In this video, I am going to show you how to connect the pieces of your Pro…Tools studio system.…First, if you haven't already, install Pro Tools according to the directions…that came with your software. …This process also involves authorizing your iLok key, and that process is shown…in another video in this course.…If you have an external FireWire hard drive, plug that in first.…Plug in the power and turn it on.…Then connect it via FireWire to your computer.…Note that USB hard drives are not compatible for using with Pro Tools.…
