It is well worth getting to grips with template sessions. With Pro Tools you can set up sessions that can be templates for other projects. These are really useful if you have a number of regular projects.
I also create a template session when I working on an album so that I can very quickly create a new session for each song. Put in the template what ever you might need like a click track, busses for effects and headphone monitoring, include any plug-ins you might want to use with the appropriate preset loaded.
Whatever you find yourself doing when you start a session, try to have it in your template so you don’t end up wasting time doing the same things over and over again. It is also worth have some template sessions with things like regular effects combinations and use Import Session Data to bring in the appropriate tracks.
You can even add audio and other media to your template sessions so if you using the same content in a regular job then keep these in your template too.
