Digidesign is shipping the Digidesign Music Production Toolkit
software expansion option. With the Music Production Toolkit, users can
take advantage of an impressive collection of plug-ins and enhanced
editing tools, increased track count, and the ability to easily export
mixes as MP3 files.
The Music Production Toolkit includes a full range of professional
music tools that expand the creative power of Pro Tools LE or Pro Tools
The Music Production Toolkit includes a variety of powerful plug-ins
ideal for creating and producing music, including: Hybrid, a versatile
high-definition synthesizer from Digidesign?€™s new Advanced Instrument
Research group; TL Space Native Edition, a flexible convolution reverb;
Smack! LE, a professional compressor/limiter; SoundReplacer, a
time-saving sound replacement tool; and DINR LE, an easy-to-use noise
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
multi-track 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 multi-track 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.
?€œOur Pro Tools LE and M-Powered customers have always dreamt of
having more tracks,?€ relates David Gibbons, Digidesign?€™s Senior
Director of Product Marketing. ?€œWe?€™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 US.
