select 'create new audio cd' when you start to burn the cd at cd burner software and select your wav file. each wav or mp3 will be a cd track.

What the fuck is wrong with you people?

Shut up, so many fucking posts saying "pro-tools is shit, a good engineer can work with anything". Then work with the limitations that Protools may or may not present and be creative for once in your sad, industry standard lives.

Re: What the fuck is wrong with you people?

Listen, everyone relates their own experience in their own way - fair enough; you may have a negative opinion of Pro Tools - you must speak as you find, but Pro Tools IS the standard in the industry of recording sound for music purposes. A full Pro Tools set-up will cost i.r.o. £15,000.00 just for starters, this is freeware - a cut down sample. The creators of pro tools aren't aiming for the home recording market in any big way because they have the professional market entirely sewn up and in the bag. This is a gift.
Personally I prefer to record in analogue. I use digital on a daily basis as I'm doing a very advanced three year course on the subject, but digital solutions are around for one purpose only - to save very costly studio time.
The download may be shite but the Pro Tools sysytem is not. Go into any high end recording facility and they'll be using Pro Tools.

A bad workman blames his Pro Tools and don't look a gift horse in the mouth. This is genuinely a rare opportunity to get a taste for the system. Treat it as a gift so why not exercise a little gratitude at least?

Re: What the fuck is wrong with you people?

La-de-da 15,000 pounds for pro tools is your head up your A$$ where the hell is anyone in the home digital recording game going to get that sort of money.I use a roland u8 16 bit cubasis and i will still get the same results from running pro tools on that platform so how can you say its a gift you wont even know the difference in quality if you cant use the 24 bit platform.A real gift would be a drop in the extravagent price tags on these items then maybe some real musicians can get a go instead of just the few like you who are lucky enough to have the gear avaliable.

Re: What the **** is wrong with you people?

Hi I noticed you have a roland u8. I cant get the thing working. Got it off ebay without software. Downloaded drivers but use Logic. Can you help?

Fortunately I refuse to upgrade from Win95, so I don't have to experience the problems your speaking of. :-)

Re: What the fuck is wrong with you people?

Protools does not suck, i noticed that anyone that is an engineer loves protools, but anyone else hates it because it's too professional and it doesn't do all the work for u. get real people, protools is great, at leasts it sorts the dumb fucks out from the rest of us!

Yes it sucks.

: Protools does not suck.

Yes it does. It was great, pioneer, but then just stopped right there where it is. All the other top-notch softwares (nuendo, logic, cubase and even sonar) are way ahead feature-wise. As for the hardware, there are alternatives. Protools is overpriced and overrated. Face the facts.

THEY ALL SUCK

all software based "studios" suck. The sound is always cheap and thin. If it ain't recorded on tape, it ain't worth listening to

learn propa gramma!!

Never start a sentence with an appology.If you have a product or a skill why be sorry about it?
as soon as i read the first few lines i felt like i should be buying your product for simpathy!

Be confident. You have a gift. GO FOR IT.

Re: What the fuck is wrong with you people?

for a new user what do you recomend- cakewalk or pro tools- and if pro tools which version-
thanks-

Re: What the fuck is wrong with you people?

Hmmmm. It seems to me that if a company is giving away popular and expensive software for free and if a lot of people are having trouble with their computer crashing, maybe just maybe they're testing to see how big the demand, and how their program performs on peoples computers. I really doubt that a company would out of the kindness of their heart just give away free stuff.
shit just doesnt happen that way.

Re: What the fuck is wrong with you people?

Man, you're right, i got totally pissed and wrote that drooling crap in a fit of compassionate, beer goggled shit spouting. I have removed Pro Tools, it crashed more times than an 18 year old borrowing Daddies car. While i admit i missed that point, i still think there are those who miss the point when it comes to making music and think that a popular, over-priced piece of software (ok, Pro Tools free is free - hence the name, let's not get picky) is going to make their music gloriously listenable. If the music is genuinely good, a microphone through a shitty tapedeck will still carry that creativity. Or is that just more senseless shite?

CHOOSE, my friends. Pro Tools is not the only one.

I DON'T USE PRO TOOLS AND i'M HAPPY WITH IT!
in my humble opinion things can be set to a few words : pro tools is good, but it's not the best and not the only one package available. it has become a standard? blame it on who helped it, don't help it yourself. check out cubase, nuendo, cakewalk sonar, vegas, logic audio, etc., and decide.
i have pro tools free but only to learn it in case I eventually need to use it in studios or likewise. but i'd never really record anything with it. my choice is STEINBERG software... cubase vst and nuendo. you'll never find VST instruments in pro tools.

Re: CHOOSE, my friends. Pro Tools is the only one.

: I USE PRO TOOLS AND i'M HAPPY WITH IT!
: in my humble opinion things can be set to a few words : pro tools is and always will be the standard all you have to do is turn on the news, radio or play your fav artist, and 9 time out of 10......it's the best in the industry for now, and the only true professinal one package available for that price.the program has become a standard? blame it on who helped it, and continue help it yourself produce sold product each, and every time. check out cubase, nuendo, cakewalk sonar, vegas, logic audio, etc., and decide, but realize that the free version of pro tools is not the fully blown out version, it's only 8 tracks to play with, you cant really compare all of the other fully blwn out programs to pro tools free, your plug-ins are at a minimum, and more than likely the factory sound card in the average computer is not "all that" in the good sound quality department.

Re: CHOOSE, my friends. Pro Tools is the only one.

2-inch 24-track is still the only way to track... nuendo works much much better for mixdown and automation than bro tools!

emagic logic audio platinum.....nice

is this worth it?

No additional hardware, but is it any good? I'm not after the worlds greatest home set-up but i want to record 16 tracks, some stereo for drums and/or synths. I'm not fussed for midi. Is this download worth it as an indicator for the proper version on Zzounds webpage? Any advice appreciated. Loads of people said its impossible to download the program, I don't want to waste my time or monoey if its shite.....

You ask if this d/l is worth it, Mr Optimist... just reading all these posts here is enough to make me think "No Way!!!". I don't know about you, but reading all these negative comments sure as hell scared me away from this ProToolsFree program. I'd say the smart money is to leave it alone, don't you agree?

It is only 16 bit max - not pro-standard

Pro tools free (5.0.1 r2) is promoted as the free version of the super-professional ProTools products.
But its maximum bit rate is only 16bits, while industry standard is now 24 or even 32 bits in some setups. In short the sound quality is inferior.
It is true that Pro Tools Free does offer you the option of recording in 24 bit each time you start a new session. But this is misleading: the drivers that is uses (MME in Windows and SoundManager in Mac) cannot exceed 16 bits. Its deceptive (think trade practices laws here)
The other gimmick is that the effects that are bundled with Pro Tools Free (eg reverb, flange, etc) are demos that expire after a month.

multitrack recording software

Dear all,
I want to download a multitrack recording software from the net. I could be either cracked or not. Any hints on what to get and where to get it? Any info is welcome.
Do you think that pro tools free would do the job.

Best,

Joao

Re: multitrack recording software

pelo nome tu é brasileiro,
prezado joao, vá em www.expertmidia.com.br que lá tem tudo pra audio, por um preço justo, eu mesmo comprei a compilação ProAudio4 e to bastante satisfeito. um abraço.

Pro-Tools Plug-ins

Hi, I'm interested in some Pro-Tools plug-ins but to run on PC. As you should know it's very hard to find friends which run Pro-Tools on PC so I have no chance to find those particular Plug-ins.
It would be great if they are cracked bacuse they are too expensive for my budget right now. If there is a place online where I can find them and download them, please, let me know.
