projectmix i/o

Its arrived and i've been mucking around with it for a few days now. Its rigged up and i've retired my Tascam US-428 and Fostex 4-track.

Test 1: Plays mp3 - Sounds great. I'm not sure if its my imagination, but it does sound great via my reference monitors which sometimes had some noise from the connectors of the 4-track.

Test 2: HUI controls work with sequencer. This is the first time I'm using pro tools so I'm not sure how the jog wheel works at this point. Right now I'm getting frustrated with markers and not navigating correctly. It doesn't have the intuitiveness of cubase, which works great and its good having all that inputs on the firewire bus instead. No issues with how the jog wheel works there.

Test 3: Changing setup while computer is running. The moral of the story is do not when any audio application is running. My computer had a history of audio driver blue screen's before so I'm not sure if its just this machine, but good to know that i can turn on of off the audio interface to change modes and not reboot.


Important notes:

I bought protools 6.8 and realised that its not compatible, however you can download the full protools 7.1 software from the m-audio site and use the same key to start it up.
