Product Description
Avid Pro Tools 12 Retail (Not Academic) Edition :

Introducing Pro Tools 12, the easiest way to collaborate with friends.


iLok2 required to license this product.

For a new Pro Tools 12, do you wish to purchase a perpetual non-expiring license, or start an annual subscription?

There are two ways to get a new Avid Pro Tools 12.
  1. For $599 buying a Perpetual License is the ideal solution for users who want to own a non-expiring perpetual Pro Tools license. It ensures you will always have Pro Tools, and gives you the flexibility to upgrade in the future with an annual upgrade plan ($99), or by just buying upgrades as needed.
  2. Or for $299 buy an annual Subscription which offers a lower initial cost, and offer free upgrades as well as the Plug-in and Support Plan. This includes a one year subscription license of Pro Tools, an iLok2, free upgrades, and the Plug-in and Support Plan. This is a subscription, so when it expires you cannot use Pro Tools until you purchase another subscription.

To upgrade your Academic Pro Tools Perpectual License select:

  1. For $99 select the Annual Renewal Upgrade Plan for Pro Tools if your Perpectual Upgrade Plan has not expired. This is a one year plan that can be added to any PT12.x or newer perpetual license. The plan includes technical support, the Space AAX convolution reverb plug-in, and 16 high quality AAX plug-ins inspired by the Avid Eleven Rack.
  2. Or for $299 select the Annual Reinstatement Plan for Pro Tools if your Perpectual Upgrade Plan has expired or to get a new Upgrade Plan. It is likely that this will be the last year that the Reinstatement Plan will be offered. This upgrades you to the current version of Pro Tools and provides perpetual, non-expiring upgrades of Pro Tools for one year. If you are not on a current Pro Tools upgrade plan, then this is what you need. You can upgrade from one of the following; Pro Tools Academic 9, 10, or 11, Pro Tools Express (bundled with Mbox, Fast Track Solo, or Fast Track Duo only), Pro Tools M-Powered 6–8 or Pro Tools MP 9.

Connect and collaborate in the cloud—just added
Imagine being able to work on a session with friends, colleagues, or your favorite artist or producer with ease—no matter where they are in the world. You can with Avid Cloud Collaboration for Pro Tools. Record, edit, and mix projects with others as if you’re all working together in the same studio. And find new collaborators through the online Avid Artist Community.

Track Freeze, Commit, and Bounce—just added
Processor-hungry virtual instruments can impact system performance. And sharing sessions used to require that everyone have the same plug-ins. No more. With Track Freeze, you can quickly freeze or unfreeze all plug-ins on a track—or just up to a certain insert—to free up processing power. Track Commit is similar except it renders the track (or an edit selection) permanently. And with Track Bounce, you can render out stems for fast and easy file delivery.

Experience power, performance, and versatility

With Pro Tools, you get even more pro-level features and capabilities you need to quickly create and deliver professional-quality music and audio mixes. Get unrivaled processing power to create without bounds. Record more easily with input monitoring. Mix smarter with Track Freeze, VCA masters, and extended metering features. Get smoother performance and highly responsive recording and playback with the extended Disk Cache. And with the Avid Video Engine, you can play HD video right in the Pro Tools timeline.

Create with Pro Tools in more ways than ever

You now have more choice in how you acquire and use Pro Tools. Get the power and premium sound quality you need to create the best sounding mixes with a Pro Tools or Pro Tools | HD hardware/software system. Create in the studio, at home, or on the go with just Pro Tools software. Access Pro Tools only when you need it through a low-cost monthly or annual subscription.

Work with sound for picture

Pro Tools is more than just sound—you can work with audio for movies, television, and other visual media too. Play HD video and Avid DNxHD sequences right in the timeline. Edit with precision using the built-in Timecode Ruler. Clean up sound using the included plug-ins. Create sound effects that define (or defy) reality. Work easily with AudioSuite-rendered clips. And record and edit voiceovers, Foley, and ADR with perfect frame accuracy. You can even share audio mixes with Media Composer editors through AAF.

Sound your best with bonus plug-ins

Get access to additional plug-ins through your Pro Tools subscription or upgrade
plan. Add more life and realism to vocal and instrument tracks with Space, a high- quality convolution reverb plug-in. Get the sounds of some of the most coveted classic stompboxes with access to 16 Eleven Effects plug-ins. And with Pro Tools | HD, gain access to Avid’s most coveted plug-ins, including all five Pro Series plug-ins, plus ReVibe II, Reverb One, and Eleven.

Access upgrades, support, and more
All Pro Tools subscriptions, upgrades, and crossgrades now come with an even better upgrade and support plan. Not only do you get access to all new Pro Tools releases and expert help throughout your annual plan or subscription, but also to an amazing bonus collection of high-quality effects and sound-processing plug-ins—at no additional cost. Or choose a lower cost Annual Upgrade Plan for Pro Tools and get all upgrades for one low annual price.
