Digidesign Updates Pro Tools TDM and LE

Version 6.2.2 gains Panther and G5 optimizations By Dave Nagel
Digidesign has released an update for Pro Tools. The new 6.2.2 version for both TDM and LE systems gains enhancements for Panther and Apple G5 systems. It's available now for Mac OS X.

According to Digidesign, the new Pro Tools software in the Phase II rollout provides support for Mac OS X 10.3.1 and Apple G5 systems for Digi 002, Digi 002 Rack and Mbox, as well as certain Pro Tools|HD, HD Accel, and LE configurations. Pro Tools TDM 6.2.2 adds Mac OS X 10.3.1 support with Power Mac G5 to Pro Tools|HD and Pro Tools|HD Accel systems (with limited voice/track support) and includes limited compatibility of AVoption|XL with Pro Tools|HD and Pro Tools|HD Accel for the dual 2 GHz G5 model running Mac OS X 10.3.1. The voice/track issue currently limits HD and HD Accel systems to 100 tracks at 48 kHz, 70 tracks at 96 kHz or 24 tracks at 192 kHz. SCSI storage is not yet supported, except with the AVoption|XL. Improvements to track/voice counts and full SCSI support are expected in the Phase III rollout either late this year or early next.

Pro Tools LE 6.2.2 adds support for G5s with Mac OS X 10.3.1 to Digi 002, Digi 002 Rack and Mbox. Other new compatibility includes Mac OS X 10.3.1 with Digi 002, Digi 002 Rack and Mbox when using currently shipping PowerBooks, iBooks, iMacs and shipping Power Mac G4s, according to Digidesign.

Both updaters are available now free of charge for Pro Tools 6 users. A Web-based updater will be available in December. For more information, visit
