Inserts & Sends:
1. Plug-ins insert on the insert section. 8 can be used per channel. Selecting a plugin will look as follows.
2. All plug-ins in Pro Tools have the same basic dialogue options at the top of the window. Here you are able to load any presets, bypass the plugin and enable automation.
You can remove a plug-in by clicking on the name in dialogue section and selecting no insert. This is also how to remove a send.
3. Sends are set up in a similar way to inserts. However, instead passing audio to a plugin in series, sends output in parallel to the channel via a bus that is defined as you set up the send.
After creating a send a pop up channel fader will appear to control the volume of the send. The pop out channel also has the controls for pre/post fader send and send panning.
