Get Track Freeze, Commit, and Bounce—just added
Processor-hungry virtual instruments can impact system performance with plug-in-heavy mixes. And sharing sessions used to require that everyone all have the same plug-ins used in the session. But no more. With Track Freeze, you can quickly freeze an entire audio, instrument, or auxiliary track to free up processing power. It also makes sharing sessions easy, as it eliminates requiring plug-in parity. You can freeze all plug-ins on the track, or just up to a certain insert. And if further editing is needed, simply unfreeze the track with the click of a button. Track Commit is similar except it renders the track (or an edit selection) permanently, with a variety of flexible options available, making it ideal when prepping for a mix or for archiving sessions. And with Track Bounce, you can render out stems, making file delivery super fast and easy.
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 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 mixing. 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 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.
Get the ultimate mixing experience
Work with even more advanced tools right in Pro Tools. Mix and control groups of tracks faster and easier with VCA Masters. Mix with confidence using 17 advanced metering options, including K-system, VU, and other professional standards. Get gain reduction metering on every channel to gauge dynamics. And get smoother performance and highly responsive recording and playback with the extended Disk Cache feature, which loads entire sessions into RAM—no matter how large.Plus, with the built-in Avid Marketplace, you can browse, buy, and install plug-ins directly from within Pro Tools—without restarting your software.
Take control of your session with an iPad
With support for our free new Pro Tools | Control iOS app, you can wirelessly control Pro Tools and other EUCON-enabled audio and video software, freeing you from being tethered to your workstation. Because Pro Tools tightly integrates with the app, you can record and mix faster and easier than working with a mouse and keyboard alone. And we’ll say it again—it’s free!
Collaborate in the cloud—just added
