Apple Power Mac G4 "Mirrored Drive Doors" Models — Dual 867 MHz, Dual 1 GHz, and Dual 1.25 GHz

Some Digi 001 users have experienced a system hang on startup with early models of these CPUs. If you have experienced this problem with a Digi 001 when connected to one of the "mirrored door" G4s, you should contact AppleCare at 1 800 APL-CARE (within the U.S.). For those customers outside of the US, there should be an AppleCare card included in your Apple product packaging which has the local AppleCare phone number. When contacting AppleCare, customers should refer to the "Digidesign Digi 001 audio system".

Audio Storage Requirements for Record and Playback:

SCSI Accelerator (Host Bus Adapter) Card NOT required:

Although Pro Tools LE 6.1 supports a full 32 tracks of record and playback on a dedicated ATA/IDE or Firewire hard drive, use of a SCSI HBA card with a SCSI drive can increase some performance aspects of your Pro Tools system: for more information refer to the Audio Storage Requirements page.
