Digidesign is pleased to ship Digidesign® Pro Tools LE 7.1.1 and Pro Tools M-Powered? 7.1.1 software, offering compatibility with Apple's new Intel-based iMac, MacBook Pro, and Mac Mini computers. These new versions of Pro Tools® software enable customers to combine the improved processing power of Intel-based Mac computers with the creative power of Pro Tools.

"We're thrilled to give Pro Tools LE and Pro Tools M-Powered customers the ability to harness the increased processing power of Apple's new Intel-based Macs," commented Digidesign general manager Dave Lebolt. "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."

Along with Pro Tools LE and Pro Tools M-Powered 7.1.1 software, Digidesign has also released Intel Mac-compatible versions of all Digidesign and Digidesign-distributed RTAS® and AudioSuite plug-ins, plus all software options—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 is 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.

Digidesign will continue to support Pro Tools LE and Pro Tools M-Powered software on the PowerPC platform.
