NOTE: Customers who purchase the Pro Tools 10 software on or after April 7th 2013 will receive a free upgrade to Pro Tools 11.

Introducing Pro Tools 10, the next generation of the best sounding, most powerful audio production software for recording, composing, editing, and mixing music and sound for picture.

New features and workflows

Mix it up—at higher resolution
With Pro Tools 10, you can mix multiple audio file formats and bit depths within the same session—including interleaved—without any file duplication to cause project bloat. Plus, with support for 32-bit floating-point file formats, you’ll get higher resolution sound when recording or importing, with more headroom to preserve the integrity of your audio from beginning to end.

Drive faster—with better performance
Gain better recording and playback performance when working on a laptop with an external drive or a network-attached storage device. Speed up editing and mixing with Clip Gain. Work more easily with AudioSuite-rendered clips. Get 4x more* Automatic Delay Compensation and 2x more busses to handle bigger mixes with more plug-ins. And get snappier performance when working on sessions with lots of fades.

Plug into legendary sound
With the included Avid Channel Strip plug-in, you get the renowned channel strip of the Avid (formerly Euphonix) System 5, one of the most sought-after consoles used to create some of the greatest mixes ever produced. Work with exact replications of the console’s EQ and compression algorithms to add life to your mix.

Record and compose music and audio

Get top-quality sound and performance with Avid hardware
Whether you’re tracking vocals, guitars, or an orchestra, you’ll get the best possible sound and optimized performance when you pair Pro Tools with an Avid audio interface. Record high-resolution audio—up to 24-bit/192 kHz—and experience exceptionally low latency to capture your best performances easily.

Work the way you want
With Pro Tools, you have the flexibility to record, edit, and mix music and sound for picture your way. Pair the software with your favorite Avid or third-party audio interface to record and monitor vocal and instrument performances. Or record and create with just your computer** and the software alone for ultimate portability.

Loop and punch your way to perfection
Nobody’s perfect, but with Pro Tools you can create a seamless performance from multiple takes. Let your spontaneity shine with Loop recording and comp together your best takes. Or use QuickPunch to quickly replace any questionable section with a better performance.

No instrument? No problem.
Easily create parts for practically any musical instrument using great-sounding virtual instruments, a MIDI keyboard/controller or your mouse, and the built-in Pro Tools MIDI Editor. Get started fast with the included virtual instruments and audio loops, and expand your arsenal with virtual instruments from Avid and third-party audio designers.

Compose with full MIDI and notation tools
Take your songwriting from sketchpad to final production. Create and edit virtual instrument and MIDI performances with the MIDI Editor. Or compose music using notation tools in the built-in Sibelius Score Editor. You can even export sessions as Sibelius (.sib) files for further finessing in Sibelius.

Work and collaborate on projects from other apps
Collaboration has never been easier. With Pro Tools, you can exchange sessions with any Pro Tools user or studio. Or work on projects created in other audio and video software—including Media Composer, Logic, Cubase, and other third-party apps—right in Pro Tools.

Edit audio to perfection

Stretch your creativity with Elastic Time and Pitch
Freely experiment without the time or effort investment. With Elastic Time, you can change the tempo or timing of any clip or an entire composition—on the fly. And with Elastic Pitch, you can fix wrong notes, create harmonies, and transpose clips—in real time—without altering the tempo.

Edit with precision
Shape and fine-tune your music and audio with professional, sample-accurate editing tools. Create a flawless performance by comping together tracks.Speed up editing with the Smart Tool. And smooth transitions with crossfades. Everything you need to perfect your tracks is available right from within a single Edit window.

Snoop out grooves with multitrack Beat Detective
With the versatile Beat Detective tool, you can quickly fix timing issues across multiple tracks or change up the feel of a beat to get a different groove. You can even use it to keep your rhythm section “in the pocket” by extracting the groove from a drumbeat and applying it to the bass part.

Create and cut sound to picture
With Pro Tools, you can create, edit, and mix audio to picture using the built-in Timecode Ruler and video track. Use the included plug-ins to clean up sound. Create sound effects that define (or defy) reality. And record and edit voiceovers, Foley, and ADR with perfect frame accuracy. You can even share audio mixes with Media Composer editors through AAF.

Create great-sounding mixes

Get the sound you want
Polish mixes with over 70 included effects, sound-processing, and utility plugins. From high-quality reverbs, EQs, and compressors, to guitar amp emulators, surround sound fold-down, and channel strip dynamics, you have everything you need to create professional mixes. Want more? Browse the in-app Avid Marketplace to find what you need.

