Pro Tools woes, Logic 8 smoothness

I'm trying to migrate to my own hosted blog so I can integrate a website.  shhh.. don't tell blogger/google.  But I may still use it in the future.. 

Anyway, I'm working on commercial and promo video tracks using.. LOGIC Pro 8.  After finally getting a new rig together thanks to the M-Audio Lightbridge and outboard Focusrite pre's with converters, things are sounding great.  All of Logic's, stability, included instruments and plugins make it almost a no-brainer.  

But I've ween wanting to get back to Pro Tools, mostly out of habit, and I found the perfect interface.  The Lightbridge (cheapest- $360 -  was FL Music Co.) is the only unit that closes the gap between LE/M-Powered and HD.  32 I/O and no HD 10k + investment... wow!

That old Digi 001 is finally going up on Ebay and into the hands of someone who can use it.  Really with external pre's via ADAT lightpipe it should make a great cheap effective setup for someone with XP and the last version of tools (5. something) that works with it.  

Getting Pro Tools to work in Vista, even on my sweet MacBook Pro, has been a grand nightmare.  I've had to disable everything except plug and play and the M-Audio background software (not even sure if this is necessary).  This has made me further appreciate the ease and smoothness of Logic, which just worked immediately with no glitches, dropouts or overloads but which I've hated up until exactly a week ago since past versions were so clumsy. Finally with everything disabled (in msconfig) PT works.  But I wouldn't want to rely on it for clients in the room.

Waiting for the Trident 8t-16 hopefully.  No more summing in PT, and a real board with real knobs that do real things.  Counting down the days....

Good day, sun shines!
There have were times of troubles when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
I have never thought that there weren't any need in large initial investment.
Now, I feel good, I started to get real income.
It's all about how to select a proper companion who uses your money in a right way - that is incorporate it in real deals, parts and divides the profit with me.

You can ask, if there are such firms? I have to answer the truth, YES, there are. Please get to know about one of them: [url=]Online Investment Blog[/url]

Seeing these kind of posts reminds me of just how technology truly is ubiquitous in this day and age, and I am 99% certain that we have passed the point of no return in our relationship with technology.

I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Ethical concerns aside... I just hope that as memory gets cheaper, the possibility of copying our memories onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's a fantasy that I dream about every once in a while.
