This upgrade is for the following products:
Pro Tools 9 through 11
Pro Tools Express* (bundled with Pro Tools Mbox, Fast Track Solo, or Fast Track Duo interfaces only)
Pro Tools M-Powered 6 through 8
Pro Tools MP 9

Pro Tools from Avid takes the already mature and fully featured audio creation software into the realm of the "cloud" with all of its promises. This upgrade comes with a twelve-month upgrade and support plan (renewable) that ensures access to the latest enhancements, and includes future software updates and upgrades (as long as the plan is active), along with 24/7 access to Customer Care to get help whenever it's needed.

Here is a quick overview of some noteworthy features of the program. Since the software is based on a 64-bit architecture, the program is able to access as much RAM as is present on the computer, which in turn allows virtual instruments that contain large sample libraries to be fully loaded for instant playback. Additionally, the number of instruments that can be simultaneously available in a session has also increased. Another major feature is an offline bounce function. Preparing intermediary or final mixes is much faster using a simple command. Sound quality is maintained due to time-stamped automation, and multiple files with different file formats can be created simultaneously.

Record input monitoring features low latency even when routing through plug-ins. 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.

Some of the upcoming enhancements include collaboration in the cloud with other artists and producers, anywhere in the world. A Marketplace where artists can share, license, or sell music and audio projects, and buy virtual instruments, plug-ins, and more. Access to prior work from anywhere using an audio archival service that stores content and tracks it, regardless of whether a session is stored locally, or in the cloud. Archive a stereo mix, the full session, individual stems, or even flatten all tracks so that the original plug-ins used to create them aren't required.

The introduction of a universal metadata schema into the software will help manage, track, and document every asset and project created. This metadata will enable media creators and distributors to keep track of everyone who creatively contributed to specific content, making it easy to document who did what, manage and control versioning, and provide accurate credit information. Some of these enhancements are implemented, while others and future ones like it will be delivered via the upgrade plan.

Note: Users who wish to extend the upgrade and support components for another twelve months, after the initial twelve-month period has expired, need to purchase either the Pro Tools Annual Upgrade Plan, the Pro Tools Annual Plug-in and Support Plan, or both.

This product is an educational discounted version available to qualified, accredited academic institutions only (not for individual teachers or students). Proof of current educational status is required.
