Avid Release Pro Tools 2018.7 Update



Avid has just announced the release of Pro Tools 2018.7, which is available now in your myavid account. This new Pro Tools update adds new features to all three tiers of Pro Tools that improve workflow, speed and efficiency for both music and audio post customers. It will be available to new customers, current subscribers, and users with an active upgrade plan.

What’s New in Pro Tools 2018

Search to Access the Plug-ins and Busses You Need

Forget scrolling through lengthy menus to find the plug-in or bus you need. With tag-like search capabilities integrated into the Inserts, Sends, Inputs, and Outputs menus, you can simply start typing and Pro Tools will instantly display all matching items, enabling you to assign VIs, effects, and busses much faster than before.


Speed Up With Multi-item Menu Selections

Pro Tools now makes it easy to select multiple items in a menu in one fell swoop to boost your workflow speed. Control-click (Mac) or Start-click (Windows) on a track Insert, Send, or I/O mapping slot and select as many items as desired from the context menu. And quickly select multiple view, toolbar, window, and other preferences using checkboxes in pop-over menus.


Relative Grid - Edit Audio and MIDI 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.
