If you’re a Pro Tools user, then you likely received an email from Digidesign explaining that they’re moving forward with the “re-branding” of Digidesign. They’ve decided to nix the name entirely, using just the name of the parent company (Avid), and the ever-popular name of the software itself, Pro Tools.
So…I guess it will be Avid Pro Tools from here on out…or most likely everyone will call it Pro Tools just like they always have.
Why comment on this? Well, I for one don’t really care if Digi changes their name. It doesn’t really affect my day-to-day life. However, if you’re contemplating Pro Tools, you might get confused when doing your research.
I’m sure some dummies out there will speculate that Pro Tools is going away forever. That’s nonsense. They’re just getting a face-lift apparently.
