Hi! I'm Brian White. Welcome to Pro Tools: Editing Drums Using Beat Detective and SoundReplacer.

Together, these tools are standard fare in any professional's core Pro Tools workflow. In this course, I'll show you how to quantize multi-track drum recordings using Beat Detective, helping that drummer with questionable timing sound as solid as a rock. (Drums beating) I'll teach you how to use the stock MIDI editing in Pro Tools to trigger samples and sweeten any drum recording without special plug-ins.
