I have to say that I'm not surprised that no one has answered your post yet as you really should dig into the manual and read before you post this kind of question. While I can't speak for everyone on this forum, I'm willing to bet that all of us have really done our homework and only after then we would post a question having a problem that we just couldn't figure out on our own. You may think that I am being mean about this but actually I trying to help you down the line. Again you should READ THE MANUAL and practice on your own before posting this kind of ?

As caruso said, and spend a little time just reading the DUC and noting the categories. This section is for HD users and there is a dedicated section for M-Powered on Windows. Youtube is a tremendous source of tutorial videos.

Not to be a Smart ***** but For a question like this you might want to READ THE MANUAL (RIF) or (RTFM) The rest of us are way to busy recording chart topping hits and trying to figure out what we are going to wear to The Grammy Awards and what Starlett we are going to take to try and type out the whole process of how to record in Pro Tools when its all ready out lined in The Manual.
