DigiTranslator 2.0 Requirements
DigiTranslator 2.0 is integrated into Pro Tools 5.1.3 & 5.3.1, and therefore shares the same system requirements, as listed in the rest of the Digidesign Compatibility Documents. When using DigiTranslator 2.0 functions for large sessions or large files, you may need to increase the amount of RAM allocated to the Pro Tools application.
Basic Requirements Pro Tools|HD Systems with Pro Tools 5.3.1:
*DigiTranslator 2.0 includes an iLok License Card. iLok USB Hardware Key sold separately, available from your Authorized Digidesign Dealer or the DigiStore (iLok USB Hardware Key included with all new Pro Tools|HD core systems)
Basic Requirements Pro Tools|24 and MIX Systems with Pro Tools 5.1.3:
**iLok authorization requires Pro Tools 5.3.1 or higher. DigiTranslator 2.0 can only be authorized by floppy disk when used with Pro Tools 5.1.3 software and Pro Pro Tools|24 and MIX Systems on OS 9.
Pro Tools LE Systems Not Supported on Mac OS 9
Pro Tools LE systems with Pro Tools version 5.x software for Mac OS 9 do not support DigiTranslator 2.0. See DigiTranslator 2.0 for Pro Tools 6 Mac OS X Systems for PT 6 LE and TDM systems.
DigiTranslator 1.0 is a standalone application. Though it does not have all of the flexibility or features of version 2.0, DigiTranslator 1.0 does not require any Pro Tools hardware or software. For this reason, DigiTranslator 1.0 can be installed and used on a Pro Tools system, on an Avid video workstation, or on a low-cost, dedicated "offline" system in a machine room, for example. DigiTranslator 1.0 is sold bundled with DigiTranslator 2.0. (Note: purchase includes only one authorization, so you may use both versions on the same machine only)
Features not supported by DigiTranslator 1.0
DigiTranslator 1.0 Requirements:
*DigiTranslator 1.0 will not work on Mac OS X, or in Classic mode when booted in OS X. DigiTranslator 2.0 and Pro Tools 6.0 or higher are required to use DigiTranslator on Mac OS X. There is no "standalone" version of DigiTranslator for Mac OS X or Windows XP.
