Maximum Performance Guidelines

  • Recording to the system startup drive is not recommended or supported
  • For desktop models, a separate internal (IDE) or external dedicated FireWire drive is highly recommended for maximum performance and track count
  • Although limited recording and playback of audio tracks may be possible using the internal drive in PowerBook 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.
  • When using FireWire storage with Digi 002 Rack, connect the Digi 002 Rack 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 Rack to the drives

Known Incompatibilities

  • Pro Tools LE 6.1 or higher required to use SCSI devices with the Digi 002 Rack
  • Recording with the Digi 002 Rack to a FireWire drive connected to any of the 3 built-in Firewire ports on the 2003 PowerMac G4 "FW800" models can result in -6085 errors. On these computers, Digidesign recommends using a dedicated internal ATA/IDE drive for recording. If using FireWire drives with Digi 002 Rack & 2003 G4 FW800 computers, a FireWire PCI adapter card must be used.
  • Digi 002 Rack will not function if any Digidesign PCI cards are installed in the CPU. (Digi 001, Audiomedia III, TDM cards, SampleCell)
  • 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 6.1.1 or higher required to support the Digi 002 or Digi 002 Rack hardware.

Supported CPU Models, Speeds & Requirements

Note – the best performance with Mac OS X and Digi 002 Rack is achieved by using fast dual processor Macs. Slower, single processor Macs will work with Digi 002 Rack, but at a reduced track and/or plug-in count. Pro Tools 6 for Mac OS X is fully compatible with Apple dual processor models. There is no need to install any additional software.

  • Apple Power Mac G3 Blue & White and older
  • Apple iMac (G3 models)
  • Apple eMac

  • Apple iBook ("Clamshell")

Power Mac G5 Requires Pro Tools LE 6.2.3

System Software

Mac OS 10.2.6 or 10.2.8 (Jaguar) Required for Pro Tools LE 6.1.2

Total System RAM

  • 384 MB minimum, 512 or higher recommended
  • More RAM increases overall system and Pro Tools performance
  • 512 MB RAM or higher suggested for sessions with high edit density, extensive use of plug-ins, or simultaneous use with MIDI sequencers
  • DigiTranslator 2.0 will also require additional RAM
  • OS X does not require minimum or preferred RAM settings for Pro Tools as RAM is dynamically allocated

Note: In Pro Tools 6.0.x, the maximum allowable RAM was 1.5 GB. MDD G4 models with 2.0 GB would cause a "NeoAccess Error" and Pro Tools would not boot unless some RAM was removed. This issue is solved in Pro Tools 6.1 and higher. Answerbase Details
