Making a new Pro tools template for Film and 5.1 mixing. After I finish this I want to adapt to for Stereo use, so I want to make sure I make it perfect the first time.
I've been messing with it for about a week. It seems fully vetted at this point but surely there is something I can throw in to speed things up that I'm not thinking of.
Please throw in any suggestions you may have. Hope this makes sense
So far it consists of:
Each Track has essential plugins already inserted (Channelstrips, De-esser, L2007, Waverider, WNS , W43, UM226, etc...) some disabled to prevent CPU usage until needed. All tracks also have sends to several reverbs ( TLSpace, Revibe, Reverb One) already in place. All automation parameters are enabled and initial baseline setting have been written to all.
2 Dx Groups, 4 tracks each + 1 ADR each
2 mono DX Auxes (with Waves WNS)
Mono, Stereo and 5.1 Dx Reverbs
5.1 Dx Aux.
Dx VCA (controlling only 2 mono auxes to prevent screwing up threshold of WNS)
2 mono Vo tracks
Mono VO aux
4 Mono foley Tracks
4 Stereo BG tracks (with upmixer instered) + 5.1 BG track
FX group A- 2 mono, 2 stereo
FX Group B - 2mono, 2 stereo
mono, stereo, 5.1 reverbs
5.1 Fx Aux
Seperate VCA control for BG, Foley, FxA and FxB
2 stereo music
2 stereo music with Umpixer inserted
Stereo, 5.1 Reverbs
Dx, Fx, Mx, VO Subs feed 5.1 Full Mix Aux, Mix Minus, M&E all well as individual stems.
Tracks to Print:
Full Mix 5.1
Mix Minus 5.1
Markers & Window configurations:
Setup tons of Markers with custom window configurations to allow quick access to things like:
breakouts of vca groups
Automation of key RTAS/AAX plugins on Dx Auxes (WNS, EQ)
Frequently used audiosuite (RX2)
Wide/Narrow Channel view
Edit groups to conform sessions
Hmm....This probably reads like some kinda cluster!@#
What would you guys do?
