Saving Sessions - Pro Tools

Check out Bas Rutten's Liver Shot on MMA Surge: While saving a session can be a simple task, there are a couple of different ways you can save, which will be covered in this tutorial. Open a session in Pro Tools. One easy way to save is to navigate to the top menu bar and click File -- Save. If you've already named the session, this will automatically save the entire session as the name you specified before. Otherwise, you will be prompted to name the session. You can also press Command+S to Save. If you click File -- Save As, you'll be able to rename the session. This can come in handy if you want to either save the same session as a different name OR save different versions of the same session, which is nice if you have different mixes of the same song. You can choose Save Copy In to save your session to be compatible with another program. For instance, you might want to save your Pro Tools 9 session so you can open it in Logic. You can also save sessions to be compatible with older versions of Pro Tools.? Choose what kind of version you want to save in the Session Format drop-down menu. To save for another program such as Logic, choose Latest. Also, make sure the All Audio Files button is checked under Items to Copy. Another nice option is the ability to save your session as a Template. Click File -- Save As Template to save your tracks and plugins for future use. You'll then have the ability to save this new template within any of the Pro Tools template categories, or you can make a new category. Read more by visiting our page at:
