“DVS – Navigation” SoundFlow package

SoundFlow app store

With SoundFlow it is possible to automate your Pro Tools workflow. It can speed up repetitive tasks. One of them, which I often use, is jumping around your session. Copy/pasting clips from one location to another. For that reason I made a Navigation package that helps storing the selected track and selection. Either or both can be recalled when needed. This package is now available from the SoundFlow app store for free. Go to the SoundFlow app store and search for “dvs”.

A SoundFlow account is needed to install the package. Trial version of SoundFlow is available.
