Producer Ben Lindell shows you how to produce a track with his midi controller and the built in Pro Tools virtual instruments (Boom, Mini Grand, Xpand & Vacuum)
He starts with a simple piano idea and adds drum machines, bass synths, pads and a solid 8 bar groove that’s ready to be arranged into a full song.
He also explains how he uses mixing techniques early in the production stage to shape and build tracks together.
Learn how to:
Work with MIDI in Pro Tools (don’t listen to the Logic-heads, Pro Tools has equally great MIDI everything)
Record, edit and quantize while maintaining a natural human feel
Mix as you produce
Navigate presets and then tweak to taste
Head-bop like a pro
Avid Mini Grand, Boom, Xpand, Vacuum, AIR Vintage Filter

ok so this a bit of an older video as we can read 2012, are some of the comments dates... so it's safe to say part two is never coming... a bit sad, as there are at least 3,000 members on this web site meaning if everyone paid for their subscription at the cheapest rate 100$.. (summer sale) its over 300k budget pro year... minimum. So 2.1 million dollars later... part 2 hasn't been recorded... I bet the session got lost and Ben can't make part 2... lol!! Cause that happens.
well here's to waiting on a broken promise... (Don't go stealing that for a song now people..)

Also why not show how to setup a proper send and return reverb, so you can send multiple tracks to the plate?

Nice video. Serves it's purpose -- demonstrating Pro Tools' midi capabilities. I just wish you'd shown some of the samplers' functions.

@benlindell: thanks ben, but my version ProTools 11 shows only the standard ones, the Groove Clipboard below is empty, saying "no groove templates found)...
benlindell •Monday, July 28, 2014
@thomasweigl it's built into Pro Tools Event Quantization, you just need to select MPC Style Grooves from below the standard Quantize Grid values.

Great video, Ben. I'd like to see how you develop this groove. Would you consider using a delay on the snare at the end of the loop? What about some panning or stereo modulation to create movement within the different parts? Really looking forward to your next video.
