    Hi,
    I just checked out the sample video for Pro Tools for Voice Overs and you know, the fundamental flaw in these kinds of ‘tutorials’ is the absence of DEMONSTRATION.

    If I wanted to learn how to drive a car and someone ‘told’ me about the gear stick, what the steering wheel did, where the brake was etc, but never actually ‘showed’ me how to drive, I don’t think I’d get my drivers license in a hurry.

    I work in media production using Pro Tools and I can’t afford time off to go and learn more at a school, so these kinds of ‘self learning’ tools would be perfect if I could actually learn something from them.

    Sorry for the rant. . . Great blog, I read it every day – THANKYOU!

    Cheers, Simon

    Hey Simon,

    If you’re after some tips I’m a very proficient user of the product. Head over to the FXpansion forum and ask away.

    :)

    Thanks for reading (and ranting!) Simon.

    Just out of curiosity, how do you think they should approach it instead?

    Thanks for the advice Ashley, I’ll check it out :-)

    Unless, the ‘Producing Voiceovers’ sample video was significantly different from the rest of the material, I guess I’m after actual workflows and practices – not just stuff I can get straight from the manual.

    It’d be great to have these kinds of video tutorials centre around actual sessions (or at the least very typical mock ones) – from start to finish.

    I have my hands firmly on Pro Tools operation and although there’s always some new trick or shortcut key to learn, I know it very well. So, shortcut keys and the anatomy of Pro Tools is not exactly what I’m after (and I’m guessing many others as well).

    It’s funny, I was just reading an article from Australian ‘Audio Technology’ magazine, where a guy was commenting on the unfortunate extinction of the ‘studio apprenticeship’ and these days in their place are audio schools which are fundamentally limited to teaching ‘outside’ the studio! It’s kinda crazy when you think about it – schools where you learn all relevant stuff but for the most part, only technical/theoretical information and little (if any) ‘hands on’ or ‘over the shoulder’ training.

    I said to my wife this morning “I’d KILL for apprenticeship style training” but as I’m working full time, I can’t afford to take time (or pay) to go to ‘school’ to further my skills – so, that’s where these training videos (if produced properly) would be worth their weight in GOLD!

    Anyway, look you got me going again Stiff – over to you if you’ve got any ideas.

    Thanks again, Simon.
