  • Tracks Freeze Confirmed As Pro Tools Feature On Avid Store
    There’s been a lot of discussion around the recent Pro Tools 12 announcement, creating as many questions as answers, one in particular is the addition of track freeze. Whilst there have been implications of track freeze as an addition in Pro Tools 12 no one at Avid has explicitly said this. Even the new Pro Tools 12 Features page makes no mention of it.Some users have said it comes as part of the cloud collaboration and that earlier demos of future Pro Tools features also indicated track freeze. However those early demos were technology previews and came with a very clear legal disclaimer that nothing was promised as features and would be confirmed at a later date.However a recent addition to the Avid store page has a this line added (see image below) to the list entitled ‘Why Upgrade To Pro Tools 11’.Last on that list it says ‘Enjoy track freeze and many more exciting new features coming throughout 2015’So although this feature seems to have been alluded to in various demos, interviews and other sources, Avid seem now to have confirmed this in their own store.Will it come in the first version of Pro Tools 12? Who knows, the text simply indicates it being a feature in 2015.

  • 8 Tips For Getting A Great Bass Guitar Sound
    It’s one of the things we get asked a more than anything else when it comes to recording instruments, how do you get a great bass guitar sound?If you are a veteran to recording then this list should come as no surprise, but if you are new then try these and see how much difference they can make to getting the right bass sound on your tracks.Quality CountsThey say that a bad workman blames his tools, that’s partly true, give a great bass player even a cheap instrument and they will do amazing things. However it’s not just about the playing but it’s also the sound of the instrument. Get a great bass guitar - bass is one of those instruments that shows when the money has been spent. That’s got a lot to do with the wood and the quality of the instrument - with bass you can hear it!String TheoryTry Different strings; they all have different sounds. A decent bass player will already know this, but if you are new to bass then take a trip to a decent music store and get some advice on the different types of strings and their different weights, you’ll be surprised by how much they can affect both sound and performance.Tone BankExperiment with the tone before you record, most basses have a huge variety of sound just built into the pickup pots and switches. Some tracks lend themselves to nice low non-descript brooding bass sounds, other tracks work better with a more punch mid tone. If you have a good amp then use it and use the tone built in; again there’s a vast amount of variety with a good bass amp. Spending some time before you hit record can make a heck of a difference.Style CouncilExperiment with the playing style - some songs need hard finger style playing and other songs need a pick style - it can make all the difference. Try a few takes with a few different styles then listen back. A pro bass player will also use several different styles in one song to help differentiate between sections.Mic CheckTry different mics on the bass cab; ask 10 engineers which mic to use and you’ll get 10 different answers, but some favourites are Sennheiser 421, EV RE20, Shure SM57, AKG D12 or 414. Experiment with mic positioning on the cab and distance too, both have a bearing on the final result.Tracks DI And AmpTry and get a track of both the amp and the DI sound by using a splitter before the bass hits the amp and then try them both in the mix afterwards. Often the final bass sound in a mix will be a combination of both DI and amp.In The MixO…

  • Control Pro Tools Plug-ins With A MIDI Controller & Controllermate Software In Pro Tools 11
    Just before Christmas we shared a very interesting video from Brian Daly, the man behind the Hotkey Matrix showing he was able to control plug-in parameters using a Behringer BCR2000 using MIDI.  We have been asking Avid for MIDI learn for ages but Brian has created this excellent work around whilst we wait for Avid to deliver.  Many of you were very interested in how he used Controllermate to make this work and so Brian has created this brilliant tutorial video showing how it is done.He has also set up an impressive resource with examples and guidance on what features you need from your MIDI Controller and he also includes some example setup files that you can import into Controllermate to help you get started.As Controllermate is a Mac only application this work round is only going to work for Mac users. It also transpired that this will only work fully in Pro Tools 11 because when you select a plug-in it becomes the active window as Controllermate works on the active window.  Pro Tools 10 works differently and doesn’t make the current plug-in, the active window and so Controllermate works on the active window, which is likely to be the Edit or Mix window.Because he uses Controllermate to convert endless rotary controllers and buttons MIDI data into mouse scroll wheel or mouse clicks and it works on the relative position within a plug-in window then it doesn’t matter where the plug-in is and what your system is, as far as Pro Tools is concerned it is responding to mouse data, nothing else.

