Digidesign should hook us up with a mild discount for being so damn resourceful.

It sure would be nice to see a new LE unit. Don't think we're gonna see it today though....as DIGI usually has stuff up on their site long before I wake up in the morning.

I agree with Erick21 too. That guy/site doesn't seem to know anything about the product that is out now, so how could they possibly know anything about this new one.

Here's hoping for 16 digital I/O......HA! like that'll happen.

The digi site is also advertising if you upgrade from PT TDM, Mix etc to HD they will give you a 002R free.

Well, its not exactly free considering the upgrade cost, but they fact that they are going to throw in those boxes in the deal, makes me think it is perhaps the end of the 002's run.

That's all I care about. I sincerely could care less about anything else, really. If there's no 16 channels of ADAT, I'm not interested.

Wow. We must be getting close. Can somebody go to Digi headquarters and see if the front doors are being propped open by 002rs?

All the references to 003 on digi's website (including links on here) have been removed.

(in Hunter s. Thompson's voice) "what kind of games are being played here??"

What a great way for Digi to stir up interest for a future release.. They put a blurb or two on the web site for a short time and then take it down.. the public is wipped into a frenzy..

Free advertising!

And I'll repeat.
Who cares, unless they do something about the bult-in limitations of the LE software.
It doesn't matter what kind of interface they release. LE still remains a hobbyists piece of software.

And your point is?

Although I disagree with that statement, are there no hobbyists here at GS? This is the New Product Alert forum, no?

Your elitist attitude is tired.

I'm not trying to be elitist. I'm jsut wondering why all the excitement about ANOTHER interface for the same piece of limited sofwtare?
Is there something you can't do with an 002 that you need to sell that and get an 003?

Seriously, how many time are they going to re-release the Mbox ina new jacket?

I think expanding the capabilities of the software are way more important that releasing the same **** over and over.

And if your a hobbyist, then WTF would you even use PT's LE with all it's limitations, when there's much better options out there?

I'm hoping for more digital i/o, but who knows?

I agree with that sentiment, but I think there are many people that currently use their LE hardware as a dongle only. Those users could have something to look forward to, again, with the added i/o.

Ha. That one had me laugh out loud because of the answer. I feel most comfortable with PT software and probably most uncomfortable as a customer, like many. However, all I feel I'm really missing is PDC/ADC. I'm one of those "digital as tape" people, for the most part, mixing and summing a hybrid of ITB and OTB. I make adjustments. I don't consider myself a hobbyist and I don't feel too much of a need for any of their other software features ...for now.

But maybe they might re-evaluate the range of software for the 003.

this link...

http://www.digidesign.com/index.cfm?...51&itemid=5027

....had 003 in the heading at the top of the page. since when does LE have surround?!?!Now i know its gone & maybe it was all a sick joke, but i saw with my own eyes!
& since they have made modified versions of PT (M-Powered) why not modifiy the software towards the higher end of the spectrum (native based still, but with ADC & surround)
Otherwise i wouldnt be suprised if the 003 WAS THE EXACT SAME as the 002 except for 8 mic pres instead of 4, slightly better converters/clock, wordclock & maybe a better headphone amp.

we'll your just on the other side of the fence.

these are my reasons why I'd be interested in a 003, HDLE, or whatever improved mid level thing they introduce:

- for my tracking room I want to continue running protools, because I like it.
- HD is WAY to expensive for me at the moment, I won't invest in it now.
- if it has 24 or more inputs, then that will suffice for me, hopefully mostly adat.
- a native solution is fine, I need relatively little DSP power in a tracking situation.
- The alternative is buying another old mix system with 24I/O which will set me 3-5k
- I've used LE in the tracking room, the only limitation that bugged me was 32 tracks

quite simple.

every user of PTLE knows there are other DAW products out there that can arguably do more and limit the user less. It's a simple choice to use the world standard and take digidesign's crap with it. I like ProTools, I don't know anymore whether I can say the same about digidesign, it highly depends on what new sub HD level products they introduce.

Well, just got a hold of some of the specs that were briefly posted on Digi's site the other day.

Lookin' good! My prayers have been answered:

16 channels of analog I/O alongside 16 channels of ADAT w/ s/mux!!!!

Also, it looks like it will cost around $4000...More than what I paid for an HD card not too long ago...I'm sure there will be upgrade paths for 002 users, tho.

Looks like Digidesign is realizing the power of native these days.

If that's real, it's defenately gonna stirr up some things

Who's your source btw? I guess you didn't see those specs on their website yourself?

if it's going to be that expensive then I wonder if they will even discontinue the 002 series, it sounds like there might still be a market for it.

but we know digi, they love to make their product tiers as far apart as possible.

well that might do it for me.

It's about the same price I'd pay for a mix system with 32I/O

advantage of the 003 would be that I can use current software versions.
disadvantage... no tdm plugs or complimentary DSP.

but for my tracking room... not really a deal breaker.

The number of I/O also implicates it wouldn't run ProTools LE as we know it today.

Let's hope they make a decent full blown native PT version with plenty I/O, near unlimited tracks, and full delay compensation.

No DSP is no issue, computers are way fast enough to run plenty plugins. And tons of plugins are available in native format.
