Daly City, CA (October 29, 2007)–Digidesign has released the latest version of its Pro Tools software. Pro Tools 7.4 offers numerous new music and post-production features and workflow enhancements for Pro Tools|HD, Pro Tools LE and Pro Tools M-Powered users.
Topping the list is a new music composition and production tool called Elastic Time. The software also provides improved networking compatibility with Avid Unity ISIS shared storage systems and new support for HD video workflows.
“With Pro Tools 7.4, we’re delivering some powerful new tools for both music and post production,” says Gannon Kashiwa, market manager for Digidesign’s professional products. “Our new Elastic Time functionality provides a revolutionary new way to manipulate the timing of audio events in Pro Tools, all in real time while maintaining the class-leading sound quality that our users have come to expect. Elastic Time is as easy to use as it is deep and flexible. It goes way beyond simple loop and tempo conforming, and delivers extremely powerful time-based tools that sound absolutely fantastic.”
Kashiwa continues, “Pro Tools integration with Avid-based post-production workflows is truly coming of age with Pro Tools 7.4. With support for Avid Mojo SDI on Pro Tools LE systems, independent engineers and commercial facilities now have access to affordable, professional solutions for desktop post production that seamlessly integrate industry-standard Avid video. And for facilities relying on Avid-based workflows, Pro Tools HD 7.4 takes interoperability to the next level with direct media streaming to and from Avid Unity ISIS shared storage networks on Windows XP-based systems. Finally, the new Avid Media Station|PT software with Video Satellite Option completes the picture with exciting new ways to work with Avid video.”
