Building It Out

By in Get Started Fast with Pro Tools

Now that we’ve added guitar parts and a structure for the song, in Episode 4 of Get Started Fast with Pro Tools, we can begin using the MIDI Edit Window with Xpand!2 virtual instrument (VI). We’ll use these tools to change the drum pattern and duplicate it, getting ready to add more parts. I’ll record some vocals to fill it out, and then record an organ, again using Xpand!2. Let’s get started.
