Requirements

Welcome to PRODUCING WITH PRO TOOLS FIRST!

In this course, we will use the real-world experiences of the award-winning instructor and university music business professor Dr. Jason Allen. But don’t be worried – Dr. Allen is best known around campus for keeping things simple, accessible, and useful.

Dr. Allen is a professional musician, top-rated Udemy instructor, and university professor. In 2017 the Star Tribune featured him as a “Mover and a Shaker,” and he is recognized by the Grammy Foundation for his music education classes. 

100% Answer Rate! Every single question posted to this class is answered within 24 hours by the instructor.

For years I’ve been teaching Music Production in the college classroom. These classes I’m making for Udemy use the same syllabus I’ve used in my college classes for years, at a fraction of the cost. I believe anyone can learn Music Production – and cost shouldn’t be a barrier.

Recently I was named as a semi-finalist for the Grammy Foundation’s Music Educator of the Year award because of my in-person university classes. Now I’m taking those classes to Udemy in an online format in order to reach more students.

In this class, we will focus on the new Pro Tools First software. This is a new version of Pro Tools that is absolutely free. It mimics traditional versions of Pro Tools, so if you learn Pro Tools First, you will be very comfortable working on Pro Tools or Pro Tools HD in a studio. Pro Tools First is a full-featured program, but it isn’t without its limitations. I’ll walk you through what those are, some ways you can deal with them, and how to use the program to produce and/or record your music.

In this class, we will cover:

  • Differences between Pro Tools First, Pro Tools, and Pro Tools HD
  • Advantages of Pro Tools First
  • Limitations of Pro Tools First
  • Downloading and Installing Pro Tools First for FREE
  • Setting up a session from a template
  • Creating a new session from scratch
  • Organizing a session
  • Importing audio tracks
  • Adding MIDI tracks
  • Using the XPand!2
  • Creating a multi-timbral synth
  • Saving and recalling your sound design patches
