What's in Pro Tools LE 6.2.3b1?

Pro Tools LE 6.2.3b1 has removed the requirement for Pro Tools users to have Administrator Privileges.

Please Note: Pro Tools installation and operation remains the same as previous Pro Tools releases for Mac OS X in the following ways:

  • Pro Tools LE 6.2.3b1 still requires an Administrator for installation.
  • Pro Tools LE 6.2.3b1 still allows different users to save their Pro Tools user Preferences. Separate versions of Pro Tools Preferences will be stored in individual user's Home directories if they alter the existing Pro Tools Preferences.
  • As with previous Pro Tools releases, users still have global Read/Write privileges on all Pro Tools related files and settings (other than the Pro Tools user Preferences referenced above).
