When you're ready to record your next masterpiece, where do you turn? There was a time when the only way to record your music was to hightail it down to a professional studio and pay for a producer and/or engineer to sweat all the details, from mic placement to mixing, to get your life’s work onto a thin strip of magnetic tape. Now there are a multitude of recording options for the aspiring artist, from stand-alone units with proprietary software, to off-the-shelf laptops with basic recording software included. None, however, can match Avid’s Pro Tools for usability, universal acceptance, and performance, regardless of your ability or budget.
What initially started as a collection of drum sound chips and a sound editor for a sampling keyboards in the mid-1980s has evolved into the most widely used audio production software in the industry. Pro Tools features an array of software and hardware options to fit your recording needs. Pro Tools software allows you to work with or without an interface, whether from Avid or a compatible unit from an independent manufacturer. This is a huge asset when you want to mix or master your tracks without having to connect your hardware, or when you want to use a third-party interface.
The software is available as a stand-alone, or you can upgrade your recent version at a reduced price. There are severalAvid interfaces that you can buy separately, or find bundled with the software to get your instrument signal into your computer. They offer a range of input/output options, meters and other features, all with high-resolution audio and above all, with the legendary Pro Tools stability and universal acceptance. Whether you take your tracks to a pro studio for mixing and mastering, record your drums at a studio and overdub your vocals and guitars at home, or even record an entire album at home by yourself, this recording platform is the tool of choice for creating smoking guitar tones, and getting them recorded as they should be heard.
