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.
