The latest version of the audio post-production solution is designed to boost power and performance for every level of user from aspiring artists to top-echelon audio post professionals and engineers, enabling them to work faster and more creatively on the most complex projects.

“Our goal was to deliver new features for every kind of user, whether they’re working in audio post production, or music creation, and whether they’re a Pro Tools | First user just starting out or a Pro Tools | Ultimate user at the peak of their career,” explained Rob D’Amico, director, audio solutions marketing at Avid.

Among the new features for users working in high track-count environments, such as audio post production, Pro Tools | Ultimate is said to be able to deliver 50% more voices/audio tracks than previous versions. In addition to this base voice limit increase to 384, Pro Tools | Ultimate software and HD Native customers will be able to further increase the number of available voices up to 768 per system—on par with a three-card Pro Tools | HDX system—with the addition of native Pro Tools | Ultimate Voice Packs.

The new release also has enhanced playback features claimed to enable more fluid creativity in the software. Users can perform track and timeline interactions during playback—inserting plug-ins, adding or deleting tracks, changing routing, adjusting loop duration and more. This suite of playback features is said to ultimately allow users to work quickly, and therefore more productively, without playback errors disrupting workflow.

Avid has also announced the immediate availability of Pro Tools Multiseat Network Site Licensing, enabling administration of multiple Pro Tools seats from a single account and local server, eliminating the need for a multitude of physical iLok dongles and cumbersome site management.
