ProTools M-Powered 7.4

M-Audio has released Pro Tools M-Powered 7.4, adding a number of new music features and workflow enhancements, including a new music composition and production tool, Elastic Time. Elastic Time allows users to change the tempo and timing of loops, music, and other sound files, without cutting up the tracks. Users can audition or import sounds into a session - including REX and Acid files - and the files will automatically sync to the tempo. Elastic Time can also quantize audio to the session grid or extracted grooves, providing fine-tuning control over every beat. M-Audio is currently selling the Pro Tools M-Powered 7.4 upgrade for $50 from v7.3, and $75 for all other users.

Pro Tools M-Powered also includes Structure Free, Digidesign's sample player, and over 850MB of high-quality instrument samples, recorded by Digidesign Advanced Instrument Research. The software can interface with ReWire applications to allow MIDI input directly from a program such as Reason. The update also introduces support for Unicode-supported languages: Japanese, French, Greek, Russian, and Hebrew.

Pro Tools M-Powered 7.4 also adds support for the M-Audio KeyStudio 49i, adding to a list of nearly two dozen compatible M-Audio hardware products. Leopard compatibility was not clear, but M-Audio confirms that the latest version of the software is optimized for Mac OS X 10.4.9 Tiger.
