Pro Tools TDM 6.4.1cs3 Update

For Pro Tools|24 MIX Systems with Pro Tools TDM 6.4.1 for Mac OS X 10.3

What's Fixed in Pro Tools TDM 6.4.1cs3?

Pro Tools TDM 6.4.1cs3 for Mac OS X contains the following:

Fixed: Launching or Creating a Session with More Than 16 Mono Bus or Output Paths May Result in a Crash (Item #57053)

  • This crash would only occur when all active bus paths were mono (no stereo paths or mono sub-paths) and a Surround Mixer plug-in was installed.

Includes fixes from Pro Tools TDM 6.4.1cs2:

Fixed: Inconsistent Automation Playback and Audio Distortion (Item # 56215)

  • Using a surround mixer in certain configurations would cause inconsistent automation playback and/or audio distortion and corrupted preferences.

Includes fixes from Pro Tools TDM 6.4.1cs1:

Fixed: When Using Pro Tools in +12 dB Fader Gain Mode, the Level on Outputs Could Be Incorrectly Increased by Up to18 dB (Item #54461)

  • Creating a large session where the mixer is spread out over multiple DSPs could result in output levels increasing by up to 18 dB.

Fixed: Intermittent Pops or Incorrect Audio when Playing a Session (Item #54406)

  • When playing a session, occasional pops or random audio could be heard. The problem could be exacerbated by using a high Hardware Buffer setting.

Fixed: Potential Crash when Opening Sessions Containing Assigned MIDI Inputs or Outputs (Items #52092, 54498)

  • A crash occurs when opening some sessions with saved MIDI sources or destinations.

Fixed: When Importing or Browsing OMF Media That Referenced Certain SD II Files, Pro Tools Would Crash (Item #51931)

  • Pro Tools 6.4.1 crashes when importing an OMF or browsing OMF media containing SDII audio with a .OMF extension.

Fixed: Problems when Relinking SD II Media Containing a .omf Extension (Item #51955)

  • Pro Tools 6.4.1 fails to relink, or crashes when attempting to relink SD II audio with a .OMF extension.

Fixed: Sample-Rate Error Messages when Importing an OMF (Item #49709)

  • When importing certain OMFs, Pro Tools would display the error, "Could not create a new document because: an unexpected error happened while trying to determine the file’s audio sample rate." The prior workaround was to use DigiTranslator 1.x.
