Digidesign has announced that the DV Toolkit 2 option for Pro Tools LE systems is now shipping. Building on the popular DV Toolkit, DV Toolkit 2 provides an even larger collection of tools for producing high-end sound for film or video.
DV Toolkit 2 is a solution for users who want access to many of the post production features of Pro Tools|HD, but in a smaller, more portable solution. Paired with a ProTools LE system, DV Toolkit 2 provides a cost-effective entry to the world of sound for film. DV Toolkit 2 includes three powerful plug-ins that are ideal for working with sound for picture: the TL Space Native Edition convolution reverb, DINR LE intelligent noise reduction tool, and the Synchro Arts VocALign Project for Pro Tools time-alignment tool.
It adds the DigiBase Pro file management tool for working with the large number of files and volumes on post projects, the DigiTranslator 2.0 option for importing and exporting projects to and from video editing applications, such as Avid Xpress software, and the Pro Tools MP3 Option for exporting mixes as MP3 files.

With DV Toolkit 2, users can expand Pro Tools sessions to up to 48 mono or stereo tracks at up to 96 kHz for accommodating larger, more complex post production projects. In addition, DV Toolkit 2 adds a wide selection of post-specific Pro Tools functions, many of which were previously available only with Pro Tools HD software, including: DigiBase Pro, "Replace Region" and "Fit to Marks" commands, Scrub Trim tool, Export Session as Text, Continuous Scroll mode, Universe window, Automation snapshots, and Enhanced Import Session Data features.
The MSRP of the DV Toolkit 2 is $1,295 US. Owners of the original DV Toolkit option can upgrade to DV Toolkit 2 through the online DigiStore for $295.
