Sample Plots in Avid Express Pro

sample plot.gif


Finding specific audio cues to edit around are a very important part of making you program flow. You may need to find a specific beat of music or isolate a particular word that someone is saying. Your best tool in Avid for achieving this is the sample plot. Accessing the sample plot through the fast menu in your Avid timeline can really slow down your workflow. The best way to speed up this process is to map the sample plot to your keyboard. The way to do this is open your Avid Command Palette and turn on the menu to button reassignment. Now open your keyboard settings and determine which button you would like to key this shortcut. I like to key it to something that is easy to remember so I chose Shift+S. If you choose a shift function just hold down the shift key and click on the key you want to map the sample plot to. Now navigate to the fast menu in the timeline and select sample plot. You will see it jump to the key that you have chosen and you are on your way to quicker and more efficient editing.
