Digidesign To Show ICON, Venue and More at AES 2004

To show several new hardware and software products (October 15, 2004)

Digidesign is excited to participate once again as an exhibitor at the AES Convention (Booth #712). Digidesign will show several new hardware and software products, with special emphasis on the Digidesign ICON integrated studio console environment and new VENUE live sound reinforcement mixing and processing environment. As a compliment to AES and celebration of its 20th Anniversary, Digidesign will host DigiWorld, a free educational event on Saturday, October 30, 2004, at its headquarters in Daly City, California. DigiWorld will provide AES attendees and the general public a hands-on experience with Digidesign, M-Audio, and third-party developers.

ICON Integrated Console with D-Control
Digidesign ICON is the first truly integrated console solution of its kind and features the new D-Control tactile work surface, Pro Tools|HD Accel as its core DSP engine, and modular Pro Tools|HD audio interfaces for analog and digital I/O. The ICON redefines audio production possibilities by enabling operators to accomplish every aspect of a project ? mixing, recording, editing, and processing, complete with integrated video and delivery ? within a single, fully integrated environment. Unlike typical digital consoles, ICON is a completely custom-configurable audio production environment. Options include expandable analog and digital I/O, integrated remote mic preamps, industry-leading Digidesign Development Partners effects processing plug-ins and software options, seamless Avid picture support, and comprehensive synchronization and machine control options.

VENUE Live Sound System with D-Show
Digidesign VENUE is an innovative, state-of-the-art live sound reinforcement mixing and processing environment offering the quality and functionality of high-end live sound mixing systems at a far more affordable price. Purpose-built from the ground up, VENUE delivers studio-grade sound quality, maximum reliability, and unprecedented flexibility. VENUE consists of the D-Show mixing console, FOH mix engine, a Stage Rack I/O unit with recallable, remote-controlled preamps and a multi-channel digital snake. The system is highly expandable, allowing up to 96 mic inputs to be mixed to 27 busses. The powerful mix engine provides EQ and Dynamics processing on every input channel, along with 24 assignable graphic EQs and full support for Pro Tools plug-ins. VENUE also features an integrated recording and playback option for industry-standard Digidesign Pro Tools systems.

DigiDelivery LT (MSRP $3,295 US) & DigiDelivery GT (MSRP $9,995 US)
The DigiDelivery file exchange system is the new standard in secure global file transfers. Users can exchange any kind of digital file of virtually any size with anyone in the world. DigiDelivery is faster, more secure, and more reliable than FTP or overnight deliveries, and easily installs on your existing network, cable modem, or DSL modem. Simply drag and drop files to send a delivery, or click a link in an email to receive a delivery ? no need for recipients to enter IP addresses, usernames, or passwords. Military-grade encryption guarantees the security of files. The Setup Wizard and web-based administration mean DigiDelivery is easy enough for anyone to install and use. DigiDelivery saves time and money by eliminating customization costs, service fees, and missed deliveries, while automated reporting makes billing customers a breeze.

Pro Tools TDM 6.6 Software
Pro Tools TDM 6.6 software brings professional quality video playback via Avid Mojo to Pro Tools|HD on Mac OS X, providing a uniquely integrated post-production solution with Avid video. With Avid Mojo and the DigiTranslator option (both purchased separately), Pro Tools TDM 6.6 can open OMF/AAF sequences created with Xpress Pro or Avid Media Composer, play back video via an external monitor, tab from cut to cut in the Pro Tools video track, and export finished audio for re-integration into the original Avid sequence.

Pro Tools 6.7 Software
Whether working with MIDI, audio only, or both, Pro Tools 6.7 offers powerful and flexible features that will benefit anyone who is doing music creation work in Pro Tools. The audio and MIDI feature set in Pro Tools 6.7 has been greatly expanded to deliver tempo-dependent audio and automation, improved drawing and management of tempo curves and meter changes, MIDI step input, enhanced support for instrument plug-ins, MIDI Detective and Beat Detective for Pro Tools LE. Pro Tools 6.7 also brings true cross-platform parity for easy session transfer with major functionality enhancements to Windows.
