Topic: Pro-Tools vs Pro-Tools LE
Replies: 25

I mix and master with PTLE, here's my 2 cents: I'm not sure I would call it the "industry standard." I work primarily with hip hop artists and independent labels and some people work with Logic, some with Cubase, etc. etc. Pro Tools LE is VERY common among users, and most commercial studios have PTH...

Topic: Backing Up Large PT Sessions: Advice Needed

I use Acronis True Image to back up my system drive with one click. I have not tried to do this with one particular folder, but I believe it is possible and you can choose an incremental backup (like you would when backing up your system). Look them up online and see if the program would work for yo...

I work on them pretty much all day at low to medium levels, and do not get ear fatigue. And they CAN get loud, if need be... I think this is the key with any models you choose. I still mix with my 824s, just because I'm used to them and I've set them up in a way that works for me. Get yourself a ch...

The majority of the effects I use in PT (LE) are UAD effects, in my opinion they are the best out there. I also have Massey's, McDSP and also the Digidesign ReelTape suite, which is also excellent. The stock PT plugins are not bad either. I also have Waves' API bundle, which is good, but doesn't get...

Hey, how the heck did I get "ass engineer" under my name!?

I prefer "technician". I know a few real engineers (with proper degrees) and I personally don't feel myself qualified for that title.

I really like the idea of stickers to give out to both potential clients and satisfied customers. That's something to look into after I get these cards. The place I get my stickers made also does free b&w printing on the back of the stickers, so this could be something like your phone number and ot...

For the record, I'm not anti biz-anything. I'm a firm believer in using whatever works to propel yourself and your business. I was talking from the stance of an up-and-coming audio engineer, I'm not talking about a guy that owns and operates a magazine and goes to trade shows. If you're an up-and-co...

The CD replicator I refer my clients to does those tiny CD business cards too, I don't think my "target client base" would appreciate those, however. This shows that (again) it depends on your target audience. If it means anything, I'm about to get a couple thousand stickers made. They'll only have ...

Thanks for the link! The funny thing (I thought) was that PT on my PC said it was going to convert the SDII files to .Wav but it failed to do so. I also tried loading them (to convert them) into another session but it then just gave me the "file is unreadable by Pro Tools" message when highlighting ...

The RME interface you have is good, but to take the trip out of your DAW and back into it, I personally would get something better for the DAC to ADC conversion. The HEDD is a great AD/DA converter as well as the tube/tape process that it has is great for making digital sound more analog. After that...

Interesting that the article's title mentions the Recording studio, when I think that's about the only kind of Studio that may survive. Mixing and Mastering is probably all going to end up being done in "not commercial facilities" but for sure, Recording Studios have advantages that can't be accompl...

I didn't mean to sound too general; I think it depends on the level of sophistication of the prospective clients you're trying to reach. I'm sure there are still people who appreciate business cards, but as I said "I personally feel", that's only my opinion. I live in Los Angeles like the OP, and de...

I would advise you to scrap the idea of making business cards. I think they still serve a purpose for some businesses, but for audio engineering, I personally feel they're outdated. What you want to do is be able to send your contact information to someone as fast as possible, like being able to mes...

I just had an odd issue with this. I'm using PT (LE) 8 on a WinXP machine and got a PT session that was done on an old PT TDM rig and I was not able to work with the session because all of the audio files were SDII's. The notification I got from PT was that it was going to automatically convert the ...
