Naming Tracks

When you create a new track, it is automatically given a name based on its track type ("Audio," "Aux," "MIDI," "Inst," "Master," or "Video") followed by a number.

When you record material into a track, Pro Tools uses the track name to automatically name audio files and their associated regions.

To rename a track:

  1. Double-click the track name (Figure 4.32).
