Our friend Tim points us to this ad, apparently in EQ Magazine, in which Digidesign promises version 7 of Pro Tools HD on October 7. (Notice it specifies HD, not LE, in the ad; LE and M-Powered are likely to lag a little.) This isn’t any huge surprise — if nothing else, Digi has run out of numbers following the release of Pro Tools 6.9. More on this story as it comes in. Image of the ad after the break.

Personally, I’m excited that October 7 is also the US release date of the new Wallace & Gromit movie.
