Hello all! I just had a conversation this weekend at a club gig I do the sound for. This guy sugessted that I should sell my adats, and get protools. Mainly because it is "industry standard". I have no disagreeance that protools is an excellent program, but I am not sure if it is a wise investment right now. In my own studio, editing is not a huge concern. Neither is crazy processing. I do mostly demos for bands, and jingle stuff, and my current 24 track plus computer setup suits all my needs, in addition to 30 spaces of outboard stuff. In the future I want to focus on music production, and when the need for protools becomes prevalent, I will switch. Even now my computer doesn't get used for much. This is why I thought for the time being, i could focus my investment on better consoles, and some better preseq's, and continue tracking to adat. Would any of you be able to re-enforce my feelings, or tell me how terribly wrong I am? I am interested to hear what you think.
