Pro Tools – Shortcut of the Week (2009.07.20)

leave a comment »

Pro Tools is a strong multi-track editing program, but unless you’re willing to drop some change on a custom keyboard, it can be tough to learn all the keyboard shortcuts.  I’m featuring one a week in an attempt to highlight the tricks I find most useful.

Enable or disable pre/post time roll: Command+K

Pre-roll is a great tool for recording punch-ins, allowing you to specify exact points for both the start of playback and the record start points.  I’ve always preferred this to manual punching, probably because I haven’t practiced it much.  Regardless, being able to toggle the pre/post roll is a guaranteed time saver in a tracking session; I always find myself flipping between the two modes.
