where02190 Posted April 23, 2004 Share Posted April 23, 2004 As of the release of PT6.4, Digidesign has announced they will no longer release updates for the 001, forcing thousands of 001 owners into shelling out $700 to "exchange" their 001 for the 002R, and if they have not already, purchase OSX Panther ($129) as well as upgrade their plugins (potentially thousands of $$$) as well as upgrade their computers to run OSX Panther. The 002r, while an improvement in converters and preamps, leaves alot ot be desired. There are numourous complaints of the pre's being too hot to handle many mics, with no pad switch. The +48 switch, along with the +4/-10db selector switch is ON THE BACK of the rackounted unit. This Protools user will certainly be looking elseware for new hardware and software when we fel we must upgrade our current 001 set-up. I suspect many others will follow suite. IMHO this is a very bad marketing move for Digi. Hope this is helpful. NP Recording Studios Analog approach to digital recording. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
