    Hello all,

    This post is also listed in the Audio Professionals forum.

    I have an Adrenaline DNA system with which i use the Digidesign Command 8 control surface for automation recordings.

    The system shipped with a free version of Pro Tools LE + TDM, but that was it. I have tired to install it and only get a message When i try and load it saying that the Digidesign Hardware cannot be found!?!? I know it will no doubt be something stupid like it needs an Mbox or Digi001 or something however the Command 8 is Digidesign Hardware and if not classed as such then why would they ship the Pro Tools software if you can’t then use it?

    Has anyway had experience of this before or do they know a solution etc etc

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    The command 8 is not an input / output device. It’s just a control surface. So you are correct, you need an MBOX or MBOX2.

    Many items you buy wil give you ProTools LE. The DVToolkit also comes with ProTools LE, but again, it assumes you have an input / output box to connect it to.

    Pro Tools LE cannot live in the same box with MCA.
    Check the “readme” file with Adrenaline.
