Hey guys. I have been using Nuendo ever since i entered this field and now with time, i am moving to protools. This might sound a bit immature, but i have no idea about how to start up? Which imac/ mac book pro should i buy? which protools version is the best? What all hardware do you require to make it run smoothly? How can i get myself going on protools. I know these are all basic things i should be knowing, but its the first time i'l be working on a mac. Thanks.
First decide whether you want a desktop or a laptop.
After that just purchase the model you can afford, all of the current iMacs and MacBook Pros will run Pro Tools 10.
I run Pro Tools 10 on a 2.3 GHz i5 MacBook Pro and the software runs really smoothly. I also use PT on a 4 year old iMac as well as a 6 year old Mac Pro, I even have PT running on a 5 year old MacBook.
After that you will need an iLok, and that's all you need to get started.
