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 depths of your creativity.


Capture performances retroactively

Capture MIDI performances and advance your musical ideas, even when Pro Tools is not recording. Quickly add

your improvisations 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 the arrow keys, to building chords

and scores faster than ever before.


Comp together the best takes

Build a Target Playlist of the best performances—from multiple playlists—right in 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 key

Pro Tools and all Avid audio plug-ins now support iLok Cloud. That means you now have the option to work iLokfree,

and reclaim an extra USB port for a MIDI keyboard or audio interface. Or continue using your iLok as before.


Get a better view of your mix

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 EQs (supported plug-ins only). In addition, pre-fader

sends and Automation lane view menu entries are now color-coded, making them easier to distinguish.


Start collaborating more easily

Got a session that you’re dying to work on with others? Select File > Start Collaboration, and Pro Tools will

automatically save your current session, close it, and reopen it as a project in the cloud, with all tracks converted

and ready to be shared.
