Avid Preview Pro Tools 2019 Update at NAB



Avid is giving NAB a preview of the next update to Pro Tools 2019. This release introduces a voice limit increase for all Pro Tools | Ultimate customers on active plans, macOS Mojave support, as well as new features that enable fast and fluid creation and experimentation.

What’s New in Pro Tools 2019


Create and mix with more voices in Pro Tools | Ultimate

Pro Tools | Ultimate now enables you to work with up to 384 simultaneous voices/audio tracks (up from 256) with just the software alone or Pro Tools HD Native (does not apply to HDX). That’s 50% more voices! Plus, with Pro Tools | Ultimate Voice Packs (coming soon), you can add 128 more voices per pack—up to 768 total—to support the largest productions. Get more native power to work alongside multiple Pro Tools | HDX systems, without being tethered to a studio or stage.

Note: HDX will not get a voice increase – maximum voices will remain 256 per card and 768 per system. Pro Tools | HDX does not support Pro Tools | Ultimate Voice Packs—you can increase voice counts by adding HDX cards.


Create more fluidly during playback

With the latest version of Pro Tools, you can now interact with and make updates to tracks and timeline selections during playback without interruption. Freely experiment with different effects, presets, loop points, and more as your music plays on, keeping you in your creative groove:
  • Create or delete tracks
  • Enable or disable tracks
  • Add a preset to a track
  • Insert, move, or remove plugins
  • Insert, move, or remove sends
  • Make changes to your I/O
  • Record-enable and disable tracks
  • Adjust start and end points of a loop or timeline selection
  • Move an entire loop or timeline selection

Double your MIDI track count (Pro Tools & Pro Tools | Ultimate)

Pro Tools now supports 1,024 MIDI tracks (up from 512), giving you the freedom to create colossal, richly orchestrated pieces. With a larger palette of instruments and articulations at your disposal, you can spend more time creating and less time stressing on setup workarounds or having to forgo certain articulations. It’s ideal for film scoring and ardent sample library users, where MIDI tracks can quickly run up into the hundreds.


Name tracks faster (all Pro Tools tiers)

Pro Tools now lets you name new tracks as you create them, providing a new “Name” field in the New Track dialog. This makes it faster and easier to name multiple new tracks in one fell swoop. If you don’t immediately give a new track a name, Pro Tools will automatically create a default name for you, respective of the track type, making it easy to understand what it is if you forget to name one.

Create with the latest Apple products

With support for macOS Mojave (10.14), you can now use Pro Tools on any Mac running Apple’s latest OS to boost your creative performance. At launch, further details on Mojave support will be posted to the System Requirements knowledgebase article.

Get easy multiseat licensing

Need Pro Tools for a large post, broadcast, or media education facility? You can purchase a Pro Tools or Pro Tools | Ultimate Multiseat License, which includes the Avid Complete Plugin Bundle—plus HEAT, Pro Tools | MachineControl, and Pro Tools | DigiLink I/O License with all Pro Tools | Ultimate seats. This server-based PACE floating license not only makes administering licenses faster and easier, it reduces licensing complexity and eliminates the need for iLoks across your facility.

Work with unlimited projects (Pro Tools | First – other tiers already have this feature)

Got a lot more song ideas in your head? You can now create and save as many projects as you want locally on your computer, giving you unlimited creative freedom. You can choose up to any three projects to sync to the cloud for anytime, anywhere access. And cycle through any three projects at a time when you’re ready to work on them—simply select the “Synchronized to Cloud” checkbox of any project to toggle session sync on or off.

No Official word on when this update will be released, but it will be a free update to anyone on a current upgrade plan. Shop Pro Tools at RSPE Audio and make sure you're up to date!

There is an interesting history behind the reason for why we celebrate Basant Panchami. As per a popular belief, goddess Saraswati, who is said to be the deity of knowledge, music, arts, science and technology, was born on this day. Hence people are often seen celebrating Saraswati Puja on Basant Panchami.