I have been part of the Sound Collectors Club almost since its inception and I thought it would be great to share this great idea of collaboration and cooperative working a little wider so I asked the founder Michael Maroussas to share a little more about The Sound Collectors Club.PTE: When did you start The Sound Collectors Club?MM: The Sound Collectors’ Club was started in 2010 as a new way to share sounds online with likeminded sound folk all around the world. PTE: How can you join the SCC?MM: We’ve just started a new Club membership year for 2015, so if you’d like to join us then please visit The Sound Collectors’ Club and click on the blue button on the right hand side of the homepage.  PTE: How much does it cost?MM: For just £20 per year, you can start contributing to and sharing the Club’s sound collections, plus reach out to other sound pros around the world via your automatic invite to join the Club’s shared Evernote notebook, ‘The Knowledge’, as well as the Club’s new LinkedIn discussion group. There, that’s the 20 second pitch done!  PTE: The SCC has gone through a number of different models since you started it back in 2010. How does it work now?MM: The Club is based upon the folder sharing capabilities of Google Drive.  When you join, you are allocated your own specific ‘uploading’ folder, which is what you use to share your sounds with the Club.  The idea is that members can then upload their recording, which relate to one of the given Club themes announced on the website, and subsequently gain access to another shared folder of everyone else’s recordings that have been accumulated since that theme began.  The more themes you contribute to, the more you gain access to.  We’re basically crowdsourcing sound fx collections online.PTE: So if you contribute a sound to a theme, then you get access to all the sounds that everyone else has contributed to that theme?MM: Yes that’s right, by contributing just one recording you could end up with a small arsenal of sounds to add to your library. Once your uploaded recording(s) has been approved by me and transferred into the appropriate theme folder, you get emailed an ‘invite’ which will give you direct access to all the tracks which that theme contains.  You can then download this theme folder and sync it to your desktop so you’ll automatically receiv…

  • More Thunderbolt Solutions For Audio At NAMM 2015 Exclude Windows Users
    If anyone thought that Thunderbolt was a flash in the pan for audio technology solutions then NAMM 2015 announcements should put pay to that idea. Many of the new product and announcements at NAMM 2015 use Thunderbolt technology, which on the whole excludes Windows users. There are some Thunderbolt equipped Windows based PCs but most manufacturers are reticent to qualify their products for use with Windows machines.We’ve spoken in great deal about this on several Pro Tools Expert podcasts, with Neil expressing his dissatisfaction with this situation but at the same time explaining some of the reasons why it’s not always easy to offer Thunderbolt solutions for Windows users. It’s not for want of trying with forward thinking brands like the Pro Tools PC offers dual Thunderbolt 2 as standard, so the technology is there and ready to work.Some Windows users have taken the plunge using Thunderbolt with mixed results, there’s an excellent thread on the UAD forum showing this here.Of course there is plenty of professional audio equipment on the market that uses fully Windows compatible technology, but with more and more manufacturers offering Thunderbolt only solutions it does leave Windows users with less choice.So What Stops Windows Users Experiencing The Benefits Of ThunderboltThere’s an excellent article here about the issues from AnandTech entitled Thunderbolt on PCs: A Crippled Experience :The reason for the far from optimal experience with Thunderbolt on PCs boils down to two different aspects, the hardware and the software. In terms of hardware, Intel has never allowed motherboard vendors to hang the Thunderbolt silicon / add-in card off the CPU’s PCIe lanes. These have to hang off the platform controller hub (PCH). On the other hand, Apple was allowed to hook up the Thunderbolt silicon directly to the CPU. The reason behind this leads us to the software side of things.Apple has full control over the operating system. Hanging Thunderbolt peripherals directly off the CPU’s PCIe lanes requires extensive support from the operating system, particularly when it comes to hot plugging devices and/or waking up peripherals from sleep mode. Over the PCIe lanes off the PCH, Intel has more control via its chipset drivers. Ultimately, it looks like Microsoft dropped the ball and Intel decided to come up with a certification solution by only allowing Thunderbolt silicon to talk to the PCH for all PC boards.While Microsoft continues to twiddle…

