kind of like taking bad photos with an expensive camera.

or buying a mad pricey guitar and suck at guitar.


Yes, that's a good comparison.

For an amateur musician, probably not. The problem with mixing with headphones is that it will most likely sound strange on proper speakers. I use headphones for mixng as well, but only as a point of reference after doing a rough mix, or to check for errors.

I tend to give my music a rough mix with my headphones, (bear in mind they were $700), and then I will put it through my brother speakers.

Then back and forth till i get something Im happy with, which is time consuming as every minute detail is brought to the fore. Which isn't necessarily a good or bad thing. Depends how audiophile you are.

What is your recording resolution? I guess the standard is 96/44.1.

Yeah, I have an Mbox 2. I've been recording with it since March, and I mean, that's happened. But it usually happens once or twice and then I can continue recording. However, when I tried to do it yesterday, I tried for at least a half-hour, to no avail.

Try and reset all settings to the default ones. Or re-install PT?

I'm going to try again later today. If it keeps doing that, I probably will re-install. Thanks.

maybe maxing out your RAM.

if youre recording at 24/96, try going down to 16/44.1. it doesnt have as much headroom that way, but I mean thats the bit and sample rate that CDs run at, so it doesnt really matter.

It can be useful for a bunch of things. The best thing about it is that it can be used to capture an absolutely clean signal from whatever you're recording. This is great if you want more options later on when mixing, say you record a split signal simultaneously from your amp and one into your DI box. This way you have the amplified signal, as well as the unaltered one.

You can even use the unaltered signal to re-amp the track if you don't have any plug-ins that can emulate an amplifier.

That suggestion only works for recording. It's hard to do if you're making electronic music on your computer at home.
