What's Fixed in Pro Tools TDM 6.4cs6?

Certain automation parameter data of certain plug-ins are lost when read by Pro Tools 6.4 if the automation was written using Pro Tools 6.2.3 or earlier (Item #51570)

  • Sessions created on Pro Tools 6.2.3 or earlier will lose certain plug-in automation data when opened on Pro Tools 6.4.
  • Sessions created on Pro Tools 6.4 (without this update) will lose those same automation parameters when opened on Pro Tools 6.2.3 or earlier, or on upcoming Pro Tools versions.

In order to maintain compatibility with prior and future releases of Pro Tools, we highly recommend that all Pro Tools 6.4 customers install this update.

Since Pro Tools TDM 6.4cs6 only updates plug-ins, customers can install it over any version of Pro Tools TDM 6.4.

Please take note of each plug-in’s affected automation parameters listed below.

  • If you have not automated any of the below parameters in Pro Tools 6.4, you should run this updater now.
  • If you have written these parameters in any Pro Tools 6.4 sessions, you should make a copy of your plug-ins folder and keep it on your desktop. Then run the Pro Tools 6.4cs6 Plug-In updater. Your active plug-ins folder will be updated, but whenever you need to open a session containing the incompatible automation parameters, you should swap plug-in folders with the old version on your desktop. Be sure to swap back when you are done so that all future sessions remain forward and backward compatible. Be sure to keep notes with any Pro Tools 6.4 sessions that have been archived as to which versions of the plug ins are required. The plug-ins folder is located at (Startup Drive)/Library/Application Support/Digidesign.
