In this month's column, we give you the low-down on the wealth of new features coming your way in the version 7.3 updates to Pro Tools TDM and LE .

The new version 7.3 upgrade to Pro Tools is available on-line as a download, or you can buy the installation software on a DVD if you prefer not to have to download 100MB or so of files. The 7.3 upgrade can be obtained at a reduced price if you already have 7.2 HD or 7.1 LE. The boxed version includes all the other installers and extra stuff that doesn't come with the downloadable version. There's also an HD -only 7.3 update pack available through dealers, and this includes a hard copy of the printed Reference Guide. Go to www.avidstore.com/uk/index.cfm? or contact your dealer in the normal way.

Having bought the upgrades and received the iLok assets for the HD version or a serial number for the LE version, you need to check that your operating system is compatible with Pro Tools 7.3. Macs need to be running OS 10.4.8. For Windows, things haven't changed so much, so XP should be OK, especially if you have Service Pack 2 installed. Remember that neither XP Media Centre Edition or XP Professional x64 editions are approved by Digidesign. As to Vista, Digidesign have announced they are working on it but as yet no date for this has been announced.

I only had to update my Mac from 10.4.6 to 10.4.8, which I did with the 'Combi' updater from Apple, as recommended by Digidesign, but that triggered a whole load of other security updaters, each of which required a restart, not to mention Quicktime 7.1.3 and the latest version of iTunes. so it was not a trivial business.

Digidesign advise you to check that all your plug-ins are compatible with version 7.3, but this turned out not to be that simple. Although there is a stage in the installer that is supposed to check for compatible plug-ins, it doesn't seem to be infallible, so you need to visit the compatibility information on the Digidesign web site at www.digidesign.com/index.cfm?langid=51&amp ;navid=71&itemid=4767&action=news_details. This page shows the recommended versions of plug-ins for the various versions of Pro Tools on both Mac and Windows. However, the information on this page is dependent on third-party developers providing facts to Digidesign, and I found a number of discrepancies. For example, the page quotes versions of Eventide plug-ins that aren't available even from Eventide's own site.

The long and the short of it is that I spent an evening trawling for and downloading new versions of plug-ins to try and make sure I didn't have any problems. Why did I go to all this trouble? Because Digidesign say that even one incompatible plug-in will make your lovely new system unstable. I just wish there was an easier way of knowing that you have the latest versions of the plug-ins.

One other point is that the Digidesign EQ II or Dynamics II plug-ins are now installed by default into the Plug-ins (unused) folder, which you will find next to your Plug-ins folder. If you need them to open an older Session, simply drag them back into your Plug-ins folder, with Pro Tools not running, and when you next run Pro Tools they will be back.

Version 7.3 has brought a raft of improvements to both HD and LE versions, and also adds a number of previously HD -only options introduced with 7.2 to 7.3 LE. Let's take a tour, starting with the features that are new in both HD and LE .

At last Pro Tools has what so many other software packages have: an Open Recent menu option. This menu stores the 10 most recently opened sessions and you don't even need to close the existing Session to use it, though you still can't have more than one Session open at a time, so Pro Tools will close the current Session before opening the next one. Finally, there is a keyboard shortcut to open the most recently used Session: Command+Shift+O (Mac) or Ctrl+Shift+O (Windows).
