Very helpful.

As a longtime Pro Tools user I learned a LOT from these videos. One quick question.... Is there a way to play back audio at different speeds within Pro Tools? In many video editing programs you can adjust the playback speed with the JKL keys (J = backwards, JJ = backwards x2, K = Stop, L = play, LL = play forward x2....ect)... Can this be done in PT? Great course!!

Response from :

Hi there, thanks for your review! If you press the spacebar + play, Pro Tools will playback all non-muted tracks at half speed. Pro Tools also offers an additional mode called Shuttle Lock. This can be activated when in either Classic or Transport modes and allows playback of up to 2 tracks simultaneously at a variety of speeds, controllable by the 1-9 keys on the numeric key pad. Hope that helps!

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.
