M-Audio and Digidesign have announced Pro Tools M-Powered 7. This exciting new version extends support to five M-Audio USB peripherals--Black Box, M-Audio Ozone, MobilePre USB, Fast Track USB, and Transit--while delivering expanded MIDI, audio recording and editing capabilities; greater mixing power and flexibility; enhanced efficiency; and improved ease of use.
Compatibility with select M-Audio USB products brings users a variety of new music production options. For Pro Tools recording on the go, the Transit, MobilePre USB, and Fast Track USB all offer compact size and bus-powered operation. Specialized production hardware like the Black Box now gives guitarists access to the industry standard in music production, in addition to amp modeling, unique beat-synced effects and inspiring drum patterns. Keyboardists and electronic music producers benefit from support of the M-Audio Ozone, which integrates a keyboard, MIDI control surface, audio/MIDI interface, mic/instrument preamp and headphone monitors. These five peripherals join M-Audio's complete line of FireWire audio and Delta PCI interfaces, which are already compatible with Pro Tools M-Powered software.
Pro Tools 7 software is a cross-platform release, supporting Windows XP and Mac OS X computers. Current registered Pro Tools M-Powered software customers are eligible for a free update to Pro Tools M-Powered 7 software, which will run with their existing Pro Tools M-Powered 6.8 software iLok authorizations. M-Audio currently anticipates that Pro Tools M-Powered 7 software will be available on October 28, 2005.
Pro Tools M-Powered software requires a supported M-Audio hardware peripheral to function. Please visit www.digidesign.com or www.m-audio.com for a current list of compatible M-Audio hardware peripherals, current system requirements, compatibility information, and online support.
