New For Pro Tools 12.5

Pro Tools 12.5 builds on previous versions of the software, retaining all your favourite tools and components while adding brand new features that expand your toolset and streamline your workflow. One of the most prominent new features is Cloud Collaboration. This powerful new tool lets you upload projects to your cloud storage space and invite other artists to collaborate or work on the project. This feature lets you work on projects with other musicians in real time, providing a ground-breaking new way to collaborate and work with other artists. You can do everything you would in-studio with another artist, from sharing audio and MIDI tracks to mix changes, automations, filters and more. You can also communicate and talk with collaborators through the convenient text chat feature. With this new feature you can now collaborate with any artist in real-time, opening up a whole world of possibilities when it comes to making and arranging music.

64 Bit Architecture and new Avid Audio Engine

The all new Avid Audio Engine provides multiple times the processing power of Pro Tools 10. You can add epic numbers of virtual instruments and effects to your music and experience performance like never before. The extra memory gives you more scope to go even bigger and handle huge sessions with ease. The software gives ultra low latency with dedicated input and playback buffers on native systems without sacrificing plug-in performance. Dynamic host processing reallocates resources as needed and lets you maximize plug-in counts. Time stamped plug-in automation gives you more accurate missing and processing.

Offline Bounce

Speed up mix and stem deliveries with faster than real time offline bounce. There's support for HDX and native systems and up to 150x faster than real time (a 1 hour radio show in 45 seconds). It's ultra accurate with time-stamped automation.

Avid Video Engine

Play and edit HD video with the new Avid Video Engine, the same core engine as in Media Composer. Do everything right there in the Pro Tools timeline without transcoding. Produce HD video with many options from Avid, AJA and Blackmagic Designs.

Satellite Link

Control multiple Pro Tools/HD Systems from one with Satellite Link. (HD 12 only)

Advanced Metering

Pro Tools 12 features a broad range of built in metering standards to maintain adherence to regional broadcast requirements. There are 17 metering standards and types built in displayed in a higher resolution and 30 taller. There's a gain reduction meter in channel for total dynamics processing feedback (HD 12 only) and Master Tracks can display separate meter type than other tracks. Greater visual feedback means you can deliver the best mixes with an extended selection of built in metering standards. Mini dynamics metering, mini sends view and expanded sends view are all amongst the new features (HD 12 only).

Automate While Recording

Pro Tools 12 has simplified workflows for live sound, re-recording VCA Masters and Dolby ATMOS. You can automate while input or recording audio and automation can be touched up after the pass is recorded - instead of starting from scratch.

Co-Install Pro Tools 10 and Pro Tools 12

Pro Tools 12 comes with both Pro Tools 12 and Pro Tools 10 licenses for session compatibility and to help ease the AAX transition.
