The release of Pro Tools 2018.7 has brought several new features which are mostly aimed at speeding up workflow in cases where an action had to be done over and over again. In this free video tutorial, brought to you with the support of Avid, Pro Tools Expert team member Julian Rodgers demonstrates the convenience and faster workflow offered by three of the new features offered by Pro Tools 2018.7.
Search For Insert
Also applicable to input and output paths, sends and side chains, by clicking on an insert slot or path selector and typing a search can be performed. By pressing Tab the search field can be displayed before typing. Up to 20 results are displayed based on the search string entered. In the case of inserts both individual Inserts or Track Presets can be recalled.
Menu Enhancements Using Control
By using Control on a Mac or Start on a PC while making selections from the output, sends, clip list menu or mapped output busses it is possible to make or remove multiple assignments from a menu in one operation.
Rather than having to make individual selections and reopen the menu for subsequent selections, the Rulers view, Edit window view, Mix window view, Edit window toolbar, Transport window and Workspace Browser windows all now have checkbox based menus which allow easy setup in a single operation.
See these new features in action in the free video tutorial.
