By in Get Started Fast with Pro Tools

Welcome to the first episode of Get Started Fast with Pro Tools, a 7 episode series demonstrating how to quickly get started with creating inspiring music and audio tracks in Pro Tools. If you are new to Pro Tools, or even if you’ve been using Pro Tools for some time I’m sure you will find lots of tips and tricks that will help you to craft great sounding songs that really stand out from the crowd.

We’ll start with practicing and working out the song in Pro Tools with the Duet interface using templates, then move through the process of recording guitar, bass and MIDI keyboards with Virtual Instruments. Then we’ll cover audio and MIDI editing all the way to the final mix and getting your song out the world.

Let’s get started with Episode 1 where we use the templates included with Pro Tools to start working on a song.
