Residing just below the Edit tools in the Edit window are a number of buttons…that enable you to do some special things in Pro Tools. Let's take a look.…We'll go from left to right.…The first one is Zoom toggle.…We've discussed that in a video about zooming.…Next to Zoom toggle is Tab to Transients.…When it's active, the button is blue, like shown here.…Tab to Transients allows you to use the Tab key to navigate from one transient…part of an audio waveform to the next, making it easy to find edit points on a…drum track or other tracks with obvious transients in their waveforms.…
Let me show you an example.…We have a drum track down here, and I'm going to hit the Tab key.…You'll see that it's bouncing from transient to transient.…Let me zoom in for more detail.…To move backwards, you can hit Option+Tab on a Mac, or Alt+Tab on a PC.…You can press Shift+Tab to highlight and press Option+Shift+Tab on a Mac or…Alt+Shift+Tab to highlight backwards.…
This is a great tool for defining the area to create a loop.…
