Part II: Recording in Pro Tools > Getting Ready to Record

Chapter 6. Getting Ready to Record

The instruments are plugged in, the microphones are turned on, and you’re ready to record. Well, almost. There are just a few more critical steps to take before you press the Record button. This chapter will take you through them.

We’ll start with a look at Pro Tools’ record modes: Non-destructive, Destructive, Loop, and QuickPunch. You’ll learn how to record-enable tracks, and how to set proper audio input and output levels.

Then we’ll discuss how to monitor audio in Pro Tools. I’ll cover monitor modes and show you some useful workarounds for minimizing monitor latency.

We’ll finish with a look at Pro Tools’ features for allocating hard drives and generating a click track for your session.
