Daly City, CA (March 22, 2006)–Digidesign is now shipping its Music Production Toolkit software expansion option for Pro Tools LE and M-Powered systems. With the Music Production Toolkit, users can take advantage of an extensive collection of plug-ins and enhanced editing tools, increased track count, and the ability to easily export mixes as MP3 files.
Whether you use Pro Tools for composing, editing, mixing, remixing, or all of the above, the Music Production Toolkit includes a full range of professional music tools that expand the creative power of your Pro Tools LE or Pro Tools M-Powered system.
The Music Production Toolkit includes a host of plug-ins designed to aid in creating and producing music, including: Hybrid, a versatile synthesizer from Digidesign’s new Advanced Instrument Research group; TL Space Native Edition, a convolution reverb; Smack! LE, a compressor/limiter; SoundReplacer, a sound replacement tool; and DINR LE, a noise reduction plug-in.
With the Music Production Toolkit, users can also expand their Pro Tools sessions up to 48 mono or stereo tracks at up to 96 kHz for more complex mixes. In addition, the Music Production Toolkit features a multitrack version of Beat Detective, which allows users to perform automatic groove analysis and correction across multiple audio and MIDI tracks at the same time. This multitrack capability was previously available only with Pro Tools HD software. The Toolkit also provides the Pro Tools MP3 Option for exporting mixes as MP3 files. The Music Production Toolkit requires Pro Tools 7 software (sold separately) and includes an update to Pro Tools 7.1.
“Our Pro Tools LE and M-Powered customers have always dreamt of having more tracks,” related David Gibbons, Digidesign’s senior director of product marketing. “We’re thrilled to offer 48-track capability and $2,000 worth of additional plug-ins and software for just a fraction of the price. Now, more than ever, Pro Tools LE and M-Powered are a compelling choice for total music production on both Mac and PC.”
The MSRP of the Music Production Toolkit is $495.
