Pro Tools 8

Rico Love: I like Pro Tools 8, minus all the glitches. All I need is Pro Tools and a great engineer when I'm working. A good Pro Tools rig is one of the things I can't live without. My guys track off of Logic. I do a lot of live stuff, too. The great thing about Pro Tools is that I can just play right into Pro Tools. Play the live guitar, the live bass, hook up a drum set, you know? Put all that stuff right into Pro Tools.

How many people are in the studio with you when you're working?

Rico Love: Three guys. I have an engineer and I have two musicians.

Are they the same guys every time?

Rico Love: I have four producers signed to my company. One of them is actually my engineer. So it's the same four people that rotate every time.
