Great tips here! Navigation is something that can be very different in all the various DAW's. This really helped me learn all the ways to get around a typical Pro Tools session.

I'd not used Window Configs before, but now after this I'm going to start. Plus i've learn how to use Markers more for navigation. Very powerful tool. I'll be revisiting this course.

Excellent series. This course will definitely help you speed up your workflow. Pro Tools is full of shortcuts and navigation tricks. You will have a good handle on these after completing.

Getting to know Pro Tools shortcuts is essential and trying to do it reading the manual is kind of pain. This course save you lots of time. Excelent stuff.

I'm pretty competent with Pro Tools - but this course really did improve my workflow which allows me to work so much more efficiently. There were a lot of options here that I wasn't aware of, so this was well worth watching.

This is the video they should ship with ProTools. I thought I knew how to use ProTools until I watched this. Its actually a bit overwhelming to be honest, and you need to take the info in bite size chunks to absorb it all. Very useful, and if you can master all the techniques it will really speed things up in the studio.
