Comments about Digidesign Digi 003 Rack Factory Pro Tools LE System:

The most irritating thing is registering and loading all the programs but if you do a few a day its not that hard... The best thing about a Pro Tools set up is you have the ability to send your sessions to the pros and have them mix/master your session with their set up... Its IMPOSSIBLE to have a HD system with LE but you will have the cutting edge and control that you would never imagine... Dont waste money on a program that the pros dont use... Pro Tools is in the biggest studios in the world for a reason!!!
