NAMM 2009: Digidesign Announces Two New Pro Tools LE System Bundles
On the heels of the highly-anticipated release of Pro Tools® 8, Digidesign a part of Avid Technology, Inc. is now offering two new Pro Tools LE® system bundles: 003™ Factory Complete and 003 Rack Factory Complete. Both bundles combine a Digidesign 003 hardware interface with the new Complete Production Toolkit - the powerful new expansion option for Pro Tools LE systems that combines a variety of plug-ins for both music and post production applications. The bundles offer up to nearly $500 in savings from standalone purchases.
The Complete Production Toolkit, made available with the release of Pro Tools 8 last month, dramatically expands the creative and production power of Pro Tools LE 8 by adding full 7.1 surround mixing, and support for up to 128 simultaneous audio tracks to any Pro Tools LE 8 based system. This bundle includes Digidesign virtual instruments and professional plug-ins valued at $2,650 including: Eleven™ LE classic guitar amp emulator, Structure® LE advanced sample player, Hybrid™ 1.5 high-definition synthesizer, Smack!™ LE compressor, DINR™ LE noise reduction, TL Space™ Native Edition convolution reverb, X-Form® time compression/expansion and pitch shifter, and Neyrinck SoundCode Stereo surround-to-stereo down mixer.
Additionally, the toolkit unlocks several powerful, professional processing tools in Pro Tools LE, including multi-track Beat Detective™ rhythm analysis and correction tool, DigiBase™ Pro file management, DigiTranslator™ 2.0 for importing/exporting of OMF®, AAF, and MXF files, and much more.
Bundles are available combining the Complete Production Toolkit with the Digidesign 003 Factory or 003 Rack Factory. The 003 Factory is a portable, FireWire-based Pro Tools LE interface that offers extensive audio and MIDI I/O, along with hands-on control of Pro Tools via an integrated control surface. The 003 Rack Factory offers the same audio and MIDI I/O as the 003 Factory in a compact, 2U rack mountable package.
