Pro Tools has several record modes.…The main ones are Nondestructive, Destructive, Loops, and QuickPunch.…The current record mode is indicated by the Record button icon in the Transport…Controls, right over here.…If you right-click, you can see all four modes listed.…You can also choose them from the Options menu, right here at the top.…You'll usually record in Nondestructive, a.k.a. Normal mode.…I don't recommend using Destructive mode because it records over existing audio,…erasing whatever it records over.…
Recording in Normal nondestructive mode does not erase over existing material.…So let's get to recording.…I want to add a chimey single note guitar part over my original guitar idea,…which I've double-tracked here on these two tracks with two acoustic guitars,…and I've panned each one left and right.…So I am going to add a new track, a mono audio track, and we'll change the input…because I'm still plugged into Analog 1.…
I am going to name the track Lead gtr, and I am going to do one more fun thing.…
