Pro Tools Session Management Basics 3

Fade files are small audio files that Pro Tools creates whenever you use the Fade command. In this video you’ll see how fade files are generated and stored in the Fade Files folder and also what to do if your Fade files are accidentally deleted.

The goal of this tutorial is to teach you to describe the difference between an audio file and a fade file, to locate fade files on your drive and recover accidentally deleted fade files using the Regenerate Fades command.
