Digidesign Updates Pro Tools 6

New release adds support for Apple Core Audio By Dave Nagel
Digidesign has released an update for Pro Tools 6. The new release, version 6.0.1, fixes a number of issues that have come up since the release of version 6.0. Digidesign has also made available a new support package for Apple Core Audio and a new MIDI I/O driver. The Pro Tools update and Apple Core Audio package are available now for Mac OS X. The new MIDI I/O driver is available for both Mac OS 9 and Mac OS X.

Pro Tools 6.0.1 fixes some issues--several dozen, according to the company--that were reported since the release of version 6.0. It also offers a new Digidesign Core Audio driver, which allows for the use of Digidesign hardware for multi-channel audio input and output with third-party applications that support Apple’s Core Audio standard.

The Digidesign MIDI I/O Driver update resolves a firmware problem and also provides improved general performance. Digidesign advises that this update should be used by all Digidesign MIDI I/O owners, whether they are using OS 9 or OS X.

Both updates are available now for free for current customers. Pro Tools 6.0.1 supports Mac OS X versions 10.2.3 and 10.2.4 only and works on Pro Tools|HD, Pro Tools|24 MIX, Pro Tools|24, Mbox, Digi 001 and Digi ToolBox (Audiomedia III). Digi 002 will be supported in an upcoming Pro Tools release expected in the second quarter. For more information, visit
