Here are a few Pro Tools tips that you might find useful:

  • Audio Interface Required!
    • Pro Tools requires an audio interface (sound card) with ASIO drivers (for Windows) or Core Audio drivers (for Mac).  
    • The soundcard built into your computer is not suitable for recording or playback with Pro Tools.  
    • If you don't already have an audio interface, we can make a recommendation for you - just reply to this message.
    • Our sound card buyer's guide might also be helpful where you can find inexpensive solutions such as the AudioFace II for around $50, or more professional, multi-channel solutions such as the StudioLive perfect for studios and live recording - and everything in between!
  • Consider a Control Surface...
    • A control surface is so much easier for working with Pro Tools than your mouse!  Instantly access multiple channels at once for complete control over your music.
    • The Artist Mix is the ideal way to control Pro Tools.
    • Looking for an inexpensive way to control Pro Tools?  Check out the i2 Control 37 USB MIDI controller which can be mapped to Pro Tools - for under $150!  Plus you can also use it for recording, playing soft synths and more!
