Version 11 brings massive speed and performance enhancements, plus a wealth of new functionality:
Pro Tools 11 from Avid is a brand new version of the industry standard DAW for both music/audio recording and post-production upgraded with a powerful new 64-bit architecture and a load of new features:
Everything you need to compose, record, edit, and mix professional music and audio post production.
- Avid Audio 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 (Pro Tools HD 11 only)
- UI Improvements/Retina Support
- Mixing Workflow Enhancements
- Automation While Recording
- Satellite Link/Video Satellite LE included (Pro Tools HD 11 only)
The new 64 bit architecture and rebuilt engines offer multiple times the processing power of Pro Tools 10, allowing you to handle huge sessions and gain more memory headroom to go even bigger. There's no longer any need to mix down your recordings in real time thanks to offline bounce, and the new low latency buffer (with dedicated input and playback buffers) means there's no need to compromise on plug-in use.
You can now playback and edit HD video in Pro Tools itself thanks to the new Avid Video Engine.
The DAW that changed it all gets a major reworking with an improved audio engine and improved workflow.
It would almost be easier to list the pro studios that don't use Pro Tools than those that do. That's not likely to change any time soon with improvements that make Pro Tools even more of a power house DAW.
Break the sound barrier with the all-new Avid Audio Engine
With the fully optimized Avid Audio Engine, you get multiple times the processing power of Pro Tools 10 on the same hardware configurations. So go ahead—pile on epic numbers of virtual instruments and effects to create richer sounding, more complex mixes and experience performance like never before with the most powerful audio workstation available.
Turbocharge sessions with 64-bit performance
With much more accessible RAM to boost performance, you can creatively take your music and audio production to a whole new level. Handle bigger mixes with thousands of clips. Take advantage of larger VI sampler sizes to attain more realistic-sounding instrument sounds. And enjoy more system headroom to push things even further, without straining your system.
Speed up delivery with offline bounce
Wait no longer... With faster-than-real-time offline bounce, you can speed up your final mix or stem deliveries—at up to 150x faster—and get the high-quality results you’d expect only from Pro Tools, thanks to time-stamped automation. If you mix and deliver radio programs or other long-format shows, this feature alone will save you hours of time—daily.
Get ultra-low latency with a dedicated input buffer
With dedicated low-latency input and playback buffers, you can monitor record inputs on native systems with ultra-low latency—without sacrificing plug-in performance. Even with large, plug-in-heavy sessions, you get the responsiveness you need to record your best performance.
Play and edit HD video with the new Avid Video Engine
With the built-in Avid Video Engine—the same core engine as in Media Composer—you can add, edit, and play a variety of HD video formats (such as QuickTime, XDCAM, and more) and Avid DNxHD sequences directly in the Pro Tools timeline—without transcoding. Plus, you can monitor the picture playback using video interfaces from Avid, AJA, and Blackmagic Design.
