Import Session Data10:17
In this video, Kenny explains the advanced technique of using 'Import Session Data' to import tracks from other sessions, including audio files or just specific parameters on a parameter by parameter basis.
Advanced Markers Pt. 16:35
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.
Advanced Markers Pt. 210:30
Kenny continues to explore markers in Pro Tools.
Window Configurations Pt. 17:05
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.
Window Configurations Pt. 27:22
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.
Keyboard Shortcuts Pt. 19:20
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.
Keyboard Shortcuts Pt. 28:48
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.
Keyboard Focus Keys Pt. 111:55
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.
Keyboard Focus Keys Pt. 211:20
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.
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.
Using Macro Key Commands Pt. 112:06
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.
Using Macro Key Commands Pt. 213:48
In part II, Kenny continues to show you even more of his favorite macros that he uses in his productions everyday.

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!!

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.
