In a new format we are producing videos offering tips and solutions to common problems in under a minute. In this free video tutorial we show you how easy it is to switch on snap to bars and beats in Pro Tools.
Slip And Grid Mode
Pro Tools doesn’t have a snap button, instead it has four edit modes. The equivalent of having snapping on is being in Grid mode, the equivalent of having snapping off is being in Slip mode. the mode buttons are in the top left hand corner of the edit window. You can change edit modes by hitting F 1-4.
Change Grid Resolution
To change how file the snapping is change the grid setting, just above the Nudge setting in the centre of the toolbar at the top of the edit window.
