I'm glad you guys are finding this DIY I did helpful!

It seems like I did it a lifetime ago.

Since I wrote it:

Had 2 kids: 2 and 4 years old!
Built and finally started a successful recording studio.

So, no time to drive anymore!

Peace!

Greg

I use my MacBook Pro for editing in ProTools 9, the MacBook is an awesome computer for audio!

But my studio uses a couple of giant PT HD rigs.

Let me know if you have any questions.

We mainly record soundtracks for film and TV. But also do high-end music production.
