Product Information

Open yourself to the possibilities. Pro Tools 10 redefines the world’s most popular, most advanced music and audio production platform with a completely re-architected, open version of Pro Tools software, giving you what you asked for—and so much more.

Work with an audio interface—or without. Create bigger, better-sounding mixes with more tracks, Automatic Delay Compensation, and other pro features included as standard. Open your workflow to projects created in other audio and video software—and to the entire Avid Artist Series and Pro Series (formerly Euphonix) console/controller line. With Pro Tools 10, you can compose, record, sequence, edit, and mix the way you want—in more ways than ever.

What's New:

Work the way you want.Get the flexibility of using Pro Tools 9 with your favorite Avid audio interface or third-party Core Audio- or ASIO-compatible interface—or use Pro Tools 9 completely standalone for easy on-the-go creation.
Create bigger, better mixes.Develop larger, more complex projects, with up to 96 or 192* simultaneous audio tracks, 128 instrument tracks, 512 MIDI tracks, 256 internal busses, and 160 aux tracks.
Be more creative with coveted professional tools.Work efficiently and get the best sonic results with Automatic Delay Compensation, multitrack Beat Detective, full Import Session Data dialog, DigiBase Pro, and other separately priced add-ons—now standard.
Collaborate with others more easily.Team up with other creators, editors, and mixers easily—with built-in OMF/AAF/MXF file interchange support, you can exchange projects created in other audio and video software with Pro Tools and vice-versa.
Get more options to grab hold of your mix. Along with C|24 and ICON*, you can now use Avid Artist Series and Pro Series consoles and controllers to enhance your editing and mixing workflow, thanks to added EUCON integration.
Work with picture in more ways.Expand your post production capabilities with powerful features now included as standard, such as the Time Code Ruler, OMF/AAF/MXF interchange, variable stereo pan depths, and updated 7.1 surround panner*.
Boost your power with Complete Production Toolkit 2. Get the Pro Tools HD software feature set**—without a Pro Tools|HD or Pro Tools|HD Native system—with the Complete Production Toolkit 2 option.

* Feature/spec only available in Pro Tools HD 10 software and Pro Tools 9 software with the added Complete Production Toolkit 2 option.
** Some limitations apply.

Record audio and virtual instrument performances with speed and ease using the industry’s most trusted toolset for professional music and audio creation.
Work the way you want.With Pro Tools 10, you get more recording flexibility than ever. Connect mics and instruments and get multitrack audio recording capabilities when you pair Pro Tools software with your favorite Avid audio interface or third-party Core Audio- or ASIO-compatible interface. Record virtual instrument performances through a MIDI keyboard or controller. Or record and create music and audio with just your computer* and the software alone for ultimate portability.
Capture high-quality sound. Whether you’re tracking vocals, guitars, voiceovers, sound effects, or an orchestra, or recording virtual instrument performances, enjoy great-sounding audio without compromise. Capture high-resolution audio—up to 24-bit/192 kHz—when you use an Avid or third-party audio interface with Pro Tools software. And get best-in-class sound with the included groundbreaking virtual instruments.
Nail the right performance.Let your spontaneity shine. Use Loop recording to record multiple takes of a performance on the same track, one after the other, to keep things flowing when you’re in the zone—great for guitar solos or voiceovers. Or create complex drum tracks using it with MIDI Merge, enabling you to build up tracks by merging new beats into the same region with each recording pass.
Punch your way to perfection.Nobody’s perfect, but with Pro Tools you can create seamless performances with nondestructive QuickPunch or TrackPunch**. Quickly fix mistakes in audio tracks as Pro Tools punches in and out of record mode, replacing the questionable section as you perform with the playback. For easier file management (and the truly confident) use DestructivePunch** to maintain a single audio file—no matter how many punches you do.
Slow down and record comfortably.Having trouble keeping up? With Pro Tools, you can pull off technically challenging parts by slowing down the session tempo, recording the performance at a more comfortable pace, and playing it back at normal speed—Elastic Time and Pitch will keep things in tune. You can also create interesting effects recording at normal speed and then playing back at different speeds.

* Pro Tools on Windows requires the presence of an ASIO-compatible soundcard.
** Feature only available in Pro Tools HD 10 software when used with Pro Tools|HD or Pro Tools|HD Native hardware.

