Default Made me think

The other day I was in a studio where my friend is running a MAC PRO (entry level) and LOGIC PRO 7. We started comparing things that Pro Tools 7.1 (Production Toolkit) and LOGIC can do. I must be honest, Pro Tools have a lot off limitations. It's allso very scary to see how many plugins Locig can run with no problems compared to Pro Tools.
Anybody out there with the same feeling?????

One of the basic schools of thought was that Digidesign came out with Pro Tools LE to whet our appetites for buying an HD system. I have it on good authority from a former BETA tester that they went to great lengths to ELIMINATE the timecode function from the initial LE systems (pre DV-toolkit). All that aside, I'm doing tons of commercials and cutting jingles on my LE system...sure I'd love an HD3 system, but I can't justify the extra cost when I'm getting the job done with an 002R.....
By the way, I used to do all my work on SAW PRO, and you could load it up with plugins too. It was MUCH less PC hungry.....

I'm very careful not to denigrate Pro Tools here... that would be disrespectful in my view as they pay the bills for this site and because I've been hanging out here for a long time and enjoy the people and discussions. I also learn a great deal here on the DUC. Further I intend to keep my PT skills sharp and to retain PT capability.

I will say that my current primary hardware/software are "competing" systems and the performance and features are impressive comparatively.

For instance. I was working on a track the other day and, because I had not completed the comping duties, was surprised to find that I had 45 tracks activated, a liberal amount of plugs and a VSTi instrument... and was cruising along without a hitch. ( I'm one of those guys who used to chime in here "why the hell do you need that many tracks! The Beatles didn't... )

Anyway, yes, Pro Tools is a heavy application, but it does have it's charms.
For what its worth, I tend to look at ALL the audio applications I own and use as tools in my box and use what works in any given situation. Using and understanding multiple platforms has been a positive experience for me.

Good luck-
