Pro Tools 8.0.4 Released

A new and free upgrade for Pro Tools (Mac and Windows) has been released and it fixes a huge number of bugs. You can read the full list here, but some of the problems solved include:

  • Cannot create a fade at the front of a region with the Smart Tool
  • Page up/down/end/home keys stop working temporarily
  • Hang after recording with Waveforms set to Power view
  • When writing plug-in automation in Latch mode, stopping the pass may cause Pro Tools to store different automation data than what was written during playback.

The new update supports Mac OS X 10.6.1, 10.6.2, 10.6.3 (Snow Leopard),  Mac OS X 10.5.8 (Leopard) and Windows XP Service Pack 3 (Home or Professional, 32-bit), Windows Vista Service Pack 2 (32-bit).

I’ll have an in-depth look at the new version with more info soon. I’m hoping the next upgrade includes repairs from my list of Top 3 Most Annoying Pro Tools 8 Bugs.

UPDATE: 6/11/10 from a user post on the DUC forum

“I just spent 90 minutes with Digi (Avid) only to be told there is an “issue” popping up with 8.0.4 and Audio Suite. On my system, I am getting -7453 errors when trying to preview. On some plugins like Pitch N’ Time Pro and Izotope RX, they simply don’t preview, and then they render out a blank file. Some of the Digi plug ins work, but I get an “Access Violation” error, and sometimes Pro Tools just quits.

I sent in the error log to them, and they are going over it. In the mean time, they told me to go back to 8.0.3 cs2. They also recommended that my colleagues here in town not go to 8.0.4 yet until they do more research into Audio Suite issues.”
