Welcome to our brand new video tutorial series co-created by Berklee Online and Avid. In this 9-part series, Organizing and Mixing Your Sessions in Pro Tools, I’ll be teaching you techniques used by professional engineers. If you like this tutorial series, you might find the in-depth curriculum of my Berklee Online course, Mixing & Mastering with Pro Tools even more valuable.
To dive into this series, we’re going to have a look at creating a tempo map for a Pro Tools session that was not recorded to a click. This is a really handy thing to do if you wind up working with a Pro Tools session where the music doesn’t really correlate to what Pro Tools is thinking about in terms of the tempo of a song. This sometimes comes up if you record some music where you aren’t listening to a click in Pro Tools or maybe the music was done somewhere else and imported into Pro Tools. Let’s get started with this first episode, Tempo Track.
