iLok2 required to license this product.

Pro Tools is the industry choice for composing, recording, editing and mixing pro audio for music, film and TV. With Pro Tools 12 you can get to your mix faster than any previous version of Pro Tools with new and enhanced features including Cloud Collaboration, Track Commit and Track Bounce workflows, Clip Transparency, improved batch fades and so much more!

Connect and collaborate in the cloud—just added
Imagine being able to work on a session with friends, colleagues, or your favorite artist or producer with ease—no matter where they are in the world. You can with Avid Cloud Collaboration for Pro Tools. Record, edit, and mix projects with others as if you’re all working together in the same studio. And find new collaborators through the online Avid Artist Community.

Track Freeze, Commit, and Bounce—just added
Processor-hungry virtual instruments can impact system performance. And sharing sessions used to require that everyone have the same plug-ins. No more. With Track Freeze, you can quickly freeze or unfreeze all plug-ins on a track—or just up to a certain insert—to free up processing power. Track Commit is similar except it renders the track (or an edit selection) permanently. And with Track Bounce, you can render out stems for fast and easy file delivery.

Experience power, performance, and versatility

With Pro Tools, you get even more pro-level features and capabilities you need to quickly create and deliver professional-quality music and audio mixes. Get unrivaled processing power to create without bounds. Record more easily with input monitoring. Mix smarter with Track Freeze, VCA masters, and extended metering features. Get smoother performance and highly responsive recording and playback with the extended Disk Cache. And with the Avid Video Engine, you can play HD video right in the Pro Tools timeline.

Create with Pro Tools in more ways than ever

You now have more choice in how you acquire and use Pro Tools. Get the power and premium sound quality you need to create the best sounding mixes with a Pro Tools or Pro Tools | HD hardware/software system. Create in the studio, at home, or on the go with just Pro Tools software. Access Pro Tools only when you need it through a low-cost monthly or annual subscription.

Work with sound for picture

Pro Tools is more than just sound—you can work with audio for movies, television, and other visual media too. Play HD video and Avid DNxHD sequences right in the timeline. Edit with precision using the built-in Timecode Ruler. Clean up sound using the included plug-ins. Create sound effects that define (or defy) reality. Work easily with AudioSuite-rendered clips. And record and edit voiceovers, Foley, and ADR with perfect frame accuracy. You can even share audio mixes with Media Composer editors through AAF.

Sound your best with bonus plug-ins

Get access to additional plug-ins through your Pro Tools subscription or upgrade
plan. Add more life and realism to vocal and instrument tracks with Space, a high- quality convolution reverb plug-in. Get the sounds of some of the most coveted classic stompboxes with access to 16 Eleven Effects plug-ins. And with Pro Tools | HD, gain access to Avid’s most coveted plug-ins, including all five Pro Series plug-ins, plus ReVibe II, Reverb One, and Eleven.

Access upgrades, support, and more
All Pro Tools subscriptions, upgrades, and crossgrades now come with an even better upgrade and support plan. Not only do you get access to all new Pro Tools releases and expert help throughout your annual plan or subscription, but also to an amazing bonus collection of high-quality effects and sound-processing plug-ins—at no additional cost.

Comments about Avid Pro Tools 12 with 1-Year Standard Support - Student/Teacher (Activation Card):

Pro Tools is the blah blah standard. First off don't listen to that bull. Pro tools is just like any other DAW it's industry standard because all the big name studios are in breaded with Pro Tools software to the point that it would cost them thousands if not millions to just switch DAWs. Now that that's out the way NEVER use Pro Tools as your producing DAW that is not what it is use for. Other DAWs such as Logic, FL Studio, Studio Live, etc are better equip for that purpose. Look at Pro Tools as just another workflow if you want to mix what you created in your other DAW and track vocals. It's better that way because your learning what the "pros" are doing and getting your hands wet with the industry standard they love to bash in your face. Plus customers love to hear the name "Pro Tools" because they think that's going to make them any better then what they are now. That is when Auto Tune becomes your best friend. But besides that it is not a bad software I recommend buying Pro Tools 101 book and learning it YOURSELF. The more you fail the better you get at it. Trust me just learn it yourself and google any problems you may face because customer service is a waste. Don't even attempt trust me just don't. Another tip don't buy into the upgrade unless it's an upgrade you really need. The most important information for any upcoming artist or producer is that making music is not just about skills but finding a workflow that works for you. FL/ Maschine is my go-to for producing songs. Do some light mixes or no mix at all then drag the audio to Pro Tools and finish it while recording the vocal in Pro Tools. Hope that helps.

Now go make money off of people dreams, and for artistes don't make generic music that you hear on the radio you will never get pick up by any label. Also another tip if your looking to be like big name artist like Drake, Beyonce, Katy Perry, etc you require an appealing image, don't be like those people. Make music that you would enjoy.

    Comments about Avid Pro Tools 12 with 1-Year Standard Support - Student/Teacher (Activation Card):

    Pro Tools is the industry standard for a reason. Why do you think so many people who are well versed in the industry use it. Sure it is expensive but the only DAW that come close to being as powerful and versatile to Pro Tools is Ableton. Pro Tools has a little bit of a learning curve but once you get past it, it is the fastest and easiest DAW to use. Pro Tools is 100% more professional than logic, FL, or Reaper by far. As an audio engineer and a musician, when I walk into a session and see the engineer using logic or FL, I feel like there is a level of unprofessionalism and amateur-like, and I feel like I can do more with my tools than the person who is recording me. Anyway, you pay for more than just the DAW, you pay for the tools to advance your audio skills and to show your professionalism.

    Student and teacher edition

    Comments about Avid Pro Tools 12 with 1-Year Standard Support - Student/Teacher (Activation Card):

    Purchesed this and picked up from local GC. In many of the descriptions it says iLok2 required and sold separately, but know this student version comes with one. I had to uninstall my old PT 8le before installing this one but everything is pretty easy. I registered with my school email so acceptance was instantaneous. The software took a long time to download and the other audio tools also have to be downloaded spearately, fyi. So a long set up process but atg half off, I am not complaining.
