Is this only an updater, and does 6.7 or 6.9 need to be installed already? I'm having problems opening the file it puts on my desktop so I'm assuming it needs prior app. info.

strangest update ever. My G5 wouldn't recognize what the file was, so I had to download the upgrade on my Powerbook and transfer the update to my new computer once it had been recognized. Weird!

If anyone's unclear on this (it can get confusing), if you bought PTLE + Digi hardware after Sept 25, 2004, you can get PTLE 6.7 for free by sending the appropriate PTLE 6.7 Update Request Form to Digidesign; then you can upgrade all the way to 6.9.2 (which is approved for use with Tiger [not Tigger, as I initially thought it was called.])

If you bought PTLE + Digi hardware before Sept 25, 2004, it's all the same except the upgrade to 6.7 costs $75.

I was disappointed about one thing in 6.7; the color coding. First of all, the part of the strip that shows the color is tiny, and many of the colors are hard to differentiate in such a small area; secondly, I would like to be able to make the colors of the waveforms match the color coding on the track so I don't have to glance back at the 'scribble strip' to know where I am.

I'm sure someone there is listening.





hellooooooooooo......

You can do this by going into the Preferences and selecting the "Display" dialogue.

Set the "Default Track Color Coding" to "Track Type", and the "Default Region Color Coding" to "Track Color".

That's how I have mine set up and I'm getting the waveforms the same color as the little color indicator on the left side of the channel display. Well, I'm using 6.9, but I think this feature was introduced in 6.7.

I didn't think they'd go to all that trouble and then not implement that feature. It seems like a small thing, but I'm very excited to have learned this! (Thanks, Albert!)

I used to be so much better about going through all the documentation, but these days, as soon as I get through two or three pages, my eyes glaze over and I fall asleep.

I use manuals mostly when I get into a spot that I can't figure out. But what I usually do when learning software is just go through all the preferences, all the menus, click all the buttons, just try everything on the screen. With the manual nearby! Reading them though from beginning to end is usually a great cure for insomnia though. thumbsup
