There’s no doubt that anyone who’s familiar with the standard Pro Tools LE or HD will be surprised at how cutdown SE is, but the idea here is to create something that is intuitive for a beginner and can deliver quick and effective results.
SE offers up to 16 audio tracks and eight instrument tracks (from a choice of over 100 software instruments). That’s plenty to be getting on with, and at the heart of the software you have the solidity and reliability of the tried and tested Pro Tools engine.
To get you started there is a comprehensive and clear series of tutorial videos which cover every aspect of the program (you’ll find these in the Quick Start window on boot-up). What you won’t find is an in-depth text based manual to read in bed or to quickly refer to while in an open song.
