In this second part of the 2 part series about syncing Pro Tools systems, we go over syncing the systems over a network connection. This does have the advantage of needing 2 interfaces with Midi I/O, but does require a bit more setup and a single network cable or for longer distances, you can connect the systems into a common hub or switch.
The easiest way to format and partition a drive is to connect it to a “working” system, then format, and create the partitions through Windows Disk Manager (or other 3rd party software). The other option is to connect the drive into the new system, format and create the first partition as you install windows. Then after the system is up and going, you would come back and create the rest of the partitions.
One of the actual downsides of Pro Tools for Windows (yeah, yeah, insert sarcastic remarks here!) is the ability to have multiple versions of Pro Tools on the same system. This is thinking beyond having just Pro Tools 10 and 12 on the same system, But having different versions of 12 or 11 as examples. The way I have always dealt with this, is by having multiple partitions on the same hard drive.
Here is part 2 of the series. Here we are going to look at even more ideas to keep in your production toolkit. This set will contain some tips that include videos in order to explain them more in depth. So lets have a look at 5 more simple and efficient methods to speed up your production.
There are a million different workflows that users can employ within Pro Tools. Knowing the most efficient ways to reach your end goal, or maybe even just having a few tricks in your bag can make a huge difference. In part 1 of this series, I wanted to have a look at some of some simple and efficient methods to speed up your production.
In this video we go over a rather fun and creative trick. We take a kick drum track and trigger a sine wave it to beef up the low end of the kick. Then we take a snare track and use it to trigger white noise that is used to supplement the snare.
In this Free Tutorial video Kris shows us a very useful but often overlooked routing technique to use a reference track in your Pro Tools mix session.
Texture tracks are repetitive sounds that can be effected to fill space. They’re there if you need them, and easily removed from the mix if you don’t.
