Question 1 - Are you using Pro Tools HD or Pro Tools Native software?
Question 2 - Do you have the Live Sound Production Toolkit license?
Question 3 - Are you running the Avid S3L or S6L?
Question 4 - Are you using Pro Tools HD Native or HDX cards with interfaces connected via DigiLink?
Where can I get my new Pro Tools 12.6HD, Avid S3L or Avid S6L System from?
We recommend that you should go to an Avid approved dealer whether you are in the market for a new Pro Tools HD system, with or without a 3rd party interface, or if the Avid S3L or Avid S6L solution appeals to you instead.
