I do most of my recording and mixing to and from the Tascam MX2424. I use Samplitude to edit the tracks just like Protools and send the edited tracks digitally back to the Tascam. But now and then I get calls from people needing Protools to do overdubs or mix (we have REALLY nice outboard & mics). The Projects I record and mix do not require more than 24 tracks so I am wondering if PT LE would be better than no ProTools at all. If if they could just do overdubs here and then back to the million dollar room to mix it would be business for me, as well as additional word of mouth. I know that it would be easier just to buy a full on TDM system, and the cash is in the bank to do it, but I really dont think it will warrant the cost vs the LE version ($1K versus $9K-$20K?). We already have a smokin' PC that is easily upgradeable so we just need the software and some basic hardware. 1)What are the limitations to the LE version for just music? 2)What do you think are the bonuses over other PC based DAWs, or is it just the name recognition for the client? 3)Does it use WAV files on PC, or SDII also? 4)What if someone brings me a system started on TDM Macintosh, would it be hard for the PC LE version to read it? 5)Can the same PRO results be had on the LE version (with a powerful computer, say a 1Ghz processor w/512 mgz of SDRAM) as on the TDM v 5.0? 6)The Hardware on the 001 looks limited (only one lightpipe), is there anyway to transfer all 24 tracks digitally out at one time?
