This is my first post btw i am new here
, i have explored this forum many times to help me with product recommendations ect which helped me decide to get my new Shure 840's which im yet to hear.....
Anyway's i am currently studying Cert IV in Sound Production at tafe in Australia (if that means anything to anyone on this forum
) and ever since i started getting cash flow i wanted to take my protools mixes home so i can work on them more. Now here's my dilemma (takes deep breath
I currently have a 2008 Mac Book Pro 15" 2 core Duo 2.6 Ghz i think 4 Gb ram which is going to get fixed, i imagine that has enough juice to power a 16 channel mix. PS: Due to the fact that my college doesn't have studios with monitors all the time, i mostly mix "in the cans", my mixes translate fairly decently with my old Sennheisers 205 II
Now getting down to what im buying. Im going to get Protools 10 (student version) or Full Version, according to a thread on the avid site they're virtually the same. I can get it for $325 on it's own, personally i want another audio interface however im faced with this option.
I can buy a dirt cheap second hand Tascam US 122 for $50 so i can at least drive protools ,mix and invest in a higher quallity unit later on with more channels with nicer Pre's, more stable drivers with firewire and ADAT. What do the gearslutz think of this plan
? PS: I don't like buying online, just don't feel comfortable with it
