By PSW Staff • January 15, 2009 More options for Pro Tools LE systems On the heels of the release of Pro Tools 8, Digidesign 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. The 003 Factory Complete and 003 Rack Factory Complete are ideal for advanced home and project studio owners looking for a powerful Pro Tools LE system, as well as professionals looking for a second system for home or portable use. Both will be available for purchase in Q1 2009 from authorized Digidesign dealers for $3,995 and $2,995 respectively. The Complete Production Toolkit software option for Pro Tools LE systems can also be purchased stand alone for $1,995 US from www.digidesign.com or authorized Digidesign dealers.
