Collaborate in the cloud—just added
Imagine being able to work on a session with friends, colleagues, or your favorite artist or producer with ease—no matter where they are in the world. You can with Avid Cloud Collaboration for Pro Tools. Record, edit, and mix projects with others as if you’re all working together in the same studio. And find new collaborators through the online Avid Artist Community.
Get Track Freeze, Commit, and Bounce—just added
Processor-hungry virtual instruments can impact system performance. And sharing sessions used to require that everyone have the same plug-ins. No more. With Track Freeze, you can quickly freeze or unfreeze all plug-ins on a track—or just up to a certain insert—to free up processing power. Track Commit is similar except it renders the track (or an edit selection) permanently. And with Track Bounce, you can render out stems for fast and easy file delivery.
Position clips more precisely with clip transparency—just added
If you’re a sound editor or designer, precision and speed are paramount when it comes to aligning and editing clips. Now clips take on a translucent appearance whenever you move and overlap one over another, giving you better visual clarity of their context. This enables you to quickly align the waveforms of a new audio clip to the visual cues of an existing one’s waveforms with much better precision and ease.
Save time with batch fades—just added
Fading tracks is one of the fundamentals of audio editing. But it can be tedious and time consuming when editing thousands of audio clips. With new fade enhancements, you can speed through repetitious tasks and gain more time to focus on the creative aspects of your mix. Create and tweak presets for fade ins, fade outs, crossfades, and batch fades. Recall presets directly from your keyboard or control surface. And control fade settings independently when working with batch fades.
Access upgrades, bonus plug-ins, and more
Get access to all new Pro Tools releases, expert help, and a bonus collection of plug-ins with a Pro Tools subscription. With a new perpetual license purchase, you get access to all new releases and bonus plug-ins included for one year. Then renew your Annual Upgrade Plan for $99/year to stay current, and maintain your plug-in access with the Plug-in and Support Plan for $99/year.

With Space, a high-quality convolution reverb plug-in, you can create natural sounding environments to give your mix more atmosphere—from small rooms to the largest concert halls. Simply access this bonus plug-in (a $499 value) through your Pro Tools subscription or Annual Plug-in and Support Plan.
Crank up amazing tones and effects

And get reverb, delay, and other vintage sounds. They’re not just for guitars—you can use these plug-ins to enhance any type of track.

Tracking vocals and instrument performances is now faster and easier than ever. Rehearse and record more easily with track input monitoring. Dial in cue mixes in a snap by copying fader settings to sends. And solo tracks in PFL (pre-fader listen) or AFL (after-fader listen) mode for optimal recording.
Take control with your iPad
