Pro Tools is the industry standard tool for audio production, and Pro Tools effects have a reputation for being extremely professional and high quality; in fact, the effects are one of the features that draw new users to the software. There are many books available on Pro Tools, but until now, none that deal specifically with the effects processors and plug-ins and how to use them effectively. MASTERING PRO TOOLS EFFECTS: GETTING THE MOST OUT OF PRO TOOLS' EFFECTS PROCESSORS offers master-level lessons, tips, and advice on using the most essential built-in plug-ins that come with Pro Tools. This book offers detailed descriptions about what each effect is and does, how to operate each effect, and when to use the effects, with tutorials on how to get the most out of the effects in audio productions. Whether you're a musician, composer, audio student, new Pro Tools convert, or anyone else involved in audio production, this book is for you.
