Default Places for learning Pro Tools

Pro Tools classes are expensive. Has anyone tried sites like Pro Tools Expert? They seem to have a large community and I was just wondering if anyone could speak about the quality of their videos as compared to their cost?

Pro Tools Expert is an excellent resource. I also like Groove3 very much.

The exact same sites I would also recommend. Youtube is another(and free) resource that has a surprising number of videos(some of which are lousy, but there's plenty of good ones too)

While I know the concept of reading is considered a bit outdated, but there is a lot of good info in the Pro Tools manual...

Just rockin'...what more is there?

Simpler, faster method not popular with the diy crowd. Rent a few sessions at a small daw-centric studio that has a PT ninja for an engineer. Instantaneous feedback and hands on experience wins every time. You will have a head start on your further diy adventures for a small few hundred dollar investment in yourself.

Only if you print it.

Primorudy: The manual is really good, but if you're a visual learner (or if you need to learn general workflow as much as the program itself) then Groove3 is excellent. You can even sign up for an all-access pass, it's $15 per month to stream unlimited videos from any section. I find it odd that you're looking for videos, when you have a link to a tutorial site in your signature.

A good way to benefit from this is to have him watch you follow an assignment such as "OK lets create 3 audio tracks and a couple of instrument tracks," then lets add a send to the 3 audio tracks, and an insert on one of the instrument tracks" etc. If he watches you do this and can show you what you might want to do to make things smoother/faster, it's worth it's weight in the dollars spent!

It's a way to avoid at least some beginner mistakes that are hard habits to break.
