  • On Windows, Pro Tools LE was recording audio to the timeline early by approximately twice the H/W buffer size. (PTSW-130757)

  • * Audio was recorded early depending on the hardware buffer size selected. This problem was specific to Pro Tools LE 8.0.4 on Windows. Fixed in the included Pro Tools LE Avid Audio Drivers installer.

  • On Windows, 002 and 003 optical signal is not monitored when Low Latency Monitoring (LLM) is enabled. (PTSW-130422)

  • * Optical signal was not passing through to Main Output on 002 and 003 when LLM was enabled. This problem was specific to the 002 and 003 devices running Pro Tools LE 8.0.4 on Windows. Fixed in the included Pro Tools LE Avid Audio Drivers installer.

  • 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 8.0.4, 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//Library/Logs/AvidLogFiles
    o Windows XP: \Documents and Settings\\AvidLogFiles
    o Windows 7: \Users/\AvidLogFiles

  • On Windows, when selecting the Audio Plug-ins Guide link in the Help menu, the wrong guide is opened. (PTSW-129920)

  • * The correct guide is now opened.

  • When selecting Audio Plug-ins Guide in the Help menu, a dialog appears: "Could not find help file DigiRack Plug-Ins Guide.pdf!" (PTSW-129870)

  • * This problem is fixed.

  • The "Support FAQ.pdf" in Documentation -> Pro Tools is the wrong version. (PTSW-129915)

  • * The correct version is now installed. This problem affected Windows Pro Tools M-Powered only.

    In August 2009 we announced that Pro Tools 8.0.1 would be the last full Pro Tools release to support PowerPC-based Macs, the original Mbox, and Expansion|HD chassis. We have continued to monitor the performance of 8.0.1 and now, based on user feedback, we are pleased to offer you one final Pro Tools software update—Pro Tools 8.0.1cs2—to address your most requested fixes.

  • Fixed: Hang after committing a relink command (Item #126210)

  • * In some cases, Pro Tools could hang indefinitely when relinking to missing files that had fade files attached.

  • Fixed: Pro Tools could crash after using the Shift+S shortcut to solo (Item #121375)

  • * Resolved an issue in which Pro Tools could crash after using the Shift+S keyboard shortcut to repeatedly solo/un-solo a track.

  • Fixed: Locked Region Groups and Conforming (Item #3112)

  • * In Pro Tools 8.0.1, region groups containing one or more locked regions could cause some regions to become offset when conforming (i.e. shuffle mode edits). This issue is now resolved.

  • Fixed: Trimming grouped MIDI regions (Item #121347)

  • * Pro Tools could crash (Mac) or post an Access Violation (Windows) when trimming out a grouped MIDI region containing automation data. This has been resolved.

  • Fixed: Hang after clicking in certain fields in the Score Setup window (Item #121342)

  • * After clicking in the Below Title and Composer or Below Chord Symbols or Diagrams fields, Pro Tools would post the dialog, "This field requires values in the range of 5.00 and 999.00." Clicking OK would not close the window and the only option was to force quit.

  • Fixed: When a selection contains tracks in playlist view and an aux track, pasting crashes Pro Tools (Item #121356)

  • * Issue resolved where Pro Tools would crash in certain situations when copying and pasting in playlist view.

  • Fixed: Pro Tools wouldn't launch on Macs configured for Open Directory or Network Home Directories (Item #121361)

  • * On Mac systems configured for Network Home Directories (i.e. Open Directory), Pro Tools would post "Pro Tools has unexpectedly quit" error at launch. This has been resolved.

  • Fixed: Pro Tools is unable to import audio files from some CDs (Item #125667)

  • * Pro Tools is unable to import audio files with names containing the characters : or / from CDs which have been cataloged by iTunes. Dragging files from the CD to Pro Tools causes a crash, the Import Audio dialog does not allow you to select the files for import, and the Workspace browser doesn't display the CD at all.

    Fixed: Hang after committing a relink command (Item #122000)
    * In some cases, Pro Tools could hang indefinitely when relinking to missing files that had fade files attached


    Fixed: When writing plug-in automation in Latch mode, stopping the pass may cause Pro Tools to store different automation data than was being written while playing (Item #121997)
    * In some cases, plug-in automation written in latch mode could contain an incorrect automation spike beyond the position where playback was stopped


    Fixed: Pro Tools is unable to import audio files from some CDs (Item #123245)
    * Pro Tools is unable to import audio files with names containing the characters : or / from CDs which have been cataloged by iTunes. Dragging files from the CD to Pro Tools causes a crash, the Import Audio dialog does not allow you to select the files for import, and the Workspace browser doesn't display the CD at all.


