Avid Pro Tools 12 Available Today!




Pro Tools 12 is here! It offers easier and more flexible ways of getting your hands on the best tools in the industry and staying on the cutting edge of music and sound creation with flexible licensing options. These new flexible licensing options enable you to create with a low-cost subscription, own it outright, or get started with Pro Tools | First, a free version of the industry standard. The choice is yours.

CALL or CHAT for details!

This release marks a fundamental change in the way Avid will deliver new feature updates—in smaller but faster release dates instead of the traditional 18-month wait between big updates. For new users, it’s never been more affordable to use the latest version of Pro Tools—starting at under $25 a month for an annual subscription. For existing Pro Tools (standard) users, the choice is theirs now on what makes sense for their upgrade schedule, whether to stay on an annual perpetual license or a new monthly subscription license.  Plus, all Pro Tools 12 licenses come with a support plan which, in addition to providing software updates/upgrades, offers unlimited web support and either one support phone call per month for Pro Tools or unlimited calls for Pro Tools | HD, for the duration of the plan.

Avid Cloud Collaboration, along with the Avid Marketplace and the Avid Artist Community are coming! Create. Collaborate. Be heard!

The Avid Marketplace has three key components that will impact, empower and connect all sound related artists:


Avid App Store – Get ultra-fast access to creative tools (like plug-ins or VI’s) so you can deliver your best sounding work—directly from within Pro Tools. Buy or rent plug-ins when you need them without a time consuming process.

Artist Community – Setup your profile, find and connect with artists, musicians, engineers, and other media professionals to foster new collaborative and creative opportunities, and share your work.

Content Marketplace – Earn recognition and payment for your work by connecting with media professionals in music, film, television, and broadcast looking to license music and sound assets.


The new Eleven Effect Plug-In Bundle contains 17 hip and amazing sounding analog ‘stomp box’ modeled effects previously only available from the Eleven Rack. These include Distortion pedals, Chorus/Phaser pedals, EQ pedals, Reverb and Delay pedals as well as a Wah pedal. They will be available for all Pro Tools users as AAX Native, Audiosuite and DSP and are coming soon at an amazing price. Be sure to check these out —they are awesome and affordable.

We’ll be diving deeper on many of these topics in the coming months … It’s not so hard to believe that it’s the year 2015 when you look at how far music and sound creation has come. Here’s to some exciting creating, collaborating and being heard in 2015. Cheers and thanks for reading!

Studio Tour : Emmy Winner Paula Fairfield's Dolby Atmos Studio

Emmy Award Winning Sound Designer Paula Fairfield is most famous for her work on the hit HBO show, “Game Of Thrones". She’s the sound designer that gives the dragons their voice, and every roar, flap or hiss coming from one of Daenerys’ three dragons is created in the studio she built in her desert home near Palm Springs.

The heart of Paula’s studio is the Avid Pro Tools S6 control surface and Colin Broad PD3 / A-Mon monitoring system that controls her HDX system. For Dolby Atmos monitoring, RSPE incorporated a JBL LSR system housed in the ASC AttackWall for Immersive Sound. The ASC AttackWall provides an optimum mixing environment that's portable and modular and translates every time.
