    When your instructor gave you this scenario as an assignment, what did they specify that the "full band" would be comprised of?

    What would be the most ideal ProTools rig? Well, there aren't any affordable ProTools rigs that can record more than 8 tracks simultaneously. Pro tools LE cannot record more than 18 tracks simultaneously if you have an interface that can deliver. So that leaves only the more high-end ProTools systems that can be used as portable 24 track recorders. So why do you want to do that? You could utilize a couple of the M-Audio interfaces or any others for that matter to achieve real-time simultaneous track counts of more than 18 into someone else's software. You can record into Adobe Audition with anyone's computer interface at track counts beyond 24 simultaneously. From there, you can import whatever you want into any low-cost Pro tools LE system. Such as a M Box 2, Mini or Micro

    Personally, I prefer a purpose built recorder instead of computer blah blah. I utilize 24 beautiful API and/or Neve preamps into a Alesis HD 24xr. Then loaded into ProTools LE. That's only if the client wants ProTools. Otherwise it's Sony Vegas or Adobe Audition for me.
