Default Someone is offering me a Pro Control

... in the box for $900. He's a reputable dealer.

Is it a good deal? I'm pretty content to use my track ball and keyboard, but I wonder if I'm missing anything.

Your thoughts??

Default Re: Someone is offering me a Pro Control

Hello SteveSZ,
I just installed this rig about 3 months ago. I purchased the Main Unit with a Fader Pack and a Flight case for $2250, both in excellent conditon. I then sold the fight case for $200. So for $2050 I got a used/like new ProControl and a Fader Pack. I then bought 2 additional Fader Packs, one off eBay for $900 and the other on Craigslist for $950. I also had a custom top made as you can see in the photo's. My total investment is about $4300. I'm currently running a G5 Dual 2.3 and a G5 Dual 2.7 PCI-X machines using Mac OSX 10.4.11 with Pro Tools 7.4cs10 and Mac OSX 10.5.8 Leaopard with Pro Tools 8.01.cs2 and they both work flawlessly and I love it! I'm not sure about ProControl functionality with Snow Leopard though? However, $900 for a ProControl Main Unit in the box is a good deal if you're using Pro Tools 8.01cs2 or earlier! If you don't want it let me know! I'm in Mount Morris, Michigan, about 50 miles north of Sterling Heights.

You ARE running HD? Pro Control doesn't work with LE.
