Default What version to use with an M-Audio ProjectMix?

I'm looking at getting the ProjectMix I/O interface/surface for my computer, but everything with regards to Pro Tools seems to be awkward and difficult to get hold of.

Basically, I'm asking what version of Pro Tools everyone thinks I should get to use with the interface.

I've taken a look at the full version on DV (http://www.dv247.com/computer-music-...tools-9--80618). Do you reckon this would be suitable, or is there a cheaper alternative that would be better for me?

I guess I should say something about what I need - I'm just recording physical instruments, though I start using some MIDI stuff in the future. I don't need a vast amount of plug-ins either.

Budget isn't really a problem, but around £200 would be nice.

Thanks for now! Happy to answer any questions that will help.

Hi edmedmoped. I've removed your link directing to a DV competitor - under this Forum's rules, they're not allowed.

Oops, apologies, accidentally deleted the comparative part of your post, that to the actual Pro Tools site (which IS allowed). My bad, please stick that particular link up should you wish..

Iím guessing you bought the unit second hand because it retails with Protools M-powered. You could go with Protools M-Powered 8 personally I would go with the Protools 9 version you linked reason being if you decide to change the audio interface M-Powered will only support M-Audio gear.

Sounds good - it would be good if I could get Pro Tools 9 cheaper from upgrading M-Powered 8 after I get it. Is that possible?

I think I read that you cant upgrade from m-powered. I could be wrong but worth checking on the DUC.

Would this do the trick, and does anyone know the limitations of this? Apologies for the many questions!
