Note:If you happen to receive a copy of M-Powered Essential that is 8.02 or earlier and have Windows 7, you may get a warning that the Fast Track USB driver is not compatible. To alleviate this issue follow the following link in order to download a free update: http://www.m-audio.com/index.php?do=support&tab=driver&serie_ID=6&PID=fa76e34e9f3de0b8b3d0b6f1e7b32912&OS=x90#tabs

Not what you think

By Gabriela Ruiz

from ny

Comments about M-Audio Pro Tools Recording Studio:

I thought this would come with everything ready to use. It's really complicated if you have no prior knowledge, and you need a MIDI keyboard or key studio to get other effects. I still am not sure how to use it but I wish that I never got it.

Awesome mobile interface for Garageband

By Miles Larini

from winnetka ca

Comments about M-Audio Pro Tools Recording Studio:

I have recorded numerous songs playing guitar,bass, keys and vox with this interface on my macbook/Garageband. you can take it anywhere its usb powered. I have a Nady starpower $10 mic and the recordings are good enough that my friends and band mates dont even care they just want to record more! The "pro tools" software belongs in the trash. total joke. The price for an interface that works this well is priceless.

im getting there

By Christopher Eyde

from Peoria, Arizona

Comments about M-Audio Pro Tools Recording Studio:

i got this to use as recording and part of the reason i don't like it is my fault because i thought it wold be as easy as plugging in and recording i'm starting to get the hang of it down but its certainly not an easy program to use it is what professionals use and people go to school to learn pro tools so figuring it out on your own can be pretty difficult. The instruction manual isn't very specific either so that's a waste of time but with help from a few youtube videos you can get it i would start with this one. Overall after figuring out some of the basics i starting to get the hang of it. It will be worth it in the end!

NOT user friendly

By Bill

from Durham, NC

Comments about M-Audio Pro Tools Recording Studio:

I got this as a "starting" point to learn how to record. I had to install the software 6 times to get it to work right. I soon found out the program is WAY to complicated to figure out. The interface is real thin and cheap plastic. I made a mistake buying this. This is NOT for beginners.

Pro Tools M-Powered Essential 8.03 will not load.

By Michael Colegrove

from Taunton MA

Comments about M-Audio Pro Tools Recording Studio:

Check the Technical Support Web Site for problems with the software. http://duc.avid.com/showthread.php?t=293403 I wasn't able to get the software to work on a COMPAQ computer with Windows 7, an AMD processor, Duel processor, 3GB Ram. In some cases it seems to be an intermittent issue.
