Digidesign's Pro Tools 6.1 software is now shipping and adds these new features:

Along with a new look for the Mix, Edit and Transport windows, Pro Tools 6.1 software brings to XP the DigiBase file-management utility, enhanced MIDI functionality (including high-resolution groove templates), additional Beat Detective features, new import session options, plug-in functionality enhancements, MachineControl option additions, a host of new enhancements to Pro Tools LE and much more.

Pro Tools 6.1 adds AVoption|XL support for record and playback of all Avid JFIF video resolutions from 35:1 up to 1:1 uncompressed on Windows XP- and Mac OS X-based Pro Tools|HD systems and Mac OS X-based Pro Tools|24 MIX systems. Users can exchange video projects with Avid workstations via Advanced Authoring Format (AAF). In addition, OMF video metadata is now displayed within the DigiBase browsers. The new DV Toolkit ($795) for Pro Tools is an optional cross-platform bundle that adds desktop post-production functionality to a user's Pro Tools LE system. Features include time code for Pro Tools LE, DigiTranslator 2.0 option for full AAF/OMF import/export, Digidesign's AudioSuite DINR noise reduction plug-in and Synchro Arts VocALign Project for dialog replacement.
