The course will cover common situations such as recording live instruments, MIDI sequencing of software synthesizers, and audio looping, with lessons in configuring a session, creating and organizing, files and regions, importing files, setting up virtual instruments, creating fades, basic volume automation, etc. Note: Students are required to have a Pro Tools system installed on their laptops.
