Getting set up with the Digidesign Smack LE plug-in couldn't have been easier. I bought it with an iLok, so it was already synced to that. You need to install the iLok driver to your computer and then there should be no problems. I would recommend following the steps in the manual that come with it, they are very simple.


I run this plug-in with Pro Tools 7 LE software on my Hewlett Packard computer with a 3.0 Ghz processor and 1 GB Ram. I haven't had any problems running this plug-in with my set up and it has been very stable. It runs quicker than I thought it was going to, but that could be due to my computer, among other things.


I've had this plug-in for about 6 months now and it is my best compression plug-in. I use it on all of my lead vocals and bass guitar, and it also sounds great on drums and electric and acoustic guitars. I hadn't tried out any other compression plug-ins other than the ones that come with Pro Tools, and I definitely like this one better than any that come with Pro Tools. Its so rich and full sounding, and I love the presets. There are a ton adjustable settings to get specific sounds, but it is really easy to dial up a great tone with one of the presets. While it is definitely a little bit expensive, its worth it for me to have a great sounding compressor that I can use over and over again without the hassles of outboard gear.
