In this tutorial I use a standard delay plug-in and the busses to create a more unique delay feedback than the standard feedback control usually offers. Also, automated aux sends are addressed.

In this last creative gating tutorial a gate is used to make the snare drum pop out in a room mic track, making the room mic cleaner sounding and more usable in the mix. I hope you’ve enjoyed the series. Be sure to add a comment with any questions.

In this second creative gating tutorial a high-hat track is used to apply a rhythmic pulsing effect on a synth pad. As in the previous tutorial, the gate’s key input makes it happen.

This is the first if a three part series on the creative use of gates. All of them involve the use of a key or sidechain input. In this video, a low frequency tone is triggered by a kick drum in order to give the impression that the kick was deeper and/or recorded with more low end. It is a classic and useful effect, when used wisely.

In this video tutorial I create a reverse reverb effect in Pro Tools on an electric guitar. Reverse reverb was first used on analog tape machines by flipping the tape backwards, applying reverb to a part (and recording the reverb to a track), and then flipping the tape back. Its not quite as straight forward in the box, but its not all that tough either.

In this video tutorial I create a ping pong delay in Pro Tools using two mono delays and aux inputs. Although there are a bunch of ping pong delay plug-ins out there, creating your own is a great routing exercise.

In this video tutorial I revisit busses and sends, a topic from the Pro Tools Basics series, and make things a whole bunch easier with custom I/O settings.