Edit and Mix:
Create large, complex projects—with up to 192 voices, 512 audio tracks, 128 instrument tracks, and 512 MIDI tracks—and get the best mixes possible with unrivalled editing and mixing tools.
Stretch your creativity with Elastic Time and Pitch.Freely experiment without the time or effort investment. With Elastic Time, you can change the tempo or timing of any music or sound file—or an entire composition—on the fly, without cutting up a single sample of audio. And with Elastic Pitch, you can fix wrong notes, create harmonies, and transpose regions—in real time—without altering the tempo.
Make changes on the fly.Forget having to manually stop and restart playback to make changes to your mix or configuration—instead, you can make many common changes on the fly in Pro Tools during playback. Create and edit regions, add or remove tracks, copy inserts and sends, change I/O routing, and more—all changes will dynamically update in real time.
Craft sound with precision.Shape and fine-tune your audio, instrument, and MIDI tracks with professional, sample-accurate audio editing tools. Create a flawless performance by comping together tracks from multiple takes. Get more flexibility when importing tracks with the full Import Session Data dialog. Speed up editing with the Smart Tool. Place sounds perfectly in sync with picture. Smooth transitions with crossfades. Everything you need to perfect your tracks is available right from within a single Edit window.
Get where you need to go fast.Instantly navigate to one or more sections within your session to speed up your editing and mixing workflow. Simply set location markers at specific points in the timeline, edit selections, or even a set of track display settings, and you can quickly recall each specific location at any time with a simple keyboard shortcut, ensuring Pro Tools keeps up with your pace.
Join groups for easy editing and rearranging.Easily rearrange songs, edit loops, and make global changes across multiple tracks in one fell swoop by grouping audio and/or MIDI regions together as a Region Group. For more complex sessions with lots of automation, create VCA groups in Pro Tools HD software or Pro Tools 9 with the Complete Production Toolkit 2 option, giving you another level of gain control over groups that already have automation.
Snoop out grooves with multitrack Beat Detective.Start things off on the right beat with Beat Detective, a powerful tool that enables you to analyze and adjust timing across multiple tracks. Quickly tighten up uneven drum performances. Change up the feel or groove of a beat. And keep your rhythm section “in the pocket” by extracting the timing and groove from a drumbeat and applying that groove template to the bass part.
Achieve the best mixes possible automatically.Get great-sounding, phase-accurate mixes with Automatic Delay Compensation (ADC). Mix in stereo or up to 7.1 surround (with Pro Tools HD 9 or Pro Tools 9 and the Complete Production Toolkit 2 option). And automate every element in the Pro Tools environment (rather than “riding the faders” in real time) to add life and ensure the best mix—from track volumes, mute, and panning, to every plug-in parameter.
Get the sounds you want with Pro Tools plug-ins.Create better sounding mixes using the collection of included sound-processing, effects, and instrument plug-ins—you can insert up to 10 plug-ins per track. And expand your creative palette with plug-ins from Avid and our Pro Tools Development Partners for almost anything you can imagine—from instruments to EQs, compressors, reverbs, amp emulators, noise reducers, surround encoding, and more.
Grab control of your mix.You can use a mouse to make changes one… at… a… time, or mix faster and easier using a hardware control surface. Get unrivaled, fully integrated, hands-on Pro Tools control with a choice of Avid control surfaces to fit your needs and budget, including ICON consoles and C|24; full EUCON integration with MC Mix, MC Control, MC Pro, System 5-MC, System 5, and more; and third-party control surfaces.

Music and Post:
Whether you compose music or cut sound to picture, you’ll gain inspiration and speed with advanced tools and workflows designed for professional music creation and audio post production.
No instrument? No problem.Easily create parts for practically any musical instrument using great-sounding virtual instruments, a MIDI keyboard/controller or your mouse, and the built-in Pro Tools MIDI Editor. Get started with the included virtual instruments and audio loops, and expand your arsenal with virtual instruments from Avid and third-party audio designers.
Get inspired with full MIDI and compositional tools.Take your songwriting from sketchpad to final production. Assign key signatures, create and move notes, transpose pitches, build dynamics, rearrange sections, and sculpt every note to perfection in the MIDI Editor. You can also view all MIDI parameters simultaneously for easier editing. And make your mixes shine by adding effects and automation.
Notate music with the Sibelius Score Editor.Compose and print professional music scores using the Sibelius Score Editor, which offers a wide range of standard notation tools. Generate ideas quickly with real-time note placement and editing, and change the meter, key signature, and more on the fly. Add chord symbols and diagrams. Transcribe MIDI parts in real time. Even export sessions as Sibelius (.sib) files for further finessing in Sibelius.
Work and collaborate on music from other audio apps.Collaboration has never been easier. With Pro Tools, you can exchange sessions with any Pro Tools user or studio. But you can also edit, remix, or even revisit projects created in other audio software—such as Logic, Cubase, Digital Performer, Sonar, Live, Reason, and other third-party apps—right in Pro Tools using built-in OMF/AAF/MXF interchange support, ReWire compatibility, or MP3 export.
Streamline the audio/video workflow.Work faster and easier with video using professional tools—now included as standard. Easily import and export projects to and from Pro Tools through built-in OMF/AAF/MXF interchange support. Keep track of all project assets and create and share custom catalogs with the robust DigiBase Pro file management. And seamlessly move and share projects between the editorial and mix stage, with full compatibility, using a single automation system.
Create and cut sound to picture.With Pro Tools, you can create, edit, and mix audio to picture, with sample-accurate precision, using the built-in Time Code Ruler and support for one or up to 64* video tracks. Clean up production sound, and create sound effects and elements that define (or defy) reality. Record voiceovers, Foley, and ADR with perfect frame accuracy. And easily execute and play back edits nondestructively using single-key edit commands.
Mix stereo and surround.Easily create larger-than-life mixes that move across the stereo field using advanced automation and variable stereo pan depths. Need to go bigger? Mix up to 7.1 surround with the updated panner, with true side surrounds, in Pro Tools HD software and Pro Tools 9 with the Complete Production Toolkit 2 option. And get control of huge post sessions with the Satellite Link option, which enables you to sync together multiple Pro Tools|HD rigs and control them as one.
Integrate directly into the Avid video workflow.Speed up workflow efficiency and eliminate the need for rendering effects, transcoding video, or copying Avid video files for audio post. With the Video Satellite option, you can instantly open and play Avid HD or SD video sequences in sync with your Pro Tools session (Pro Tools HD only). And because all video playback is offloaded onto a separate but synced computer, you maintain full Pro Tools audio track counts and processing power.

* Feature/spec only available in Pro Tools HD 9 software and Pro Tools 9 software with the added Complete Production Toolkit 2 option.

Effects and Instruments:
Fuel your creativity with a huge collection of over 70 professional sound-processing plug-ins, virtual instruments, and effects, plus a massive library of high-quality audio loops. Whether you want to make music, record audio, crank up new guitar tones, polish sounds, or master mixes, you’ve got a full palette of options at your fingertips to shape ideas from beginning to end.
