I don't have the money to upgrade, so I've stuck with my G5 OSX 10.4.11 and stupidly changed the home tad name and somehow lost my upgrade to ProTools 7.4 which was a download direct from Degidesign back in the day. I've looked everywhere and can't seem to locate PT 7.4 - which was nice since in included the feature of having the ability to colorize the full track/channel in the mix window, rather than just the little color tabs at the bottom. Which if I remember correctly, just required clicking on the color tab, keeping the mouse clicked and moving it upward to intensify the color in the track/channel.

Anyone know how to get my PT 7.4 back. Or, was the colorizing the channels/tracks a feature of 7.3??? If so, how do you make the channel/track colorize beyond the simple colored tab at the bottom/top of each track? Does the color box selector have to be open?

Anyway, help is kindly appreciated.....
