I use an iMac 3.06 GHz for my Logic Pro midi/audio/video production running in Mac OS 10.6 ( SnowLeopard ). The audio in/out goes thru a Mackie Board and the midi data thru a keyboard USB port. All works good.

Now I am interested in going for some version of ProTools. But as best as i understand it ProTools is somewhat fussy as to how you feed it audio and midi.

Can I use my M-Audio USB audiophile 2496 for audio/in out with ProTools and my keyboards USB midi ports to capture the midi data ?

An additional question:

When I was using a special version of ProTools in Mac OS 8 ProTools in those days was not MIDI savy. I can recall that i had to do an end run to sync midi to the audio recorded with ProTools. Is ProTools midi savy with the new versions ?

You want to find the compatibility documents on the AVid website. They will have specific details about which computer and OS you can have run with which specific ProTools product.
For INstance, My Mbox2 coupled with my computer only goes to ProTools le 7.4, no higher.

I'm pretty much in the box these days, however I'm curious as to how bad the sync is with external MIDI boxes. I'd imagine it's repeatable, if not predictable, so a quick slide after tracking should get you back in time.
