ProTools and the DV Toolkit

ProTools and the DV Toolkit

In their current state, Xpress Pro's audio editing capabilities are not very formidable, especially since you cannot apply more than one AudioSuite plug-in to an audio clip at a time. So if you'll be sound designing your DV projects and creating soundtracks, you may want to consider getting a sound editing application such as ProTools (Digidesign.com). Owned by Avid, ProTools is an obvious favorite for Xpress Pro editors because of its easy file interchange capabilities.

For sound editing, ProTools LE with the Mbox (a USB-connected audio In/Out device) is the entry-level product and very popular among current Xpress DV and Xpress Pro editors. However, to import Xpress Pro OMF files into ProTools LE, you need to buy the DV Toolkit option, which facilitates OMF/AAF transfer and comes with additional film-related plug-ins. (See the next section, “AudioSuite Plug-ins.”)
