Learn guitar chords for FREE through our new game Chord Master: http://bit.ly/ChordMasterYT There are various monitor modes that you can work with in Pro Tools 9. Reasons for using one over another vary and depend on your project's specific needs. By default, Pro Tools sets the mode you're working in to Auto Input. To confirm this, navigate to the right of the top tool bar and notice the red button to the right of the record button, with a gray button below it. You could also navigate to the top menu bar and click Track -- Auto Input Monitoring. This allows Pro Tools to automatically recognize and differentiate between the audio going in and going out.? If you play back your recording, you will hear it. When you stop play back, you will also be able to hear any audio going into your computer via a microphone or other such device. To switch to a different mode, navigate to the top menu bar and click Track -- Input Only Monitoring.? This will make the gray button turn green. Input Only Monitoring only monitors the signal that is going into your computer. So, you're only hearing what's going in and not what's going out.? If you play back what you've recorded, you won't hear anything because this mode only monitors the audio going in. Knowing which mode you're in can help save you a lot of angst, because it can be frustrating if you can't hear your play back and you can't figure out the reason.
