Join David Franz for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting essential preferences, part of Pro Tools 9 Essential Training.
Pro Tools has a huge number of preferences that you can adjust to customize how…you work with Pro Tools.…I certainly won't cover all of them here, but when you're just starting out…using Pro Tools, it's a good idea to set up or confirm that several of the…essential preferences are enabled.…Let's go to Setup and choose Preferences.…You'll see at the top of the page here seven tabs; each tab opens up a different…page of preferences.…When you're just getting started using Pro Tools, you might want to make sure to…keep the Tool Tips on, so that when you mouse over a button in Pro Tools, you can…see the function and details that describe what it does.…
I also like keeping the Quick Start dialog open when Pro Tools starts up.…That's an easy way to get started using Pro Tools and creating a new session.…And I like all the other the defaults on this page, and we'll cover a few more of…these later in other videos.…Let's go over to the Operation tab and go down to probably the most important…preference that you have here in Pro Tools: the Auto Backup.…
