Getting started with how to change Track Height in Pro Tools

Pro Tools is a software that lets you produce, record, edit and mix audio as well as MIDI performances.

After we are done with the recording stage of a production, we will get into the editing stage.

When editing, we might encounter situations in which we need to change the height of a track in order to see the waveform better.

When mixing, we could also need to change the height of several tracks in order to see them all on the timeline.

Today we will learn how to change Track Height in Pro Tools:

 

  1. Open or create a new Pro Tools session:

Track Height in Pro Tools

 

 

2. Locate the track area where the name is shown:

Track Height in Pro Tools

 

 

3. Look at the lower part of this area:

Track Height in Pro Tools

 

 

4. Click and drag this lower boundary of the track in order to expand or reduce the track height:

If we click and drag down, the track height is incremented as:

Track Height in Pro Tools

 

 

If we click and drag up, the track height is reduced as:

5. Alternatively, you can use the key command Control+Option+arrow up/down (Mac) or Start+Option+arrow up/down (Mac) to modify the height of all tracks on the session as:

Track Height in Pro Tools

 

 

6. You can also use the key command Control+Option+Command+arrow down (Mac) or Control+Alt+Windows+arrow down (PC) to automatically set all tracks to the same height so that they all fit on the timeline:

For the purpose of this tutorial we only have one track, therefore it will resize it to fit the screen.

If we had more than one track, they would be resized as:
