    could anybody tell me what a protools engineer (as written on many cd`s) exactly does?
    maybe a naive question but in my country the producer is often the protools engineer (cause of the budget...)

    thanx :confused:

    ......tracking into PT, be it live, or after,
    ......completely re-arranging the song before the band gets back
    ......actually making the beginning and end of the song cool, by cutting a piece out of the middle and putting it there (gapeless, seemless)
    ......playing with the bands girlfriends, while they're in the other room trying to work.....

    or maybe that's just me....
    :cool:

    oh yea, i forgot, saving the session so that when the A&R guys tell the producer it sucks and they have 24 hours to re-mix it, it's not problem. You hit open file, and touch it up.
