Default Hi Looking for advise

In terms of a book to get me going on Pro Tools. I have Pro Tools for dummies and Pro Tools 101 and Ignite. Which is quicker to learn or does anyone else have any suggestions? Which YouTube video is a good start also? Thanks

I think videos are best personally so I'd look for those. If you're new to recording then you may need to read up on basic audio engineering.

Videos on either Cubase, Nuendo, Reaper , … well there are many more, but I think you get my drift.

PT Ignite is a very good book IMHO, but I also refer everyone to the following:
youtube(free, but some videos are better than others.......)
Lynda(pay but excellent)
Groove3(also pay but still worth it)
http://protoolsexpert.squarespace.com/ (also pay but still worth it)

In the end, the best way to really learn is by doing, over and over, to drill it in. An example is an excellent video by Russ Hughes(PT expert) called "Ninja drum editing"(or something like that). I filled a Post-it with tips and stuck it by my main screen to refer to. after editing 3-4 song drum performances, I was good to go

PT for dummies and PT 101 sounds like light reading, I would start from there and read them all to find out what's the next step.

Groove3.com has some good tutorial videos, it's not free though, around $100/year for all you can eat.

$15/month for all access streaming is great to get someone going, if they don't want to subscribe for an entire year. I subscribe for a month sometimes (like when I started using Reaper, or when I got ReVoice)

Also don't forget to investigate and ask around to see if there is someone in your area you could either go to, or have come to your place for even an hour. It's worth the cost to have someone answer your questions, and give you tips right there with the program in front of you.

Paying someone 50.00 for this is worth every penny, especially just starting out.

Then next I'd say the online videos, with reading about everything coming in dead last, unfortunately.....JMHO.

For musicians/songwriters i always liked "Gina Fant-Saez" pro tools book. It may not be up to date now but the workflow will still apply.
You can check the inside of it on Amazon
