Waste of time! Followed install directions never could get it to run. Multiple error messages keeps it from launching and then eats system resources even when its not running. I uninstalled. Win 10 i7 16 gigs of ram.

I agree also, had it on Windows 10 i5 16GB ram never got it stable always moaning or crashing or not even starting. I recently tried it on my OSX machine i5 16GB ram, complete waste of time, same thing moaning about everything and anything, "Pro Tools not responding can we send data to Avid"; be my guest!

I also use and like very much Logic Pro X and Ableton Live and they are grand for the electronic arts and have everything I need and more.

I don't want to be spending my creativity or mixing time on forums or writing up stuff or service support tickets, give me a break ffs, so il stick with Logic and Ableton and completely disappointing with my introduction to Pro Tools First. I wont be upgrading!

Yeah, just getting it installed was a bummer. I haven't recorded anything in it yet, but I just heard that you can't record to the hard drive? is this true?

This sucks because one of the reasons I bought the Scarlet interface was that ProTools First came with it and now its seems like it was a waste of time and money.

Too bad there aren't too many lawyer musicians out there...sounds like class action to me

Can you clarify what you mean by "you can't record to the hard drive" please? See the KB article linked in the thread from this past April at the top of the Pro Tools First subforum which might relate.

People seems to forget that before pro tools first (which is not a big change in codes from the regular pro tools, just limitation codes added to it), there was a 30 day trial of pro tools. So really, there's not a huge difference and waste of time.

PT First does NOT "only record to the cloud" it records to your hard drive and then can be backed up in the cloud.

Try hold down 'N' when launching.

Make sure you have an ASIO audio interface if you are on Windows.
