What third party companies do you recommend for Importing loops other than Pro-tools. I have pro-tools 9 and cannot locate the disc. Thanks!

Creating A New Session

  • Quick Start: When you first launch PT, the quick start dialog box is displayed, giving you options for creating or opening a session.
  • Creating & Configuring Pro Tools Session:
    • From the Quick Start dialog box, you can begin a new recording project either by selecting Creating Session From Template or Create Blank Session. Session Templates comes with PT installer disc, which includes preconfigured with common & mixer setups.
  • Sample Rate: PT supports sample rates up to 192 kHz. To optimize the file sizes in your session, choose the lowest sample rate that meets the needs of the project. A sample rate of 44.1 kHz the industry standard for audio CD. Higher sample rates can be chosen for demanding project, to capture a greater frequency response however, higher sample rates come greater disk space requirements.
  • I/O Settings: PT provides preset input and output configurations for stereo mix or various surround sound options. You can always choose the Last Used to load the settings from your last session.
  • Bit Depth: PT 10 works with files in 16, 24 or 32 bit floating-point audio resolution. The 16-bit option generates smaller files and it’s typically adequate for basic recordings for audio CDs. 24 and 32-bit float options provide greater dynamic range in your recorded audio.
  • Creating A Session: After choosing your session parameters and clicking ok in the Quick Start dialog box, you will be asked to choose a save location and a name for the new session.
  • The Playback Cursor & Edit Cursor:
    • Playback Cursor: It’s a solid, non-blinking line that moves across the screen during playback and indicates where the current playback point is. The playback cursor’s exact time location is displayed in the Main & Sub Counters in the Transport Window.
    • Edit Cursor: The edit cursor is a flashing line that appears when you click the Selector tool in a track. The blinking edit cursor indicates the starting point for any editing tasks that you perform.
