I have been running the studio on the Power-based professional line. And I thought that Digidesign might be slow in moving Pro Tools | HD to the new Intel-based Macs. Nope. From the Digidesign website:
Digidesign is expecting to release an Intel-based Mac-compatible update to its acclaimed Pro Tools HD 7.2 software in September 2006. This free update for all owners of Pro Tools HD 7.2 software will allow ICON and Pro Tools|HD users to build their Digidesign system around the new Mac Pro. Within a similar timeframe, the company expects to release compatible versions of its range of Digidesign and Digidesign-distributed TDM plug-ins, while working very closely with third-party manufacturers to help them port their plug-ins and compatible applications to the Intel Mac platform.
I am not in a hurry to upgrade the dual processor G5 in the studio. It has been an awesome computer for audio work.
The other item of interest at the Apple WWDC was a notice asking attendees to not communicate to the world about the conference proceedings, including your blogs.
The power of blogging.
