Ultra-flexible recording, editing, and mixing environment

There's a reason Avid's Pro Tools software is the go-to DAW for countless recording studios and editing suites around the world: it simply works. That's why so many of us at Sweetwater choose Pro Tools software for our own home studios. Pro Tools software's ultra-streamlined 2-window user interface makes navigation easy, putting all of the controls and commands you regularly use right at your fingertips. And most advanced functions are only an additional click away. Forget about spending days or even weeks just getting to know the program. With Pro Tools software, you can dive right in quickly and establish the workflow that best meets your needs.

Create with an amazing collection of powerful 64-bit AAX plug-ins

Now included in all active Pro Tools Annual Upgrade and Support Plans as well as subscription licenses are the Space convolution reverb (a $499 value) and 16 brand-new stompbox effect plugins inspired by Eleven Rack. Add grit, space, modulation, and overdrive to your tracks with this bundle of stompbox-type effects from the Pro Tools | Eleven Rack amp/cabinet hardware product. This new collection of 64-bit AAX Native, AAX DSP, and AAX AudioSuite plug-ins are modeled after the circuitry and design of many classic and popular analog guitar stompboxes and effects - from EQ and compressor, to reverb, delay, modulation, and distortion effects. In addition to the 16 Eleven stompbox effects and Space, Pro Tools | HD customers also get all five Avid Pro Series plug-ins: Pro Compressor, Pro Expander, Pro Limiter, Pro Multiband Dynamics and Pro Subharmonic. Also included is the Eleven amp/cabinet simulator plug-in, ReVibe II (a powerful room-modeling plug-in), and Reverb One.

Integrated mixing and editing power that goes way deeper than plug-ins

As wonderful as AAX plug-ins are, they only scratch the surface of what Pro Tools software has to offer. Much of its real production power is built into the environment itself. Flexible functions such as Avid's multitrack Beat Detective and Elastic Audio let you fix timing issues across your entire mix. Automatic delay compensation ensures that your mix remains intact, even when you pile on the plug-ins. What's more, AAX plug-ins allow you to take projects back and forth between your Pro Tools software system and Pro Tools HD systems, so collaborating with high-end professional studios is super easy. Track compositing functions also let you quickly merge multiple takes into a single flawless performance. Full support for Artist Series and other EUCON-equipped control surfaces lets you take total command of Pro Tools software beyond the capabilities of HUI-based controllers. And thanks to Pro Tools software's faster-than-real-time offline bounce functions, mixing down stems and freeing up processor power is extremely simple.

Loaded with the quality tools you need for in-the-box music creation

As comprehensive as Pro Tools software is for recording and editing audio, it's also the weapon of choice for music composers and electronic musicians. Not only does Pro Tools software include a full lineup of great virtual instruments, but it also gives you the environment and tools you need to get the most out of them. If you're a traditional composer, you'll love how easy it is to import your scores or create new compositions in Pro Tools software's versatile score editor. And if you're into modern MIDI production, Pro Tools software's massive collection of MIDI tools will absolutely blow your mind!

Music production, broadcast, video-post, and beyond

The power of Pro Tools software extends far beyond the realm of music production, making it a favorite for video post and broadcast professionals around the world. With software-spanning interchange options such as OMF/AAF/MXF interchange, Clip Gain metadata support, and a Unified Video Engine that can play most common HD video formats without the need for transcoding, integrating your Pro Tools software rig with Avid Media Composer is a snap.

Connect and collaborate with other musicians and audio pros

With Avid Cloud Collaboration, you can connect and collaborate with other musicians, producers, engineers, and mixers, giving you access to the right tools, workflows, and connections you need to make your work stand apart from the crowd. It doesn't matter where you and your collaborators are - it's like working together in the same studio! On top of that, the Avid Marketplace and Artist Community connect you with the largest network of media professionals to help you share, promote, and sell your work.
