In this video, I want to show you the proper way to power up and power down…your Pro Tools system.…Here is the order for powering up your Pro Tools system:…First, turn on your control surface, if you have one.…Next, turn on your external hard drives.…Third, turn on your audio interface, if you're using one, unless it draws power…from your computer via USB or FireWire.…Then turn on your computer, flip on your monitors, and then it's safe to launch Pro Tools.…Here's the proper order for powering down your Pro Tools system:…First, Quit Pro Tools.…
Then power down your monitors.…Then you can turn off your computer, your MIDI gear, and your audio interface.…Finally, power down your control surface, and then your hard drives last.…I highly recommend observing these steps to avoid damaging your hard drives,…creating large pop sounds from your monitors, and unnecessarily losing data or…communication with your interface.…
