Elastic Audio is an essential tool for any composer or producer working in Pro Tools. It's ability to time stretch audio in realtime (Elastic Time) was enhanced in Pro Tools with Elastic Pitch -- the ability to quickly change the pitch of any audio. But, most people rarely explore the possibilities that Elastic Audio offers.
In Pro Tools 205: Elastic Audio, Pro Tools expert Scott Freiman walks through detailed examples of the many uses of Elastic Audio. Matching audio to tempo without changing pitch. Adding realtime tempo changes to your audio. Auditioning loops at tempo. Working with REX and ACID loops. Warping beats. Pitch shifting. These and many more techniques can help improve any session -- from a classical recording to a remix to a film score.
Scott covers all the basics, as well as all the hidden details of Elastic Audio. This is one Pro Tools course that you certainly don't want to miss!
Although this tutorial was created in an earlier version of Pro Tools, the techniques and concepts covered in this collection of tutorial-videos are timeless and relevant to Pro Tools 10 and beyond.

Scott has patiently put together a logical extension to the beat detective course. This series is for those engineers who are seeking to understand and apply some of the surgical tools for making time and pitch adjustments in Pro Tools.

good solid Elastic education. There are a couple of things near the end I would have done differently, like maybe group editing. but still, good stuff.

fun course! Seems like there is an audio issue with #16. You can hear the instructors voice, but not the music. Learned alot from this one!!!

I have now completed all but 2 Pro Tools 10 courses here on MPV and this course on elastic audio was one of the best. This is a powerful feature in Pro Tools, so if you are unfamiliar with it then you need to do yourself a favor and watch this video. It gave me a ton of creative ideas to manipulate audio tracks.
