Digidesign Pro Tools 7.4.2 graphic

Digidesign, a part of Avid Technology Inc., announces Pro Tools Version 7.4.2 software, which provides Mac OS X 10.5.3 (Leopard) compatibility for Pro Tools HD, Pro Tools LE and Pro Tools M-Powered users. All registered Pro Tools 7.4 users may download the free Pro Tools 7.4.2 software update from the Digidesign Website. Purchasers of new Pro Tools systems or software will receive the free update to Pro Tools 7.4.2 upon registration.

Current Pro Tools users who have not yet upgraded to Pro Tools 7.4 software can purchase a 7.4.2 upgrade from the DigiStore (HD, LE and M-Powered) or an authorized Digidesign dealer (HD only). Customers who recently purchased but have not yet registered a Pro Tools system packaged with Pro Tools 7.4 or 7.3 software are eligible to receive a free update/upgrade to Pro Tools 7.4.2 upon registration.

Some currently-shipping plug-ins and virtual instruments are not yet compatible with Pro Tools 7.4.2 software running on Mac OS X 10.5.3, and some require that users update their plug-ins if an update is available. Before installing the Pro Tools HD 7.4.2 update, users should review the Pro Tools Plug-in Compatibility with Leopard page, which Digidesign updates regularly with the latest information.

“Since the release of Mac OS X Leopard, we have been working closely with Apple to ensure that a Leopard-compatible version of Pro Tools delivers the same level of performance and reliability that our customers have come to depend on,” commented Dave Lebolt, Avid vice president and general manager of Digidesign. “With the release of Mac OS X 10.5.3 just a few weeks ago, we were able to enter the final stages of performance testing and quality assurance before making qualified versions of Pro Tools available to our customers. We’re pleased to finally be able to offer all of our customers—HD, LE and M-Powered alike—a fully qualified version of Pro Tools software that will allow them to take advantage of Apple’s latest operating system."
