Managing the Clip List or the Region List as it used to be called in older versions of Pro Tools is an important part of looking after your session. As you work, especially when editing, the list can fill up with a lot of clips. The size of this list can impact on the performance of Pro Tools, especially in older versions. If you notice Pro Tools is getting slower to respond, then it might be time to prune the Clip List.
Memory Locations can be used as markers on the timeline but they can do much, much more. I save selections in Photoshop all the time, here's how to do it in Pro Tools.

Once no one used DAWs, we went into a recording studio and mixed on a large console. Almost without exception they all had a standard set of features. Remarkably modern DAWs still lack some of those essential features such as phase reverse, low pass filter and trim.
However in Studio One there's everything you need to be able to power up your mixing workflow and creating that classic mixer mode, you can even add a VU meter for extra vintage mojo.
Here is our free Studio One tip to show you how to give Studio One that workflow.
A few days ago, my colleague Russ Hughes put together an interesting Production Expert post on the importance of mono compatibility. Given the home audio revolution taking place, more and more people are listening to music on single speaker solutions that sum the left and right sides together. This raises the question of how best to monitor stereo mixes for mono compatibility within Logic Pro X.
