Pro Tools's bundled Effect Plug-ins are a huge part of the recording experience. They're inserted on almost every channel strip when you're tracking, mixing and mastering! In this rock-solid course – designed by audio engineer Joe Albano – they are explained and examined in great detail. Master your tools!
Avid's Pro Tools comes with over 50 bundled plug-ins. From equalizers to amp simulators, it's jammed with tools that can handle almost every recording and mixing situation. This course – presented in great detail by ProTools expert Joe Albano – puts these plug-ins through the rigors of pro audio processing, teaching you everything you need to know to use them confidently in your production work.
Joe divides this course into several discrete audio sections: EQ, Dynamics, Reverb, Delay/Modulation, Distortion, Imaging and more. In each section, he first explains the underlying audio concepts that are unique to the section. This serves to give the plugins a frame of reference that is essential to understanding their behavior. Then, he dives deep into each section's plug-ins to show you how, when and why to deploy them!
Effect plug-ins are powerful tools, yet they are one of the most overlooked and misunderstood areas of a rock-solid ProTools education. We urge you to spend some time watching this in-depth course to master the audio concepts that make these plug-ins a huge part of your "pro" audio production toolbox.
This course was produced in a previous version of Pro Tools. All of the content is relevant for the current version.

Pro Tools 201: Plugins Explored has been a great accompaniment to my Pro Tools 11 Ignite book, and two Pro Tools college classes. I would have liked to see some more advanced or even 3rd party plugins from the Pro Tools cloud store or elsewhere, but this course does cover the standard Audio Suite of plugins very well. Would be interested in a Pro Tools 12 course similar in nature to this one.

This was a great review. He covered every plugin that came with my Pro Tools 11. Explanations were very clear and concise, with nice examples. At times I would have liked a bit more explanation, but that is getting a little picky. This was great.
