Avid Technology, the parent company for such brands as Digidesign, M-Audio and Sibelius, has announced that the brand names will soon be going away. Everything will be rebranded as Avid. Digidesign will be the first to go, with M-Audio and Sibelius following suit soon after.
Avid Technology sent a letter to all Pro Tools users in April explaining this, as well as moving the Digidesign.com information to the main Avid website. They assure, however, that the same staff, products and quality will remain in tact.

UPDATE – After a successful install, my major programs continued to work: Cubase 5, Sibelius 6, Final Cut Express 4. Presonus is offering a Beta driver for Firestudio and StudioLive. Sibelius issued an upgrade to 6.03 for Mac users only. Cubase 5 works, but is very sluggish (VU Meters, etc.) The main things that didn’t work for me were Safari and Mail plugins (Glims, WideMail, GrowlMail, etc.).
The new OS from Apple is coming out tomorrow: Snow Leopard OS X 10.6. I’m pretty excited and can’t wait to upgrade. There’s a lot of under-the-hood changes made in this version – 64 bit processing for core applications, improved iChat video resolution with lower bandwidth usage, Finder and Exposé improvements, just to name a few.
But if you use any audio or video software or hardware, you may want to wait a bit before upgrading. Apple has compiled a list of software that currently isn’t working with 10.6, and end-users are also compiling their own list.
