Is it possible to automate a click track?

I am using Pro Tools 12.8. was wondering if there is any way to create a click track to only run and then turn off after a few measures. I am recording with my friend who is playing drums while I am on guitar. We want to play our song live all the way through and want a nice click to begin with that ends after a few measures so that we can flow through the rest of the song. I am the guitarist and the engineer so I am unable to turn off the click. Thanks

Can't Get Rid of Clicks/Crackles with RX

I'm trying to get rid of some clicks and/or crackles in an interview with Izotope RX 6. I tried the 'click' and 'noise' and even 'mouth click' settings (with various tweaking of settings) but can't seem to get rid of these noises.
I've attached a sample of what I'm talking about. It's only on the left channel.
Any recommendations on how to get RX to get rid of this? I'm not well versed in the program and am reading up on it now but if anyone has experience with this program (or another?) and how to get rid of the noises I'd really appreciate it.

Question About Using a Backing Track + a Click Live

Let me preface this by saying that I'm completely new to the world of using a backing track live so any info is appreciated. My band wants to start gigging and we want to use a backing track to carry some of the extra instruments and vocals we can't reproduce ourselves on stage.

I use Ableton Live on my laptop and have the backing track mono panned hard left and the click track panned hard right. I'd like to be able to at least let the drummer have those in his ears while putting the backing track through the PA in stereo, simultaneously obviously.

Sync Alesis HR-16 w/Pro Tools as Click

Hello All,

I just found this forum.

I am a professional studio musician (drummer). I want to use my Alesis HR-16 as a click track and have the tempo driven from Pro Tools.

I've done this many times in the past but I don't know exactly how the engineer went about setting it up.

The studio I am going to do this in is running an older version of Pro Tools (8.2 I believe) on a Windows machine. I'm trying to find some instructions that I can share with my engineer buddy so we can get this working.

Programming a click track to slow down gradually (ritard)

Is it possible in any DAW? mine are DP7, reaper, PT7. As far as a i know i can't do this, and just shut the click off when sections like that come up, and let the band handle the timing. I'd be great if there was a function or work-around that i don't know about, so we could define the slowdown if needed.
