Learn how the Avid Artist Suite addresses your needs:

+-Take on the most demanding sessions with power and flexibility

In today’s demanding post-production environments, audio sessions are larger and more complex than ever. In order to handle projects that contain thousands of clips, hundreds of surround sound channels, heavy automation, and an army of system-intensive plug-ins, you need a DAW that provides powerful and reliable performance.

Pro Tools | Software

The top post professionals in the industry use Pro Tools | Software to deliver award-winning TV shows and films. From all-new audio and video engines and turbocharged 64-bit performance, to expanded metering and new HD video workflows, Pro Tools | Software enables you to take on the most demanding sessions and deliver the highest-quality audio.

Work with HD video directly in Pro Tools

Pro Tools | Software features the powerful built-in Avid Video Engine—the same core engine that’s in Media Composer | Software.

This enables you to incorporate a variety of HD video formats and Avid DNxHD sequences directly in the Pro Tools timeline—without transcoding—so you can create, edit, and/or mix dialog, sound, and music to the picture. Plus, you can output the picture to external HD monitors using video interfaces from Avid, AJA, and Blackmagic Design.

Handle the most demanding productions with hardware acceleration

Pro Tools | HDX is the most powerful DAW in the world, delivering unprecedented DSP-accelerated power, maximum audio quality, and the easiest workflow for handling large-scale, complex productions. Mix up to 768 audio tracks in full surround sound, experience exceptional headroom, and get up to 5x more dedicated DSP power than previous Pro Tools | HD systems. Pro Tools | HDX gives you the power and flexibility to tackle massive soundtracks with confidence.

Create with the most powerful host-based DAW

Pro Tools | HD Native enables you to compose, record, edit, and mix your productions with unprecedented speed and ease—at a price that won’t break your budget. Pro Tools | HD Native offers all the features of Pro Tools | HD Software in a host-based environment, providing pristine sound, incredible performance and reliability, and exceptionally low latency—with up to 256 tracks.

+-Get precision control and complete mixes faster

When you combine your Pro Tools rig with an Avid control surface, you have access to hands-on control of track volume, panning, plug-ins, transport, and other vital operations. Manipulate multiple controls simultaneously, get rich visual feedback to monitor every aspect of your session, fine-tune automation, and improve the quality of your mixes at much greater speeds than mixing with a mouse and keyboard.

  • Pro Tools | S6—Mix the way you want with the first-ever professional scalable, modular control surface for post production
  • System 5—Tackle the biggest feature films and TV shows with built-in DSP and EUCON control, plus the scalability to accommodate multiple operators
  • S5 Fusion—Get built-in DSP and EUCON control in a smaller-format digital console
  • C|24—Control Pro Tools with a 24-channel surface and integrated analog I/O for music and post
  • Artist Series—Take hands-on control of your favorite EUCON-enabled audio software with compact and portable surfaces
+-Build, customize, and grow your ideal mixing desk

To deliver the highest-quality mixes, you need a hardware solution that frees you from technical distraction, enabling you to focus on the mix and make better creative decisions. Leveraging the best of the industry-leading ICON and System 5 product families in a revolutionary new modular design, the Pro Tools | S6 control surface delivers superior ergonomics and intelligent EUCON studio control, providing an intuitive, immersive experience for post-production sound mixing.

  • Scale and customize the surface for your needs now and in the future
  • Control multiple Pro Tools, Logic, Cubase, and other third-party DAWs for greater project versatility with EUCON support
  • Control up to eight DAWs remotely, no matter where they’re located in the facility with networked connectivity
  • See what audio clips are coming up using the Pro Tools waveform view
+-Deliver Dolby Atmos mixes with incredible precision

Dolby Atmos is quickly becoming the next big thing for filmmakers, and provides the most immersive audio experience yet for moviegoers. Audio post professionals need an easy way to integrate this new technology into their projects without changing workflows or disrupting the production schedule.

System 5 represents the pinnacle of digital audio console design, and gives you the ability to mix the biggest Dolby Atmos mixes with total precision. System 5 offers powerful integrated DSP, and the most comprehensive Pro Tools | Software control than any other console—so you can mix 128 discrete audio tracks and 64 unique speaker feeds that Dolby Atmos mixes support.

