Avid Pro Tools Standard Perpetual License (Retail) comes with a 1-Year Software Updates and Support Plan that ensures access to the latest enhancements, future software updates, Standard support, and Celemony Melodyne essential, as long as the plan is active.

Pro Tools is the go-to audio-production software for songwriters, musicians, producers, and engineers working in the music, film, and TV industry. Found in most professional recording and post-production facilities (as well as project and home studios), it provides all you need to compose, record, edit, and mix audio. From powerful recording and editing tools, easy loop workflows, and groundbreaking cloud collaboration, to first-class effects and automated mixing, Pro Tools makes working with music or producing soundtracks for picture fast, easy, and efficient—all with pristine 32-bit / 192 kHz audio quality.

Pro Tools Standard Perpetual License offers up to to 64 I/Os, 256 (mono/stereo) audio tracks, 512 instrument tracks, 1024 MIDI tracks, and one mono/stereo video track. It also comes with 55 virtual instruments, effects, and sound-processor plug-ins. The Avid Complete Plug-In Bundle (available separately) gives you access to just about every audio plug-in Pro Tools has to offer—over 115 plug-ins in total—all for a period of one year. Automatic delay compensation corrects for delays incurred by plug-ins and mixer routing as well as side chains.

With Pro Tools, you can edit audio with ease. Reshape sounds, fix issues, and edit tracks with ultimate flexibility and precision. Trim clips, edit notes, and add fades with the Smart Tool. Change tempo or timing on the fly with Elastic Time. You can even make bad notes sound pitch-perfect with Elastic Pitch.

The software comes with Avid Cloud Collaboration, enabling multiple collaborators to contribute to the same Pro Tools project remotely. You can work on a song with anyone, anywhere in the world as if you were in the same studio—all you need is an internet connection.

Pro Tools runs on Intel-based Windows and Mac computers as well as on M1-based Mac computers. Choose to authorize Pro Tools either via cloud license with iLok Cloud or with a physical iLok 2 / iLok 3 key (available separately).

Perpetual License: What's Included

  • Perpetual access to latest version of Pro Tools Standard software.
  • 1-year access to all available Pro Tools Standard updates. Keep all installed updates after the 12-month period expires.
  • 1-year access to Standard support with unlimited online technical support plus billing and account help—response within 24 to 48 hours.
  • 1-year access to Celemony Melodyne essential.
  • Perpetual access to 55 virtual instruments, effects, sound processors, and utility plug-ins.
  • Perpetual access to 1GB of Cloud Collaboration storage, 2GB high-quality loop library, plus over 3GB of bonus samples and sounds for virtual instruments.
  • Users who wish to retain access to software updates and Standard support after the initial 1-year period need to purchase a 1-Year Software Updates and Support Plan Renewal before their current updates and support plan expires. The active 1-Year Software Updates and Support Plan currently attached to your Perpetual license can be renewed at any time before it expires or up to 30 days after its original expiration date (30-day grace period).
  • If you did not renew your 1-Year Software Updates and Support Plan before it expired and still want access to software updates and Standard support, you must either buy another Perpetual license, or switch to a Subscription by purchasing a Perpetual Crossgrade to 2-year Subscription license (surrender of Perpetual license is required for Crossgrade).

Mix with Speed and Precision

From VCA Masters, Track Freeze, and professional metering, to the unrivaled ability to automate practically every element in your mix, Pro Tools makes the art of mixing music and soundtracks fast and easy. You can even explore alternative versions of a song or soundtrack with Project Revisions. Pro Tools Standard is for mono and stereo mixes only.

Work with Sound for Picture

Pro Tools lets you play and edit 4K/UHD and HD video, and Avid DNxHD sequences right in the Pro Tools timeline (1 video track). You can create and mix soundtracks in sync with the picture. Edit audio clips with timecode precision and position them perfectly in the scene. Clean up tracks and ensure every bit of dialog, music, and sound is heard using plug-ins and automation.

