Key Command: How to Create a New Playlist in Pro Tools

While there are many ways to create a new playlist in Pro Tools (and many options), well all know the power of key commands.  And one of my favorite is the ability to create a new playlist fast and easy.

The best scenario for this key command is when you are cutting a lot of vocals or voice overs and are trying various inflections and directions.  This one gives a quick and easy playlist to keep up.  Your clients will LOVE how fast you move!

 

To create a new playlist:

  1. Select Track
  2. Press Control+\ (Start+\ on a PC)

 

To duplicate a playlist:

  1. Select Track
  2. Press Control+Command+\ (Start+Control+\ on a PC)
