    Well, there was a version (Pro Tools Free) available - may still be, for all I know - which didn't need external hardware, but I don't think it will run under XP.

    Actually, it's not really very good anyway. The main (some would say, only) advantage of Pro Tools is its use of external hardware to lighten the load on the CPU of your PC. This version is a real processor hog (not surprisingly).

    Quite honestly, I'd look at a more appropriate application.

    Unfortunatally Pro Tools Free will ONLY run on Windows 98SE and ME. Even with the compatibility settings turned on, it sill crashes. I've tried. :p

    The pay version works with XP though... :hit:

    If your gonna go with protools your better off spending the money on the hardware to run it... otherwise your best bet is another software program like cubase or cakewalk.
