AVID Pro Tools is a powerful software for audio engineers, sound designers, and music producers. This 1-Day crash-course introduces you to the fundamental principles and concepts of recording and mixing music in Pro Tools, and brings you the essential skills and knowledge needed to bring a project from initial set-up to final mix-down.
Lecture and demonstration work in conjunction with hands-on exercises where students practice working with audio media in Pro Tools, become familiar with its tools and interface, recording and importing audio and MIDI, and using basic processing and mixing techniques to finalize a production. We’ll cover the various steps in the mixing process, such as equalization, dynamic processing, parallel compression techniques, spatial panning, and using effects such as delay, reverb, modulation, auto-tune, etc.
Students leave the course with the knowledge to start producing and mixing music with this powerful software.
Please note that students will need to have AVID Pro Tools software on their computers. A free 30 Day Trial of the software is available here.
