Power Your Sound With The Tools That Power The Industry

Protools Composer Box Shot


Build Sessions on the Fly with Track Presets

Kick time-consuming tasks to the curb. With Track Presets, you can quickly save, catalog, and recall your favorite effects chains, vocal processing, session import criteria, and other track settings, and spend more time exploring the depth of your creativity.

Capture Performances Retroactively

Capture MIDI performances and advance your musical ideas when Pro Tools is not recording. Quickly add your improvisation and practice runs into your session with a simple key command. 

Take Deeper Control of your MIDI

Making music has never been easier. With numerous MIDI improvements and enhancements, you can fix and finesse every note to perfection - from transposing and trimming notes with arrow keys, to building chords and scores faster than ever before. 

Go Bigger - Without Barriers

You can now work without any resolution, frame rate, or video stream count limitations, enabling you to edit and deliver more media to the highest quality. And create more hyper-realistic, better-looking 3D and 360 VR content with support for 120 fps video coming soon. 

Comp Together The Best Takes

Build a target playlist of the best performances - from multiple playlists - right in the waveform view. It's ideal when working with grouped tracks, making playlist management and viewing no longer a challenge. You can also now cycle through different takes within a clip using the arrow keys for faster review. 

Retire your ilok

Pro Tool and all Avid audio plug-ins now support iLok Cloud. That means you now have the option to work iLok free and reclaim an extra USB port for a MIDI keyboard or audio interface. Or continue t use you iLok as before. 

Get Better UHD Perforance

With new EQ curve graphs on all Mix window channel strips, you can see how your settings and automation are impacting each track in real time - even those with multiple EQ's (supported plugins only). In addition, pre-fader sends and Automation lame view menu entries are not colour coded, making them easier to distinguish.  

Manage Assets with Easy

Got a session that your dying to work on with others? Select File > Start Collaboration, and Pro Tools will automatically save your session, close it, and reopen it as a project in the Cloud, with all tracks converted and ready to be shared
