    does anyone here use pro tools? I just started a class in school on it and I had no idea it would be so hard.

    I have been using Pro Tools for 3 years, I highly reccomend it because of it's ease of use. It may take little time to learn, but it's worth it.

    Good Luck,

    Pro tools is really good, but if your just learning its quite a handful.
    In case you want someting more basic try Cubase vst
    or Cakewalk- much easier.

    I got a demo of Pro Tools but it says it will only run on windows 98SE and wont run on my Window 2000. Pretty weird sence 2000 is newer than 98SE. :(

    I use ProToolsFree on an older Mac 8600.
    It works quite nicely for home recording.
    Two problems that took me a long time to figure out were:

    1. When an audio CD is played the computer switched automatically to "CD sound in". If I then ran ProToolsFree it would not record until I manually went back and switched to "Audio in".

    2. When recording the process is very sensitive to hard disc speed and fragmentation. To avoid defragmenting my disc every other day I just built a partition (virtual disc) and record to that.

    A nice intro program that works on older machines and it is free!

    Been using Pro Tools for over a year.

    Kinda the industry standard - in the recording world.

    Works great for audio - not so great for midi.
