Default Pro Tools LE 96 kHz?

Hi everybody. Last week I became the proud new owner of a g4 933 Quicksilver.

I'm looking to invest in a professional audio system, and so far I've been impressed by Pro Tools. Most of the posts in this forum seem to be about philosophy or techniques. In comparison,the Cubase forum was full of people having one software nightmare after another.

I'm considering purchasing either the Digi 001 studio or the Mbox studio. The mBox seems more appealing for its portability, but I wanted to get some opinions on the following questions first:

1) What do you see as the main differences between the Digi 001 and the Mbox (other than internal/external)?

2) Can Pro Tools LE record at 24 bit/96 kHz? I'm considering buying a 24/96 card later as my needs grow.

3) Lastly, what do you feel are the advantages of Pro Tools over Logic and Cubase?

Thanks much for your time!

Cheers,
Peter

Peter,

digi001 has 18 in/outs (8 analog, 8 through adat-lightpipe, 2 spdif) and integrated midi in/out.
Mbox has a max of 2 in/out

2) no, ptle wont go any higher then 48Khz/24 bit. Also....ptle wont work together with other hardware. Only digidesign stuff is recognized....

3) cant really help you there....i only use protools

Using ASIO drivers, the Digi001 will recognize Peak, Deck and Nuendo. There are probably others but those are the few I've tried.

Have a close look at Logic first. I prefer ProTools myself, but there are limitations and sacrifices you make in return for the ease of use of the 001.

You should also take a look at Digital Performer (DP3). The soft is pretty good (its "arborescence" is a little complex though which make it harder to understand than PT) and the hardware seems great (it provides the 96KHz you seem to be looking for, and uses Firewire=>easy to plug and de-plug, no PCI overload risk).

My thoughts on the subject...

Every piece of software, except Pro Tools LE, permits in excess of 24 audio tracks.

But, no other software is as straight forward as Pro Tools.

What are your needs?

Phil (...who's praying every night for extra tracks).
