Digidesign to Announce Pro Tools 6.0 for Mac OS X at AES

Support for dual-processor G4s included By Frank Moldstad
Digidesign will be shipping Pro Tools 6.0 for Mac OS X by the end of the year, and will be making the official announcement at AES on Sunday.

According to published reports confirmed by Digidesign for this article, Pro Tools 6.0 will have a completely new look and will include support for dual-processor Mac G4 computers. One of the major improvements in Pro Tools 6.0 will be in its MIDI capabilities, thanks to the Mac OS X CoreMIDI engine.

These include:

  • MIDI Time Stamping (MTS) for sample-accurate MIDI timing with software samplers and synths, including TDM, RTAS, HTDM and DirectConnect formats

  • Sub-millisecond-accurate MIDI timing with MIDI I/O and other supported MTS-capable interfaces

  • Pro Tools 6.0 will also have intelligent tools for groove creation and modification, including Beat Detective 2.0 for extraction and generation of DigiGroove templates based on audio performances for timing and velocity. The DigiGroove templates will be compatible with the new Groove Injection templates.

    Digidesign is also announcing Pro Tools TDM 5.3.3 for Windows XP, which includes many of the features that were previously included in Pro Tool s 5.3.1 for the Macintosh. Among the features are integrated control of PRE, multi-DSP 48-bit mixer and increased SYNC I/O options.

    The announcements are being made at Digidesign's booth on Sunday morning during the 113th AES Convention at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
