We’re delighted to introduce a new Pro Tools short course to our programme. This weekend course will take you through the Pro Tools interface, as well as how to record, edit and mix audio and MIDI.
You will discover virtual instruments, processing plugins, EQ, dynamic compression, gating, modulation FX, insert and send FX, as well as track and MIDI CC automation.
The weekend will involve hands-on experience supported by technical demonstrations from your tutor. Sessions will be supported by electronic worksheets, hand-outs and video content. Audio and MIDI material will be provided for some tasks, and in others you will create your own music using the software.
Participants should have a fundamental understanding of Mac OSX
The course is taught in a small group with a maximum of 10 people
