Many thanks

Are you on a Mac or PC? Sounds like a re-install is in order. On Mac,
the mixer plug-in should be located at Library->Application Support->Digidesign->Plug-Ins. You should see both the dithering and non-dithering
mixer engines there.

Check the HD setup guide.....

Switching Mixer Plug-Ins
To switch TDM Mixer plug-ins:
1 Quit Pro Tools.

2 Do one of the following:
• On Windows systems, open the “Plug-Ins
(Unused)” folder (Program Files\
Common Files\Digidesign\DAE).
– or –
• On Macintosh systems, open the “Plug-Ins
(Unused)” folder on your Startup drive
(Library/Application Support/Digidesign).

3 Locate the Mixer plug-in that you want to use,
and drag it to the Plug-Ins folder.

4 Open the “Plug-Ins” folder, locate the Mixer
plug-in version that you no longer want to use,
and drag it to the “Plug-Ins (Unused)” folder.

5 Launch Pro Tools.
