This upgrade is for any LE product except Digi001 and the original Mbox

Pro Tools from Avid takes the already mature and fully featured audio creation software into the realm of the "cloud" with all of its promises. This upgrade comes with a twelve-month upgrade and support plan (renewable) that ensures access to the latest enhancements, and includes future software updates and upgrades (as long as the plan is active), along with 24/7 access to Customer Care to get help whenever it's needed.

Here is a quick overview of some noteworthy features of the program. Since the software is based on a 64-bit architecture, the program is able to access as much RAM as is present on the computer, which in turn allows virtual instruments that contain large sample libraries to be fully loaded for instant playback. Additionally, the number of instruments that can be simultaneously available in a session has also increased. Another major feature is an offline bounce function. Preparing intermediary or final mixes is much faster using a simple command. Sound quality is maintained due to time-stamped automation, and multiple files with different file formats can be created simultaneously.

Record input monitoring features low latency even when routing through plug-ins. Those working with audio for picture will appreciate the ability to play Avid DNxHD files and other HD formats directly within the timeline without transcoding. A wide variety of plug-ins are included with the software, as are six virtual instruments. The software not only works with the company's interfaces, but since version 9, with any Core Audio or ASIO compliant interface.

Some of the upcoming enhancements include collaboration in the cloud with other artists and producers, anywhere in the world. A Marketplace where artists can share, license, or sell music and audio projects, and buy virtual instruments, plug-ins, and more. Access to prior work from anywhere using an audio archival service that stores content and tracks it, regardless of whether a session is stored locally, or in the cloud. Archive a stereo mix, the full session, individual stems, or even flatten all tracks so that the original plug-ins used to create them aren't required.

The introduction of a universal metadata schema into the software will help manage, track, and document every asset and project created. This metadata will enable media creators and distributors to keep track of everyone who creatively contributed to specific content, making it easy to document who did what, manage and control versioning, and provide accurate credit information. Some of these enhancements are implemented, while others and future ones like it will be delivered via the upgrade plan.

Users who wish to extended the upgrade and support components for another twelve months after the initial twelve-month period has expired, need to purchase either the Pro Tools Annual Upgrade Plan, the Pro Tools Annual Plug-in and Support Plan, or both.

II have Pro Tools LE 8.0.4.This version will give you Pro Tools 10, 11 and 12 as well? It is compatible with the MBox 2?
Asked by: Gerald J.
Yes, it will get you at least 10 and 12. 11 you don't need 11 if you're on 12, its very similar architecturally. Mbox 2 is not officially supported, but it's been working for many based on driver installs. here are some directions below. PT 12 will work no problem with your computer audiocard and wont need the Mbox to have PT 12 work. Some Mac computers that have Core2Duo processors will experience problems with the Mbox 2 from Digidesign with the latest driver. To restore functionality, you will need to manually uninstall the Mbox 2 drivers and install version 10.3.3. Follow the instructions below to manually remove the drivers:Manually uninstalling Mbox 2 drivers on Mac: Open Finder and navigate to Macintosh HD > System > Library > Extensions and move the following items to the trash: digiDal.kext digiIO.kext DigidesignMbox2.kext DigidesignMbox2Boot.kext Next, go back to Macintosh HD and open the Library folder. Navigate to Audio > Plug-Ins > HAL and move the following item to the trash: DigidesignCoreAudio.plugin Go back to the Audio folder and navigate to the MIDI Drivers folder, then remove the following item: DigidesignMbox2MIDI.plugin Go back to the Library folder, then navigate to Startupitems and move the following items to the trash: Digidesign Mbox2 DigidesignLoader Next, go to your User Library. To access this, click on the Finder Go menu at the top of your screen and select Library (for Mac OS X 10.7 Lion and later, you will need to hold the Option key on your keyboard to reveal the Library selection). Once in the User Library folder, go to the Preferences folder and move the following items to the trash: com.digi.ptools.plist DAE Prefs DigiSetup.OSX Pro Tools Prefs Finally, empty your trash and restart your computer. If you cant empty the trash because some of the files are in use, restart your computer first, then empty the trash.Now that youve manually uninstalled the Mbox 2 drivers, download and install version 10.3.3 of the Mbox 2 drivers. You can download them here (download should start automatically).If you continue having issues after that, try zapping the PRAM on your Mac to reset the peripherals.
