Now you can use Pro Tools with any interface…a feature they held back for so long I’m surprised they aren’t embarrassed to even address it now. They must be losing market share.
Also of note: no big new features for the mass market, just high end improvements. At least they know their base.
P.S. I was planning on using Pro Tools to teach mixing this year but found it too hard to teach – it’s horribly designed. I might as well have been mixing in Max/MSP. Good luck steering this sinking ship Avid.

So which software/hardware ARE you using to teach mixing this year then?
GarageBand with level 1, a mix of GB, Ableton and examples with Logic for level 2. Next year I’m going to put Logic on the whole lab. We used PT for a week, but it was too much hassle to learn the concepts while learning the quirks of setting up a session in that abomination.
PS Nice blog! I need to give Morphwiz a try…Bebot is still the touch synth of choice around these parts.
OMG BUT PROTOOLS IS SO AWESUM AND EZ 2 USE
U MUST JUST B BAD AT IT
OK you got me…expect a reward of “one (1) internet” for your comment. You will also receive a copy of “Pro Tools: The Missing Manual”, which will be delivered in a 16 foot box truck for each of its four volumes.
Speaking of mixing, maybe I should get around to that…
