Avid Announce Long Awaited Pro Tools 11

Today Avid announced that it will be releasing the new Pro Tools 11, a version that sees Pro Tools redesigned from the ground up.  The all new Pro Tools 11 boasts a new and powerful audio engine, 64-bit architecture, off-line bouncing, numerous metering options as well as a host of features long requested by Pro Tools users.

As Avid is a listed company new products must be available within 3 months of product announcement, so Pro Tools 11 is rumored to be ready to ship sometime in May 2014.

In there own words:

Avid® today announced Avid Pro Tools® 11, a major upgrade of its industry-leading digital audio workstation that redefines music and audio production for today’s workflows. This latest version enables audio professionals to take on the most demanding productions with new, high-powered audio and video engines, 64-bit architecture, expanded metering, and direct HD video workflows.

“Pro Tools 11 represents a quantum leap in creative power,” said Chris Gahagan, senior vice president of Products and Services at Avid. “The newly designed architecture turbo-charges production with more plug-in processing, the ability to run more virtual instruments—and a host of new features—letting users create ambitiously, without holding anything back.”

Pro Tools 11 delivers the features, performance, and workflows professionals need to take on today’s increasingly complex sessions and tighter timelines. Key benefits and features include:

  • Fully redesigned audio engine and 64-bit architecture
    • New Avid Audio Engine — Delivers multiple times the processing power of Pro Tools 10 on the same hardware configurations.
    • 64-bit architecture — Exponentially increases the number of simultaneous virtual instruments and the performance to handle the most sophisticated sessions.
    • Offline bounce — Delivers mixes up to 150 times faster than real time.
    • Low-latency input buffer — Ensures ultra-low latency record monitoring without sacrificing plug-in performance.
    • Dynamic host processing — Maximizes plug-in count by reallocating processing resources as needed.
  • Expanded metering
    • Extended standards support — Features a broad range of built-in metering standards, from peak and average to VU and PPM, to maintain adherence to regional broadcast requirements.
    • Gain reduction — Shows gain reduction for all dynamics plug-ins on each channel.
  • Direct HD video workflows
    • Built-in Avid Video Engine — Enables audio post professionals to play and edit a wide range of HD video formats including Avid DNxHD®, directly in the Pro Tools timeline without transcoding, using the same core engine as in Media Composer®.
    • Video interface support — Enables monitoring of DNxHD and QuickTime media through Avid Nitris® DX, Avid Mojo® DX, and other video interfaces.

“In the world of professional mixing, I constantly need more processing power, and the extra power in Pro Tools 11 is exactly what I need,” said Tim Palmer, mixer and engineer for U2, Robert Plant, Ozzy Osbourne, The Cure, and INXS. “I love the new metering and the new sends view is excellent.  It is really impressive. Pro Tools 11 is a big leap forward.”

  1. 400$ to upgrade from Pro-tools 9 to 11? What a joke! I could buy logic pro and studio one at that price. I understand that people who work’s at studio with avid hardware have to “stick”with pro-tools, but i think the other 90% who are like me, and who mix only in the box should seriously consider other’s options:) Ok i admit it, i now only use logic pro, personally i only ran into trouble everytime tried to mix with pro-tools ( crash etc) Plus, i still did not digest the pro-tools 10 episode:) I really hate avid way of handling customer, i felt rob and left over too many time… 400$ for an uppgrade… come on! 🙂 Offline bounce and 64 bits? It’s about time!:)

  2. PT’s advantage was that it was the first DAW that captured the professional community’s imagination. It therefore became the de facto industry standard with few challengers. Since then it has lagged behind in many ways, finally introducing features in PT 11 that have been standard in many other DAWs, i.e. offline bouncing and 64bit. Like Pedro said, the new features do not appear to be revolutionary, but more a kind of ‘getting PT up to speed’ with what other DAW’s already offer. My suspicion is that Avid are hoping their position as the professional’s tool of choice will not be eroded, as they lay the groundwork with PT11 for future feature roll outs. They may also be hoping that issues such as session compatibility and the sheer force of habit will keep enough people on the PT platform for long enough to see the merits of upgrading and renewing a long term commitment to the PT platform.

  3. Hey Stone! Nice article and really good news in my opinion.
    I thought I could add a note regarding upgrading from PT9 to 11. According to Sweetwater if you purchase the upgrade to PT 10 ($299) after April 7, 2013 then you’ll get a FREE upgrade to PT11!
    Keep up the good work:-) Blessings to everyone!
