A useful tip and an addition to the possibly better-known shortcut of Command+Click (Control+Click on a PC) to bypass plug-ins or sends simply by clicking on them in their insert slot. This variation bypasses all the plug-ins on a particular track up to the plug-in on which you clicked.
Does It Work With Alt and Shift?
Yes, it does! If you don't know what this means. The standard modifier behaviour in Pro Tools includes the following:
- Option/Alt - Do To All Tracks
- Option+Shift/Alt+Shift - Do To Selected Tracks
See these variations used in the mix window of an example session with a suspiciously full complement of plugins. Anyone would think the session had been built especially to demonstrate this feature!
