Shipping soon, Pro Tools 7 software represents a leap in the creative power of Digidesign's digital audio workstation software. Pro Tools 7 software introduces a comprehensive set of new features and enhancements that delivers significantly expanded MIDI and audio recording and editing capabilities, greater mixing power and flexibility, enhanced efficiency, and improved ease of use.

Pro Tools 7 software delivers a whole new set of tools to advance the art of professional audio production and make it easier for those new to Pro Tools to use. The new software will be available for Pro Tools|HD, Pro Tools LE, and Pro Tools M-Powered systems. Nearly all of the new features and enhancements are included in all versions of Pro Tools 7 software (i.e. Pro Tools HD 7, Pro Tools LE 7, and Pro Tools M-Powered 7 software). Pro Tools 7 software is also a cross-platform release, supporting Mac OS10.4 ("Tiger") and Windows XP computers.

"Pro Tools 7 software is Digidesign's most exciting software release to date," says Dave Lebolt, Digidesign General Manager. "We've added new music creation tools such as Instrument Tracks for simple and straightforward integration of virtual instruments, non-destructive real-time MIDI processing, and the ability to work with industry-standard REX and ACID files. Everyone working in post and music is bound to like the new audio region grouping and looping functionality."

Lebolt continues, "Pro Tools 7 software also includes new optimizations for our host processing engine that boosts RTAS plug-in counts by as much as 150% on multi-processor computers. In many cases, that means we can now run more than twice as many RTAS virtual instruments or signal processing plug-ins as in previous releases on a given CPU. Pro Tools 7 software is power-packed to give our users more flexibility to create completely within the Pro Tools environment."

Anyone who purchased a new Pro Tools|HD, Pro Tools LE, or an upgrade to Pro Tools TDM 6.9.x or Pro Tools LE 6.9x software, from an authorized dealer on or after September 1, 2005, is automatically eligible for a free upgrade to the corresponding version of Pro Tools 7 software (i.e., Pro Tools HD 7 software or Pro Tools LE 7 software respectively). Current Pro Tools M-Powered customers are eligible for a free update to Pro Tools M-Powered 7 software. Complete upgrade information will be available when Pro Tools 7 software ships.
