Basic Editing Techniques

  • Setting Playback Options:
    • 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 selector.
  • Editing Clips:
    • 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.
  • Creating Fades:
    • 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 boundary.
