Today I’ve got more basic video on how to create a click track in Pro Tools. As I mentioned in The Importance of Pre-Production, recording your music to a set tempo is a good habit to develop. It may be helpful to read that article first, then watch this video.

Tomorrow I’ll be posting a video about how to get more sounds out of your click track. (Let’s face it, not everyone wants to have a wood block blasting through the headphones.) 

Do you use a click track? What advice or tips do you have? Leave a comment.

      Hey Brent. It looks like you have one more setting you need to change. Go to the Setup menu at the top, then click on “Click/Countoff…” It’s near the bottom. When that window comes up, you have three options for listening to your click track – During playback and record, Only During Record, and Only During Countoff. Yours is probably set to the third one. I would set it to “During playback and record.” That ought to fix it.
