Get easy access to the audio industry's most trusted tool
The latest version of Pro Tools is now more easily and affordably accessible than ever. In addition to the software being available to own and upgrade as before, you can now subscribe to Pro Tools software on a low-cost monthly or annual basis, enabling you to pay only for the software when you need it. And youâ€™ll always have access to the latest updates, upgrades, and support through the included Avid upgrade and support plan. Plus, when updates are available, you can get them delivered to you straight from the cloud.
Stay current, stay ahead
All Pro Tools purchases, upgrades, and subscriptions now come with an Avid upgrade and support plan that ensures you always have the latest features at your fingertips. This means that you'll get all future software updates and upgrades (as long as your plan is active), including the upcoming Pro Tools Cloud and other features mentioned below, and 24x7 access to our Customer Care team experts to get help and advice whenever, wherever, and however you need it.
Collaborate in the cloud (coming soon)
Imagine being able to work on a session with friends, bandmates, colleagues, or even your favorite artist, producer, editor, or voice actorâ€”no matter where they are, anywhere in the world. Thatâ€™s whatâ€™s coming with Avid Cloud Collaboration for Pro Tools, a groundbreaking new set of features that will enable you to compose, record, edit, and mix sessions collaboratively with other Pro Tools users as if youâ€™re all working together in the same studio. Simply invite any of your available connections to collaborate using built-in chat, or find new collaborators through the online Artist Community, part of the Avid Marketplace.
Connect in the Avid Marketplace (coming soon)
Gain the exposure you need to promote and sell your work. With the Artist Community, part of the upcoming Avid Marketplace, you'll be able to publish session files, multichannel stems, and stereo mixdowns directly from Pro Tools for license in the public marketplace. Unlike social music sites that simply allow you to share and promote your music, the Avid Marketplace is designed to help you forge more meaningful connections with the audio community, enabling you to connect with other media professionals to share, collaborate, promote, and sell your work - publicly or privately. This puts the power in your hands to make connections and create new opportunities.
Access your work anywhere (coming soon)
Forget about having to comb through multiple hard drives to find past projects that you want to remix, repurpose, or remaster. With our upcoming audio archival service, youâ€™ll be able to store content and track it, whether you store a session locally or in the cloud. Archive a stereo mix, the full session, individual stems, or even flatten all tracks so that the original plug-ins used to create them arenâ€™t required. And with our new cloud storage service, youâ€™ll be able to house and access archived sessions and files - plus all sessions, stems, and stereo mixes you make available in the Marketplace - securely from anywhere.
Manage and track your assets (coming soon)
Weâ€™ll be introducing and integrating a new open, universal metadata schema into Pro Tools that will help you manage, track, and document every asset and project you create. This metadata will enable media creators and distributors to keep track of everyone who creatively contributed to a piece of content, making it easy to document who did what, when, and where; manage and control versioning; and provide accurate credit information so that you have a better chance of getting paid for your work - and getting hired for future projects.
Experience more power and performance
With the redesigned Avid Audio Engine and 64-bit performance, you get multiple times the processing power of previous versions of Pro Tools on the same hardware configurations. Add epic numbers of virtual instruments and effects to create bigger, richer sounding, and more complex mixes.
Loop and punch your way to perfection
Nobody's perfect, but with Pro Tools you can create a seamless performance from multiple takes. Let your spontaneity shine with Loop recording and comp together your best takes. Or use QuickPunch to quickly replace any questionable section with a better performance.
No instrument? No problem.
Easily create parts for practically any musical instrument using great-sounding virtual instruments, a MIDI keyboard/controller or your mouse, and the built-in Pro Tools MIDI Editor. Get started fast with the included virtual instruments and audio loops, and expand your arsenal with AAX virtual instruments from Avid and third-party audio designers.
Compose with full MIDI and notation tools
Take your songwriting from sketchpad to final production. Create and edit virtual instrument and MIDI performances with the MIDI Editor. Or compose music using notation tools in the built-in Sibelius Score Editor. You can even export sessions as Sibelius (.sib) files for further finessing in Sibelius.
Work and collaborate on projects from other apps
Collaboration has never been easier. With Pro Tools, you can exchange sessions with any Pro Tools user or studio. Or work on projects created in other audio and video software - including Media Composer, Logic, Cubase, and other third-party apps - right in Pro Tools.
