But I'd really really like to know whether I need to fork out close to $2000 to have a decent interface, Pro Tools and the ability to import OMFs etc?
Buying an Mbox 2 Pro is affordable enough, but, to import OMFs, do ABSO-POSA_LUTELY need to buy this darned DV Toolkit??!!
Does anybody have a work around?
I do most of my sound design in Ableton Live, and when I need to deal with OMFs, I import them into Soundtrack Pro 2(which handles OMFs) and then bring my sounds in there... That also helps when edits are changed etc.
What do you guy do..? I'm referring to those of us not using ProTools, in any way shape or form.
I'm very very keen on buying ProTools, and would like to get a Proper interface with it. The Mbox 2 seems a good bet.
(Is this a stupid question?)
