Protools 10 UpgradeLittle tough because I had to download from the site with a slow internet connection. I had a little bit of a learning curve to re-associate my plug-in libraries and sound interface function. Avid offered assistance but I figured it out before they could assist. The New Protools 10 is awesome I was not fond of software recording because you could not get the dynamics from computer recording without other third party mastering software. Now with the built in channel strips for EQ and other features I am achieving the same stereo punch, dynamics and can now do mastered mixing and mastering without as much effort with Protools 10.

Avid Pro Tools 10Wonderful Software Program. A bit intimadating at first glance, but the learning curve gets steeper as the hours of practice grow. It's going to take you a LONG TIME to get into all aspects of this program.
Now don't get confused about what it does, it's forte is post production editing and mixing. Yes, you can record and you can sequence, but sequencing is not what it's really about. If you want simple "sequence recording to multiple channels with great ease" then go with something like StudioOne-2.5. Very easy and quite impressive. Then if you need to, pull your tracks over to Pro Tools 10 and edit away . . . forever and forever . . . to whatever degree your ability allows . . . it's endless. Abit pricey, but very COMPLETE as far as mixing and editing goes. It is the bench mark in this regard.
Money well spent, if you are really going to get into heavy post production and mixing.

PRO TOOLS 10 ROCKS!!!Man, what can I say that has not been said. Anyone that has pro tools 9MP and wants to upgrade, go ahead and do it. At some point you will anyway. This upgrade is very stable. So glad I did. Now I can really go to work!!
You guys at Sweetwater are fantastic!! Keep up the great work doing what you do. Thank you Avid also.

PROTOOLS 10Protools is really the only game in town when it comes to digital recording. I crossgraded to v 10 from 8.5 M Powered and I'm glad I did, there are many cool new features. Like all of us who use ProTools, I'm hoping a 64 bit version is on the way.!

Superb Upgrade for Pro ToolsAfter talking with colleagues and hearing reviews of Pro Tools 10, I decided to upgrade my PT9 set-up (I'm usually not one to "chase" software upgrades). And while I'm happy with all the new features so far, the Channel Strip is, by itself, worth the price of admission. It has taken hours off my time by simply selecting this amazing plug-in. It sounds absolutely incredible and will give you the results you need for your projects. Simply amazing!!

Another Great Discovery - 32 bit FloatingDon't mean to babble on, but I just salvaged an old sesssion recorded in another DAW a couple of years back that was tracked way too hot (my ignorance at the time) - brought it into PT 10, coverted to 32 bit and the headroom I needed was there. Session will now be going on a CD. It could not have used before.

Upgrade from Protools LE8 to Protools 10I held off doing this for a year. I wish I hadn't. I completed a project in the fall that I now wish I had version 10 to complete. Once your are in the flow of 10 (which takes no time if you've used PT before), the edit and mix processes are just so much quicker. The channel strip plug-in is excellent and I love the new clip gain and real time fades. Everything is just - well - faster and cleaner. And I really liked version 8.
My Sales Engineer is Brandon Eden and he never steers me wrong. It was all he said it would be. I did need some new drivers for my 003+, but one call to Sweetcare took care of that and I was up, running, recording and mixing the same day I gave Brandon the go ahead. Sweetwater is the best CS company I've ever dealt with!

Great!I really like PT 10. I had 7 for years (& even started on 5). The mix engine with delay compensation actually SOUNDS better than previous versions. And the new features like clip gain, Auto Delay Compensation, multi-track quantize, etc. are great.

ProTools 10Well worth the time and money to upgrade from MP9.
So far no issues with program performance. Even though the HD version has more time saving features, I stayed with the Native version. Over all very happy with the product.

World most advanced DAWIt's awesome. I love it too much even I decide to use it primarily in my composing, mixing and mastering all my projects. With 3 payments from sweetwater is more affordable. I upgraded from my ProTools 8 M-Powered. Huge improvement are clip gain based, real-time crossfade and the ability to utilize disk cache were blown away. Channeltrip plug-in is awesome, sound great and easy to use, save much time when using it. One thing I hate is the price for upgrading the product. We bought it once and we have to pay for an upgrade itself for nearly 2/3. It's kinda odd.

Pro Tools 10Though not 64bit, Pro Tools 10 has exceeded my expectations & raises the bar again! Can't wait for more AAX integration & of coursethat Grammy.

ProTools Upgade to V10Updgrade from 7 to 10 was a little harder than expected (Ilok update, OS update, Drivers update) but everythign went well int he end and I like the new features of 10. Clip gain is cool and i think i have latency and CPU tuned in now. Worth it so far.
To me - Sweetwater is the ONLY way to go - if you have a problem they have great people that have seen it all. I dont have time to spend piecing things together and researching everything before doing it.