  • Why Avid Have Made Pro Tools First And How The Limitations May Hinder That Plan
    Avid are hoping a lot of people are going to get a copy of Avid Pro Tools First, it’s long been their desire to find ways to stem the growing tide of new music makers choosing other more powerful and relevant, as well as often cheaper, DAWs to make music with. Secondly Avid need to find ways to get people signed up to Avid accounts and on their cloud services in order to bait and switch them to buy in app purchases or get hooked on Pro Tools and possibly upgrading to a paid version, or even better a subscription.There’s nothing wrong with either one of these marketing strategies, it’s not some evil corporate conspiracy. Avid need to make money and both in app purchases and bait and switch models are common ways to generate income. If you have any doubt about this then go look at Apple’s revenues and compare their hardware sales to their iTunes and App Store revenue.It’s a good idea to make a free copy of Pro Tools, in fact I remember having a couple of conversations with Avid team and suggesting this as a way to go to get new music makers into Pro Tools.However, there seems to be some disconnect with the Avid Everywhere philosophy when it comes to the actual offering of Avid Pro Tools First. Looking at the limitations and the features it feels like the accountants have managed to make the decisions about the feature set in Pro Tools First. This is at the expense of a great user experience and even worse to the detriment of the Avid Everywhere mantra of interoperability and compatibility.I’m not talking about track count, included plug-ins or some of the core features but some of the things that any modern DAW, and especially an application that’s part of a product family needs to have. Here are a few things lacking in Pro Tools First that make it far less attractive than the headlines suggest.Pro Tools Session IncompatibilityRead the FAQs for Pro Tools First and Avid say this:Q. My friend has sent me a standard Pro Tools session file to work on, can I use Pro Tools | First for working on this session?A. No. You cannot import or export a Pro Tools session file with associated media with Pro Tools | First. You can import or export audio filesSome educators online were talking about their students having a copy of Pro Tools First to use at home, until this fact was made clear. In other words having a copy of Pro Tools First to use at home  to augment the work you do on the full versions of Pro Tools your college has is hindered by…

  • A-Z of Pro Tools - I is for I/O, Insertion Follows Playback, Identify Beat, Instrument Track, Import Audio, Import Session Data
    This week we are spoilt for choice, so many significant parts of Pro Tools relate to the letter I that its a good opportunity to revisit some of the great content already on the site.I/O SetupPro Tools offers flexible, customisable routing and with the addition of of mapped output busses in Pro Tools 9, sessions travel better between systems than they used to. People who work entirely in the box and on their own system can get by without visiting this page often but in my world, constantly moving sessions between systems, I’m in and out of here daily. If you could do with a primer, Mike Thornton offers some resources.Insertion Follows PlaybackPut simply this controls where playback will start from after you press stop. Insertion follows playback and link edit and timeline selections are so important to understanding how playback works in Pro Tools that the first thing which came to mind when I started the Pro Tools Fundamentals series was a tutorial on precisely this.Identify BeatEveryone knows how to move audio on the timeline but not everyone knows how to move the timeline to match audio. You don’t have to use Beat Detective to build a tempo map. It all starts with Identify Beat. Here is a video tutorial from Russ.Members watch hereInstrument TracksIn the old days (pre Pro Tools 7), to use a software instrument you had to create a midi track for the midi and route that to an instrument inserted on an aux input. Instrument tracks neatly combined both midi and audio into one, far easier format (as long as you know you have to show the instrument section in the mixer to find the midi controls - not at all beginner-friendly). Russ explains all.Import AudioAlthough you can drag and drop audio in to Pro Tools or use the workspace browser, I encourage beginners to use the import audio window as it helps avoid some of the problems waiting to trap the unsuspecting newbie. I wrote a piece on it last year.Import Session DataPro Tools doesn’t allow you to have more than one session open at the same time, neither does it officially support track presets. This might appear restrictive but if you know how to use Import Session Data then most of these restrictions fall away. Its a busy window, it looks complicated but its actually very simple. We have a video tutorial that covers this. Members watch here

