Avid today announced Pro ToolsÂ® version 9 â€” a groundbreaking evolution of the industry's most popular music creation and audio production solution. Leveraging a next-generation architecture, version 9 of Pro Tools offers customers the unprecedented choice to work with Avid audio interfaces, third-party audio interfaces, or no hardware at all when using the built-in audio capabilities of a Mac or PC. This first-ever software-only option for Pro Tools delivers customers the most open, flexible and feature rich version in history, while also providing top professional features customers have requested. Also, new support for the Avid EUCONâ„¢ open Ethernet protocol now enables customers to expand control surface options to include Avid's Artist Series and Pro Series audio consoles and controllers (formerly known as EuphonixÂ® consoles and controllers).
Pro Tools customersâ€”from the aspiring enthusiast to the professionalâ€”can now create sophisticated, great sounding mixes, whether they're at home, on the road, or working in a large facility using an open, flexible workflow for enhanced collaboration and creativity.
Customers can design their workflow of choice using the new Pro Tools software-only configuration with their favorite Avid or third-party audio interfaceâ€”or standaloneâ€”and with Avid Artist and Pro Series controllers. The benefits to users include:
