Part II: Recording in Pro Tools > Starting a New Session

Chapter 4. Starting a New Session

When you start a new project in Pro Tools, you start a new session. A Pro Tools session is analogous to a session in a real-world recording studio: It contains all the elements you need to record, edit, process, mix, master, and store audio recordings.

This chapter tells you how to start a new Pro Tools session from scratch. First, I’ll show you how to create a new session, and how to configure basic parameters such as sample rate, bit depth, audio file type, and I/O Setup.

Then, we’ll look more closely at I/O Setups. You’ll learn how to define new signal paths and map channels, and how to save your I/O Setups to use in later sessions. I’ll also cover how to create new session templates, and discuss sharing sessions between Pro Tools LE and Pro Tools TDM systems.
