There are a number of great DAW's (Digital Audio Workstations) on the market that you can use to make great home or professional recordings. Here are 4 quick reasons why I suggest you learn Pro Tools.
1. Pro Tools is widely accepted as the universal recording platform among industry professionals. When we were building our studio, Thirteen Degrees Studio in Franklin, TN, we had to make a decision about which recording platform to use. With few exceptions, a survey of the top engineers pointed us towards Pro Tools.
2. Once you learn the basics of Pro Tools on a home studio package, you will be able to move seamlessly through to the more advanced Pro Tools systems without having to learn a whole new system. The more advance Pro Tools set ups use the exact same layout and functions as the starter programs.
3. Because Pro Tools is so widely accepted, you will be able to share files and sessions with 98% of everyone. I would venture to guess that nearly 100% of all commercial studios have a Pro Tools rig in their arsenal, if not as their primary platform. It is becoming more and more common among home studio enthusiasts to use Pro Tools, as well.
4. Perhaps because I learned how to engineer on Pro Tools, I find it to be the most intuitive computer recording software on the market. When you open a session you get a blank canvas without a palette of unnecessary tracks, sends, instruments, etc. It is very simple to learn how to quickly set up a session for the exact configuration you are working with. You will also find that Pro Tools operates similarly to a word processing program where you cut and paste musical phrases like you would words. Finding a Pro Tools school will be much easier than finding a school that teaches any other recording software.
"Great atmosphere in the studio. Extremely comfortable and easy to work and learn. The pro tools class was awesome. Dave Dillbeck and Ken Barken were great teachers and the class taught me so many tricks. And it was at a pace that was easy to understand. Extremely high quality studio. Definitely the place to be in Nashville if you are looking to record. or to take any of the classes that they offer here."...Jason Cohen (Drummer)
"Last weekend I took a course in Pro Tools and it was great! The course content was incredibly useful and I am confident that it will undoubtedly be beneficial to my musical career and ambitions. Dave and Ken are veterans in the music industry and have a lot of wisdom and valuable information to offer students. I highly recommend taking a course at the beautiful Thirteen Degrees Studio!"...
