The Digidesign Digi 001 is the original audio interface for Pro Tools. I don't know the year that this was first released, but it's definitely been a while now. The main reason that the Digi 001 is no longer really a viable option is because it's not Firewire or USB, but connects to your computer via a D-Sub and also has a serial port. You won't be able to use this with your lap top or newer computers for the most part, rendering the Digi 001 somewhat obsolete. Putting this aside and assuming that you've got a system that can support this, the Digi 001 isn't a bad interface.

UTILIZATION

The make up of the Digidesign Digi 001 has a good amount going on, as it has more connections than most are going to use. It's got two mic preamps that have dual XLR / 1/4" inputs and phantom power. Each has a gain knob and a pad at -25 db. There's also a headphone output in the front. In the back there are MIDI connections, 8 outputs including for your monitors, and six other 1/4" line inputs. As you can tell, it's a pretty complete interface considering it's size.

GETTING STARTED

The sound of the preamps in the Digidesign Digi 001 aren't great but they'll get the job done for your small project or demo studio. I can't say that I'd use it for anything serious unless you had an external preamp, as they do sound quite digital and a bit harsh at times. This is going to be the case with most audio interface preamps, although the 002 and 003 definitely sound a bit better.

OVERALL OPINION

While certainly a bit outdated at this point, the Digidesign Digi 001 can still be a somewhat viable audio interface if you've got an older computer and are just looking for something to get ideas down. I'm not sure if it will run with the newest versions of Pro Tools, although I don't see why it wouldn't. The good news about the Digi 001 is that it is super super cheap if you can find a used one. It's only worth it though if you don't think you're going to be upgrading your demo studio any time soon...
