques in a single semester. The course will prepare you for the Pro Tools Proficiency Exam, and will arm you with a high-value skill-set that is essential in the music industry. Prior experience with Pro Tools or another DAW is highly recommended, but not required.
Students will have a chance to test out of the course by taking the proficiency exam at the beginning of the fall semester (optional).
Students will be provided with a list of resources in order to better prepare for the exam prior to their arrival on campus.