    Fixed: Pro Tools wouldn't launch on Macs configured for Open Directory or Network Home Directories (Item #3123)
    * On Mac systems configured for Network Home Directories (i.e. Open Directory), Pro Tools would post "Pro Tools has unexpectedly quit" error at launch. This has been resolved.


    Fixed: Changing user on shared storage system while Pro Tools is launched does not update user access rights. Pro Tools must be relaunched for changes to be applied. (Items #122032, #57201)
    * Previously, when changing users on a shared storage system, Pro Tools would not update its user access privileges for workspaces until Pro Tools was relaunched. Thus, a user who should have read/write permissions on a given workspace may have read only access. This has been resolved.
    m-powered Pro Tools M-Powered v 8.0.3cs1 Jan 19, 2010 MacOS X Intel
    Fixed: Some Eleven Rack features, HyperControl with M-Audio keyboards, and MIDI Sysex dumps not functioning properly in Pro Tools 8.0.3 (Items #120240 and MISCCOMP-61)

    * Pro Tools 8.0.3cs1 resolves an issue with MIDI Sysex in which some functions of Eleven|Rack, HyperControl with M-Audio keyboards, and MIDI Sysex dumps would not function properly.
    * This release replaces the 8.0.3 Eleven Rack Update. All users who previously downloaded the 8.0.3 Eleven Rack Update should update to 8.0.3cs1.

    mac Pro Tools M-Powered v 8.0.1 Sep 1, 2009 MacOS X UB
  • Fixed: A play command in Pro Tools may not always engage playback on the first attempt (Item #114517)

  • * After the play command, the Play and Stop buttons flash, but Pro Tools does not play. Subsequent tries will allow playback. This has been fixed in most configurations.

  • Fixed: Time stamp information missing from audio files exported from Pro Tools 8 (Item #113295)

  • * When WAV or AIFF files were exported from Pro Tools 8, the User and/or Original time stamp appear as 00:00:00:00 rather than reflecting the actual time stamp.

  • Fixed: Can't Use the Zero Numeric Key Shortcut for Play/Stop when the Workspace Browser is Open (Item #114167)

  • * Pro Tools 8cs2 introduced an issue where you could no longer use the Zero numeric key keyboard shortcut to start or stop playback while the Workspace Browser was open.

  • Fixed: Sluggish Scrolling Performance in Pro Tools 8 (Item #117308)

  • * When scrolling vertically or horizontally in Pro Tools 8, performance was sluggish compared to previous versions. Scrolling performance is now improved in Pro Tools 8.0.1.

  • Fixed: Pro Tools displays Clip Name instead of File Name when importing some audio files from the Workspace Browser (Item #115926)

  • * When importing an audio file that was created in Pro Tools 7.x into Pro Tools 8 via the Workspace browser, Pro Tools used the Clip name instead of the File name. This would not occur if importing via File>Import or dragging the file in from the Finder or Windows Explorer. This is resolved in Pro Tools 8.0.1. You must select the folder containing the audio files in the Workspace Browser and select Update Database for Selected before importing in order for this change to take affect.

  • Fixed: Field recorder file names can get truncated when importing (Item #115946)

  • * Field Recorder files with names that exceed 31 characters get truncated when importing into Pro Tools from the Workspace Browser.

  • Fixed: Converting sample rate during Save Copy In or Import Session Data adversely affects volume automation (Item #111930)

  • * Saving a session copy with sample rate conversion to a rate different from the session's may result in erroneous automation ramps between breakpoints. This is mostly evident in scenarios where a static automation level had been changed over the duration of a single region.

  • Fixed: Problems moving multiple selected regions (Item #99538)

  • * If you selected several adjacent regions, clicking on one of them to move all selected regions will only move the region you clicked on.

  • Fixed: Regions Are Inadvertently Deleted and Pro Tools Crashes When Opening Sessions Which Had Their Session Start Time Changed (Item #113177)

  • * After changing the session start time and maintaining time code, Pro Tools will delete additional playlists and crash with a kernel panic after saving and closing the session. You may see any of the following errors prior to the crash: "Could not complete the close session command because basic_string::_S_create" or "Bus error" in thread "Main Thread", at address 0x0."

