Pro Tools HD 8.1cs2 Release Notes
For Pro Tools|HD Systems on Mac OS X and Windows

October 19, 2010

This update requires previous installation of Pro Tools HD 8.1 software:

* Pro Tools 8.1 Downloads and Details

For the most recent CS updates, see the following page:

* Pro Tools CS Updates

What’s included in Pro Tools HD 8.1cs2?

Pro Tools could crash or an access violation may occur when importing duplicate tracks to the same session. (PTSW-133048)

* One can now successfully import duplicate tracks to a Pro Tools 8.1 session without encountering an error.

Volumes named using multi-byte language characters, such as Katakana, don't mount in DigiBase. (PTSW-58406, PTSW-131482)

* One can now use the full set of language options provided by the OS when naming audio volumes.

Control Surfaces could display "Pro Tools has a Dialog on Screen" when there is no dialog on screen. (PTSW-130634)

* When any progress bar dialog is active, hiding Pro Tools until the progress bar finishes, then un-hiding Pro Tools makes Pro Tools think the progress bar dialog is still active. In this state Pro Tools appeared to be mostly unresponsive.

Pro Tools would not launch on a user account configured for Open Directory access. (PTSW-130444)

* Application failed to launch on OS X systems configured for Network Home Directories (i.e. Open Directory). In 8.1 (and 8.0.4), launching Pro Tools on a user account resulted in an assertion error when loading plug-ins, whereas in 8.0.3, Pro Tools crashed with "Pro Tools has unexpectedly quit" dialog.

Tracks created using "Expand to New Tracks" would not allow audio to play back. (PTSW-125445)

* "Expand to New Tracks" now creates tracks muted, but with full metering functionality and audio playback.

QuickTime playback of DV-PAL codec through Mojo stutters. (PTSW-130719)

* The stuttering of QuickTime playback was especially noticeable when manipulating the Pro Tools GUI during playback or having a video sync offset that wasn't divisible by four.

Access violation occurs when applying a fade out on 1 sample region when the fade overlaps adjacent regions. (PTSW-131127)

* This access violation no longer occurs.

On Windows, the Alt and Win keys get "stuck" on. (PTSW-124654)

* The Alt and Win keys can get into a state in which they appear to be pressed down all the time, with the only known solution to quit Pro Tools. On Windows XP, the problem is not eliminated but now it should be a simple matter of pressing the affected key once to disengage the "stuck" mode and return to normal operation. If some Pro Tools operations still appear unresponsive, wait 30 seconds until normal operation is restored.

Audio routing could be lost when turning off DSP Cache during playback. (PTSW-130638)

* DSP Cache on/off switch is not accessible during playback. There is no need to toggle this parameter during playback as it only affects session close/open behavior.

On Windows, Runtime errors and crash when using ZIO ADR Express with Pro Tools and recording to ISIS volume. (PTSW-125770, PTSW-125771, PTSW-129529)

* Pro Tools would crash or a runtime error would be encountered while using ZIO ADR Express with Pro Tools during recording to ISIS volume, or immediately after recording to ISIS volume while editing, undoing, or scrubbing.

Recording gets lost if timeline selection markers are moved during QuickPunch or TrackPunch record. (PTSW-128879)

* Moving the timeline selection markers during QP record would cause deletion of the file being recorded.

DigiTrace log files (.dlog) not written when the user is not an Administrator account. (PTSW-53712)

* DigiTrace files were being placed next to the Pro Tools application, but this path was not allowed for non-admin users. To fix this, .dlog files are written to a new location:
o Mac OS X: /Users/<User>/Library/Logs/AvidLogFiles
o Windows XP: \Documents and Settings\<user>\AvidLogFiles
o Windows 7: \Users/<user>\AvidLogFiles

Included from Pro Tools HD 8.1cs1

Fixed: Crash when importing aux tracks via import session data. (PTSW-129732)

* Pro Tools could crash with "Floating point exception in thread MainThread at address 0x0" or similar errors when importing Aux tracks from another session.

Fixed: Pro Tools running on Windows XP is not creating a log files folder for reporting assertions. (PTSW-122716)

* Pro Tools was not creating proper log files folder or log files to assist technical support with troubleshooting.

DigiTest updated to be compatible with SYNC HD Revision H and higher.

* SYNC HD units with Rev H serial numbers (and higher) require a newer firmware that is included in this update of DigiTest.
* Units will be delivered pre-programmed with the correct firmware version. However, if there is ever a need to update the firmware users should use this version of DigiTest (or higher).
* The DigiTest version included with this update is also compatible with SYNC HD units with pre Rev H serial numbers.
