Part III: Editing Audio > Editing Basics

Chapter 9. Editing Basics

Using a visual interface to edit audio is perhaps the most powerful feature of hard-disk recording: You can use your eyes and ears to manipulate visual representations of audio with remarkable speed and precision. Pro Tools provides many tools for working in this visual environment. With a little practice, you’ll be able to transform raw audio material into streamlined final mixes.

This chapter introduces you to the basics of editing audio in Pro Tools. We’ll start off with some concepts such as non-destructive editing and playback editing. Next, we’ll talk about regions, and I’ll show you several tools for viewing and handling them.

We’ll also get into playlist editing, a feature that lets you create multiple arrangements of audio regions on a single track. And we’ll look at how Edit modes influence the movement of regions in a session. Lastly, we’ll discuss the Edit window’s rulers and the useful memory location feature.
