What's Fixed in Pro Tools LE 6.9cs4?

Pro Tools LE 6.9cs4 for Windows XP contains the following:

Fixed: When Importing AAFs From Avid, Parsing Errors and Missed Translations on Some Tracks May Occur (Item #65232)

  • An AAF from Media Composer Adrenaline 2.1.x, Xpress Pro 5.1.x, News Cutter Adrenaline & News Cutter XP 6.1.x may give parsing errors when imported into Pro Tools and some tracks may not translate correctly. In addition to this fix, Digidesign recommends that Avid users update to the latest version available.

Fixed: Inconsistent Lock Times or Intermittent Locks When Syncing to Time Code (Item #65348, 68657, 53450)

  • Lock times could vary from short, to very long, or no lock at all until you stopped the code and tried again. Also, record passes could result in "missed sync point" or -6085 errors, or "missed the sync point, due to time spend allocating disk space," while play passes could result in "waiting for sync" or "waiting for sync point."

Fixes Included From Pro Tools LE 6.9cs3

Fixed: The Key Command Sequence for Fine-Tuning Automation Breakpoints Had Changed (Item #65387)

  • The "fine-tune breakpoint" Control key functionality has now been restored to the pre-Pro Tools 6.9 behavior. The key command for "Write Level Constrained to Next Breakpoint" (new to 6.9) has been changed from "Control-click" to "Alt-Shift-click." The key command for "Write Level Constrained to Previous Breakpoint" remains "Control-Alt-click".

Fixed: After Several Hours of Continuous Working, Pro Tools Could Slow Down or Stop Responding (Item #58423)

  • A low-memory condition could be created by repeated stops and starts over a several-hour period, causing a slowdown, or eventual crash.

Note: There were no Pro Tools LE 6.9cs1 or 6.9cs2 releases.

Who Should Use Pro Tools LE 6.9cs4?

This update is recommended for all Pro Tools LE 6.9 for Windows XP users and contains fixes in the following areas:

  • Locking to time code
  • Importing AAF from Avid applications
  • Editing automation breakpoints
Important: Pro Tools LE 6.9cs4 is provided as an interim "customer support (CS)" release to address the issues described. While our testing has not shown these changes to introduce other problems, this version has not been fully qualified by Digidesign.
