Pro Tools – Shortcut of the Week (2009.07.13)

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.
