Avid on Thursday unveiled the next major version of its digital audio workstation, Pro Tools.
The company updated its Web site tonight with all of the information on Pro Tools 10, and there certainly looks like there’s a lot to be excited about.
Some of the new features are:
- Speed up editing and mixing with Clip Gain, and easily adjust and match gain levels, pre-mixer
- Use multiple audio formats in a session—including interleaved—without file duplication
- Record higher resolution sound with more headroom in 32-bit floating-point format
- Get great responsiveness on slower hard drives with the enhanced disk cache
- Record in low-latency mode, with direct monitoring when using third-party audio interfaces
- Get the sound of System 5 console EQ and dynamics with the Avid Channel Strip plug-in
- Get access to over 500 additional Pro Tools commands when using EUCON controllers
- Work more easily with AudioSuite-rendered clips with reverse processing, handles, and more
- Create extra long-format projects for sequential versioning with the extended 24-hour timeline
- Open fade-heavy sessions faster and get better responsiveness with real-time fades
- Fold down 5.1 surround mixes to stereo with the Down Mixer plug-in
- Export mixes directly to SoundCloud to share and promote your music to the world
- Shop for virtual instruments, effects, and sound processing plug-ins in the Marketplace
I’ll post a more detailed look at Pro Tools 10 when I’ve had a chance to use it myself.