Convert Audio to MIDI

Audio-to-MIDI allows you to repitch notes, play with the timing, or even change the instrument in an audio file. Just drag and drop an audio clip to an instrument or MIDI track, and Pro Tools analyzes and renders all pitches and timing as MIDI note data, ready to be edited or revoiced. It not only works with melodic material, but you can convert percussive and polyphonic recordings too.

Change Pitch and Time with Melodyne

The Celemony Melodyne essential plug-in makes it easy to fix bad notes, hold out good ones, tighten up grooves, or even rearrange the melody, all with natural-sounding results. Perfect vocal and instrument performances quickly, or get more creative with them, using the core toolset.

Bring the Power of the Hybrid Engine to Pro Tools Using the Carbon Interface

Using Pro Tools Standard with the Pro Tools | Carbon interface (available separately) allows you to turbocharge your system with the Hybrid Engine and mix bigger sessions or record large performances with tons of plug-ins running in real time. The Hybrid Engine allows native CPU and Carbon power to be used more cooperatively to maximize Pro Tools performance. When you need to record with near-zero monitoring latency, simply put a track in DSP Mode. The track's entire signal chain and AAX DSP-compatible plug-ins are then processed directly on the Carbon interface while your CPU plays back the rest of your mix.

Save Tons of Time with Space Clips

For video-game sound designers, dialogue editors, and sound librarians who often import tens of thousands of audio files per project, Space Clips eliminates the mind-numbing grind and time wasted spacing clips apart before getting to work. With a single command, you can separate multiple clips on a track at equal time intervals of your choosing, quickly and easily.

Bounce Better

Whether bouncing a final mix, consolidating tracks, or printing stems, the new Bounce window enables you to work more easily than ever before. Create your own presets for frequently used workflows. Import OPAtom audio files. Plus, QuickTime capabilities are back for macOS Catalina users, enabling you to once again export MOV, MP4, M4V, and M4A (AAC) files—critical for audio post workflows.

Discover the Power of the Dark Side

Now you can choose between light and darkness to meet your visual needs or preferences. With the Dark theme, Pro Tools offers a modern look and feel that's easier on the eyes—especially in lower light conditions. It is ideal for mood-lit studios and late-night sessions. Or for those simply looking for a sleek little change of scenery. You can also change the brightness and saturation of almost every aspect of the Dark and Classic user interface.

Bring Focus to Your Session with Folder Tracks

Take command of large sessions by organizing tracks into collapsible folders, enabling you to work more creatively and productively. Arrange, consolidate, and route tracks quickly with drag-and-drop ease. And group folders in folders and color-code them for even easier navigation.

Connect to Ableton-Link-Enabled Apps and Devices

Expand your instrument options and enable multiple music and beat makers to play along with your session. With support for Ableton Link, you can connect Pro Tools to a wide range of Link-enabled music creation apps, electronic instruments, and sound processors on your network—everything and everyone in perfect sync.

Collaborate in the Cloud

Avid Cloud Collaboration enables you to work with up to 10 collaborators on a project with other Pro Tools users online. Access and work on projects from anywhere using any Pro-Tools-equipped computer.

Connect, Expand Opportunities, and Get Discovered

With Avid Link in the Pro Tools interface, you can connect with other music creators and audio professionals to find collaborators and gigs, share your work, promote your skills, and expand your creative opportunities. Plus, get your music heard on Apple Music, Spotify, Pandora, TIDAL, and dozens of other major streaming services with easy music distribution through AvidPlay (available separately).

Take Hands-On Control of Your Mix

Experience the deepest level of integration when you pair Pro Tools with any EUCON-enabled control surface—includes Avid S6, S4, S3, S1, and Avid Dock, as well as the free Avid Control app on your mobile device (all available separately). Speed up recording, editing, and mixing tasks with access to tracks, plug-ins, and automation control right from the surface. You can even create custom keys to perform practically any Pro Tools function with a single button press.
