    I think you need Pro Tools compatible hardware to use ProTools, thereby eliminating the free part. There is an M Box that provides ins/outs and is one of the cheap solutions.


    If you find a way to obtain and/or run it for free, please PM me. I'd be very interested.

    Sorry, no. It also used to be very picky hardware-wise. It was one of the reasons I never tried it.

    Moved to Recording Gear and Equipment.

    PT Free is not for XP and never will, so you either buy a used Digi 001 on Ebay or downgrade to Win 98.
