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

Digi 003 Controller- Issues with power sequence- Too Many Relay Clicks

This baby came in for a little inspection this week. The owner was worried that it was a ticking time bomb, as the start sequence would randomly take longer some days and not others. He mentioned, when cold, the unit could take 7-to 15 relay clicks to start. When warm and operating normally he would hear 3-5 relay clicks.

I was able to experiences this extended start up the first time I turned it on, I counted 7 clicks, but it did start. I turned it off and back on, and it took three clicks to boot.

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.

Clicking While Recording Every Two Minutes

Hi, I record Let's play commentary for a youtube channel. I use Audacity to record my voice and until recently, I have never experienced a single problem.

I recently bought a new computer, a HP Pavilion with 8GB RAM, and several sets of storage space, running Windows 10. I got all my recording software up; OBS for game capture, Logitech Quickcam for the face cam, and a Blue ICE Snowball mic recording on Audacity for the commentary; and started to go.

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.
