By the way, if you could email your response to joel at joeljupp dot com, that would be greatly appreciated!!
Run, don’t walk, run from this topic. In fact, I encourage you to delete it if you can.
Try it & decide yourself. But remember Protools LE runs only on Windoze 98/ME so I wouldn’t touch it with a 10’ DAW!!!
And we have the winner with the first false info…
way to go toker!
I emailed you so you can get the truth…
Again, run from this topic…
EDIT if Toker was referring to Pro Tools FREE, then yes it is only for Win98/ME. DO NOT BASE YOUR OPINIONS ON THAT FREE POS.
Ahhh - I beg your pardon. What was false about the info I provided?
Check my edit.
The free is still based on Win 98.
The functioning, wonderful version 6.x of PTle is XP baby, all the way. Has been since version 5.3
I apologize for my error - I thougth Protools LE was the free version.
Clarke - are you suggesting that I purposely provide false information (or knowingly lie) because that’s the tone of your post.
No, Toker. Wasn’t aimed at you in anyway. i was simply girding for the onslaught of
"Bang for the buck! Bang for the buck!"responses and general misinformed posts on the PT subject.
Sorry to infer man.
However, I do think it’s a little foolhearty to try to compare nTrack with a commercial product like ProTools LE. While it’s true, that there are many examples of shareware-like products, such as nTrack, that are actually “better” than their commercial counterparts, but of course, the reverse is also true.
IMO - it’s better to compare products that are more closely in the same “league”, i.e., same price range.
And how many people here would have used bought ProTools LE? I mean that’s why we’re here right - to save money & to support the small guy (go Flavio)!

Sure, maybe so. But your response perpetuates the myth. what, in your opinion, does PT cost vs N-track?
What myth? The only price I could find for PT LE was $75 and that was for an upgrade.
the myth that PT is expensive?
Pro Tools Le IS $75.00
You go and buy a Digi001 on Ebay and you don’t have the PT software, it’s the same $75 as Ntrack is.
So then the complaint becomes:
"I HAVE to use Digi hardware"
YES! and that is why it is solid and works! The software is writen to work with their hardware, not 750 different audio interfaces.
I couldn’t find it for that price. Can you buy it w/o the MBox? It seems to sell for >$300.00
I use them both, ok? So don’t think I am here being a shill. Just trying to get the correct info out there.
Well, you can’t use it without a Digi interface.
If you want to get decent pres and an interface, what do you think it is going to cost to go another route? $300? Heck yeah!
In light of that, it’s no more expensive. And really tightly integrated
tools are tools, right?
pick it and use it.
So dispell the myth & enlighten us - which is "better": nTrack or ProTools LE?
