ProTools is a professional audio engineering software program made by Digidesign. Although it's used by top-notch pros in the radio industry, ProTools has a fairly easy learning curve, making it just as good for beginners.
ProTools software comes paired with an Mbox, which is a separate hardware unit made by Digidesign that connects the source of your sound (like a minidisc player, microphone or DAT player) to your computer.
ProTools has versions for both the Apple and Windows platforms. This tutorial is written for the ProTools version used on Apple computers, but the Windows version of the software is very similar.
