Daly City, CA (April 14, 2006)–Digidesign is bringing back its popular ExchangePack plug-in offer one last time, allowing customers to exchange legacy Pro Tools hardware for Pro Tools|HD systems at the lowest prices ever, while getting up to $14,600 in free plug-ins. This special offer is available through May 22 and will not be extended. Digidesign is also announcing an exchange program for ProControl owners interested in moving up to an ICON D-Control worksurface. Customers can take advantage of up to $19,000 in trade-in value if they act before June 16.
When customers exchange their Digidesign Pro Tools|24 MIX system or another legacy Pro Tools system up to a Pro Tools|HD 2 Accel or Pro Tools|HD 3 Accel system before May 22, they will receive the lowest exchange prices and be able to select additional ExchangePack plug-ins valued at up to $14,600-for free. Pro Tools customers who didn’t have the opportunity to take advantage of the ExchangePack plug-in promotion before it ended in March now have one last chance.
Customers who exchange up to Pro Tools|HD 3 Accel can choose up to 10 ExchangePack plug-ins from a large selection; those who make the switch to Pro Tools|HD 2 Accel can pick up to 5 ExchangePack plug-ins. In addition to the ExchangePack plug-ins, customers are also entitled to Pro Tools HD 7 software, HDpack plug-ins, and Pro Tools Ignition Pack collection of creative tools, all of which are included with every new Pro Tools|HD system. This collection of plug-ins, valued at $14,600, is available when customers exchange up to a Pro Tools|HD 3 Accel system.
According to Digidesing, hardware exchange prices have never been lower, and they will increase on May 23. Customers who exchange their systems now can still save $2,500 by exchanging up to a Pro Tools|HD 2 Accel or Pro Tools|HD 3 Accel system for PCI or PCIe. They can save $2,000 by exchanging up to Pro Tools|HD 1. This offer will not be extended.

To participate in the exchange, customers can contact a local authorized Digidesign dealer or Digidesign Telesales at 888.636.3444.

Digidesign also emphasizes that trade-in values for ProControl and its expansion options have never been higher. Again, customers who act before June 16 will get up to $19,000 in trade-in value for their ProControl setup when they exchange it for an ICON D-Control configuration. Several D-Control exchange options now include a Surround Panner, providing an easy way to integrate hands-on control of surround panning or manipulation of plug-in parameters from the joysticks or touch screen.
