I bought these purely to get into Pro TOols at a cheap price, and now I am hooked. I use a Celereon with one gig of ram, not a powerhouse, but it works well for my production studio.


The manual, as with most Digidesign things, was hard to read, thankfully the unit installed with no issues the first time I loaded it.


The last version of Pro Tools supported is 6.4 and so far I have not had any issues with it, latency is fairly high if monitoring with effects and I have been able to use twenty four tracks at a time with my surrent setup.



If you are looking to get into a home recording system and not break the bank, you might seriously want to look into the Digi-001. Yes, it is not the latest and greatest unit by Digidesign and no it will not work on any Pro Tools version above version six four. But for the price you can find these things, most people can live with the shortcomings.

I currently own THREE of these units that I use. I have one in my main studio. I have one set up in a live rig and one as a back up. Hold on to your belts, folks – I have done some patient auction house hunting and I have a total of $350 dollar U.S. in all three of them INCLUDING the software.

They are smaller than the 002 and the 003 so they fit nicely in small home or production studios, the have eight analog inputs and eight digital inputs via ADAT light pipe and two more via SPIDF, there are two XLR connectors with switch able phantom power and they contain the rack ears to mount them.

I ask you. What more do you need for that price?

I have recorded a full fifteen CDs with this set up and more live gigs than I can mention and they have never even so much as once had an issue.

Now the Pro Tools folks say they don’t recommend anything other than an “approved” or “certified” computer system to run the units. Here’s the thing, I am running one of the units, my MAIN one on a Celeron processor with only a gig of RAM. The only difference I notice between that system and the Pentium four I use live is, I can’t run as many plug-ins before it starts to lock up. There ARE ways around that though through pre-processing the individual tracks instead of live processing.
