Is Pro Tools dead?

Personally, I think this is a commercially-inspired smear - don't know the background, but even if Digidesign loses its separate identity within Avid, why should they foolishly risk damaging a powerful and respected brand?

From my pov, I don't actually care. I still feel I'm barely scratching the surface of my Pro Tools rig - development is hardly an issue, nor is support, while we have Brad and Chris Bryant!.

If someone else can integrate hardware monitoring as well as TDM does, but somehow uncap the DSP limitations of the TDM process cards, that will be the system to beat.

And it likely won't run PT software, which has always had a subpar featureset.

Can you control the hardware montior mix with the included DSP (of MOTU interfaces) inside DP now, or do you still have to go into their Cuemix software to set that up? I think that's the future-effectively a TDM like solution for monitoring, with the mix processing done on the host CPU, so every upgrade gives you more horsepower. Limited DSP included in the audio hardware for use in monitoring. And the ability to split tracks between drives for high rez (one feature that as far as I know, is still unique to PT).

Personally, I just dont get all the DIGI HATE. Hey , if you gots the dough and its needed for your clients, why the heck not?
If it doesnt do what you need then find something else, lifes TOO short IMO.

For me, too overkill as its just ME.

I think PT has WAY too much hype surrounding it for the noobs ("Oh, you record music? Do you use Protools?" ), but it is certainly not a piece of crap.

If you need PT compatibility, then PT LE and M-Powered makes complete sense. If you don't specifically NEED PT compatiblity and don't want to go with PT-HD and the associated cost involved, then there are superior native solutions available IMNSHO...

I personally couldn't give a rats ass what they do ;\)
