Pro Tools|24 MIX Systems End of Development

Pro Tools 6.4.1 for Mac OS X 10.3 (Panther) and Windows XP

August 2004

Introduced in September of 1998, Pro Tools|24 MIX systems have provided many years of service for our customers. However, for Digidesign to continue to develop new features and refine existing ones, it is necessary for us to focus development and testing on our currently manufactured systems. Consequently, we regret to have to announce that the Pro Tools 6.4.1 software release will be the last that will include support for Pro Tools|24 MIX systems.

Some of you may wonder how this can be necessary when each system shares the same TDM or LE version of Pro Tools software. While that is true, each of Digidesign's systems requires some specific development and qualification for every Pro Tools release. As we introduce new product offerings, additional options, and new compatibility support, the number of configurations we need to develop for, performance tune, and test expands exponentially: It's simply impossible for us to continue to support all systems indefinitely. Instead, we have to focus our major development efforts on our currently manufactured systems.
