Today Fabi our skateboard loving Rock Imaging Director will show you how to handle extremely complicated music cuts proper by producing a Monster ROCK branding using a FILTER Automation. You can use the same technique also while creating beatmixes, promos or anything where you need to cut music and it is a challenging task to do this proper. Paul Armstrong, the multi Sony Award Winner and legendary producer of XFM in London + benztown HotAC Imaging Director introduced this technique to Fabi. Since this day, Fabi is a real fan and wants to share his favorite trick with you. Check it out and see how the magic works :)….THE FILTER STRIKES BACK ! Today…

Hi guys, it’s Andre.

It’s now my 19th week at the Benztown Studios, since I started as volunteer.

When you start with Pro Tools, you’ll be massively overwhelmed by all the different functions and possibilities. There are so many techniques, shortcuts, plugIns and functions that need to be learned to control them. You might not need  every function, but there are definitely a lot of functions, which have to be learned to increase your workflow and your production.

In the following video, I combined two essential functions: Routing tracks to a bus and using automation.

In an earlier tutorial, Ryan already showed you how to create a bus, which helps you to save system power – (not everyone’s got a twelve core Mac Pro 🙂 – and allows you to have the same settings for multiple tracks withould inserting loads of plugIns in the tracks.

Another great function is automation. It’s activated by holding command + option + controlfor mac and control + alt + start for pc and clicking on the parameter you want to automize.

To switch to the track with the automation data, hold control + command – click for mac and control + start – click

Almost everything in Pro Tools can be automized. If you can click it, try to automize it 😉 – okay, not every clickable object in Pro Tools can be automized, but a lot of them.

By combining routing to an Aux Track and using automation, I was able to create the following video in a few minutes, instead of wasting a lot of time, using the same plugIn in every track and automizing every little parameter.

So enjoy the video. (more…)
