Whether you want to record acoustic instruments, build electronic beats, sequence compositions with a MIDI controller, or even edit sound for HD video, Pro Tools 11 software can help you do it all. Avid Pro Tools 11 for Mac or PC is the music-production software that grows with you -- whether you're recording demos at home, or you're a fully fledged production studio.
New in PT11: The Avid Audio Engine and Offline BounceWith the updated Avid Audio Engine, Pro Tools 11 offers a noticeable performance upgrade, as long as you're on a 64-bit computer with a current operating system. Record more tracks, run more plug-ins, and play more virtual instruments! Build bigger, more complex sessions than ever. That ultra-efficient processing will come in handy as you're bouncing your audio mixes to disk at blazingly fast speeds -- with Pro Tools 11's lightning-fast Offline Bounce function.
Play and Edit HD Video Right in the TimelineDoing audio postproduction for video? Need to trim a video clip? Forget opening up some other software or calling in a video editor -- Pro Tools 11 lets you edit a wide range of HD video formats directly in the Pro Tools timeline. Even if editing video isn't your thing, this function will come in handy when you're scoring for film or commercials.
Key Returning Features from Pro Tools 10Avid's Pro Tools 10 release pushed boundaries with support for 32-bit floating-point file formats, the Clip Gain feature for easy volume tweaking of individual regions, four times the Automatic Delay Compensation of previous releases, twice as many busses, and the cool Avid Channel Strip plug-in loaded with EQ and compressor models. All these sweet features are back in PT11 -- and they're more efficient than ever with the Avid Audio Engine.
Comp Together Perfect PerformancesWith features like Loop recording, QuickPunch, Pro Tools has always been a super-powerful multitrack audio recorder and editor. What's more, Pro Tools gives you Elastic Time and Elastic Pitch tools, as well as Beat Detective for fixing timing issues. Playlists let you audition multiple takes and comp together your best performances. And Clip Gain means you can match levels between takes without tediously drawing in automation moves.
Pro Tools for BeginnersPro Tools 11 may be the industry-standard software used in professional studios -- but it's plenty accessible for those just starting to record at home. When loaded on your machine, Pro Tools' Mix window will simulate a studio mixing board, and the Edit window is a multitrack tape machine. You can load your own virtual instruments, MIDI tracks, or pre-recorded audio files. Add a hardware audio interface, and you can input and mix live audio feeds like a real recording studio -- all from the comfort of your own home.
Record 32 Tracks; Mix Over 100 TracksWith Pro Tools 11, you control virtually the same software your favorite artists use when recording in the studio -- but in your own home! The software can handle up to 32 active inputs simultaneously, at up to 192 kHz/32-bit resolution, with the appropriate Pro Tools-compatible hardware audio interface. When you're mixing, Pro Tools can handle over 100 tracks simultaneously.
Create Music with Just Your ComputerYou don't need an Avid interface to run Pro Tools 11 -- just the included iLok smart key. Plug in your headphones and maybe a MIDI controller, and you'll be on your way to creating music with just your computer. Pro Tools 11 comes with over 75 virtual instruments included, and most modern synthesizers and drum machines can run within Pro Tools as a virtual instrument. Pro Tools' MIDI Editor window gives you full MIDI sequencing and notation tools, so you can work the way you want to.
