    Tutorial 1

    Advanced Markers Pt. 1

    6:35

    Next we tackle Markers. No. Not the ones that you're use to. The ones to label parts of the song. We go much deeper into all of the possibilities that markers perform. Including Selection Markers, Zoom, Pre + Post Roll, Tracks - Show/Hide, Track Heights and Groups.

    Tutorial 4

    Window Configurations Pt. 1

    7:05

    Window Configurations is probably one of the best kept secrets deep in Pro Tools and probably one of the least used features and it shouldn't be. It's very powerful. In this video he shows you how to recall and store window configurations quickly, especially frequently used windows like the mix, edit, midi and transport.

    Tutorial 5

    Window Configurations Pt. 2

    7:22

    In Part II, Kenny sets up window configurations like tracks and clips, Kenny also dives into memory locations and markers. This quickly shows you how to gain control over how your session looks and feels.

    Tutorial 6

    Keyboard Shortcuts Pt. 1

    9:20

    Now one of the best ways to save time in Pro Tools is to use Keyboard Shortcuts to apply any task. There's no question that choosing things from menus using the mouse is much too slow. In this video, Kenny shows you some of the most useful ones you may not know about, and how to take advantage of them in your productions.

    Tutorial 7

    Keyboard Shortcuts Pt. 2

    8:48

    In Part II, Kenny continues to show us how to do things like quickly change settings on several tracks at once. Also we learn how to scan through automation parameters, control our inserts and sends, and easily turn things on and with just a few buttons.

    Tutorial 8

    Keyboard Focus Keys Pt. 1

    11:55

    The Keyboard Focus Keys make using keyboard shortcuts that much faster because they only require one key press to perform. While you might already use a few of them, this video explains how to easily do things like zoom, edit clips, fade and arrange clips with just one button.

  • image description

    Tutorial 9

    Keyboard Focus Keys Pt. 2

    11:20

    In Part II, Kenny explains the more advanced focus keys having to do with navigation, clip editing, copy and pasting, nudging and the transport controls.

  • image description

    Tutorial 10

    Shift Commands

    12:06

    In addition to the other keyboard shortcuts, there's also a bunch of commands that can be triggered while using Shift as the modifier. Again, speeding up our workflow dramatically.

    Tutorial 11

    Using Macro Key Commands Pt. 1

    12:06

    Next we get really advanced by using a separate Macro program to trigger all of our mostly used shortcuts in Pro Tools. Kenny shows you QuicKeys which allows us to hit one key command and do just about anything in the program. Including performing multiple repetitive tasks at once.

    Tutorial 12

    Using Macro Key Commands Pt. 2

    13:48

    In part II, Kenny continues to show you even more of his favorite macros that he uses in his productions everyday.

Shot in Pro Tools 11 and compatible with Pro Tools 8, 9 & 10, this in-depth series focuses on Workflow, arguably the most important aspect of using a DAW, making you a Pro Tools pro in no time.

Kenny jumps right in and reveals the powerful Import Session Data feature, which saves you a ton of time, by allowing you to Import Audio, Effects, Channels, and other often used Parameters into Your Sessions. Next, Advanced Marker Usage is shown, including Selection Markers, Zoom, Pre & Post Roll, Show / Hide Tracks, Track Heights, Groups and more.

Kenny goes thru each and every parameter that can be stored and recalled with this powerhouse feature, along with great examples of How They Can Be Applied. Keyboard Shortcuts are then explained and demonstrated, and this video alone will Dramatically Speed Up Your Workflow.

If you use Pro Tools, this series is beyond a "must have". This info and knowledge is what separates the novice from the expert... Watch "Pro Tools Advanced Vol 1" today.

what you need to know

I am a longtime home studio recording hobbyist and now 3 years experience with ProTools (formerly reel tape, then ADAT, then Cakewalk/Sonar, now PT.) I prefer instructional videos or idiot guides to learn complicated new things on PT but I'm not afraid to tinker and figure it out for myself. This video series was very enlightening. Very useful instruction presented efficiently and clearly, with many realistic examples. I look forward to exploring more videos from this presenter.

1. When did you start dabbling in music?

I've played an instrument since I was 10. Drums and Trumpet. I'm 40 now. I can play a little bit of any instrument. Master of none. Rock bands most of my life.

2. What training have you had?

I was taught trumpet classically from grade school up until I graduated high school. I went to Five Towns College for engineering and learned that you can't just learn this stuff from school. I did graduate though.

3. When did you get into recording?

I've been recording since I was 15. Two cassette players wired to a Radio Shack mixer. Eventually I got an 8 track reel to reel by Fostex. I've used just about every DAW and I started using them before they even recorded audio. Vision and Performer were just MIDI sequencers at the time. Before they became Studio Vision and Digital Performer. I got studio jobs because I knew computer MIDI and most studios didn't. I eventually moved up to Sound Tools which was two track. Then Pro Tools made a Audio Media III card which let you have 4 inputs. Gradually I moved up from there with Pro Tools D24, Pro Tools Mix to HD.

4. People you have worked with/for?

Marcy Playground
Mandy Moore
LFO
Willa Ford
Lee Ann Womack
Paulina Rubio
Hall & Oates
Bayside
Head Automatica
Cute is What We Aim For
FTSK
and many more...

5. Why are you so good at training people?

Hmmm. My Mom always said "Self Praise Stinks". I think it's because I have no ability to talk like a professional announcer, or plan out my teachings. So I teach as if you were sitting next to me. Pretty much off the cuff. I think that engages people more. We're so used to hearing everything done so properly and planned out with unnecessary explanations and proper wording that the brain will actually ignore most of it. Your brain tunes it out like you're back at your desk at school. But if the teacher grabbed you aside and just explained it to you, I believe you'd get more out of it. That is what I try to do.
