Digidesign have released preliminary information on the multichannel version of Sound Tools - Pro Tools. The basic system will be four channels (expandable to 16) of hard disk recording operating on a Macintosh II system. The system will support unlimited non -linear virtual tracks and other digital audio features such as graphic editing, crossfades, track slipping and tempo mapping. Mixing functions include realtime mixing and snapshot and dynamic automation. DSP functions include multiple band parametric EQ and realtime effects. The MIDI recorder aspects include multitrack linear drop -in/out and loop recording, pattern based editing, tempo mapping to digital audio and event editing/filtering. Other features include continuous SMPTE synchronisation and resolve on all channels; AES/EBU and SPDIF digital I/Os and analogue I/Os, sample rates of 44.1 and 48 kHz, and back -up onto any Mac compatible media, DAT or Exabyte. Expanding the system to 16 channels requires a system accelerator card and four audio cards and audio interfaces. The system accelerator will also allow background loading. The system will still run the external software packages that ran on Sound Tools.
