What's New


Create at the speed of inspiration

From numerous new MIDI editing enhancements and retrospective MIDI recording, to the ability to save your favorite effects chains and instrument sounds as track presets, Pro Tools 2018 enables you to keep your creativity flowing.




Search to access the plugins and busses you need

And quickly select multiple view, toolbar, window, and other preferences using checkboxes in pop-over menus.



Edit audio in the groove

Don’t want everything to perfectly align to the beat when rearranging a session? You can now have Pro Tools maintain the relative grid position when copying, cutting, and pasting audio and MIDI clips and note selections. Not only does this expedite the editing process, it preserves the perfectly imperfect feel of unquantized music by retaining all correct offsets established in your timeline.

Retire your iLok key

Pro Tools and all Avid audio plug-ins now support iLok Cloud. That means you now have the option of putting your trusty old iLok key to rest and freeing 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.

Record with ease

Tracking vocals and instrument performances is now faster and easier than ever. Rehearse and record more easily with track input monitoring. Dial in cue mixes in a snap by copying fader settings to sends. And solo tracks in PFL (pre-fader listen) or AFL (after-fader listen) mode for optimal recording.


Go bigger

Working with a large multi-piece band or complex soundtrack for a movie or video? No need to worry about running out of tracks. With the latest version of Pro Tools, you can simultaneously play back up to 128 audio tracks, 512 instrument tracks, and 512 MIDI tracks.

Turn ideas into masterpieces

Take your songwriting from sketchpad to final production with speed and ease.

Edit with precision using the built-in Timecode Ruler. Clean up sound using the included plug-ins. Create sound effects that define (or defy) reality. Work easily with AudioSuite-rendered clips.

Collaborate with others

Collaboration has never been easier. With Pro Tools, you can exchange sessions with any Pro Tools user or studio. Or work on projects created in other audio and video software—including Media Composer, Logic, and Cubase—right in Pro Tools. And with Cloud Collaboration for Pro Tools, you are able to collaborate on projects with anyone, anywhere, over the cloud.


Edit tracks

Integrate into more post workflows

Need to collaborate with Media Composer or other video post-production editing teams? Pro Tools now supports XAVC Long GOP files and 1080p50 project types, enabling you to work your audio editing and mixing magic on projects that use these formats.


Gain greater efficiency

Got tons of tracks and countless clips? Giving them all meaningful names is now a much faster and easier affair with Batch Rename. This powerful new feature enables you to rename batches of tracks or clips in a variety of ways, including find and replace, adding prefixes and/or suffixes, and applying various numbering conventions.


Get the details


Edit playlists more easily

It’s now easier than ever to access and manage Pro Tools’ powerful playlists. Quickly switch between playlists with new key commands. Know if you have multiple playlists on a given track with new visual indicators. And automatically send overlapped clips to new or existing playlists.


Edit layers of audio more easily

If you work in post, positioning countless audio clips to picture, you probably have multiple clips that overlap on a track. With new enhancements to the way Pro Tools handles such clips, editing audio is easier than ever. Clear only overlaps. Heal clips when removing one that overlaps two. Trim the starts and ends of two overlapping clips. Modify behaviors. And more. In addition, Pro Tools supports Clip Effects playback (editing requires Pro Tools | HD).


Adjust fades more easily

You can now quickly adjust a fade in, fade out, or crossfade's shape directly in the Edit window using the Smart Tool. Simply position your cursor over any clip’s fade area until it changes to the corresponding fade or crossfade cursor. Then click and drag left or right to change the fade's shape and slope.


Position clips more precisely with clip transparency

If you’re a sound editor or designer, precision and speed are paramount when it comes to aligning and editing clips. Now clips take on a translucent appearance whenever you move and overlap one over another, giving you better visual clarity of their context. This enables you to quickly align the waveforms of a new audio clip to the visual cues of an existing one’s waveforms with much better precision and ease.


Save time with batch fades

Fading tracks is one of the fundamentals of audio editing. But it can be tedious and time consuming when editing thousands of audio clips. With new fade enhancements, you can speed through repetitious tasks and gain more time to focus on the creative aspects of your mix. Create and tweak presets for fade ins, fade outs, crossfades, and batch fades. Recall presets directly from your keyboard or control surface. And control fade settings independently when working with batch fades.


Stretch your creativity

With its elastic audio features, you can edit audio as easily as MIDI to fix what’s funky and quickly explore your creative options. Change the tempo or timing of a clip or entire composition on the fly with Elastic Time. Make bad notes sound pitch perfect—without sounding like a chipmunk… or Vin Diesel—with Elastic Pitch. You can even create harmonies and transpose clips in real time, without altering the tempo.


Edit with precision

Shape and fine-tune your music and audio with professional, sample-accurate editing tools. Create the perfect performance by comping together tracks. Speed up editing and mixing tasks with the Smart Tool. Even out volume levels with Clip Gain. And smooth transitions with crossfades. Everything you need to perfect your tracks is available right from within a single Edit window.


Get in the groove

A couple cups of coffee (or a couple of beers) can affect any drummer’s performance. With the Beat Detective tool, you can quickly fix timing issues across multiple tracks to get him or her on the beat. Or change up the feel of a beat altogether to get a different groove. You can even use it to keep your rhythm section “in the pocket” by extracting the groove from a drumbeat and applying it to the bass part.


Mix and share

Maximize your sonic palette

Pro Tools comes stocked full of pro-caliber virtual instruments and sound processors to make you sound incredible. And now you can sound your absolute best with access to every audio plug-in Avid has to offer*—at a fantastic price. Subscribe to the Avid Complete Plug-in Bundle and you'll have the amazing sounds of classic compressors and EQs, studio-staple effects, vintage synths, powerful reverbs, the world's greatest guitar amps, and much more—all at your fingertips.


Get it now


Get Track Freeze, Commit, and Bounce

Processor-hungry virtual instruments can impact system performance. And sharing sessions used to require that everyone have the same plug-ins. No more. With Track Freeze, you can quickly freeze or unfreeze all plug-ins on a track—or just up to a certain insert—to free up processing power. Track Commit is similar except it renders the track (or an edit selection) permanently. And with Track Bounce, you can render out stems for fast and easy file delivery.
