Maximum Performance Guidelines

  • Recording to the system startup drive is not recommended or supported
  • For desktop models, a separate internal or external dedicated audio hard drive is highly recommended for maximum performance and track count (see Hard Drive Minimum Requirements)
  • Although limited recording and playback of audio tracks may be possible using the internal drive in PowerBook, iBook, and iMac models, a separate external dedicated audio hard drive is highly recommended for maximum performance and track count. Digidesign recommends the use of FireWire drives for use with these computers. (see FireWire Drive Requirements)
  • When using FireWire storage with a Digi 002 systems, connect the Digi 002 and the drives to separate FireWire ports if possible
  • If only one port is available, connect the drives to the CPU, then connect the Digi 002 to the drives
  • For best performance, it is suggested that you set your monitor to 256 colors

Known Incompatibilities

  • Digi 002 will not function if any other Digidesign PCI cards are installed in the CPU. (Digi 001, Audiomedia III, TDM cards)
  • Pro Tools LE 5.3.2 is specific to the Digi 002. It will not work with any other Digidesign hardware, such as the Mbox.
  • Pro Tools LE 5.3.2 does not work in OS X or "Classic Mode". You must choose Mac OS 9.2.2 as your Startup Disk.
  • SampleCell PCI cards (SampleCell II, SampleCell II Plus) are not compatible with Digi 002
  • Do not connect a DV video camera to the same FireWire bus as a Digi 002. Most CPUs with two FireWire ports still have only one FireWire bus. If you need to add an additional FireWire bus to your CPU, see the list of Digidesign-Qualified FireWire PCI & CardBus Cards

Supported CPU Models, Speeds & Requirements

Note: PCI-Graphics G4 desktops, Apple Cube and iMac DV are not compatible with Digi 002

Additional Computer Requirements

System Software: Mac OS v9.2.2

Version 2.5 FireWire extensions or later required

Total System RAM:

  • 256 MB minimum, 320 MB highly recommended.
  • Pro Tools LE application "Preferred Size" memory allocation set to 140 MB
  • Do not change the "Minimum Size" memory allocation
  • DAE is no longer an independent application, and therefore requires no additional RAM
  • Sessions with high edit density, sample rates above 48 kHz, extensive use of plug-ins, simultaneous use of MIDI sequencers or software options will require additional RAM. More RAM increases overall system and Pro Tools performance.
  • Virtual memory is not supported

CD-ROM drive for software installation

Monitor, color required, minimum resolution of 1024 x 768

Opcode OMS v2.3.8 or higher (supplied on CD)

Apple QuickTime v5.0.2 or higher (supplied on CD)

Storage: Hard Drive Minimum Requirements

Qualified FireWire PCI & CardBus Cards

  • A 1394 ("FireWire") controller/interface is required to connect the Digi 002 to your computer. All of the supported Apple computers listed on this page have built-in 1394 controllers, while other computers require add-in 1394 PCI or PCMCIA controller cards (purchased separately)
  • See: Digi 002 Qualified 1394 Interface Cards for more information
