Join Scott Hirsch for an in-depth discussion in this video Building a clap track with audio loop recording, part of Learning Pro Tools.
- While we're on the subject of audio recording techniques,…I wanna show you a neat little trick…for doubling and tripling parts.…We saw previously how Loop Record works for MIDI…but now I wanna demonstrate how to use it…on an audio recording.…In this case, to make a layered part.…Let's start by making a new track.…Shift+Command+N, and this will be a mono track.…I'll hit Create and we're gonna name this track Claps…because we're gonna do some hand claps.…Okay, so just like when we did a MIDI loop recording,…we'll start by making a selection.…
So I wanna start by just selecting…the first four bars of the piece.…I'm just gonna make sure here.…I can actually look up here.…You want to verify the length of your selection.…You have a start point and end point…and then a total length.…So I actually indeed want four bars.…I'm going to loop from bar 1 to bar 5…for a total length of four bars,…and since I'm in Grid Mode,…I was able to click in there…and make a very precise selection…over those four bars.…Okay, so next steps to set up recording…