  • Fixed: Crash When Moving an Automated Plug-in from Inserts F-J to Inserts A-E (Item #113115)

  • * Moving (dragging) an automated plug-in from inserts F-J to inserts A-E while the automation lane for one of the plug-in's parameters is visible may crash Pro Tools.

  • Fixed: When Using Inserts F-J, Plug-in Automation Written to One Plug-In Will Overwrite Other Automation or be Erased (Items #113097 & #113120)

  • * Writing automation to one plug-in located on inserts F-J will cause the same automation data to be written to all other plug-ins located on insert F-J on the same track. Previously existing automation will be overwritten (or erased if the "Plug-In Controls Default to Auto-Enabled" preference is checked) after saving, closing and reopening the session.

  • Fixed: Magic ID Error When Opening Sessions (Item #112750)

  • * In certain cases sessions will not open due to the following error: "Could not complete the Open Session command because magic ID does not match while translating Session Window Config." This error is more likely to occur in tandem with very large track counts (~100) and long (>1 hour) recordings.

  • Fixed: Mouse Offset and General GUI Problems With Third Party Plug-ins (Item #112890)

  • * Certain third party plug-ins such as Addictive Drums or UVI Workstation will not function correctly under Pro Tools 8. Mouse clicks are vertically offset and parts of the plug-in GUI will not draw correctly.
    Pro Tools M-Powered v 8.0cs1 Jan 20, 2009 MacOS X UB
  • Fixed: Converting Sample Rate During Save Copy In or Import Session Data Adversely Affects Volume Automation (Item #111930)

  • * Saving a session copy with sample rate conversion to a rate different from the session's may result in erroneous automation ramps between breakpoints. This is mostly evident in scenarios where a static automation level had been changed over the duration of a single region.

  • Fixed: Crash When Removing Files that are also used in Transfuser (Item #107710)

  • * Removing a file from the Pro Tools region list or project browser may crash Pro Tools if another audio file with the same name is already used by Transfuser.

  • Fixed: Channel width changes may remove downstream mono plug-ins and related automation without warning. (Item #112589)

  • * Changing the channel width by inserting a mono-to-stereo plug-in to a mono track will remove a downstream mono plug-in (and all its automation data) that resides on underlying insert slots without warning.

  • Fixed: Relink Problems With Avid Audio, and When Using Mtools, Soundminer, or NetMix to import files (Item #77061, 79230, 81138)

  • Files without unique IDs imported into Pro Tools could not be later relinked if the file name had later been changed by the user from the Finder level.
    Using "Automatically Copy on Import" created a duplicate file only when using Soundminer. Only the Pro Tools-created file (with an appended "2") was assigned a Unique ID.
    Relink problems would occur when reopening the session
    Pro Tools will now:
    Automatically add a unique ID to audio files when opening a session or importing audio.
    Recognize Avid unique IDs, even when DigiTranslator is not present.

  • Fixed: When Using Network Home Directories, Pro Tools Would Not Launch if the Library/Preferences Directories Were Not On A Local File System (Item #78524)


  • Fixed - Standard Type 1 MIDI files, exported from Pro Tools 7.x, could not be read by some applications (item #71254)
  • Pro Tools M-Powered v 7.1cs10 Oct 6, 2006 MacOS X PPC
  • Fixed: Importing Files By Drag and Drop Could Prevent The Session From Being Saved (Item #80417)

  • MP3, MP4, WAV and AIFF were affected
    A subsequent Save, Save As, Save A Copy or Auto-Backup would result in an assertion error
    Note: this problem was inadvertently introduced in Pro Tools LE 7.1cs9

  • Fixed - Standard Type 1 MIDI files, exported from Pro Tools 7.x, could not be read by some applications (item #71254)


  • Fixed: Relink Problems When Using Mtools, Soundminer, or NetMix to import files (Item #81138)

  • Using "Automatically Copy on Import" created a duplicate file only when using Soundminer. Only the Pro Tools-created file (with an appended "2") was assigned a Unique ID.
    No Unique ID was being added to files imported by Mtools or Netmix

  • Fixed: Volumes With Japanese Naming Will Not Mount In DigiBase (Item #73463)

  • DVD, CD, and hard drive volumes with Japanese naming will not mount in DigiBase.
    It was also not possible to create a Pro Tools session on a Japanese-named volume without getting an error.

