Pro Tools Courses

 

Pro Tools is the most widely used Digital Audio Production system in the world. The hardware and software was developed by Digidesign, a division of Avid Technology, and is used for recording and editing in music production, film scoring, and film/television post production.

Avid manufactures systems that fit any budget, from $200 to $2,000,000. Because of the standardized software, these systems are all compatible with each other, which allows the user a great deal of flexibility.You can record in a professional studio with a fully loaded Pro Tools system – save your session to a hard drive and work with it in your bedroom on your $200 system – move back and forth between any number of Pro Tools facilities. This puts world class production at the fingertips of anyone with Pro Tools know how.
