Avid Pro Tools 12 software is the toolkit that professionals turn to when it comes to composing, recording, editing and mixing music or sound - whether it be to craft the next legendary album, or score the soundtrack to an epic film. Boasting a host of advanced tools to work with, and an efficient workflow that is readily accessible but capable of incredibly complex compositions, once you start using Pro Tools 12 you'll wonder how you ever got by without it.
Create and Compose Your Way
Whether you prefer to create tracks on the fly, create, edit and dabble in MIDI Editors, or create elaborate scores using musical notation, Pro Tools 12 is equipped with all the necessary tools to facilitate you creative needs. The built-in Sibelius Score Editor gives you exceptional power in creating virtual compositions, and sessions can even be exported as Sibelius (.sib) files for further touches in Sibelius.
Recording Made Easy
The beauty of Pro Tools lies in its ability to handle incredible amounts of information in a seemingly effortless manner, opening up your computers power with 64 bit capability - giving you the ability to handle huge mixes and let loose your creativity. The redesigned Avid Audio Engine combines beautifully with 64-bit performance to ensure that as you add instrument after instrument to your composition, latency and/or processing time remains unaffected. Whether you’re tracking guitars, vocals, drums, or a full Indian orchestra, you can rest assured that your recordings will remain pristine throughout.
Thanks to Avid’s Loop Recording function, you can create a seemingly spontaneous recording by merging together your best takes into one perfect recording. Or if you so desire, you can use features such as QuickPunch to drop in and drop to remove anything you’re unhappy with – simple and effective!
Edit to Impress
So you’ve recorded multiple instruments and incorporated several virtual instruments into your arrangement. Now you get to Edit your parts to shape and craft your music just as you want. With access to over 60 included effects, sound-processing tools and utility plug-ins, including: Reverbs, EQ, compressors, guitar amp emulators, surround sound fold-down, and channel strip dynamics - giving you everything you need to create professional mixes.
Mix with Finesse
Thanks to faster-than-real-time offline bounce, you can speed up your final mix or stem deliveries at up to 150x faster and still get the results that you would expect from Pro Tools, this is all thanks to time stamped automation. You can also monitor your record inputs on native systems with ultra-low latency. Use the built in variety of metering-standards. Automate tracks while recording and work faster with newly mapped key commands for an improved user experience.
