    Just found this - don't know what its like for creating / editing midis (I use Cakewalk) but hey, its free - someone might be interested.

    Would be interested in hearing from anybody who uses ProTools for their opinion on what its like for midi editing.

    Well for Digital Audio recording I and an engineer I know use a similar program. I've yet to use Pro Tools, though have been desiring to for some time(mainly for MIDI purposes though).
    My associate says there's not much difference between the two programs, and while I've researched about Pro Tools, I tend to trust his judgement mainly due to his over-extenuating research.

    The MIDI sequencing in this current program is sub-par, at least compared to utilities that are designed mainly for MIDI.

    So if you already have a reliable program that gets your MIDIs to your satisfaction, I wouldn't reccomend Pro Tools. Stick to what you have.

    TDM pro tools ?

    Hi im new here but i seem to remember trying a demo of TDM protools and it wouldnt work becuae i think you need a TDM enabled/equiped machine to run the software...though this free version may work without i am not quite sure.I wanted to try out the amp farm plugin by 'Line 6' which has many RAVE reviews..

    This version of PT runs on my P2-300 (just :) ), so it would probably run on your puter (they also has Mac version on the site, but I don't remember if it was OS9 or X

    I think Pro Tools is for Mac only. I'll stick with Cakewalk for Windows XP. It's awesome and very easy and intuitive to learn.

    Hi boards Im young producer/engineer that works with Protools. Most current protools systems are designed on XP os and Macs. The old systems had to be specialy designed by TDM. But anyway Protools is the elite in Digital Recording. It handles all your recording needs. It handles all of your digital signals. so it takes in your vocals, midi, and about any other signal. One thing about protools i like is that it enables you mix things from many other different programs. For my Masters I hook up my Tascam Dat machine and whats ever on the tape shows up on the tracks. this is also capables with other equippment like my roland digital audio workstation. the program you saw was just a demo. so it only gives you 32 tracks thats when the power of bouncing down comes in handy. i personally suggest it. i feel everyone should have protools and an mpc at least in there studio

    I work with Protools free. However it does not work with XP. The program only gives you 8 audio channels and 24 midi. i personally suggest it too.

    Any way at all to run Pro Tools Free on XP? I have a friend who has a Mac and he sold me on how great it is... but all of my comps have either XP pro or home. :'(

    There's no patch... upgrade... anything?
