Grab video code:
Male 1: We have four edit modes. So, we are going to go through what these edit modes are all about. So, I am going to start with spot. If we look at our screen here, we will go up to the spot. Now, why am I going to go to spot because when I was demonstrating the grabber down here, you saw me jiggling that region around?
Male 2: I did.
Male 1: Okay, well now that region is not where it was supposed to be. So, it is going to be completely out of sync. Now, luckily, when we are recording pro tools, where it records on the timeline on pro tools, it remembers that. So you can go back to it.
Male 2: Exactly
Male 1: That is what spot is for. So, we go to spot and we click on it with our little hand, look at that. It gives us the, tells us where it is now, if we look at this here
Male 2: Compared to where originally it was
Male 1: So, all we have to do is we click that little arrow and you will see these numbers, now match up with the original time stamp, we hit okay, go back to where it was.
Male 2: And so essentially I am back to where I started when I first started by
Male 1: Exactly and it puts it right back where it is supposed to be so, if you ever move a region around which is going to happen when you guys are really getting the feel for this and all of a sudden
Male 2: It seems like it is in the wrong spot
Male 1: Right, you have displaced it by a quarter note somehow
Male 2: Somebody’s late, somebody’s early
Male 1: Right.
I want to spot, your little bottom hand, click, click, and then it will go right back to where you need it to. Now, the second one we are going to look at, second mode is slip. Slip is very general and it pretty much just allows us to move very freely when we select, we could select anywhere, if we move around, we are not, you know, locked in. That is essentially what slip is all about.
And now, shuffle, which is an interesting one. When we go to shuffle, and we use shuffle a lot, when let us say, we need to condense a song and pull out a verse
Male 2: Right
Male 1: And we need everything to just go (demo) well, with shuffle, just look in the screen, we go in a shuffle now, let us say we want to highlight this. And we wanted to, we want the regions to come together from where we highlight it. Essentially, we want to pull a section now, and we want the two sections to glue themselves together.
If we look at the screen, we will highlight, we will hit the lid and now you will see, those two sections have shuffled themselves together.
Male 2: Right
Male 1: With shuffles, it is really useful as if you have to condense the timeline of a whole song, a whole arrangement
Male 2: Sure, it is too long, we need to cut it out.
Male 1: Absolutely, so that is where shuffle is really, really useful for so, once again, I am going to put your solo back to where is supposed to
Male 2: Thank you
Male 1: Not a problem. So, the last and final edit mode in pro tools would be our grid
Male 2: We talked about this earlier
Male 1: Yes, this is really editing in pro tools becomes easy. Now, like we talked about earlier, if you set up a click within pro tools as we show you how to do, that sets your grid to the tempo map in pro tools. So, essentially if you have entered the tempo in a click within pro tools
Male 2: You are in trouble in the editing stage
Male 1: Yes, the grid is useless at that point, you really would not get any benefit from it, so, if we take a look at the screen, you are really going to get a feel as to how this grid works. So, I have the grid setup to quarter notes so meaning that, when we look at our screen here, every time our playback cursor hits a line on the grid, it is going to be completely in sync and in time with our music so, you see what that looks like (demo)
Male 2: That is right on the money
Male 1: It is right on the money how all these, these little lines, all matched up with our quarter note click tat we programmed in our pro tools. So, that is it
Male 2: Then it helps us to edit these pieces together
Male 1: Certainly does. Because then at that point, we can look at well, where is the downbeat of that section well, hey, let us tale a look. We know, in a 2 bars in, we are going to be you know (demo)
There is another downbeat so, it just allows us to move stuff around really quickly when we have the grid map out like that
