Join Frank D. Cook for an in-depth discussion in this video Solution: Creating a session, part of Pro Tools 12 Essential Training: 101.
(bright synthesizer music)…- [Instructor] So here's how…the completed session should look.…Let's walk through how to get there.…I'll start by selecting Session from the pop up menu…at the top of the dashboard,…and then specifying a name for this session.…DHY Remix O1.…Towards the bottom of the dashboard,…I can set the session parameters,…being sure to select 16-bit for the bit depth,…and 44.1 kilohertz for the sample rate.…
I'll also set the IO settings to Stereo Mix.…Additionally, I like to enable the Interleave checkbox…and select the Prompt for Location option…so that I can specify a Save Location for my session.…And here, I'll select my audio drive as my saved location.…When the session opens, I'll add tracks…using the New Tracks dialog box,…which I can get to under the track menu…by choosing New, or by pressing cmd + shift + n…on the Mac, or ctrl + shift + n on Windows.…
Here I'll specify one new mono audio track…plus three stereo audio tracks…and one stereo master fader track.…Next, I'll double-click on the nameplate…
