Digidesign Releases Pro Tools for Leopard

PRESS RELEASE


June 2008

Digidesign, a part of Avid Technology, Inc., announced the immediate availability of Pro Tools® 7.4.2 software, which provides Mac OS X 10.5.3 (Leopard) compatibility for Pro Tools|HD®, Pro Tools LE®, and Pro Tools M-Powered™ users.

“Since the release of Mac OS X Leopard, we have been working closely with Apple to ensure that a Leopard-compatible version of Pro Tools delivers the same level of performance and reliability that our customers have come to depend on,” commented Dave Lebolt, Avid vice president and general manager of Digidesign. “With the release of Mac OS X 10.5.3 just a few weeks ago, we were able to enter the final stages of performance testing and quality assurance before making qualified versions of Pro Tools available to our customers. We’re pleased to finally be able to offer all of our customers—HD, LE, and M-Powered alike—a fully qualified version of Pro Tools software that will allow them to take advantage of Apple’s latest operating system.”

Lebolt continues, “Digidesign is fortunate to have one of the largest and most dedicated user communities in professional audio. From hobbyists to high-end pros, Pro Tools users rely on our products every day to attain a level of performance and stability that allows them to create award-winning work — it’s often the primary toolset that they depend on to earn their living. That’s why we’re extremely committed to ensuring that any Pro Tools release is fully-tested and ultimately reliable before it’s introduced to our users.”

Availability

All registered Pro Tools 7.4 users may download the free Pro Tools 7.4.2 software update from the Digidesign website . Purchasers of new Pro Tools systems or software will receive the free update to Pro Tools 7.4.2 upon registration.

Current Pro Tools users who have not yet upgraded to Pro Tools 7.4 software can purchase a 7.4.2 upgrade from the DigiStore (HD, LE, and M-Powered) or an authorized Digidesign dealer (HD only).

Plug-in Compatibility

Some currently shipping plug-ins and virtual instruments are not yet compatible with Pro Tools 7.4.2 software running on Mac OS X 10.5.3, and some require that users update their plug-ins if an update is available. Before installing the Pro Tools HD 7.4.2 update, users should review the Pro Tools Plug-in Compatibility with Leopard page , which is updated regularly with the latest information.
