Live from New York, Digidesign today announced several revolutionary new products at this year’s 123rd AES Convention. Pro Tools® 7.4 software features new Elastic Time and support for Avid® video playback with Pro Tools LE®. The sleek and stylish new C|24™ provides hands-on control of Pro Tools in a low-profile package. For Pro Tools|HD® users, Digidesign unveiles a new option to the ICON D-Control™ product line—the new ICON D-Control™ ES with a dramatic darker look. The new Digidesign® Virtual Instrument Box Set offers customers all five of the current Digidesign virtual instruments for one low price. And new Media Station|PT™ 2.7 with the Video Satellite Option integrates Pro Tools systems directly into the Avid® video workflow.
Pro Tools 7.4 Software
Get ready for a revolutionary new way to work with Pro Tools®. Digidesign® Pro Tools 7.4 software, featuring the time-manipulating power of Elastic Time, makes working with tempo- and time-based sessions a whole lot easier and imaginative. Plus, increased support for Avid® video and shared storage solutions streamline the workflow between audio and video editors. Pro Tools 7.4 software will be available soon for all Pro Tools platforms.
Sleek and stylish, the new 24-channel Digidesign C|24™ control surface gives you full hands-on control of Pro Tools® recording and mixing as well as a complete array of high-quality analog inputs, plus a 5.1 analog monitor section to wrap around your Pro Tools I/O. C|24 incorporates the latest advancements in Pro Tools software, making it an incredibly powerful — and affordable — console option for Pro Tools users. C|24 will be available soon.
ICON D-Control ES
Take your Pro Tools|HD recording to the dark side. While it’s taken on a decidedly darker appearance, the new ICON D-Control™ ES worksurface offers the same premium sound quality, highly efficient workflows, and unrivaled Pro Tools|HD integration as the original, award-winning D-Control™. It also features updated graphics for better visibility in low light, and an improved switch color layout for easier visual navigation. D-Control ES will be available soon.
Digidesign Virtual Instruments
Digidesign made two announcements for its Advanced Instrument Research (A.I.R.) group product line. The Digidesign Virtual Instrument Box Set offers a powerful collection of the current five groundbreaking A.I.R. virtual instruments for one low price. If you’re a Structure™, Structure™ LE, or Structure™ Free user, EastWest Symphonic Orchestra Gold Complete — Structure™ Edition provides a full orchestral ensemble at your beck and call. Both of these products are available today.
Media Station|PT 2.7 and Video Satellite Option
Integrate your Pro Tools editing prowess into the full Avid video workflow with the utmost efficiency. Media Station|PT™ 2.7 with the Video Satellite Option lets you play back any Avid video sequence in perfect sync with Pro Tools installed on a separate system, eliminating time-consuming video exports and preserving full audio processing in Pro Tools. Media Station|PT 2.7 also provides full support for Avid Unity™ shared storage systems and Avid Interplay™, and even serves as a standalone video capture, export, and layback system.
