According to a Digidesign source, Protools 6 should be available in end of November, on Mac OS X. Protools LE versions would appear later.
An OS 9 version was NOT mentioned!!!
This version should support HD systems,but older hardwares were also NOT mentioned!!!

The 6 version should add the following features:

- a new archive/backup feature allows to define all the local disk as well as all the network connected disks to become audio disks, archive disks or storage disks. Protools will use this to backup in the background and manage archives easely.

- A new "sherlock-like" find function will greatly improve the audio files management: Folders and sub-folder sorting will be possible. Names databases of the major sound FX collections (Sound Ideas was mentionned) would be included.

- A multi-user management would be added.

- The look has been seriously enhanced.

- The Beat Detective also get some improvements.

- The MIDI functions have been revisited (nevertheless no score view)

We strongly hope that the OS9 no-support and Mix Cards no-support is a false information. We will soon know more about it...

We get more info from our source: Protools 6 should be showed during AES show, next month. It should be released, as expected in december first week. LE versions should also be launched at the same time, except for the DIGI002. Our source confirmed that this will be an OSX version only, but that Mix cards will finally be supported (great!!!). Current TDM plug-ins will be compatible with protools 6 (some requiring a minor update) but RTAS plug-ins will need to be rewritten. Note that this version will fully support (and use) dual-processors macs.
more news later...

On the DUC they said that Pro Tools 6 wil support the older TDM, including the Mix Plus. The dual mac processor thing I am not sure about though. There has been a demand for this for a long time. Until they fix the whole automatic latency correction thing, to me it will just be a minor upgrade. OS X is way cooler than OS 9, but I would love it if they solved the latency thing.
