If you are a premium member of lynda.com Online Training Library or if you are watching this tutorial on a DVD-ROM, you have access to the exercise files used throughout this title. Each chapter has a folder. Inside each chapter you will see sessions or folders for each video that has exercise files associated with it. The Pro Tools session files for each exercise are located inside of each of those exercise folders. When you open an exercise file, you might see a few dialog boxes or warning windows like this. This first one, The original disk allocation for this session cannot be used. Check the disk allocation window to see what's changed.
That simply means that the hard drive that this session was originally created on is not connected to your system now. So that's okay. The second part says Your IO Setup has changed since the last time this session was saved. Check the IO Setups window to see what's changed. That means that your Digidesign or M-Audio interface is different than the one that was used to create this session. Would you like to save a detailed report? Usually not necessary. Click No. When the session opens up, you might see this Missing Files dialog. Keep the Automatically find and Relink button highlighted and I highly recommend checking off the Regenerate Missing Fades Without Searching.
This means that Pro Tools will automatically search your hard drives and find and relink the audio files to this session and this means that Pro Tools will recreate any fades that are in your session without having to search for those files on your hard drive. This speeds up the process of getting your session up and running really quickly. Press OK and you will see the audio files become relinked to the session really quickly. If you are a monthly subscriber or annual subscriber to lynda.com you don't have access to these exercise files. However, the videos in this course will be more than adequate to demonstrate the concepts and techniques needed to use Pro Tools 8 effectively. You can also create your own sessions to mimic what I do in these videos to further enhance your understanding. Let's get started.
