Introducing Pro Tools 2018, the latest version that comes packed with new features that enable you to work smarter, faster, and create at the speed of inspiration.

With more flexibility to release new features, you’ll start to see more frequent workflow improvements and enhancements throughout the year. With the launch of Pro Tools 2018 comes numerous new MIDI editing enhancements, including with retrospective MIDI recording, the ability to save your favorite effects chains and instruments sounds as track presets, improved mixing UI enhancements, and so much more.

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.

Well worth the money
Product Rating
What is your opinion of this product?
This is Pro Tools. That should be enough a review for anyone. I know the model of paying for a yearly license instead of paying once to own the software turns some people off, but that's the way all software companies are going now. I don't love that form of buying either, but it allows them to make better improvements on every new version and this version delivers. Reliability is great. Flexibility has improved a lot. Work flow. Compatibility with a wider variety of hardware, cheaper hardware is a big plus for me. All and all a great version.

A great DAW , easy workflow
What is your opinion of this product?
I am very happy with the results I get in pro tools compare to Logic Pro X. The stock plugins are better quality , the dynamics have more options to suit my needs and I get way better workflow out of this DAW . There is a learning curve to get around, like in any other software. The sound quality is very professional , and does work with third party plugins which is a plus for me .

Nothing but the best!
What is your opinion of this product?
I use other DAWs for sketching ideas sometimes, but my projects always come together finalized in Pro Tools. It’s got a world class work flow and is feature packed. The MIDI editor is a dream these days compared to past versions. You can’t go wrong with Pro Tools!

One of the best decisions for my music.
What is your opinion of this product?
I've always knew PT was the standard, but it wasn't until I installed it that a new world of music opened to my ears. I will recommend it to all of my friends. Everything is spectacular with version 12.

Really disappointed
What is your opinion of this product?
I had a previous version 8 of this daw that came with my usb mic free...I loved it back then ..I thought I had the free version of a industry standard daw so it naturally would have bugs and not as many plugins ..but now that I finally pay 600 bucks for the new updated version ..I am very disappointed with the amount of bugs in this software and totally upset that i can't edit or create video on this daw..
