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.
Set and enable pre/post time roll: Option-Click with Selector before or after selection
This is a follow up to last week’s shortcut, and an easy way to adjust the pre and post roll times. Don’t forget that Command+3 will get you over to the Selector tool. Again, pre-roll is a great alternative to manually punching!
