  • Pro Tools Freelancer? Advice On Pro Tools Preferences To Check Before You Start Work In Another Studio
    As a freelancer, as we travel around, the facility’s setups will vary, and even though Pro Tools is likely to be a constant, the way the DAW is configured may vary. In this article, I am going to share which Pro Tools settings I check when I start a new job in a new facility to hopefully help you not hit a brick wall. Some of these settings will interrupt your workflow significantly if ticked/unticked. Others will simply slow you down and stress you out if you don't know what option changes what! Some will even make you have to re-do hours of work.

  • Using Shuttle Lock In Pro Tools To Fast Forward Scrub Through Audio - Expert Tip
    Fast Forwarding and Rewinding isn’t as important as it used to be in the days of linear media (that’s tape to most of us) as in a DAW we can just click and play from anywhere on the timeline. That’s fine as long as we know where we need to be in our sessions but playing through tracks faster or slower than real-time while hearing the audio can be useful for all sorts of reasons. Shuttle lock is a really useful feature which allows you to do just this.
