Pro Tools Officially Works With Leopard


Following the pre-release earlier this month, Digidesign has now announced the official availability of Pro Tools 7.4.2 software, which provides Mac OS X 10.5.3 (Leopard) compatibility for Pro Tools|HD, Pro Tools LE, and Pro Tools M-Powered users.
Dave Lebolt, Avid vice president and general manager of Digidesign, told us, “Since the release of Mac OS X Leopard, we have been working closely with Apple to ensure that a Leopard-compatible version of Pro Tools delivers the same level of performance and reliability that our customers have come to depend on. With the release of Mac OS X 10.5.3 just a few weeks ago, we were able to enter the final stages of performance testing and quality assurance before making qualified versions of Pro Tools available to our customers. We’re pleased to finally be able to offer all of our customers—HD, LE, and M-Powered alike—a fully qualified version of Pro Tools software that will allow them to take advantage of Apple’s latest operating system.
Digidesign is fortunate to have one of the largest and most dedicated user communities in professional audio. From hobbyists to high-end pros, Pro Tools users rely on our products every day to attain a level of performance and stability that allows them to create award-winning work — it’s often the primary toolset that they depend on to earn their living. That’s why we’re extremely committed to ensuring that any Pro Tools release is fully-tested and ultimately reliable before it’s introduced to our users.�
