It provides powerful and efficient tools to create music or sound for film/TV, and connect with a premier network of artists, producers, and mixers around the world via Avid Cloud. This full, boxed version of the software offers standalone functionality. It comes bundled with an iLok for software authorization and a 1-year Annual Upgrade and Support Plan, which provides access to the latest Pro Tools releases, including updates and upgrades, 25 bonus plug-ins, and priority support (renewable annually).

Pro Tools | HD 12 delivers pristine 32-bit/192 kHz sound with exceptionally low latency.

It comes with a 2GB loop library for loop-based music creation and Revision History, a feature that allows you to try out new ideas for a song and easily revert to a previous version without losing anything.

The mixing experience is enhanced with the addition of VCA Masters, which let you mix and control groups of tracks faster and easier, gain-reduction metering on every channel to gauge dynamics, and advanced automation tools that effortlessly automate the settings of nearly every element. The extended Disk Cache feature loads entire sessions into RAM, giving you a smoother and highly-responsive performance when recording and editing.
