Spot Mode

An editing mode found in Pro Tools software. When you move an audio region, or pull an audio file out of the audio regions list (on the right side of the edit window) a dialog box will pop up asking you to enter the location for the region. Once you input that it will drop it precisely there for you. Spot Mode is ideal for working with sound effects and things that are being spotted to picture. Once you have your session synchronized to the time code you can just enter the time code value for the region and it’s right on. If you spot a region over another region the first region will be cut off at the point where the new region starts and/or ends. The three other major editing modes in Pro Tools are Shuffle Mode, Grid Mode and Slip Mode.
