Join Frank D. Cook for an in-depth discussion in this video Solution: Editing audio, part of Pro Tools 12 Essential Training: 101.
- [Announcer] So here's how the…completed session should look.…Let's walk through how to get there.…I'll start by opening the DHY Remix O5 session…and saving it as DHY Remix O6.…Then I'll set my grid size by clicking on…the Grid Value Selector here in…the Edit window toolbar,…and choosing a quarter-note increment.…Next, I'll zoom in a bit so that I can easily see…the start of each measure on the Bar Beats ruler.…Right now, it's only showing every other bar.…
So there's lots of ways to zoom in in ProTools.…I'll just click on the horizontal Zoom In button one time.…Now, I'll press Return to go back…to the start of the session and work on the VOX one track,…and I'm just going to resize that track…to make it a little bit easier to view on-screen.…Next, I'll use the grabber tool to drag the vocal clip…on this track one bar later so that it starts at bar two.…Since I'm working in Grid mode,…the clip snaps to grid increment.…
Then I'll unmute the track, press Return,…and give it a listen.…♫ One and two and kick it with the bump…
