Pro Tools 11 from Avid: Everything You Want To Know [VIDEO - 45 mins!]
"Next level sh**!"
"Where's me chequebook? Sold!"
"When can we have it?!
But if Avid's official video whet your appetite for a more substantial and in-depth look at just what was getting them so excited, you're in luck. The guys from Pro Tools Expert, Russ Hughes and Mike Thornton, say they've had to "sign in blood" to get an incredibly detailed pre-release look at Pro Tools 11 and Pro Tools HD 11. If you can't make it to Musikmesse in Frankfurt this week, this 45 minute video is the next best thing to popping along to Avid's stand and seeing it in the flesh yourself.
They do a great job in particular of explaining just what the new 64 bit architecture is all about, comparing it to upgrading from Mac OS 9 back in 2001 to OS X (or re-building the foundations of a house, for the less technical amongst us)! They also discuss the new releases other additions and features, like:
- Avid Audio Engine (instead of the old Digidesign engine)
- Optimized Host Processing for AAX
- VI & Plug-In performance boost
- Offline Bounce
- Low Latency Buffer mode
- New integrated Avid Video Engine
- Redesigned Workspace
- Extended Metering
- UI Improvements/Retina Support
- Mixing Workflow Enhancements
- Automation While Recording
And don't miss the new Avid Fast Track USB audio interfaces (Solo and Duo). Why cobble together your own solution from disparate software and hardware, when Avid provide a fully integrated system of software, hardware and drivers built to work together flawlessly?
