Avid Releases Pro Tools 12.5 with Cloud Collaboration

Avid, the makers of Pro Tools, have announced the release of the newest version of their award-winning DAW, Pro Tools 12.5. Current subscribers should start seeing the update available in their my.avid accounts starting today.

With the new Pro Tools 12.5, you can  expand your creative possibilities—and work opportunities—in whole new ways. Share tracks and collaborate with anyone, anywhere. Work faster with Track Freeze, Commit, and Bounce. And sound better than ever with access to an incredible collection of professional-quality bonus plug-ins. Whether you choose a low cost subscription, or own the software or a system outright, making music and working with sound have never been so easy or fun.

Overview of Pro Tools 12.5 Cloud Collaboration

Cloud collaboration is the long awaited feature for Pro Tools 12 that enables you to connect with other Pro Tools users anywhere in the world to collaborate on any type of creative project in Pro Tools.

You create a Pro Tools Project file, which is similar to a Session file but stored in the cloud, and find and invite people to collaborate right from within Pro Tools, which features a new Artist Chat window. From within Pro Tools 12.5 you can share audio and MIDI tracks, edits, mix changes, in fact anything you do in Pro Tools.

You can work with up to two other collaborators on any Project at the same time, though you can cycle as many people in and out of a Project as needed. You can collaborate in near real time with others or create offline and upload updates. All Project files and associated assets are stored in your own personal and secure cloud storage space, so you can access your Projects anywhere you have an Internet connection.
