Pro Tools – the World’s Leading Digital Audio Workstation

I believe that Digidesign’s Pro Tools system for recording, editing and mixing audio is one of the

most significant systems to have been developed within the last century for professional audio

work. Computer-based audio recording equipment has been available since the latter part of the

1980s and the Digidesign system was not the first to be developed. It is also true that there are

many competing systems available. However, Pro Tools is now undoubtedly the leading such

system used for professional music recording around the globe.