  • How Many Of The Top 25 Pro Tools IdeaScale Ideas Appear In Pro Tools 12?
    When Pro Tools 10 was announced Avid proudly announced that many of the features found in Pro Tools 10 were those found in the top 10 Pro Tools IdeaScale most requested features.For those unaware of Pro Tools IdeaScale, this was set up by Avid several years ago to gather user ideas for features they would like to see in Pro Tools. At the top of the Avid run site they say:“Welcome to the Pro Tools IdeaScale User Forum - In this community you can submit an idea, vote on existing ideas or add your comments.”However in recent years it seems that most of the suggestions made and the voting has been in vain, as right now it seems none of the top 25 ideas on the site have been implemented, they are certainly not mentioned in the product info for the upcoming Pro Tools 12. We may be wrong and find that track freeze may be part of the collaboration features, this is not clear from Avid’s own information on their website about Pro Tools 12. Even if this is the case then it still leaves 24 of the top 25 ignored.As a matter of fact cloud collaboration, in app purchases and selling your content don’t feature in the top 25 of the list at all.It seems that Pro Tools IdeaScale may be less effective at getting Avid to listen than the Pro Tools community would hope.

  • Flux:: & Junger Collaborate To Produce 'Level Magic' Loudness Processor Plug-in - NAMM 2015
    As a result of a joint engineering venture, Jünger Audio and Flux have announced at NAMM 2015 Jünger’s Level Magic will be available for the first time in a software format. Level Magic is a loudness measurement, correction and management algorithm designed to ensure compliance with all current worldwide loudness standards which up until now has only been available in Jünger hardware units.Based on the underlying ITU-R BS.1770(-1/2/3) principle, Level Magic provides compatibility with EBU R128, ATSC A/85, ARIB TR-B32, FREE TV OP-59 and Portaria 354.Designed to be audibly transparent, Level Magic utilises a proprietary multi-loop approach comprising of three essential elements in parallel to measure, and if necessary correct, out of specification audio. An AGC section controls slower changing levels over time whilst a fast acting transient processor catches inaudible high frequency overshoots that may otherwise cause detrimental effects in downstream processing or coding.A brickwall filter provides effective True Peak limiting using a 2ms look-ahead to capture any intersample peaks. The resultant gain changing signal is a combination of all three elements.The Level Magic algorithm is highly adaptive to the structure of the incoming audio and requires only a small number of parameters to be set by the user. The result is audio compliant with the selected standard but free of any unwanted artefacts such as pumping, breathing or distortion. CEO Gael Martinet, CEO of Flux told us…. With the combined experience of Flux:: and Jünger, we believe this collaboration to be a perfect match between two companies from two different parts of the industry, united by a passion for extraordinary audio products. Level Magic is a great addition to our current product range, meeting the growing demand for comprehensive loudness correction processors on the audio software market.All major DAW platforms are supported (AAX/AS/AU/VST) for both Real Time and Offline (AudioSuite) processing in 32 & 64 bits under both Windows and Mac OS X. Supported audio I/O formats include Mono, Stereo and Multichannel 5.1.
