Today, anyone can create music at home, on their laptops, or on smartphones. But while low-cost recording tools have opened the gates to music creation and recording, it’s made it that much harder for professional and aspiring musicians, artists, engineers, mixers, songwriters, and producers to stand out from the crowd.

You need the best tools available to make your music come to life. That’s why nearly every top artist and audio professional uses Avid to create the most popular, most acclaimed albums, songs, and soundtracks.

Avid Solutions Give Monkeyland Audio Unparalleled Production Facilities

We loved the fact that [the Pro Tools | S6] can expand and quickly reconfigure to meet the requirements of different mixers. We really wanted a state-of-the-art, high-end new room for our new Atmos stage. It was a no-brainer it was going to be the S6.

Yaron Fuchs and the Process of Collaboration

Collaboration really helped us with the workflow. We’re capable of doing pre-production here and putting it up in the cloud. Anybody with an idea can just plug in a microphone, plug in a guitar and just lace it in. I think it’s a game changer.

Jintae Ko: Turning Music into Magic with Pro Tools

Pro Tools is the mothership of all digital audio workstations, because I can hear every detail, and manipulate other ingredients, like loops, and build upon that to get great ideas.
