Mackie Designs Inc. announced today the release of HDR Pro, a hardware and software upgrade package for the Mackie HDR24/96 that provides an in-depth level of file compatibility with any Mac-based Digidesign Pro Tools digital audio workstation (Versions 3.x through 5.x). The HDR Pro package includes a copy of HDR Pro software, as well as an outboard Mackie Media M90 drive bay that can be connected to any Mac-based Pro Tools workstation via an onboard FireWire interface.

The new HDR Pro software lets users export all audio files in a given HDR Project as Sound Designer II (.sd2) files and also creates a Pro Tools EDL (Edit Decision List) file based on edits that used the HDR's graphical user interface. This newly created Pro Tools session can then be exported directly to a Mackie Media M90 (inserted in the HDR) and transferred to a Pro Tools system via the outboard FireWire drive bay. HDR Pro also allows a Pro Tools session to be imported into an HDR Project by using the same transfer method.

"In introducing HDR Pro, we have significantly bolstered the versatility of the HDR24/96 for both new and existing HDR users," commented Keith Olsen, corporate director of global recording market and product development at Mackie Designs. "Now, users can easily move files recorded and edited on the road with the HDR into their Pro Tools workstation and back again without losing crucial session data."

The HDR Pro package is currently shipping and will be available for $399 MSRP at Mackie dealers. Mackie Media M90 drives are sold separately. Check it out online at
