MUS 131 Pro Tools II

Credits: (2)
The Pro Tools II course expands upon the basic principles taught in the Pro Tools I course and introduces the core concepts and techniques students need to competently operate a Pro Tools system running mid-sized sessions. Students learn to build sessions designed for commercial purposes and improve the results of their recording, editing, and mixing efforts. The hands-on exercises provide experience setting up sessions, importing media, working with digital video, spotting sound effects, using loop recording and MIDI Merge techniques, working with virtual instruments, warping with Elastic Audio, applying Real-Time Properties, creating clip loops, applying signal processing, using automation, and using submixes and track groups to simplify a final mix. Together with the first course in the series, Pro Tools I, this course provides the training required to prepare for the Avid Certified User: Pro Tools certification exam. Prerequisite(s): MUS 130  and permission of department. Students must purchase the AVID Book to be able to take the certification exams.
