I hope some of the pros here can help me get strated with Pro Tools. Basically, I want to use my computer to start producing songs. Anything from pop, r&b to trance. For an example of what I'm looking to do check out this YouTube video by some guy named Ryan Leslie. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D7FlgHKWPu0&mode=related&search= Now, I don't want to start a debate about how much this guy might suck or anything like that but I simply want to be able to sit down at my computer and create music with Pro Tools (I have no experance with this but plan on being training). I don't have a need at all at this point to record live instraments although I may want to do some vocals when I get my beats down. From what I can gather Pro Tool M-Powered will not work with any other device other than M-audio?? is this true? I am planning on starting out with a Novation X-Station 25 so would this not work? I notice the LE version is almost identical but requires you purchase a hardware box for inputs. I'm not sure if I really need this though as I'm just trying to use USB Midi to record my tracks. So I'm pretty confused on how to proceed here. I am going to be getting a new mac pro and am trying to get going composing beats and songs. Can someone point me in the right direction? Thank you.
