    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....

    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.