+-Create ADR and Foley that enhance every onscreen moment
A high-quality soundtrack—including well-produced ADR, Foley, sound effects, and music—can take film and TV projects to a higher level. Pro Tools offers the streamlined workflows to help you easily record dialogue replacement and Foley footsteps efficiently. It also offers a wide variety of audio effects, sound-processing plug-ins, and automation capabilities that can help you match ADR and Foley recordings to picture, to "futz" dialogue for speaker or phone emulations, and/or clean up production sound when needed. With a wide range of AAX plug-ins available for both native and DSP-accelerated Pro Tools systems, you have endless potential for creating soundtracks that help tell the story on screen better.
+-Collaborate with others to create your best work
In the post world, seamless collaboration is essential. To create your best work and reduce operational costs, you need to work closely with others and quickly incorporate fixes, revisions, and alternate takes into sessions.

To allow post professionals to work together more efficiently, we’re working to add new cloud-based collaboration functionality to Pro Tools | Software.

You’ll be able to access and share the same sessions, review sessions from everywhere using a mobile device, and easily bring revised material into your sessions via the cloud.

See our Avid Everywhere for audio technology preview
+-Mix sound for picture with powerful video creative tools
In order to streamline the post-production process and accelerate your workflow, your audio solution needs to integrate well with the video editorial department. Avid’s industry-leading Media Composer | Software offers great interoperability with Pro Tools | Software, enabling you to share media quickly. In addition to Pro Tools users being able to play and edit HD video directly in the Pro Tools timeline, Media Composer editors can send a video mixdown of the latest cuts, enabling you to import video directly into your Pro Tools timeline for ADR, editing, sound design and mixing. Or greatly accelerate efficiency with the Video Satellite option, which enables you to work directly with raw Media Composer sequences, eliminating the need for video editors to render or transcode files, and maintain the full audio track count and processing power of Pro Tools.

Manage, protect, and track an increasing mass of media

The size and complexity of projects and sessions are growing at an exponential rate, making it ever more difficult to manage, protect, and track assets. That’s why robust media management and rich metadata are critical.

Avid’s cutting-edge media management solutions can make your life in the studio easier than ever by enabling you to work more efficiently and handle massive amounts of audio assets.

Learn how the Avid Media Suite addresses your needs:

+-Accelerate workflows and enhance collaboration

In recent years, the complexity and size of audio sessions have skyrocketed. In order to tackle massive projects and deliver the highest-quality audio, you need advanced media management systems that speed up your workflow and enhance collaboration.

Interplay | Production manages and coordinates content creation, automates workflows, and empowers all contributors across the production and editorial ecosystem to easily work in parallel and complete projects faster. Running on the Avid MediaCentral Platform, Interplay | Production—in conjunction with MediaCentral | UX (formerly Interplay Central)—enables all contributors to access and edit projects and media using a desktop computer, laptop, or iOS device. For audio post pros, you can access and share production audio files, sound effects, Foley, voiceovers, ADR, music, and other media across a centralized media management platform, enabling parallel audio/video team collaboration for the utmost efficiency.

+-Track every asset and project using a powerful metadata schema
As part of the Avid Everywhere audio technology vision, we will integrate a universal open metadata schema into Pro Tools | Software that will enable you to document and track every asset and project created in the industry-standard DAW. Our metadata strategy is based on current industry standards and will extend throughout every phase of the media value chain, ensuring that nothing gets lost in transition or translation.

To handle massive amounts of digital assets and share them between teams, post-production facilities need efficient, high-capacity storage solutions that streamline and accelerate the creation and production processes.

Avid ISIS shared storage systems provide unparalleled performance, security, and ease of use, so your facility can enhance collaboration and operate more efficiently. ISIS systems tightly integrate with Avid media asset management, audio post, and video post solutions for a completely optimized, end-to-end workflow.

+-Easily share content with everyone on your team

ISIS shared storage systems provide unparalleled flexibility to handle massive amounts of digital assets. By enabling everyone in the picture and sound departments to access content simultaneously—including the latest picture edits, sound effects, and music—you can speed up workflows and get more done in less time.

+-Scale your storage to accommodate project changes
ISIS systems provide high-capacity storage, powerful performance, and scalability to handle whatever project comes your way. With its efficient, linear bandwidth scaling, ISIS makes it easy to expand the system, while sustaining real-time performance.
