Create at the speed of inspiration
From numerous new MIDI editing enhancements and retrospective MIDI recording, to the ability to save your favorite effects chains and instrument sounds as track presets, Pro Tools 2018 enables you to keep your creativity flowing.

Build sessions on the fly with Track Presets
Kick time-consuming tasks to the curb. With Track Presets, you can quickly save, catalog, and recall your favorite effects chains, vocal processing, session import criteria, and other track settings—boosting your efficiency—so you can spend more time creating.

Capture performances retroactively
Ever jam along to a song and nail the perfect run before hitting record? With retrospective MIDI recording, Pro Tools goes into “listen” mode even when you’re not recording, so you can retroactively drop those inspired improvisations into a track post performance, without missing a beat.

Take deeper control of your MIDI
Making music has never been easier. With numerous MIDI improvements and enhancements, you can fix and finesse every note to perfection—from transposing and trimming notes with the arrow keys, to building chords and scores faster than ever before.

Comp together the best takes
Build a Target Playlist of the best performances—from multiple playlists—right in Waveform view. It’s ideal when working with grouped tracks, making playlist management and viewing no longer a challenge. You can also now cycle through different takes within a clip using the arrow keys for faster review.

Retire your iLok key
Pro Tools and all Avid audio plug-ins now support iLok Cloud. That means you now have the option of putting your trusty old iLok key to rest and freeing an extra USB port for a MIDI keyboard or audio interface. Or continue using your iLok as before.

Get a better view of your mix
With new EQ curve graphs on all Mix window channel strips, you can see how your settings and automation are impacting each track in real time—even those with multiple EQs (supported plug-ins only). In addition, pre-fader sends and Automation lane view menu entries are now color-coded, making them easier to distinguish.

Start collaborating more easily
Got a session that you’re dying to work on with others? Select File > Start Collaboration, and Pro Tools will automatically save your current session, close it, and reopen it as a project in the cloud, with all tracks converted and ready to be shared.

Get easy network licensing—coming soon
Need Pro Tools for your post facility, broadcast enterprise, or educational institution? You can purchase a multi-seat Pro Tools or Pro Tools | HD Network Site License, which offers many benefits for larger organizations.

Learning curve

Product Review

As we all know Pro-Tools is an amazing way to capture not only pre-productions projects, but capture professional studio quality without breaking the bank. I choose pro-tools for its adaptability and plugins to work along side my Behringer X32 board which runs flawlessly it's amazing. I highly recommend this product to the beginner or the avid engineer and purchasing it from AMS was my only choice for the 15 years, thank you AMS for allowing me to Metal on without breaking the bank!

Switched from Logic to ProTools

Product Review

Took me a little bit to get the hang of it but I recognized a lot of the feature controls. I do notice it sounds fantastic vs my Logic stuff. I still have a lot to learn though.

Industry Standard

Product Review

Not a lot of surprises here. I was disappointed that it went to a yearly subscription model, and that the lifetime license only includes a year of updates, but this is the industry standard DAW. I bought this for home use, but I do like knowing I can go to any studio with my demo tracks, and they'll have the same DAW yo pickup where I left off. Are there problems with it? Of course. Are there better DAWs out there? Probably. But I've used Pro Tools forever, and that comfort level accounts for somethings. The devil you know, right?
