In our Exercise Files folder, you will see the ELI Session folder and the Example Music folder. In the Example Music Folder, you will see both of the songs that we will be editing in this course. In the ELI Session folder, you will se several Pro Tools files. Each of these Pro Tools files is named with the chapter number, underscore, the video number, underscore, and a short description of the content of the video.
If you open any one of these Pro Tools sessions, you will se the session on the same start state as the corresponding video. If you open the session and are prompted for missing audio or fade files, just choose Automatically Find & Relink, which will re-link the audio files, and select Regenerate Missing Fades Without Searching, which will recreate the fade files, click OK, and the session will open and regenerate the missing fades and re-link the missing audio. In our Audio Files folder, you will see the example music that we will be using in this course, and in the Guide Tracks folder, you will see the audio files or the production audio tracks from the ELI clips that we will be using in this course, and you will also see a couple of files that we will be making along the way.
