Digidesign To Support Logic Platinum on Mac OS X

New Emagic tools to support Pro Tools; Digidesign releasing OS X Core Audio hardware support for native Emagic apps By Dave Nagel
Digidesign says it will support Emagic's Logic Platinum on Mac OS X. Digidesign just last week announced the impending release of a Mac OS X version of Pro Tools 6.0. Emagic, which was bought by Apple earlier this year, released an extension for Logic that supports Digidesign's TDM systems under Mac OS 9. Mac OS X support will build upon the software released by Emagic.

Both Digidesign and Emagic say they want their systems to be compatible under mac OS X as soon as possible. "We continue to enjoy a close and productive relationship with Emagic," said Dave Lebolt, Digidesign's general manager, in a prepared statement, "and we will work closely with Emagic in the coming months to ensure the release of Logic support for Pro Tools on OS X as close to the release of Pro Tools 6.0 as possible."


The companies also say they plan to extend their relationship beyond the Logic TDM extension. They say Emagic will continue to release new products for Pro Tools users, including the Epic TDM collection of plugins and Pro Tools-compatible versions of the ES-2 virtual synthesizer, EVP88 vintage keyboard, EVB3 vintage organ and EVD6 vintage clavinet modules.

Digidesign also says that, shortly after the introduction of Pro Tools 6.0, it will release OS X Core Audio drivers that will enable Emagic support of Digidesign I/O hardware in native Emagic applications.
