Avid Pro Tools Ultimate 2018 - get the sound backed by an industry

Get the most powerful DAW in the audio industry. Advance your workflow and capabilities with Pro Tools Ultimate 2018. Your creative opportunities have never sounded better.

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, Avid Pro Tools Ultimate 2018 enables you to keep your creativity flowing. That’s why top artists, producers, and engineers choose Pro Tools for everything they do. Because when you need to sound your best, nothing delivers like Pro Tools can.

  • 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.

Immerse yourself in Dolby Atmos®. Give audiences the most immersive audio experience in the theater and at home. It's now easier than ever with Avid Pro Tools Ultimate 2018 providing the most integrated and efficient Dolby Atmos mixing workflows of any DAW in the industry.

Collaborate in the cloud. Easily share tracks and work on projects with anyone—anywhere. As if you’re all together in the same studio. And now Avid Cloud Collaboration for Pro Tools is better than ever, enabling you to work with up to 10 collaborators and save projects locally. Create, connect, and collaborate with talent around the world.

Go Pro. How can you make your mixes stand out? Use the same secret weapons studio pros rely on. Avid Pro Tools Ultimate 2018 comes packed with over 60 professional-quality virtual instruments, effects, and sound processing plug-ins, so you can create the best sounding mixes possible. Plus, get access to 25 additional bonus plug-ins—including the Pro Series—and breathe new life into your projects.

No matter what music genre is at hand, you’ll find thousands of possibilities to explore.
  • Turn ideas into masterpieces. Take your songwriting from sketchpad to final production with speed and ease. Create and finesse every virtual instrument or MIDI performance—from tweaking individual notes, to adjusting dynamics, timing, and more. Write music using standard notation tools in the built-in Sibelius Score Editor. You can even export sessions to Sibelius for further finessing.
  • Create with power. When your creativity is flowing, you don’t want your software getting in the way.
