a few years ago this stood out as the leader. but today there are so many options besides pro tools. there are better options for less money. but this is still a decent unit
it is an amazing solid and reliable piece that works seamlessly with protools. the only complaint i have is that the mic pres are soooo bad and it seems kinda overpriced for what you are getting. protools has been great but the plug-ins are pretty much throwouts (not a fan) and are pretty bad. also be prepared to invest a lot of money in other stuff...life nice monitors, mics, preamps, etc...
I have a digi 002 for my home studio. I've had it for about a year with only one problem--You are supposed to have the computer and the Digi 002 off when you connect them together via firewire, because it can sometimes burn out the firewire port on the Digi 002 when you "hot plug" it. It took a year of hotplugging for my ports to break, but when they did it was easy to get fixed using the website.The "Digi 002" is useful, however I would have bought the "Digi 002 rack" had I really understood what it does.The "Digi 002" is a standalone mixer, and has buttons like play, rewind, stop, record ect..., along with some window shifting buttons for using different pro tools screens.The "Digi 002 rack" has all of the same recording functions, you simply have to learn keyboard shortcuts (Ctrl + W) for each function.The only difference is really in the standealone mixer.Unless you've got extra to spend, the "Digi 002 rack" should suit you just fine
I have a digi 002 in my home studio rig which I finally got smoothely running today. My first huge complaint is that there are only 4 very average preamps...so, even though it's 8 channels you can only do 4 mics with this board by itself. I purchased a PreSonus Digimax LT to work with it so I could have 16 channels, 12 of which have preamps (6 of which are way better than the other 4). Be warned that you can NOT run RAID with pro tools; so, for those of you with high level computers, you better be scowering the compatibillity pages at digidesign.com I ended having to downgrade my system, removing my RAID controller, losing 2 channels. Driver support for this stuff is honestly the most horrible I've ever experience from any software or hardware. It's dissapointing that it's like this for how much they charge.On a positive note, the Digi 002 is an amazing piece of hardware that works beautifully in pro tools. The software is very intuitive and the digi 002 makes things very fast and easy because of it's ability to control pro tools. This product would be a 10/10 across the board if it wasn't for it's atrocious compatibillity problems. I highly recommend this purchase if you are either buying one of their supported PC's or a Mac; otherwise be ready to do some hard work and possibly spend money on changing hardware in your computer, if not buy a whole new one.
I have been using my Digi 002 for three years now. It was intimidating at first...a little complex...but the final products have never disappointed me or my friends. They are amazed (and sometime jealous) when they hear the songs I am able to create in my bedroom studio. Take your time and learn the basics of recording and you will be fine. The system does it all (records, mixes, and produces a great final product). There are very powerful (and amazing) compression, EQ, reverb and delay tools included. I honestly haven't leearned all the capabilities of the system...but I have a strong command of the basics.By the way...all the big studios use the professional version (Pro-Tools HD) so you will be using the same stuff as the big boys. Don't waste your time on the "all-in-one" systems that are not as powerful and cannot be upgraded...invest and get the best.My only complaint...and it is minor...it that the system has a less-than-road-worthy plastic chasis. I bought by Digi 002 in 2003 and haven't moved it once so it has not been a problem for me. I think there is a travel bad you can purchase...but try not to toss it in the back of your truck after a gig.
I purchased this bundle a few months ago after messing around on my buddies 002 Rack. The 002 Bundle is a perfect tool to be working on in a project studio or something of that nature. The factory bundle has quite a few plugins that help get ya started too! The only thing I would do is have Pro Tools version 7 with it,(7 is a big step up from 6.9.) As a stand alone mixer it works great as well, it has EQ for every channel, a compressor, reverb and delay, not to hard to work with for a digital desk either, even if you are used to analog setups.
After having many problems with the Yamaha 01X, I returned it and picked up the digi 002 instead. Definately more $$$, but so far it's worth every penny. Setup was wonderfully easy (compared to 01X), great documentation, and the audio quality is excellent.
When it comes to digital recording there is nothing better than Pro Tools. It is great for recording MIDI, audio (both in stereo and mono), mixing, mastering, and an all around great Production tool. Although it doesn't come with a manual, its learning curve is moderate, meaning, play around with it enough and you'll get the hang of it. The plug-ins are also great. The sampletank soft synth is one of my favorite features. Over all it is a great bundle. If you need more instruction check out the Berkelee College of music online school....
