Protools software is great. However when it comes to the converters in the hardware it is no good. If you want pro it will NOT be in ANY DIGIDESIGN Hardware that supports LE. I have it and I know it. Yor best bet if you have the le hardware is to go through the adat option. CONVERTERS make a recording. Yes it's true pre's do to, but what good is a pre if your going through a bad converter?
