Hooking Up Your Equipment

If you’re reading this book, I assume you have a working knowledge of Pro Tools and are able to perform basic recording, editing, and mixing functions. I will not go into the setting-up of the normal audio hardware that came with your system. If you have not already set up your basic Pro Tools system, please refer to your user’s guide provided with the system. If you would like more detailed information than the literature that comes with Pro Tools, you can refer to your manual and to the companion book in this series—Pro Tools Power!, by Colin MacQueen and Steve Albanese, where you will find detailed information on the operation of your Pro Tools system. Pro Tools for Film, Video, and MultiMedia will go into detail about operations related to video and post-production only.

That said, some special hardware requirements must be met in order to work with video. A synchronization device must be plugged in and configured. Video monitors must be hooked up and provided with images to display. If other tape decks, such as VTRs, DATs, or MDMs are involved, then you must connect and configure a 9-pin machine control or MIDI Machine Control (MMC). In addition, you must set up and configure any DV video equipment.
