Edit MIDI automation and continuous controller (CC) data through multiple Automation and Controller lanes. Even watch your musical handiwork scroll by in real time during playback.
Transpose with Elastic Pitch

Pro Tools M-Powered 8 features new track compositing workflows, enabling you to quickly and easily piece together the best possible version of a performance from multiple recording passes.
