Several months ago, MOTU announced Windows compatibility, but they only released a Mac version of this long-time composer’s favorite audio and MIDI host. But today, out of seemingly nowhere, MOTU have announced that the Windows version is now available. (Yes, I know that’s a picture of the Mac...

We used to use not only a different coding language and database for the backend, but a completely different content management system. So I was hoping to find an easier solution. Unfortunately, no progress has been made on that type of solution. So I’ve decided...

Hopefully nobody was paying attention and didn’t realize that I said “coming soon” on part 2……but I guess that would mean……….that my audience isn’t listening. Irony is a humorous little bugger.

It was probably the first audio host that I grew a deep appreciation for, and it allowed me to enjoy making music in ways that hadn’t happened before. And this was in the very early days of the software. I held faithfully to the Tracktion bandwagon, watching it receive almost daily updates, changing the landscape of the host world...

As a Pro Tools user, I’ve stood by and watched many thing get added, including the long-time-coming breaking of the shackles of Avid/Digidesign hardware. It seems that Avid is finally seeing that they need to evolve, as they have announced possibly the largest update yet with version 11. Click here to see the official Pro...

Yep, so have we. The truth is, ProRec is run by enthusiasts who have day jobs doing audio-related and other jobs we love. We don’t just write about this stuff, we ARE this stuff.
