Hi! I’m Tad Donley and I’m speaking in
behalf of Expert Village. There are different characteristics of systems, ProTools, ProTools
LE and now Nuendo. I was offered a job as a teacher at Port Author College and in their
curriculum they are teaching ProTools LE, ProTools, the big one and Nuendo and Nuendo
III is the most advanced right now, but I have a Nuendo II. I have Nuendo myself and
I will tell you why. I worked with ProTools for seven years. You have to put Neve and
SSL and you have got to put some pretty heavy stuff, some pretty heavy compression and outboard
gear in order just to get the sound halfway warm. You know ProTools costs a lot of money.
If you want to get a halfway decent controller it costs $35, 000 for the HD III controller,
that is just one piece of equipment, but you know, if you want to do it and charge $100,
lets hope we get the $100 an hour. You know, I charge $45 an hour and $40 an hour for five
hour block. I could charge $70. I could charge $100 but the equipment that I have and the
experience that I have, I have been in this for 25 years and I was a lead singer so I
make sure the singer sounds good all the time, I make sure every step of the recording process
is right so when I come out with the finished product, mix and master, it is professional
and better than a lot of the stuff that is out there.
