Avid® has announced the release of the new version of Pro Tools®, its digital audio workstation. The software is now compatible with macOS Mojave.
It includes new features such as 50 percent more voices/audio tracks for users working in high track-count environments. In addition to this base voice limit increase to 384, Pro Tools | Ultimate software and HD Native users will be able to increase the number of available voices up to 768 per system—on par with a three-card Pro Tools | HDX system—with the addition of native Pro Tools | Ultimate Voice Packs. The ability to scale the number of voices in Pro Tools | Ultimate software enables a greater degree of flexibility and power to tackle the most demanding work and when working in tandem with high-powered HDX systems. Pro Tools 2019 also has “enhanced playback features” during playback such as inserting plugins, adding or deleting tracks, changing routing, adjusting loop duration and more.
Avid has also focused on newcomers and facilities and institutions. For Pro Tools | First users, they can create and save an unlimited number of projects locally. Furthermore, users can sync up to three projects to their complimentary cloud storage for easy access. For the second group, Avid has announced the immediate availability of Pro Tools Multiseat Network Site Licensing, which eliminates the need for a multitude of physical iLok dongles and cumbersome site management.
“Our goal was to deliver new features for every kind of user, whether they’re working in audio post production, or music creation, and whether they’re a Pro Tools | First user just starting out or a Pro Tools | Ultimate user at the peak of their career,” said Rob D’Amico, Director, Audio Solutions Marketing at Avid. “Every year, we continually deliver Pro Tools updates to subscribers throughout the year, giving them the capabilities they need to deliver their best possible sound and keep their creativity flowing.”
