Pro Tools Express was an absolute pain to install and get running. Even though the description on Avid's website says that PT Express is compatible with Windows 8, (if it is on a qualified computer, or if you optimize a few settings) yeah it will open, and you can waste tons of time setting up the perfect session, only to find out that you cant even record ANY instruments on windows 8 even with the right computer and settings. Also, Avid will take weeks to get back to you if you need any sort of help. However, the Fast Track solo is nice......
I've installed many of these on W7 PC's and Mac's without problem. We use it for radio production and it works great, most producers prefer the Protools to other more expensive products at their disposal. YOU DO HAVE TO INSTALL EVERYTHING IN THE EXACT ORDER PER THE INSTRUCTIONS OR IT WONT WORK AND YOU DONT GET A SECOND CHANCE. If you don't follow the directions you might as well reload the Windows OS to try again. 1. Download and install Fast Track driver from Avid (Windows only). 2. THEN plug in Fast Track to USB2 and wait until drivers load, it can take a few minutes. Watch device manager to see when it is done. You should now be able to play sounds from the Windows Sound app in Control Panel. 3. Sign up for account and down load license manager from iLok.com, install license manager. 4. Sign up for account at Avid.com, activate license from the card that came in the box. Activating the license on Avid.com puts the license in your account on iLok.com you created in step 3. 5. Run licnese iLok manager program you installed in step 3 then transfer the license from your account to the iLok fob. 6. Download and install Protools program from Avid.com. Enjoy.
Everything I purchased is working perfectly in my Laptop, EXCEPT PRO TOOLS! I've wasted a lot of time to download it, to register, to activate, to transfer license from third party,...many useless tasks, and the worst, it doesn't install with Windows 8. You need a obsolete computer to run it !!!!! It's absolutely a pain in the @**.
I tried to install software but would not install. I tried it on another computer with no success. Then I took it to a computer expert who could not install it on his geeked out computer. Another thing which I did not like is that it required an iLok which would have eventually been a pain in the butt. It does look pretty cool and this was a big disappointment. 9 hours of wasted time. I hate this thing!
Pro Tools Express will take you a little time to learn if you're new to this, as I am. There's tons of tutorials and so on on the internet though; as well as Avid's own forums and many others. The interface is small, seems well-built and can handle a microphone or guitar, or even both at once. If you have electronic drums, that'll work too. Really perfect for a small project or if you're just starting out.
