Quantizing Regions - Pro Tools 9

Check out Bas Rutten's Liver Shot on MMA Surge: You can quantize the regions in your Pro Tools session the same way you would quantize a MIDI track. This is a way of shifting notes over to snap them to the timeline grid of the track's tempo.? It will help you get perfect timing with your audio regions. This technique works especially well with drum and percussion notes.? Start off by selecting the region you want to quantize. It's important to know that when you quantize a region, Pro Tools will snap the beginning of the region to the nearest gridline. This can cause problems if your notes start later in the region.? Therefore, you'll need to cut up the region so that each audio wavelength is separate.? Press the Tab key to make your play marker jump to the very beginning of the next wavelength. Once your play marker is in the right spot, press the "B" key on your keyboard. This will split the region where you've marked it.? You now have a region that begins with the wavelength. Continue splitting up the region at the beginning of every following note. You can keep pressing Tab and "B" to do this.? Now select the regions you want to quantize. You can select multiple ones or just do one at a time.? Then go to Region--Quantize to Grid or use the hotkey Apple+0. The selected region will snap to the beginning of the closest grid mark.
