Join David Franz for an in-depth discussion in this video Mastering a session, part of Pro Tools 10 Essential Training.
In this video I am going to show you how I actually set up a mastering session.…I have got all my final mixes in the session here, and I have brought in all of…my mastering effects.…Now, I have a created a template for mastering and I've imported these tracks…from that, and you can access it here if you go to File > Import > Session…Data and choose the Mastering_Template.…That's where I have pulled my tracks in from.…So I am going to switch over to the Mix window and show you what I have brought in here.…
I have two aux tracks, two more audio tracks, a stereo master fader, and…another audio track.…And the most important part of this session is the signal routing.…And what I need to do is change a couple of things.…First, I need to set the output of these three audio tracks to Bus 1 and 2.…I will do that quickly here.…So these tracks, these three audio tracks, are now bussed to this next…track right here, where it's picked up on this aux track, where it will go…through some effects.…
And then this track is bussed to the second track, so now I can add some…
