Re: ProTools vs. Logic
I've been using pro-tools for a long time. Any other program seems weird to me. With that being said. PT has it benifits, but also has it's fair shair of problems. One of my biggest problems with PT is it is a money pit. I've gone through a ton of paid upgrades, plug-ins etc. I've also gone through 2 computers. I think the first year I had it, I felt like an IT guy. I think I spent more time messing with the computer then I did recording music. You have to disable tons of stuff, turn of services,yada yada yada.
Some people complain about the MIDI, but I use it a lot and have it down. It's like anything else, the more you use it the easier it gets.
Now a days the recording program isn't as important as the engineering aspect. Getting a good sound going in, knowing mic placement, knowing what freqs to cut in the mix, etc...
I love pro-tools, but if I were to do it again, I would have considered others, like logic. I just got too far down the PT road to quit.
