    Mini Review

    By Steven-J6QXs

    from Corpus Christi, Texas

    Most to get going is here. But not everything.
    This is just a good starter kit. I had to do a few things though. I added a good set of monitors, replaced the headphones, and also Pro Tools does not work until you install patch 003 from the site. I also as the other review states added the Apple CD player to the system. As for all of the plug ins with it. They are just a headache to register and set up. Most will not work any more. The next step is to upgrade to Logic Pro for awhile. The Pro Tools software pops up all of the time and I have to exit with that. It is almost as if it wants me to delete the program. LE maybe better than SE, As for now I am not liking SE too much.

    Overall buy you some good loops and replace the mic with a ribbon mic for guitar and have a blast. Just beware if you do not have any music theory this is not going to make you sound pro. I installed Guitar Rig which is really good for practice. You will find some or most sounds are weak and you will prefer an amp to sound good. Here I would suggest a small amp because you are going to be playing a lot with this. So start here and upgrade as you go. All of the basics will be at hand.
    I give it a seven because you will have to spend more to get a really good start by normal standards.
    Everything is too high and made in the wrong country in my opinion.

    In-Complete Mac mini Recording Studio 2011

    By Frank Knutson

    from Las Vegas

    I ordered this package to be able to have a recording studio away in my cabin that has no internet or telephone.

    The package idea is great. However, Mac mini does not come with a CD/DVD-optical drive device. So you have to purchase the Apple air Super Drive, or connect to another computer that has a CD/DVD-optical drive device to be able to add the ProTools SE software. After acquiring the Super Drive, I installed all of the software and still couldn't get the program running because the Mac mini did not come with "Flash" software. So I had to take my entire system down, transport it to a place to be able to connect with the internet.

    1. No CD/DVD-optical drive device included.
    2. MUST be able to connect to the internet.

    I will make determinations as to the system operation in the near future.

    Quality is fine, realizing that the mic and headphone with the Tascam name are simply one-offs that are probably going to be okay for beginners.
    Even with the realization that I have to purchase a CD/DVD-optical drive device, the value is still great!

    Ad should have more info.

    By Frank Knutson

    from Las Vegas

    Quick enough shipping/delivery, however I have some points to make about selling a "kit" of some equipment put together as a packaged studio. Coming from PC to mac, maybe something other than just the individual owners handbooks should be included. Another point, since the software for the Pro-Tools SE comes on a disk, the ad should tell you that external CD drive access should be available. I am trying to put this studio together as a stand-alone sound recording studio, mostly for V.O. work in a cabin without internet and no other phone line, and no other computers present.

    The TASCAM microphone and headphones apparantley have been made only for the use in kits, because I can find no history, or review of either of them on the internet. They're okay quality, and since TASCAM puts their logo and name on them I expect them to stay good for quite a while even if they were made OOC. (Out Of Country) China I presume. I have not been able to put everything to use as of yet, I just wanted to comment on the lack of CD drive, and being able to migrate the software from the CD to the mac mini.

    I've ordered the mac external dvd/cd drive, as well as the remote control. Looking forward to adding to this review a proper addendum from more experience!
