Learn How To Get Tighter Performances
In 2 Weeks!

Drastically Improve Your Performances!

Take your live performances to the next level by mastering the amazing time based editing features in Pro Tools. Learn the ins and outs of quantizing audio using the extremely powerful Beat Detective and Elastic Audio engines.

Using a real world production as your course material, you will learn how to edit existing performances and to create a flawless feel and groove you've been searching for. 

Learn what it takes for your live tracks to mesh seamlessly with your preproduction and programming. Take your recordings up to a professional level by tightening timing and locking in rhythmic elements in a creative and musical way. 

This online course is project based, meaning you will be working with a real world production that grows from the writing session through to the final production that's ready to be mixed.

Throughout the 2 weeks, you will edit and tighten performances from the band’s final multi-track. This includes comping and tightening the final drum takes, pocketing the background vocals, creating doubles and extracting and applying grooves to performances to create a cohesive groove throughout the song. All the while using it as a way to improve your speed and effortlessness in Pro Tools Editing. 

Speed up your editing process by learning how to seamlessly navigate the Pro Tools time based editing workflow.

Now that the song has real vocal takes and instrumental overdubs, it's time to start comping performances, tightening grooves and cleaning up the song arrangement.

The Song You'll Be Working On


Kid Runner - "Don't Change Me"

Fab Dupont Masterclass

Nothing about Kid Runner is typical, from their truly collaborative writing process to their live show filled with instrument changes and electronic gems. Within their first year, Kid Runner went from bedroom demos to National TV commercials, and the momentum didn't stop there.

Their huge synth hooks, shout along anthems and energetic live show has landed them opportunities to perform with The 1975, The Griswolds, Capital Cities, X Ambassadors, Kitten, Knox Hamilton and more! They played Fashion Meets Music Festival in late 2014 where they shared the stage with artists such as Local Natives, New Found Glory, Cold War Kids, Switchfoot and countless other national acts! It's safe to say that it's been a pretty awesome start for this up-and-coming alternative pop band!
