Re: First Time Pro Tools User...maybe -- Advice?

I agree with many of the comments here, but I would remind us that there are some great editors that are great with sound, too. If you're shooting to become another Walter Murch, I wish you all the...

Re: Mac or PC, which is the winner for audio production?
