Importing and comping multitracks


Recommended Posts

Hi here's something I've never done before and having trouble getting advice.


I've recorded a number of tracks at another studio where they use ProTools. The sessions are recording brass sections so there might be say 4 mics with a brass player on each and an ambient mic in the room. I need to import and comp these, but also they need to be multitrack sets i.e. they need to be edited as a group (like say a live drum kit). I have been presented with a load of files / takes which are rendered back to bar 1 so that I know where they go. How would I go about this? Anyone know of a video or somesuch?
