The Pro Tools mixer is legendary –and mixing in Pro Tools is a required skill for anyone who wants to make it in the recording business. Learn all about basic mixing, signal flow and automation in this Pro Tools 10, Avid Learning Partner tutorial: Exploring the Mixer...
Mixers are the heart and soul of every DAW. Because they are virtually copies of hardware mixers they require that you understand how the audio signals pass through them. They have tons of channels strips and a multitude of outputs possibilities. There are also all kinds of complicated internal routing–not to mention FX sends and automation!
So where do you begin? In this tutorial mixer Scott Freiman takes you step-by-step through every aspect of the Pro Tools 10 mixing environment. You'll explore the mixer's layout and its signal flow. You'll see the different kinds of groups and understand why and how to use them as you build your mix. Next you'll explore the Inserts and Busses as Scott demonstrates the different ways you can apply FX to your tracks.
From there you'll get a lesson on setting up headphones mixes and an in-depth section demonstrating all the major Automation techniques and how to employ them into your mixing workflow.
So whether you're new to Pro Tools, studying for AVID Certification or simply brushing up on your Pro Tools 10 skills, this Exploring The Mixer course is designed to get you started on the right track!

Great course for speed grouping and bussing. Quick processess. Also the Creating tracks on the fly is better than going into I/O pages.

WOW! This one blow me away...away to success!! The automation and master fader sections were great. Learned lots of stuff. I'm definitely going to apply what I learned in the automation especially the clip gain and vol automation.
