PT110 Pro Tools Fundamentals II Overview
The Pro Tools Fundamentals II (PT110) class expands upon the basic principles taught in the Pro Tools Fundamentals I (PT101) class and introduces the core concepts and techniques students need to competently operate a Pro Tools system running mid-sized sessions. Students learn to build sessions designed for commercial purposes and improve the results of their recording, editing, and mixing efforts. The hands-on exercises provide experience setting up sessions, importing media, working with digital video, spotting sound effects, using loop recording and MIDI Merge techniques, working with virtual instruments, warping with Elastic Audio, applying Real-Time Properties, creating clip loops, applying signal processing, using automation, and using submixes and track groups to simplify a final mix. Together with the first class in the series, Pro Tools Fundamentals (PT101), this class provides the training required to prepare for the Avid Certified User: Pro Tools certification exam.
This course is designed for moderately skilled users looking to continue expanding their skills in Pro Tools.
