Pro Tools is an industry standard software used for recording music. I made the decision that I would not be trying to do everything myself and produce a half-assed outcome, done 'on the cheap'. Despite having worked as a recording engineer many years ago, I knew that there would be a long learning curve to try to get up to speed with current technology. I chose to work with skilled engineers who were doing this for a living and only downloaded Pro Tools for recording ideas and basic parts.
What a learning curve!
