Memory Locations. To lots of people they are markers, that’s true but they can be much much more. The system of memory locations in Pro Tools is surprisingly sophisticated and can do far more than just locate a point on the timeline.
All three types of Memory Locations (Marker, Selection, and None) can store and recall any combination of the following parameters…
Number - Change the number to overwrite an existing Memory Location, or to reorder Memory Locations in the Memory Locations window.
Name - Enter a descriptive name for each memory location.
Zoom Settings - Recalls the horizontal, audio, and MIDI zoom values for audio, MIDI, and Instrument tracks.
Pre/Post Roll Times - Recalls pre- and post-roll times (but not whether they are enabled). This property can be stored with a Selection Memory Location to recall record and play ranges along with pre- and post-roll.
Track Show/Hide - Recalls which tracks are hidden. Use this property to display groups of tracks for editing and mixing.
Track Heights - Recalls all Track Heights. Use this option along with Zoom Settings to recall edit environments that are suited for particular tasks, such as editing down to the sample level or trimming MIDI notes.
Group Enables - Recalls which Edit and Mix Groups are enabled. This option is helpful in re- calling groups for particular edit and mixing oper- ations, such as muting all drum tracks or fading a stereo pair.
Window Configuration - Recalls a specific Window Configuration. This option is helpful in recalling specific Window Configurations to facilitate editing or mixing tasks.
