Avid Compatibility with Mac OS X Lion (10.7), Info for ProTools and MediaComposer

July 24, 2011 Leave a comment

Product Compatibility: New Mac OS X Lion (v10.7) Under Evaluation with Media Composer and Symphony
The new Mac OS X Lion (v10.7) was released by Apple on July 20th as a download from the Mac App Store.  This new OS X Lion (10.7) is currently under evaluation with both Media Composer and Symphony.  Qualification for this operating system is a top priority and supported configurations will be announced at a future date.

Product Compatibility: Mac OS X Lion (10.7) Under Evaluation for Use with Pro Tools Avid is excited to see that Apple’s new Mac OS X Lion (10.7) operating system is now available for download from the Mac App Store. However, please note that at this time, Pro Tools 9—including Pro Tools HD 9 and Pro Tools MP 9—and all earlier versions of the software are not compatible with Mac OS X Lion. Our top priority is to provide you with a fully compatible version as soon as possible. We’re currently working with Apple and will notify you as soon as we have something ready. That said, Pro Tools SE software, which is bundled with select M-Audio products, is fully qualified for Mac OS X Lion once you download and install a patch. To do this, open Pro Tools SE on any Mac running Mac OS X Lion and run the auto-updater, which will locate the update for download and installation (it’s less than a megabyte). The patch is also available on the M-Audio site at:

Digidesign Announces New Post-centric Products at AES

October 14, 2008 Leave a comment

For those of us who truly love technology, trade shows are where we get to “peek behind the curtain” to get a preview of upcoming attractions. This years AES at Moscone Center in San Francisco was no exception to the rule. DAW market leaders Digidesign debuted a number of powerful new products, listed below (not necessarily in order of importance).

  • Pro Tools 8 may be the most ambitious release to date, with so many enhancements it would be impossible to list them all in this post. While the bulk of the new features clearly target musicians, there were still enough new “post-centric” products to merit a four star review. Pro Tools 8 HD and LE upgrades are available for pre-order at Key Code Media. Contact the Audio Department for more information.
  • Video Satellite support for Avid Mojo DX. Up till now Video Satellite has provided a “solution” to HD playback for PT users within Avid Shared Storage Workflows with only partial satisfaction. Users have been forced to view SD video, provided by a real-time-down-res and outputted by an “old style” Mojo. Thankfully, those days are almost gone! With PT8, Video Satellite, and a Mojo DX, audio post professionals can watch the same quality video that our “video brethren” have been enjoying for since Avid began shipping their new hardware!
  • Video Satellite LE (two versions). Though not actually shown on the trade show floor, Digidesign representatives gave us preliminary information on two new, lower cost versions of Video Satellite. Reputed to utilize two different models of Black Magic Designs PCIE cards, Intensity and HD Extreme. These should “fill in the gap” for those of us who don’t need the capabilities of the above mentioned, Mojo DX version, and/or are not getting our video from Avids, and/or are not on Avid Shared Storage. The specifics (meaning CPU and OS requirements) were not announced at the show, though we’ve since learned that depending on required video resolutions – these may be able to share the CPU with the PTHD cards!
  • 003 Rack+. Packing 8 mic pre’s (four more than the 003 Rack), and a wide variety of I/O, 003 Rack+ helps bridge the gap between LE and HD systems… and yes, it IS available in the popular “Factory” version – packing in loads of extra plug-ins and software goodies!
  • Complete Production Toolkit. Just when you thought that LEsystems couldn’t get any more powerful, along comes CPT! Beginning with expanding track count from 48 to an incredible 128, CPT also provides surround mixing (up to 7.1), Integrated video andSMPTE in the timeline, and even an arsenal of virtual instruments.
  • Satellite Link, a new software option that allows users tocontrol up to 5 separate Pro Tools systems from a single transport, all with near-sample accurate sync. Multi-master transport, andsolo link allow the entire system to function as one.
  • D Command Producer’s Desk. Not just providing a place forthe computer monitor, D Command Producer’s Desk gives usersan integrated keyboard and mouse. It’s available in both ES and “Baby Blue” versions. Finally D-Command users can have allediting and mixing functions on the same level
