Part II: Recording in Pro Tools > Working with Tracks

Chapter 5. Working with Tracks

A track is a designated space in a recording system that’s assigned to carry a single audio signal. Tracks let you direct the flow of audio into your system, through DSP effects, and then back out to your ears and/or mix-down machine. Every audio or MIDI signal that comes into Pro Tools is routed to a track.

This chapter will show you how to work with tracks in Pro Tools. I’ll discuss the four basic track types—audio tracks, auxiliary inputs, master faders, and MIDI tracks—and then show you how to create them and assign inputs and outputs.

I’ll also discuss some of Pro Tools’ trackviewing features, such as adjusting track height and color-coding track waveforms, which can help you reduce monitor clutter and eye strain.

Finally, you’ll learn how to create and work with groups of tracks in the Mix and Edit windows.
