In this lesson, our instructor Evren Edler gives an introduction to the basic editing techniques of Pro Tools. He starts off reviewing how to set your playback options and loop playback, then goes over the edit modes and how to combine them. He also explains configuring the grid, learning editing commands such as the trim/ loop trim function and the nudge function, and creating fades and crossfades.
As we spoke about those, there
are 4 options; No Scrolling, After Playback, Page & Continuous.
Using the Edit Modes:
PT also provides a combo-mode
feature called snap to Grid. This feature allows you to make
selections based on the Grid while editing in Shuffle, Slip or Spot
mode. You can activate by shift clicking the Grid mode whenever one
of the three other Edit Modes selected.
Configuring the Grid:
PT allows you to set timing
Grid, based on an interval of your choosing, to help maintain the
timing of clips, notes, events, and selections as you edit your
session. We will set the value for grid on Grid value pop-up
Like most other applications, PT offers standard commands, such as
Copy & Paste as well as application-specific commands, such as
Separate Clip/ Heal Clip.
Using The Nudge Function:
PT allows you to set an
increment for adjusting the placement of clips and selections in
small, precise amounts using the keyboard.
Fade in & fade our effects
can be created at the beginning or ending of any Audio clip,
respectively, using a selection that touches or crosses the clip
