The REAL revolution is that it has never before been affordable for a band to record every single live show that they perform and then edit the results into albums. Les Paul Memorial Overdub Parties...

Re: What makes Pro Tools pro?

The ability to record professional quality digital audio on a desktop computer hard drive was revolutionary. (Had Steve Jobs not been fired, that revolution would have happened on an Atari and not a...

Re: What makes Pro Tools pro?

We're talking about what made Pro Tools pro! My memory is that Fairlight was originally lots more expensive and I think it required special format disks.

Pro Tools is a tool kit. You can make it...

Re: What makes Pro Tools pro?

What I saw was people bringing stuff in like you say with music studios not buying into Pro Tools until AutoTune. Many bought Radar as their first digital recorder unless they could afford Sony DASH.

Re: What makes Pro Tools pro?

Pro Tools was first adopted by film sound people because it was much cheaper than its competition and used standard Mac format hard drives. Music was still using analog tape for the most part. What...

Re: NY Times They Really Donít Make Music Like They Used To

I think the connection is developing new music using the feedback from live performance. Throwing new music recordings up against the wall to see what sticks hasn't really worked out.

Re: NY Times They Really Donít Make Music Like They Used To

We had many, if not most of Europe's top musicians living here thanks to the war plus the military had trained and bought instruments for massive numbers of musicians. The 1940s, '50s and '60s were...

Re: What makes Pro Tools pro?

If you want to get a job assisting the top people, you simply need to know Pro Tools. The reason why is that it was the very first multitrack audio workstation that runs on a desktop computer and...

Re: NY Times They Really Donít Make Music Like They Used To

I went for a decade thinking I was just getting old. Then I tried to find live music for my daughter to experience like what had inspired me to go into recording. We were living in San Francisco at...

Re: NY Times They Really Donít Make Music Like They Used To

The elephant in the room is the massive decline in musicians' pay for live gigs since the 1970s. Back then musicians and songs were tested on stage before they ever received the financial backing to...

My understanding is that the inclusion (or not) of driver updates is entirely up to their respective developers and not Microsoft.

Re: AVID incredibly poor customer service

Digidesign had a bit of tendency to promote vapourware a-la-SillyConMan Vallee before Avid took over. That said, so many digidesign people moved to Avid that it looked more like digidesign had taken...

Re: In what area is Pro Tools REALLY lacking??

Cubase is a MIDI sequencer. Pro Tools an audio recorder/editor / mixer that also edits MIDI. I'd rather see them sticking to real advancements rather than merely copying what another developer did 25...

Why would have anyone created Superior Drummer if people could simply use the Pro Tools MIDI editor? Pro Tools was the first HOST for third-party audio processing. I'm not sure we want to see Avid...

Re: Avid Link app

It's available on Android but a search in playstore doesn't find it. I brought up some other Avid apps and there it was lurking at the bottom of the page.

Re: In what area is Pro Tools REALLY lacking??
