“No matter what Pro Tools system you’re running — from Pro Tools|HD to Pro Tools FREE — making sure you’re equipped with the latest and most powerful Apple computer is of the utmost importance,” Foeckler said. “The most obvious reason why the newest Power Mac G4 is a perfect fit for both Pro Tools TDM and LE systems is the increased processor speeds. The faster the processor, the faster you’re able to keep up with your creativity.”
Pro Tools|HD offers audio professionals an intuitive, integrated production environment. The system features dramatic DSP power, sweeping sample rate support, brand new high-resolution audio interfaces and peripheral options, abundant track count and I/O capacity, extensive routing flexibility and more.
Giving examples of why it is “more important than ever to be using the latest Power Mac G4,” Foeckler talks about the Macs PCI slots, the ability to add 1.5GB of RAM, the Power Mac’s SuperDrive and the ability for Power Tools users to utilize two Apple Cinema Displays, providing the ultimate in screen real estate for large projects.
Foeckler also touches on Mbox, the new Pro Tools LE-based micro studio from Digidesign and Focusrite. “Just plug the unit into your iBook, iMac, PowerBook G4, or Power Mac G4, launch Pro Tools LE software (included with Mbox), and you’re ready to record using the very same software interface professionals worldwide rely on for their audio production tasks,” Foeckler said.
