iLok Authorized Plug-Ins

Although not required with Pro Tools installation, an iLok USB Hardware Key may be required for installation of some plug-ins and optional software applications.

Hard Drives — Audio Storage Requirements

Although limited recording and playback of audio tracks may be possible using the internal drive in the iBook, a separate dedicated audio hard drive is highly recommended for maximum performance and track count.

Firewire Hard Drives

Maximum Performance Guidelines

  • Recording to the system startup drive is not recommended or supported
  • When using FireWire storage with 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 using a 1 meter firewire cable, then connect the Digi 002 to the drives

Known Incompatibilities

  • Pro Tools 6 does not work in the OS 9 "Classic Mode". You must choose Mac OS X as your Startup Disk.

Digidesign Core Audio Driver for Mac OS X

  • Digidesign Core Audio Driver 6.1.1 or higher required to support the Digi 002 or Digi 002 Rack hardware.