  • Fixed: Some Automation Moves Could Be Written Incorrectly When Writing Immediately After A "Play" Command (Item#78032)

  • This could occur when touching a control immediately after a "play" command, but before the transport started moving.

  • Fixed: Potential Problems When Relinking Audio Files (Item #77061, #79230)

  • If DigiTranslator was not installed, Pro Tools would assign a new unique ID to a copy of an Avid audio file when using "Save A Copy." This was because Pro Tools required DigiTranslator to read Avid unique IDs.
    Files without unique IDs imported into Pro Tools could not be later relinked if the file name had later been changed by the user from the Finder level.
    Pro Tools will now function in the following way:
    Automatically add a unique ID (as needed) to audio files when opening a session or importing audio.
    Recognize Avid unique IDs, even when DigiTranslator is not installed.
    Note: DigiTranslator is not compatible with Pro Tools M-Powered software.

  • Fixed: When Using Network Home Directories, Pro Tools Would Not Launch if the Library/Preferences Directories Were Not On A Local File System (Item #78524)

  • Network Home Directories are sometimes used to provide the same settings and files to users on multiple machines on a network. This fix allows the Library/Preferences Directories to be on a Network Home Directory instead of being required to be on the individual local system.

  • Additional M-Audio Interface Support

  • The following M-Audio interfaces are newly supported in Pro Tools M-Powered 7.1:
    Fast Track Pro
    JamLab

  • Default Track Timebase when Creating New Tracks

  • When creating tracks with the New Track command, the Track Timebase (samples or ticks) will default to the timebase that was last used for the track type in the New Track dialog.
    In addition, when creating new audio tracks with the Import > Audio to Track command or by dragging audio files into the timeline, the Track Timebase (samples or ticks) will default to the New Track dialog's last used timebase for audio tracks. Exceptions are tick-based file formats (such as ACID and REX files), which will default to ticks.

  • Support for Co-Installation of Pro Tools LE and M-Powered on the Same Computer

  • Pro Tools LE 7.1 and Pro Tools M-Powered 7.1 can be installed on the same Digidesign-qualified computer.
    Co-installation is only supported when Pro Tools LE and M-Powered have the exact same version number.

    Pro Tools M-Powered v 7.0cs4 Feb 4, 2006 MacOS X PPC
    Fixed: When Recording on a Track with a Long Track Name, Recording Would Stop After 5 Minutes (Item #71869)
    This would happen with a file name longer than 26 characters, as this could result in a file with more than 31 characters.

    Fixed: Pro Tools Can Freeze When Attempting To Make a Crossfade (Item #72143)
    This would happen when attempting to bring up the Fades dialog if there was no underlying data to make the crossfade. Fade commands that do not bring up the Fades dialog would not cause the problem.
    Pro Tools M-Powered v 7.0cs3 Jan 14, 2006 MacOS X PPC

    Digidesign Pro Tools M-Powered Pro Tools M-Powered v 8.0.4cs2 Oct 19, 2010 Windows
  • On Windows, Pro Tools LE was recording audio to the timeline early by approximately twice the H/W buffer size. (PTSW-130757)

  • * Audio was recorded early depending on the hardware buffer size selected. This problem was specific to Pro Tools LE 8.0.4 on Windows. Fixed in the included Pro Tools LE Avid Audio Drivers installer.

  • On Windows, 002 and 003 optical signal is not monitored when Low Latency Monitoring (LLM) is enabled. (PTSW-130422)

  • * Optical signal was not passing through to Main Output on 002 and 003 when LLM was enabled. This problem was specific to the 002 and 003 devices running Pro Tools LE 8.0.4 on Windows. Fixed in the included Pro Tools LE Avid Audio Drivers installer.

  • 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 8.0.4, 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//Library/Logs/AvidLogFiles
    o Windows XP: \Documents and Settings\\AvidLogFiles
    o Windows 7: \Users/\AvidLogFiles

  • On Windows, when selecting the Audio Plug-ins Guide link in the Help menu, the wrong guide is opened. (PTSW-129920)

  • * The correct guide is now opened.

  • When selecting Audio Plug-ins Guide in the Help menu, a dialog appears: "Could not find help file DigiRack Plug-Ins Guide.pdf!" (PTSW-129870)

  • * This problem is fixed.

  • The "Support FAQ.pdf" in Documentation -> Pro Tools is the wrong version. (PTSW-129915)

  • * The correct version is now installed. This problem affected Windows Pro Tools M-Powered only.
