Digidesign's free creation software bundle that will be included with all new Pro Tools® TDM or LE systems comes with Propellerhead Software Reason Adapted, Ableton Live Digidesign Edition, and IK Multimedia AmpliTube LE, SampleTank SE and T-RackS EQ, in addition to core Pro Tools software.

“Our new partnerships with Ableton, IK Multimedia and Propellerhead provide Pro Tools users with an incredible rich, varied and powerful palate of tools that allow them to start creating in new ways ‘right out of the box,’” stated Dave Lebolt, Digidesign general manager. “Now, musicians will have a vast new 'construction set' of music-making possibilities available to them, regardless of their differing styles or interests. Wherever you want to go creatively, these tools can help take you there. And they’re included free in every Pro Tools system, from Mbox to Pro Tools|HD—across the entire Pro Tools product line.”

Propellerhead Software Reason Adapted provides a virtual rack of MIDI-based innovative synthesizers, samplers, drum machines and effects. All audio from Reason Adapted can be streamed directly into the Pro Tools mixer via ReWire for additional processing within Pro Tools.

Ableton Live allows the user to launch loops or sound effects on-the-fly. Live also features automatic beat-matching and real-time quantization. IK Multimedia SampleTank SE is a special-edition RTAS virtual instrument plug-in. AmpliTube LE is an RTAS guitar processing and amp modeling plug-in that provides users a variety of amplifier and cabinet models, as well as classic stomp box and other effects. T-RackS EQ is the EQ module from the company's T-RackS analog mastering suite. T-RackS EQ offers Pro Tools users a powerful, high quality tube-modeled parametric EQ as an RTAS plug-in for use in mixing and mastering.
