What do you all recommend as a basic post-sound setup for handling simpler media projects? I primarily work as a production sound mixer, but I'd like to add sweetening and some sound design to my services when I help out student filmmakers or do web content. And I also just want to learn more about the process, and would prefer to stick with a DAW like ProTools since it seems to be such an industry standard. Bare in mind that I do not have a studio and was planning to do this work from home with my 15" MacBook Pro (Mac OS X version 10.7.4; 2.4 GHz Intel Core i5; 4GB 1333 MHz DDR3 memory), a good set of headphones, and a zoom h4n for recording ambience and effects. Would this starter kit from B&H along with a 2 terabyte external HD be worth it for what I want to achieve? http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/730217-REG/M_Audio_Pro_Tools_Essential_Studio.html Or would I need to go straight to ProTools 10 and a control surface if I have aspirations of handling any type of video work. Help!!! Thank you always.
