Product Description

Digi 002 - FireWire-Based Pro Tools LE Music Production System
Working with your computer through a single FireWire connection, Digi 002 pairs Pro Tools LE software with an integrated control surface to provide you with an ideal, finger-friendly music production environment. Record, edit, process, mix, and master your projects with hands-on efficiency, then tuck Digi 002 under your arm, take it to a gig, and use it as an 8x4x2 digital mixer complete with EQ, dynamics, delay, and reverb with snapshots. Experience the power of Pro Tools in an all-in-one solution for under $2,500 USD.

Digi 002 Basics
Introducing Digi 002, Digidesign's first FireWire-enabled Pro Tools workstation to include an integrated control surface. Digi 002 offers novices and pros alike hands-on command of any project, easy connectivity via FireWire and integrated I/O, portability, dual mode functionality, and full session compatibility with other Pro Tools systems, from Mbox to Pro Tools|HD. In addition, Digi 002 features a 32-track Pro Tools LE interface based on the same award-winning software used by professionals worldwide. With its spectrum of features and affordable price point, Digi 002 is without peer in the audio production world.

The Essentials
Digi 002 is a full-featured studio-in-a-box that works with your Window XP Home or Mac OS9.x computer to give you all you need for superior MIDI and audio production. Comprised of a single unit that includes a comprehensive control surface along with analog, digital, and MIDI I/O, Digi 002 communicates with your computer via a single FireWire cable (included). Pro Tools LE software comprises the final component, offering 32 tracks of record and playback, 128 MIDI tracks, real-time plug-in support, and a host of additional features. From beginning to end, Digi 002 places you in an ideal position to realize any project.

Enhancers
While Digi 002 is fully functional in and of itself, many products are available to increase the scope and performance of your Digi 002-based Pro Tools LE environment. Although many plug-ins are included in the 002 package, other high-powered RTAS (real-time) and AudioSuite (file-based) plug-ins, designed and built by Digidesign and our Development Partners, are available for virtually every signal processing, sound design, and specialized editing purpose. These software applications work in conjunction with Pro Tools in both non- and real-time formats, emulating and often improving upon the hardware counterparts that they frequently emulate.

The addition of a FireWire drive is also a wise choice, improving the performance of your system by virtue of increased throughput and data transfer speeds. And you always have access to upgrades and updates to Pro Tools LE software, typically available for free to registered users, as we continue to develop new ways of improving your Pro Tools LE experience.

Digi 002 System
Getting your Digi 002 system up and running involves a quick, simple, 4-step process. First, you load your Pro Tools LE software onto your computer. Second, you connect your computer to the Digi 002 unit with the included FireWire cable (PC users will need to first purchase a compatible FireWire card). Third, you power up Digi 002. Fourth, you connect your signal sources ? mics, instrument cables, patch cords, etc. ? to the I/O on the back of Digi 002. Lastly, you launch Pro Tools LE software. At that point, you're ready to go. Your audio and MIDI information travel back and forth between your computer and Digi 002 via the FireWire cable, along with information generated by or returned to the Digi 002 control surface. Any changes you make via your Pro Tools software interface are reflected on the control surface and vice versa. It's that simple.

Digi 002 includes 2 modes of operation: Pro Tools mode, described above, and Standalone mode. With the push of a button, your Digi 002 unit enters Standalone mode and becomes an 8x4x2 digital mixer, complete with EQ, dynamics, delay, and reverb with snapshots. Pro Tools LE is disabled in this mode, and your computer is no longer needed for Digi 002 to operate.

With its FireWire connectivity, getting your Digi 002 system up and running is comfortably simple. Plug one end of the included FireWire cable into your computer's FireWire port (the first, if there are more than one) and the other into the Digi 002 hardware unit, power up, launch Pro Tools, and you're ready to go. PC users will need to first purchase a compatible FireWire card. Check out the diagrams below for a couple of configuration examples.

Digi 002 provides an unparalleled environment for your creativity: the award-winning Pro Tools interface; 32 tracks of recording and playback; a built-in analog, digital, and MIDI I/O interface; a comprehensive integrated control surface; and support for a host of powerful plug-ins. Once you've plugged in your sound sources (mic, keyboard, guitar, and DAT, in this case), you use Pro Tools LE software, Digi 002's I/O and control surface, and the power of your computer to capture, manipulate, and deliver your music to your heart's content. Your audio data is stored on your computer's hard drive or an external hard drive, and is instantly accessible via the Pro Tools sessions you create. Aside from speakers and/or headphones to hear what you're doing, no other hardware or software is needed.

Digi 002 offers more power and flexibility than ever before by currently shipping with Pro Tools LE software and a bundle of plug-ins. Plug-ins included in the v.1 Plug-In Pack are: Digidesign D-Fi, Digidesign D-FX, Digidesign Maxim, IK Multimedia Amplitube, IK Multimedia SampleTank LE, Native Instruments PR0-52, and Waves Renaissance Collection.

*** NOTE: Plug-ins are subject to change. When our current stock is depleted, Digidesign is switching to a v.2 Plug-In Pack that features less/different plug-ins.

Digidesign Digi 002 Customer Review
Quality: PURE PLASTIC, BUT SEEMS VERY DURABLE. COMETICALLY, DIGIDESIGN COULD HAVE SPICED IT UP, BUT I GUESS THAT THEY WERE LOOKING AT QUALITY FIRST. Value: YOU CANNOT BEAT THIS! YOU CAN DO JUST ABOUT EERYTHING WITH THIS MACHINE. I WOULD HAVE LOVED FOR IT TO BE ABLE TO HANDLE MORE THAN 32 TRACKS, BUT AT THIS POINT I HAVE LEARNED TO GET AROUND WITH 32. Manufacturer Support: I HAD ONE PROBLEM WITH THE VERSION OF SOFT WARE THAT WAS SENT TO ME, I CALLED SUPPORT AND THE NEW UPDATED SOFTWARE WAS SENT DIRECTLY OVER NIGHT. I WAS SERIOUSLY IMPRESSED. The Wow Factor: THE FIRST TIME I LEARNED ABOUT IT, I WANTED IT. NOW THAT I HAVE IT, I SAY THAT IT WAS WORTH EVERY PENNY. Overall: OVERALL I THINK THAT IT IS A MUST FOR HOME STUDIO SETTINGS. I WILL CONTINUE TO USE THIS PRODUCT UNTIL IT DIES, BUT I WILL CHECK OUT THE NEW COMMAND 8.
Style of Music: HIP HOP

"Amazing studio all in one. Can't beat it for the price and features."
Sound: Has focusrite pre's and some GREAT sounding converters. Really sounds great and I have used my share of recording equipment. Feature: SOOO many features. For goodness sakes it is the industry standard Pro Tools. Quality: Very solid. It sits in my studio and probably will never move. Value: Alittle expensive. I bought it for $1850 used and seriously, it is worth every damn penny. The Wow Factor: Such great appeal. Such endless limits with Pro Tools. Now you can control it, record, use midi, and endless effects all from one unit. HOw much more could you want out of a recording studio for your house? Overall: I will have this board for quite a few years to come.
Style of Music: Trance and House but record and engineer EVERYTHING

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
