The Essential New Pro Tools 2018 Shortcuts and Tricks You Need to Know
So without further ado, let’s dive in.
The sweet memories of NAMM 2018 are still fresh in our minds, with lots of interesting pieces of gear and software being unveiled one after another. One of the more unexpected new products from the show was Pro Tools 2018.1. Yes, that’s right: There won’t be Pro Tools 13.
This new naming scheme has been adopted to reflect the fact that from now on, there will be more new Pro Tools releases more often. “2018” is obviously the year of the release, and the “.1” part indicates that this is the release of January. (“2018.2” is February’s release, and so on.)
Pro Tools 2018.1 comes with more than just a name change, however. There are some powerful new features like Track and Insert Presets, new and improved comping features, several MIDI enhancements and more.
So without further ado, let’s dive in. As usual, all shortcuts mentioned are for Mac. If you use Windows, just replace “Cmd” with “Ctrl” and “Ctrl” with “Start”, and you’ll be good to go.
