Daly City, CA â€” Digidesign today announced Pro Tools Mania, a special one-day-only event taking place this Saturday, September 13, 2008. Hosted by participating dealers across the United States, Pro Tools Mania will feature incentive programs on Pro Tools LE systems and peripherals, as well as promotional giveaways, contests, educational seminars, and other special events.
As part of Pro Tools Mania festivities, the first 20 people to purchase an MboxÂ® 2 Pro, MboxÂ® 2 Pro Factory, 003 Rack, 003Â® Rack Factory, or 003 Factory at any participating dealer on September 13 will receive a free copy of Transfuserâ„¢ (normally $295 USD), Digidesignâ€™s exciting new loop production virtual instrument. Participating Pro Tools Mania dealers will be offering other special incentives as well. In addition, local Digidesign representatives will be on hand at select locations to offer tips, give out free prizes, and more.
The top choice among artists of all levels, Pro Tools LE systems offer the ultimate, affordable way to compose, record, edit, and mix audio using a powerful personal studio based around the worldâ€™s most widely-used digital audio software. Pro Tools LE systems are turnkey solutions that combine Pro Tools LE software with a family of versatile, dependable hardware interfaces, ranging from the award-winning MboxÂ® 2 family to the acclaimed 003Â® Rack and 003Â® Factory. Each system also includes a full complement of professional sound processing plug-ins and virtual instruments, making it a complete package for music creation and sound production right out of the box.
Pro Tools LE systems also offer session compatibility with Pro Tools|HDÂ® systems, the industry standard in professional recording and post-production studios worldwide. And because Digidesign offers the industryâ€™s most attractive hardware exchange programs, allowing users to move up to other Pro Tools LE or Pro Tools|HD systems as their needs grow, Pro Tools Mania is a great opportunity for new users to get started making music, with powerful, professional-grade tools and workflows that will serve them now and in the future.
