Digidesign has launched DiSK (Digidesign Sound Knowledge), a new free destination at www.digidesign.com for people who want to learn more about using Pro Tools.

"We experienced huge success when we launched our online magazine, DigiZine, last year," said Paul Foeckler, Digidesign's director of corporate marketing. "Existing users couldn't get enough Pro Tools tips and tricks and new Pro Tools users expressed a need for a place to get their feet wet before taking in-depth instructional courses from an authorized training facility. This year, we decided to launch DiSK to address these needs. It will show people how to use Pro Tools; whether you have Pro Tools Free, Pro Tools|LE or a Pro Tools|HD system, you can go to DiSK, download some loops, watch a few DiSK Flix and start making music in no time."

DiSK is divided into the five sections:
DiSK Jockey is where users can download thousands of free and for-purchase sounds, including professional sample libraries from Sonomic and sound effects from The Hollywood Edge library.

DiSK Flix offers short, online Pro Tools instructional videos that teach beginner, intermediate and advanced features of Pro Tools software.

DiSKotech has free downloadable Pro Tools templates and files, an excerpt from David Franz's book Producing in the Home Studio With Pro Tools for tips on how to set up a home studio and tips about third-party plug-ins and software applications provided by Digidesign's development partners.

DiSKussion showcases a panel of diverse artists, engineers and producers who provide answers to a different question each month about how they use Pro Tools in their music production. Panelists include Grand Mixer DXT, John Feldmann, Tal Herzberg, Brad Wood and Dave Aude.

DiSK Trivia is a section of fun music-trivia questions.
