Overview

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. Or choose a lower cost Annual Upgrade Plan for Pro Tools and get all upgrades for one low annual price.

      Comments about Avid Pro Tools 2018 with 1-Year of Updates + Support Plan (Boxed):

      Pro Tools is literally the worst recording software on the market in my opinion. Calling it the "Industry Standard" anymore, is a misnomer to say the least. Professionals and hobbyists a like are running away screaming from this program. There's a pretty good learning curve when learning any new daw-computer recording program, but when you're facing such a junky piece of software, you're just doomed not to get Any volume of recording done, because Pro Tools is always having a cow about something.. This program has so many issues with interfaces, crashing, and bugs, it's amazing the company hasn't had a class action law suit filed against them yet. Everything! about the manufacturer and their product is Horrible! Completely Unstable, and a nightmare to record with. I've been using this program for about 2 years after buying it on GC, and that's my experience. You've been warned.

      **Just so you know: they have to give you an upgrade with this sale because they know you're going to have problems with their software. So, by giving you the next big upgrade "free", is how they sucker you into spending more and more on this dead end recording software. Avid's default position: it's always the users fault.

      **daws are usually very large programs that are constantly being fixed, or changed, so expect downloading with a code with all of them. The cd/dvd is usually very outdated.

        Comments about Avid Pro Tools 2018 with 1-Year of Updates + Support Plan (Boxed):

        I use Pro Tools 12 (2018) for editing The Music Connection Podcast and for my professional Voiceover studio work. Since 2008 I had used Pro Tools LE8 and had great success with it. This newest version has some really cool features like showing track compression & EQ curve displays in realtime for each track. Very happy with my purchase, and Guitar Center shipped it very fast and the Boxed version purchase included an iLok3 in the box. Something I wished would've been mentioned in the webpage listing since I had already purchased one.