Achieve the best mixes possible—automatically
Get great sounding, phase-accurate mixes with Automatic Delay Compensation—now with 4x the samples (16,383) to handle bigger mixes—no matter how many plug-ins you use. Plus, you can automate the settings of every element in the Pro Tools environment to add life to tracks and achieve the best mix possible.

Grab control of your mix
You can use a mouse to make changes one… at… a… time, or mix faster and easier using a hardware control surface. Get hands-on Pro Tools control with a choice of Avid control surfaces and consoles and third-party boards.

Very Good...!!!

By Gregory Jackson

from W. Bloomfield, MI

Pro Tools is number 1... !!! With the added Channel Strip (with the peak limiter and Max), you can produce a pretty nice Demo. I've used Cubase, Reason, Sonar, etc... for to many years. I finally switched to Pro Tools maybe 3 - 4 years ago. Pro Tools 10 in my opinion is far better than any. One problem I had with Cubase was with the VST instruments.... while playing a note, the sound of the note would stick???.. this was a problem on previous versions of Cubase as well. Sonar, nope and Reason, nope. Pro Tools has what it takes. You can judge a DAW via it's plug-ins. Pro Tools have excellent plug-ins!!! Pro Tools is what we use in the studio. All others are only good for home and/or hobby use.... but are limited for professional use...

Pro Tools 10 .... The BEST...

By Gregory Jackson

from W. Bloomfield, MI

Pro Tools 10 is number 1... !!! The included plug-ins (E.Q.'s, Limiter, Compressor, Max., etc.) are awesome!!! The recording features are top notch professional level. You can also download and rent(with a fee..option to buy) plug-ins from within the DAW... for mixing and mastering as well. But, with the new and included Channel Strip and new Clip Gain, you can produce a pretty nice Demo with the included plug-ins as well. I've used Cubase, Reason, and Sonar, IMO they don't compare. One problem I had with Cubase was with the VST instruments. While playing a note, the sound of the note would stick???..UM?? Problem was never resolved in any following versions. Also, other DAW's have very limited studio and professional use. Pro Tools is what we use in the studio. Other DAW's are good for home and/or hobby use only...

Great...!!!

By Gregory Jackson

from West Bloomfield, MI

Pro Tools is number 1... !!! With the added Channel Strip (with the peak limiter and Max), you can produce a pretty nice Demo ready for mastering. I've used Cubase, Reason, Sonar, etc... for to many years. I finally switched to Pro Tools maybe 3 - 4 years ago. Pro Tools 10 in my opinion is far better than any DAWs out there and in my opinion the best so far. One problem I had with Cubase was with the VST instruments. Being substandard, while playing a note, the sound of the note would stick???..this is only one example there are many more. But never the less, Pro Tools is what we use in the studio. All others are only good for home and/or hobby use... but are limited for professional use. Pro Tools has a little bit of a learning curve if you have used other DAW's with a few extra steps in so cases. Examples: You must add a click track ( in addition to your Audio Track for tempo) and an Audio Track for your RTAS instruments, etc... but still Pro Tools is very stable. Maybe more steps, but it's easy to learn!!! Its the industry standard...!!!

Don't listen to the which version is better spiel.

By DOUGLAS DECKER

from Omaha, Nebraska

The version of Pro Tools 10 that I am running is 10.2 and Mac OS Lion 10.7.2. I have a very stable system and tracking and mixing is not a problem. As long as you have the proper set-up and you're computer is ready for Pro Tools then you shouldn't have a problem. Always read the fine print. Download the updates for the software. Make sure you check out the support pages and ask questions. Read the FAQs. I have been using Pro Tools for almost 7 years now and it gets better with each release.

Come a long way

By Jean Loza

from Los Angeles CA

Everything is great right now. People are never happy and will always find something wrong. Precisely why this is software and new versions and updates happen frequently. If your perspective to making music is "signal flow" then Pro Tools 10 will make you feel right at home. What learning curve? It's pretty straight forward, fluid, and has a much better looking user interface then most DAWS! I'm happy knowing that creating, recording, and summing a track..sounds way better then in other DAWs. Try it yourself you'll be amazed.

Earlier Versions

By Kyle Carson

from Indianapolis

I agree with the previous review. Earlier versions, like 8 and 9, are much, much better because there are less bugs or glitches. My band recently recorded using Pro Tools 9 and it was very, very smooth and great in sound quality. My advice... Go with PT 9

Wait to buy this

By Arthur Howard

from Fairhope, Alabama

I never write reviews because they are generally personal opinions. However,I want to warn about the latest release of protools 10. I have been running protools 8 for years and decided to upgrade. This new release is very "buggy". It appears they released it before it was ready. And as usual, getting support and answers from Avid is like finding a needle in a haystack. Fact: very "buggy" Opinion: Wait until they get everything worked out and you start to see better reviews.
