good info

The info given was good but done with protools 8...we are now at 12...an updated version would be good. I am not through all of it yet..perhaps there is a chapter that gives updates?

Response from Customer Service:

HI and thanks for the review!
Yes, this is an older tutorial shot when Pro Tools 8 was current.
I will add a request to our customer request list for any updates that may have been added to Elastic Audio.

Very good examples

This was very helpful. Hadn't used it in a while and now in PT12. This tutorial is very clear and a great example in it's practice; live! Would have liked to be told the key shortcuts for each move as was done with the "control" instruction. Though they probably are intuitive. Great video! Thank you.

Great Tutorial!

Well Explained! In depth explanations and offers creative approaches to using the application. Elastic audio is a tool that can destroy a take, but if used properly the tool can enhance a solid take to a great take.

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.
