Digidesign is now announced last year. Version 6.0 of the software brings Mac OS X compatibility, new file management functions, enhanced MIDI functionality, TDM and RTAS plug-in instancing on-the-fly (TDM version only), new plugins, import Session Data options (TDM only), and more features in the LE version. List price for the Pro Tools 6.0 software upgrade is $200 from any previous TDM version and $75 from any previous LE version. The page however notes some limited functionality, until follow-up software updates are offered in mid-2003.
Digidesign's Pro Tools TDM 6.0 software supports Pro Tools|HD, Pro Tools|24 MIX, and Pro Tools|24 systems, but does not include support for for AVoption|XL and Avid Unity MediaNetwork--which will be added in another release currently scheduled for mid-2003. Pro Tools LE 6.0 software supports Digi 001, Mbox and Digi ToolBox, while Mac OS X support for Digi 002 will be included in a follow-up software release, currently scheduled for mid-2003. Additionally, neither version of the software supports DigiStudio.
