Re: Steve Vai's Recording Software

There is a Windoze XP version of PT, these days, the performance should be as good as on a Mac. But, Steve isn't running the LE version that comes with the M-Box, 001, and 002s, the HD version costs 5 figures ($XX,XXX) just to get started. He also records guitars with real amps, loud, through mic'd cabinets, if that was what you are wondering.

Re: Steve Vai's Recording Software

Not compared to what it cost for the equipment in the analog days, which Vai has and still uses too.

Re: Steve Vai's Recording Software

Vai uses Pro Tools HD. As far as I know, it's Mac only becasue Pro Tools HD predominatenly uses its own hardware for audio processing where as LE uses your computers processor. That said, a Pro Tools HD rig (software + extensive Pro Tools hardware) quickly runs into five figures as mentioned above.

Re: Steve Vai's Recording Software

LE systems

002 $2495.00
002 factory $2895
002 rack $1295 factory $1695
Mbox $400-500

HD systems
HD1 $7995
HD2 $10995
Additional processing cards $4995 each
192 i/o interface $3995
192 digital i/o interface $2495
96 i/o $2195

control surfaces

Icon $59995
pro control $11995
control 24 $$7995
command 8 $1295

and all the plug ins can run into the thousands and thousands of dollars each. Pro Tolls is the stuff but its expensive.The software will not run without the hardware. Digi did this to combat piracy. There new digital live consoles are expensive also.

Re: Steve Vai's Recording Software

My guitar teacher got an HD2 Accel system for £2500 (GPB) when he traded in his Mix 24 system. He was very pleased to say the least.

And HD isn't mac only, but I've never seen a PC setup with it.
