Overview

These days, manipulating and editing beats is one of the most important functions of a DAW, and it's one that Pro Tools excels at. Working with Beats in Pro Tools: Skill Pack teaches readers how to use the industry-leading beat manipulation tools Pro Tools software such as Beat Detective, the Beat Inspector, and Sound Replacer. It includes hands-on exercises to take readers from the novice stage to being able to perform advanced beat manipulation and editing. A key part of Working with Beats in Pro Tools: Skill Pack is the CD-ROM included with the book. It's full of sample content and examples that you will use to build a song and, in the process, learn all the beat manipulation tools of this dynamic and flexible software. Unlike other books with companion discs, the source files on every Skill Pack CD-ROM are an essential part of the book's tutorials - they are not there as mere examples, but are the building blocks from which users construct the projects. The result is a fully integrated learning experience.

Meet the Author

Andrew Hagerman has been a professional musician and teacher for the majority of his 40+ years, beginning his musical life at the early age of eight as an aspiring tubist and continuing to study at Northwestern University in Chicago. During his time there, MIDI and computer music were in their infancy, and Andy recognized the usefulness of music technology in aiding the creative process. Andy had the opportunity of learning the new technological tools of the trade as they were being invented and refined, and his quest for the best in audio and music technology ultimately brought him to use and teach Avid's Pro Tools. As a performer and arranger, Andy has worked with numerous ensembles of all types, including many years of playing at Disneyland, Walt Disney World, and Tokyo Disneyland. As a composer, he's active in the creation of planetarium and science center productions, and his work can be heard worldwide. With a passion for teaching, Andy has also worked as the Associate Course Director of Advanced Audio Workstations at Full Sail Real World University in Winter Park, Florida, and has authored seven books on audio production and Pro Tools. Andy currently manages Avid's Asia-Pacific Training Partner Program, working with excellent educational institutions throughout the region to offer the highest level of audio and video training to the next generation of creative professionals.
