Part II: Recording in Pro Tools > Managing Audio Files

Chapter 8. Managing Audio Files

Pro Tools provides a number of smart file-management features that can help you work more efficiently and creatively. Mastering these tools for organizing and moving audio files will help streamline your sessions and free you to experiment with unique sound combinations.

In this chapter, you’ll learn how to locate and import audio files, and, if necessary, convert them to the correct file format. In addition, I’ll discuss how to import entire tracks and their properties from other sessions.

Next, I’ll show you how to export audio files from a session; then we’ll look at Pro Tools’ features for saving hard drive space, including compacting and deleting audio files.

I’ll wrap things up with a brief but important discussion on why you should always back up your audio files.
