How do I access beta drivers?

Release Date: April 13, 2012

Version: 6.1.7

Applies To:
Fast Track


Operating Systems Supported:
Windows 7 SP1 (32-Bit & 64-Bit)

Release Notes:

Enabled ProTools private ASIO future calls in the public ASIO driver. This will enable future versions of Pro Tools to use the public ASIO driver, and will allow Avid to eventually eliminate the private, PACE-wrapped ASIO driver. This change should have no effect on current Pro Tools products or other ASIO hosts.

Fixed: iTunes would stop working after 5 mins of standby

Fixed: Fast Track / Mbox Mini - before device is ever plugged in, device will show pull down menu instead of slider.

Fixed: issue where firmware version was shown as "0.10.1", where it should be "1.0.1".

Fixed: Panel issue where text could be truncated under high-DPI display settings on Windows.

Fixed: Blue screen that could occur when unplugging the device during streaming.

Updates to improve stability/reliability of streaming driver.

When using Fast Track as the default Windows playback device, the driver now can use the system APOs (Vista and Win7 only). See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Technic...nal_processing for an overview of available processing.

Improvements to the way in which latencies are reported to clients.

Updates to intelligently shorten the device name.

Updated Streaming service name to match old driver package (6.0.X) which fixes install failures on systems that have had the old driver installed
