Check out Bas Rutten's Liver Shot on MMA Surge: After you've started your Pro Tools session and want to get working on your song, you'll need to add regions to your timeline so that you can create music. The regions provide the content of the audio in your project. They can come from the region bin after you record or import them.? Start off with a session that has some empty tracks and some regions in your bin. You can access the regions bin by clicking on the arrow in the bottom right corner of the window.? Select a region from the bin. Click and drag it onto the timeline where you want it to be. When dragging regions onto tracks in your timeline, it's important to be aware of which mode you're in. These can constrict where you are able to place the regions.? You can see the current mode in the top left corner of the window.? The grid mode will snap your regions to the nearest time mark on the grid.? The spot mode gives you freedom to put regions at any location on the timeline without restrictions.?The shuffle mode automatically snaps it to the nearest region, and if there aren't any regions yet it will put it at the very beginning.?
