fwiw, those bundled plugs have gotten a lot better recently (finally). in particular, i find i'm using the digirack EQ and digirack de-esser frequently. and i've been using the delays for years.The downside of PT is that it only comes with very basic plugins-EQ, compressor, reverb etc. No real soft-instruments.
The plugins you do get are reasonable quality with PT, but just the bare minimum of mixing/mastering plugins.fwiw, those bundled plugs have gotten a lot better recently (finally). in particular, i find i'm using the digirack EQ and digirack de-esser frequently. and i've been using the delays for years.
not so much the compressor, as i've got other tools for that (though i've heard the latest compressor is decent).
D-Verb, as always, is utter crap.
not to say the plugs bundled w/ logic aren't better (i wouldn't know), just that the digi ones have gotten better than they were.
bundled, anyway. we PT users do, however, get the inexpensive but excellent massey plugs. for the time being, we're the only ones.If you want instruments or a more extensive range of effects then you don't get them with PT.
Sadly Digidesign still see surround as the domain of the professional..... You need PT HD to get surround mixing from LE as standard.Which version of Pro Tools would I need to edit and mix surround sound? I am fairly familiar with how this works with Apple's software, but not sure if the M-powered version of Pro Tools offered through M-Audio can do this.
I think you should use pro tools LE software.Since it would be more convenient to use pro tools LE software with mac pro and I am also using pro tools LE with mac pro and till now i didn't face any problem.I want to buy a mac to write & record music, I'm looking at getting the Mac Book Pro - what software package should I use LP7 or PT LE?
(Out of curiosity how much is Pro Tools LE software?)
