    Comments about Avid Fast Track Solo with Pro Tools Express:

    This recording tool is excellent. I don't know what the other guy is talking about, but in order to get the program running you need to download ProTools, which is FREE!!! Then once you download it, you never need to download it again!!! Very user friendly and highly recommended!!!!

        Comments about Avid Fast Track Solo with Pro Tools Express:

        this product makes no sense at all. the only way to get the program to operate the system is to download it from the internet. the instructions may as well be written in an alien language. hours are spent and you are so frustrated that you're ready to throw the whole thing in the trash. luckily I sent it back and musician's friend gave me a full refund. musician's friend has always been a great place to get equipment and I will continue ordering from them. I don't blame them for this product, I blame avid. they need to make their products user friendly or get out of the business.
