Great Resources: Avid’s Compatibility Documents, Knowledgebase, and In-Application Help

You might have noticed that although I’ve talked about desirable qualities in a DAW system, I haven’t mentioned many specific details about what kind of hardware you should be using (things such as minimum CPU speed and chipset types). I apologize if I seem evasive on the subject, but the truth is that the landscape of computer-based products transforms and grows so rapidly that any specs I quote here might well be out of date by the time you read this. Don’t despair, though! Avid has provided the help you need to build the Pro Tools system you want in the form of an up-to-date list of compatible hardware. You can find this list on Avid’s Web site, at the following URL: www.avid.com/compatibility.

To view more technical information and alerts, you can also take a look at the Avid Knowledgebase. On the top of the Avid home page (www.avid.com), click on the Support and Services link. Then, on the Support and Services page, click on the Knowledgebase link along the right margin under the heading “Pro Tools Support.” Once you’re in the Knowledgebase, you can search in a number of ways, including by product or keyword. Whether you’re designing a Pro Tools system or troubleshooting one, the Knowledgebase is a trove of technical tidbits!
