Pro Tools Essentials & Music Production with Aidan Cunningham takes a comprehensive look at the main functions of the hugely popular Pro Tools software. The course is tailored for those who are both relatively new to Pro Tools, and those who are users of the software but wish to advance their skills. The aim of the course is to quickly familiarise students with the many features available within the software. This course is delivered by AVID Certified Pro Tools Expert and renowned Recording and Mixing Engineer Aidan Cunningham.

By the end of the 6 week course, students will be able to set up and navigate Pro Tools sessions with ease, allowing them to Record, Edit, and Mix any type of track consisting of recorded audio or virtual MIDI instruments.

The course will also incorporate extra Editing and Mixing techniques, enabling students to achieve greater sonic results from their own musical productions. Each student will have their own independent workstation to carry out class exercises, and to practice on the Multitrack Sessions included with the course.

Students on this course will be entitled to a student discount on the Avid Pro Tools software. They will also receive full access to Pro Tools Essentials online course, available through Sound Training Online.
