Most of the action in Pro Tools takes place in two main windows: the Mix window and the Edit window. Learning the layout and features of these windows will help you master Pro Tools’ recording and editing features.
This chapter will introduce you to the main features of the Mix window, including channel strips, track controls, sends, inserts, and inputs and outputs. And you’ll learn how to adjust the display of the Mix window to get the most from limited screen space. You’ll learn the layout of the Edit window, too. I’ll point out important editing features such as Zoom buttons, Edit modes, Edit tools, and the Regions list. The latter is an invaluable tool for managing your audio files and MIDI data.
