    hi

    I'm buying a new iMac and will be also learning ProTools. I want to connect my ProTools rig to my surround sound amplifier. Does anyone here know the proper way to do this?

    Thanks in advance,

    Protools LE won;t output into 5.1, you'll need HD for that.

    Logic/DP4/Abelton and even Soundtrack Pro all output to 5.1 but not LE, oh no, that would be farrrrrr tooooo much to hope for wouldn't it Digi?:rolleyes:


    As for connections, either go analog direct into the Stereo LR inputs, or use the optical buss (which I think the 002 supports).

    connect to Yamaha RX-V661

    Thank you for responding! How's London today?

    Can I still connect from the digi02 into my Yamaha RX-V661 amp?

    When you say that "Protools LE won;t output into 5.1, you'll need HD for that" do you mean that I won't get any sound or that it will not be in surround sound format?

    You won't get 5.1 audio or a 5.1 mixing environment from LE, just stereo.

    Yes, hook your 002's outputs to your amp, analog or digital doesn't make that much difference, it depends on the inputs on the amp.

    London's grey and cold today, but at least the coffee's good.
