Digidesign general manager Dave Lebolt told us, â€œWeâ€™re thrilled to give Pro Tools LE and Pro Tools M-Powered customers the ability to harness the increased processing power of Appleâ€™s new Intel-based Macs. Digidesign is committed to supporting the Mac platform, and this new software release gives our customers even more options when building a Pro Tools system for the studio or mobile use.â€�
Along with Pro Tools LE and Pro Tools M-Powered 7.1.1 software, Digidesign has also released Intel Macâ€“compatible versions of all Digidesign and Digidesign-distributed RTAS and AudioSuite plug-ins, plus all software optionsâ€”including the new Music Production Toolkit for Pro Tools LE and Pro Tools M-Powered systems, as well as the DigiTranslator 2.0 and DV Toolkit 2 options for Pro Tools LE. Digidesign tell us they are working closely with third-party manufacturers to help them port their plug-ins to the Intel-based Mac platform.
Pro Tools LE and Pro Tools M-Powered 7.1.1 are separate software downloads, available free to all current, registered users of Pro Tools LE 7 software (version 7.0 or higher) and any version of Pro Tools M-Powered software.
Pro Tools LE users running software version 6.9 or earlier must purchase a Pro Tools 7 software upgrade in order to run their software on Intel-based Macs.
