  • Core Audio and ASIO Compatible
  • Offline Bounce

Pro Tools 11 from Avid is the next incarnation of the industry standard software that is now based on a 64-bit architecture. While there are several important enhancements, this one feature finally allows the software to access as much RAM as is present on a computer system, over the previous 4 GB limit. What this means in particular is that virtual instruments that contain large sample file bases can now be fully loaded, while the number of instruments that can be simultaneously available in a session is also increased.

Another major feature that many have clamored for is the offline bounce function. Now preparing intermediary or final mixes is much faster using a simple command. Sound quality is maintained throughout due to the time-stamped automation and multiple files in different file formats can be created simultaneously. Record input monitoring has been enhanced with ultra-low latency even when routing through plug-ins. And those working with audio for picture will appreciate the ability to play Avid DNxHD files and other HD formats directly within the timeline without transcoding.

A wide variety of plug-ins are included with the software, as are six virtual instruments. The software not only works with the company's interfaces, but since version 9, with any Core Audio or ASIO compliant interface. That means that working on an approved Apple portable computer or Windows-based device (requires an ASIO soundcard) allows for convenient portable recording or editing. Along with the recommendation that any system have as much RAM as possible, the software now requires the use of an iLok 2 authorization key if one is not provided, as the original iLok is no longer supported.

Since Pro Tools 11 no longer supports RTAS plug-ins, the company includes a full copy of Pro Tools 10 for those occasions that require the use of non-updated plug-ins. Both versions can coexist on the same hard drive and session interchange between the two is seamless.

    Comments about Avid Pro Tools 11 - Professional Audio Recording and Music Creation Software (Boxed with DVDs):

    Fantastic product, once you get it working right. Tough to get it installed and get my sound I/O working correctly. Overall, a great DAW mainframe. If you are a novice or not a very tech savvy user, I would seek out a different recording software. I can see why so many people lose it over getting PT to run correctly.

    Really Happy with Pro Tools 11

    By RADIO GUY

    from New York, NY

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about Avid Pro Tools 11 - Professional Audio Recording and Music Creation Software (Boxed with DVDs):

    I've been using Pro Tools for years, have always been happy with it, and I found the transition to Pro Tools 11 smooth and seamless. It's just logical and easy, as always. I recommend it highly, whether you work in music production, or mostly in the spoken word, as I do for radio and television commercials, and for various corporate applications.

        Comments about Avid Pro Tools 11 - Professional Audio Recording and Music Creation Software (Boxed with DVDs):

        This program has a non-trivial learning curve.

        It is particularly irritable about hardware, and it does not always play nicely with others.
