Join David Franz for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know before watching this course, part of Learning Songwriting: Pro Tools.
While it would be helpful to have a basic working knowledge of Pro Tools before taking this course, you may not need it if you pick up software quickly. That said, if you'd like to understand the basics before taking this course, check out Pro Tools Essential Training. You can watch it alongside of this course to reference specific topics that I may not dive deep into in the course. If questions arise about specific buttons, preferences, etcetera during the course. For example, let's say you want to learn about all the uses for the selector and grabber tools. Just watch this movie here in the Pro Tools EssentialTtraining course.
If you have experience using Pro Tools, then you definitely don't need any prerequisites for this course and can simply dive right in.
