ProTools Prefs & Database Helper

Product logoI haven’t tried this, but if you have frequent ProTools probs, you might give this shareware a go: ProTools Prefs & Database Helper (Mac 10.4.x). It finds-&-deletes Digidesign databases (.ddb) and preference files (.plist) to help debug Pro Tools perturbations.

Daniel, ProTools takes time to learn, but set-up is easy: Install, import some audio, and start working. Transom has tonsa tools that might help:

Transom Tools: A Beginners Guide to Pro Tools

Transom Tool: Pro Tools Shortcuts

Transom Tools: PRO-TOOLS: The Mix

Transom Tools: Voice Editing with ProTools Free

Transom Tools: Editing/Mixing: Digital Editing Basics

More at Transom Tools:

I had to reinstall pro tools onto my Mac but now I am not able to get pro tools to launch. Is there any help out there?

John, there’s two many variables (w/ Mac & PT) and too little info (from you) to eval wuzzup. But here’s a go-to url at DigiDesign that sometime helps:

Mac OS X Requirements with Pro Tools

and running this has solved a PT-not-launching prob for many folk, including me:

Every time i try yo use my audio suite in pro tools, such as increasing gain, it just tells me that there is an error. Can anyone help me?

Chris, you’ve provided almost no info, so we can’t be of much help. What version Pro Tools? What platform, Win or Mac, and what vers of that OS? Did you use above app to trash Prefs and DBs? Does this happen for every Audio Suite plug, or just some? And most importantly: what’s the error message and number?

But this is NOT a place to find PT help, in any case. Do check the links above, And once you get that error message/number, do a search for it at:

I am using Protools 10 with my IMAC(LION). I am using the “pitch shift” for the first time and need some assisitance. I am attempting to detune an existing session audio track 1 whole step. In the pitch shift box I set the coarse control down two semitones & clicked “render”. The processing bar appears & it looks as though I’m good to go. However, when I play back the audio track, it begins fine(down 1 whole step) but after 10 seconds or so it continues to detune down to a crawl. It does not hold the desired lowered pitch throughout the track duration. Please advise or trouble shoot for me. Thanks, Greg Crowe
