Create a new stereo audio track(command-shift-N) or two mono tracksif using ProTools Free.
Name the track(s), make sure the inputs are set for L-R, or 1-2, or whatever inputs on your interface you wish to use.
Then click "rec" on the track(s) to make them record ready, press command- spacebar, then play your source.

What i/o do i need to hear my tracks through protools


It depends on what version of Protools you are using. And also on what it is running on, PC or MAC. Starting with v9 Protools is hardware independent. Which means and audio interface (I/O) should work just fine for listenning to tracks from protools. Depending on your computer it will support direct audio or core audio. make sure the interface supports ASIO as that is the standard and default way to go

Hello There, I just bought the Rode NT1-A, and I am trying to record in protools, but i'm not getting any levels whatsoever. I'm plugged in to an MBOX, in the XLR, I have Phantom Power turned on,...


It sounds like you have done everything right. It would be a good idea to check both the mic and Protools system separately. If you can, verify that the mic works using another device such as a mixer. Also try getting a level into Protools using another mic, preferably a dynamic which doesn't require phantom power. If you are trying to use an original MBOX under Windows 7 or the latest version of OSX then it may not work at all.

I can record voice, but no guitar. Just as many people on this forum, but i didn't saw a proper answer for my problem. I can hear my guitar im using pro tools SE. The light on my fast track lights up,...


In Protools go into hardware setup and make sure that your interface is being read properly. It may be set to something other then your fast track. Then, in the MIX window make sure that your input is set correctly. If your microphone is plugged into input 1, your input on your protools track should correspond to that.

Audiobooks sound like they are being read in fast forward mode. Song are good, just the audiobooks? Can I edit the audiobooks somehow?


Yes you can. Here are the steps on how to edit an Audiobook:

1. Find an audio-editing software which has the editing features you want, and download it. Audacity and Adobe Audition are two popular choices (see links in Resources).
2. Transfer the unedited reading of your audio book to your computer's hard drive (if necessary).
3. Open your audiobook file from inside your audio-editing software. Many audio-editing software programs come with automatic file conversion capability so that when an audio file is opened, it's automatically converted to a medium that the program can work with. If your software doesn't have this capability, you'll also need to download audio converting software. Choose software capable of converting the file type of your original recording to a file type supported by your editing software.
4. Play back and listen to the reading of your audiobook. Stop the playback in areas you'll need to edit, such as a word or phrase you stumbled upon, long pauses that should be shorter, extraneous talking, bodily noises or the sound of paper rustling. You can insert rereads of certain passages, silence or reduce the volume of loud breathing and background noise.
5. Save the reading of each chapter of the book as an independent file. Saving the entire book as one file will make indexing the book much more difficult. If the editing software you're using has a multiple track feature, you can copy and paste each reading of a chapter to its own track and save each track as its own file. If your editing software does not come with a multiple track feature, you'll have to keep a master copy of your audio reading then create a copy of this master. Open the copy of your audiobook and delete the reading of all but one chapter of the book, then save that one chapter. Keep repeating this pattern until all of your chapters have their own independent file.
6. Listen to the edited reading of each audiobook chapter all the way through to make sure that you've performed all the needed adjustments.

The recording level to my Mbox is very low for some reason. I am running Pro Tools LE and I have a shure 87a microphone. Every time I attempt to record a track, the input volume is incredibly low...


Make sure you turn the Phantom power on the Mbox2 on as the Shure 87A requires it being a condenser mic.Make sure you use XLR mic cables. These are just things to check on.

2488 to pro tools


There is no way to 'sync' with protools from the 2488. In order to use your 2488 tracks in protools you have to first export your tracks as wav files and move them to your computer via usb and then import them into protools.

To get Protools files into your Tascam 2488 you'll have to export your Protools files into mono wav files first. They must also have a sampling rate of 44.1KHz and can be either 16 or 24 bit. Then load these files into your 2488 via usb and import them into tracks on the 2488.
