Digidesign announced the availability for Pro Tools 6.0.1, a free update for owners of Pro Tools 6.0, as a Web download at [url=http://www.digidesign.com]http://www.digidesign.com[/url] and through local dealers as an Updater CD.
“We recommend that all users of Pro Tools 6.0 update to 6.0.1 to enjoy the best possible performance,” states Wendy Abowd, Digidesign’s Director of Pro Tools Product Line. “Pro Tools 6.0.1 provides several dozen fixes for problems that may have been experienced with Pro Tools 6.0.”
Pro Tools 6.0 software for Mac OS X added a powerful set of new features and improvements for both TDM and LE systems. Now Digidesign has released three products to make Pro Tools systems even more powerful, reliable and flexible:
– Pro Tools 6.0.1 software fixes some key issues with Pro Tools 6.0.
– The new Digidesign Core Audio driver allows customers to use Digidesign hardware for multi-channel audio input and output with third-party applications that support Apple’s Core Audio standard.
– A new Digidesign MIDI I/O driver is available for users of the Digidesign MIDI I/O.
Pro Tools 6.0.1 is a free update for Pro Tools 6.0 owners. Users of Pro Tools 5.x versions with v6.0.1-compatible systems can purchase a Pro Tools 6.0.1 LE upgrade for US$75 or a TDM upgrade for US$195.

Good to see the first DigiDesign Core Audio driver which is supposed to let me capture and play-back audio from applications other than ProTools. Unfortunately not every application is supported and that also includes OS X system sounds. Nevertheless, I hope that one day a version of ProTools will exist that will let me record using hardware other than DigiDesign’s.
