Lightbulb Current Macs Now Qualified With Pro Tools 8.0 HD, LE, M-Powered

UPDATED 4/20/2009 - Pro Tools Compatibility with Newly Released Apple Computers

On March 3rd, Apple, Inc. released new versions of the iMac, Mac mini, MacBook Pro, and Mac Pro. We have completed our testing and are pleased to announce that Pro Tools LE and M-Powered 8.0 systems are compatible with these new Apple computers.

In addition to the previously announced Pro Tools HD 8.0 compatibility with the latest Mac Pro "Nehalem Processor" models, the late 2008/early 2009 MacBook Pro models are now qualified with Pro Tools HD 8.0 systems (Magma ExpressBox1 Pro or ExpressBox4 expansion chassis required).

For the most recent information about Digidesign products and updates regarding the qualification of the new iMac, Mac mini, MacBook Pro, and Mac Pro, please check the compatibility pages at the Digidesign web site: www.digidesign.com/compatibility

Current compatibility information:
Not Supported
The late 2008 aluminum "unibody" MacBook models and all MacBook Air models are equipped with USB ports only. Because recording to the internal drive or USB drives is not recommended, these models are not tested or supported. There is no way to connect a FireWire drive (or FireWire audio interface) to these Macs. There are no FireWire ports or ExpressCard slots on these models:
  • MacBook 2.0GHz (MB466LL/A)
  • MacBook 2.4GHz (MB467LL/A)
  • MacBook Air (all models)
