Pro Tools 8 is up on Digidesignsrs"s website. Rather than copy and paste their features, Iers"ll let you read.

Well, this does follow Digidesign ’s long standing M.O: Make the effort to include new features ONLY when other products on the market have established those features as being desirable to the public and ONLY when excluding those features would clearly have a negative impact on the decision to purchase Protools; Do not worry about being the first, being the best, or challenging any existing norms.
Guess Id’ll be returning my mbox2 mini I just bought and waiting for them to rebundle it with pro tools 8. Anyone know when this is coming out? I prefer Logic for composing and most things, but I keep finding myself needing to have pro tools for exporting projects for filmmakers, for editing, and for engineering at pro studios.
Some of this is definitely not groundbreaking, I agree. But it is important to me that they ’ve integrated Sibelius. In’m curious to see how they have done that, and I think /— even if youg’re not looking to switch to Pro Tools e— ita’ll be interesting over the coming weeks to judge what the payoff is there. It ’s an interesting idea, and ought to make for some interesting discussion.
