Part 1 of this free tutorial demonstrated how to use Aggregate IO and IO Settings to optimize your system when jumping from tracking to overdubs then mixing. In part 2 you'll learn how to build sub and stem buses into your IO setup to set up existing sessions for mixing inside the box.
Who Should Watch This Tutorial?
- Advanced users who jump between multiple systems in their tracking, overdub, mixing, and mastering work
- Beginners who want a deeper understanding of Pro Tools IO Setup and Playback Engine
- Any user who wants to build a deft IO setup that can be used to quickly subgroup and stem their tracks when mixing
It's a simple matter to create buses for use in any Pro Tools session, the secret is to build it in a way that makes it easy to use. By maxing out your 128 standard buses, you can force any new buses into a secondary list that sits squarely on the screen and doesn't run to the centre of the earth. If these new buses don't include sub-paths, it makes for a clean and easy way to access your bus lists for subgrouping and stemming out your tracks.
