About Inserts

Pro Tools provides five insert slots on each audio track, auxiliary input, and master fader channel strip. Inserts can be either hardware inserts or software plug-in inserts.

In terms of audio signal flow, audio travels through the inserts section of a channel strip sequentially from top to bottom (Figure 12.15). Therefore, a plug-in inserted in a higher position will deliver an effected audio signal to a plug-in inserted in a lower position. For example, if you insert a reverb below a delay, the audio signal entering the reverb will already have delay on it. You can change the order of inserts by dragging them up or down (Figure 12.16).
