Pro Tools is a strong multi-track editing program, but unless you’re willing to drop some change on a custom keyboard, it can be tough to learn all the keyboard shortcuts. I’m featuring one a week in an attempt to highlight the tricks I find most useful.
Import Session Data: Shift+Option+I
When I’m doing a session with multiple songs for a group, I try to keep each song in its own session. This always makes the edit and mix stages of the process much simpler. After the first song I’ll create a new session and import the settings from the first song. This shortcut makes things a bit easier.
