Re: Accessible Audio Production Apps
While Avid's Website is not very well thought out from an accessibility standpoint, Pro Tools definitely is, and with the introduction of FloTools to do things native PT accessibility cannot or does not do well, this program is very accessible now.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
As far as choices of which Pro Tools to own, take the standard version. PT First is a bit on the light side--doesn't come with many extras such as audio plugins or instruments. You'll pay more for standard Pro Tools, but it's an industry standard on Macintosh computers, so if you're a Mac person, this is definitely the direction to take.
Of course, there's always Reaper, which is cross-platform between OS X and Windows, but the Windows implementation is better (in my unhumble opinion).
If you search the Internet long enough and hard enough, you'll find articles and videos with titles like "Why I Switched From Pro Tools to Reaper," and vice versa, so it really comes down to look and feel, although PT people will always hawk their system as being the best, even though it's unwieldy sometimes. I've been dabbling in it for sixteen months now, and while I can get stuff done in it at least with MIDI, I have had absolutely no experience recording audio with it because (A) that's not my thing, and (B) I don't sing or play an acoustic instrument that can fit in my crackerbox-palace apartment, or know anyone who does and needs to have it recorded.
