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 | UltimatePro 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.
