A Pro Tools course for students with intermediate DAW skills and interest in producing MIDI-based recordings. The students will be introduced to a more detailed look at Pro Tools using a wider array of shortcuts, and learn to implement recording techniques such as punch-ins, track comping and tuning, and step or loop MIDI recording. Students will also learn to use the Elastic Audio and Beat Detective features to quantize audio, and to integrate track grouping, submixes and networks of multiple sends and returns into their sessions. Students must be ready to demonstrate to the instructor their working knowledge of MIDI editing and some basic mixing experience using either Logic, DP or Reason during the first week of classes. Note: students are required to have a Pro Tools system installed on their laptops.
