Learn the basics of recording, editing, mixing, and exporting great-sounding mixes with Pro Tools 12.
- [Voiceover] Hi, I'm Scott Hirsch. I'm the author of Up and Running with Pro Tools. In this course, we'll get you going with Pro Tools 12, the industry standard recording software from Avid. You'll get a close-up look at building a song using the built-in AIR instrument suite, Elastic Audio, MIDI, and AIR plug-ins. We'll be getting you familiar with the key features of the software interface and how to quickly get your Pro Tools system set up. We'll show you how to navigate around the app like a pro as we build a song from scratch, taking you through recording, arrangement, and mixing stages of our song.
Along the way, we'll be using the XPAND 2 sampler instrument which we'll use to record and edit MIDI-based drum beats. We'll get into recording live instruments as we craft a bass line and enhance the tone with the Eleven amp simulator plug-in, as we harmonize synth parts and build percussion tracks. I hope you're as excited as I am to take a first look at the newest version of Pro Tools 12. Let's get started.
