AVID Control for Pro Tools Explained® is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2 .
Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Finally I understand!! For a long time I was never able to sit at my keyboard and use Avid Control for anything except Start Stop Record and Mute, then I had to walk back to my computer to make other important changes to my session. But after viewing Avid Control for Pro Tools Explained I can sit at my piano and control all of the parameters of my session with ease. I can’t believe how easily I’m controlling everything from my iPad and never leave my piano. Avid Control is full of useful control over Pro Tools but only if you understand it. There is nothing you should have to walk back to your computer for unless you just want to. Everything you need can be controlled from your iPad. Truthfully using PT Control was always confusing until i learned it from this video. I can’t believe how much I did not understand. Now I love this program. Now I can concentrate on my music and not getting up and down to make changes. Changing counters setting up jump keys and Macros??? This is so cool.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Awesome!!! I came here mostly for the soft keys (i'm a Composer and i really rely on shortcuts and macros for big film scores templates) but i couldn't resist to watch the entire course and treasure every word of it! I've learned a tip and trick... Or two!!!
