Must watch

I can't believe ANY Pro Tool user will not find some useful tip in here, but if you've got any gaps in your pro Tools facility, at under 2 hours this is a must watch. I'll be watching it again for sure. The explanation of the elastic audio is first rate, and the tips on fades using the keyboard will be the only way I work!

Information is good but videos could use some help.

I'm an experienced Pro Tools user but there is always something I didn't know, had forgotten, or a different approach to learn. This one was no exception. However, there is one thing I feel would help a great deal. When talking about a keyboard shortcut, the keystrokes should be displayed on screen. A visual aid should also be used for the cursor. So your eye is drawn to it immediately. Other than that, good explanations and good examples.

Patrick Coffin first picked up a guitar at age 11 and has since spent countless hours refining his musicianship and skills in both the creative and the technical aspects of recording. Patrick earned an associate degree in Classical Guitar Performance in 2007, and he began a sound design position in the video game industry shortly after. He spent several years taking courses in sound recording at Brigham Young University while working on-campus audio production jobs. Since then, Patrick has worked in various production roles: Studio Producer and Engineer, Podcast/Short Film Sound Designer and Mixer, Field Audio Recorder, Live Sound Engineer, and Music Video Producer and Post-Production Engineer. In 2013 Patrick co-founded the artist development company Refinement Records, where young musicians developed a strong performing, song writing, and production foundation. As Head of Production he worked with many clients to coach them in writing, recording, mixing, mastering, and marketing their music. He also oversaw video production and live performances for the company. This role was the perfect opportunity to develop and refine both effective teaching skills and production methods. In recent years, Patrick has worked with Mudcat Studios engineering and producing for bands in northern Utah, as well as audio capturing and editing productions for The Professor of Rock. He also founded production company Mighty Happy Crew—a group of artists across the country who work together to create positive music and videos to “Spread the Happy.” In heading this project, Patrick has assisted many musicians in setting up home studios and taught them the basics of recording so they can be self-reliant and productive. Patrick feels truly blessed to live a life filled with music and creativity—he is excited for every opportunity to share what he has learned along the way.
