The Memory Locations feature in Pro Tools allows you to save and recall a selection. The Memory Locations Dialog Box can be accessed from Window menu or by pressing Ctrl-5. A variety of settings and properties are available in the Dialog Box. You can add a selection marker, edit it, and recall its name. These features allow you to save and recall selections in a logical way. For example, if you want to recall your Selections from the time you recorded it, you can open the Dialog Box, click the Memory Locations option, and enter the name of the previous marker. This will automatically use the settings you have set for the memory location.
There are two types of Memory Locations in Pro Tools. One type is a Marker, and the other is an editable region. Each type of memory location is unique, and can be used for storing any combination of parameters. In addition to markers, you can also create edit regions to help you manage a session. Using these options allows you to store different track names and parameter values for each individual track.
A Marker is a marker that you can add to the timeline using the numeric keypad. It is a useful tool to help you quickly locate a particular section of the song or record. However, dropping a Marker on the fly is not recommended because it can interfere with Memory Locations. Fortunately, there are some workarounds to this problem.
When you open the Memory Locations Dialog Box, the default setting is to have a marker at the last point in your selection. If you do not wish to have a marker at this point, you can change it in the General Properties field. Also, when you select a particular area, you can change its selection mark by clicking it. Another method is to double-click on it.
You can also make a copy of the selection by combining the Edit> Fades> Create command. With a mark at a significant point in your take, you can use this feature to make a fade-in effect. Once you have created your selection, you can delete it by pressing the Delete or Backspace key.
Although the Memory Locations feature in Pro Tools is helpful, there are some limitations to it. One of these limitations is that you can only recall one marker at a time. Therefore, if you are working on a large project, you may find it very difficult to keep track of all your markers.
In addition to a Marker, you can also use the Ruler. The Ruler is a tool that allows you to create multiple Markers. Alternatively, you can edit a marker with the ‘decimal point / number key / decimal point’ keystroke combination.
In addition to the Ruler, you can also add a memory location by pressing the Windows or Control keys. Both of these keys are available in both Mac and Windows versions of Pro Tools.
