Naming Tracks and Clips In Pro Tools

This is a pretty standard feature of Pro Tools and probably not very exciting for a lot of people, but paying attention to proper naming of your Tracks BEFORE recording is pretty essential if you are going to work with other studios, engineers, etc. and / or need to exchange Sessions during the various stages of a song’s production. The bottom line is this: people (who might possibly hire you again in the future) appreciate organization when a Session is given to them to continue working on. In this Tutorial, I will cover how to rename a lot of Tracks quickly, without using a mouse. I will also cover how to rename Clips just by using a keyboard shortcut, as well as the extra information that is possible to Edit, or simply view. with Pro Tools 11.
