The workflows used for Pro Tools tracking and overdub sessions are vastly different. For example, when you're cutting your tracks on a console, Pro Tools acts as a capture recorder with faders and panners zeroed. The console is used for mixing, adding effects, and sending cue mixes to the talent. But the next day when you move to overdubs this all changes to an in-the-box scenario where Pro Tools is the recorder, mixer, and more. This lets you record overdubs in a more affordable environment like a smaller home studio. The setup time when moving between these workflows can cut into your creative flow but not if you're organized. The following tutorial will take you through preparation, execution, and other best practices for quickly moving from tracking to overdubs.
