This is great news for all of us Pro Tools users. Avid really got under the hood with this version and brought their aging software up to speed with some of the newer players on the block. Pro Tools still is the industry standard, and the upgrade to Pro Tools 11 now makes us happy to rep our DAW.
I’m not much into the DAW wars, but this levels the playing field quite a bit. Let’s just say that all of us Pro Tools users (which is still the majority on a professional level) will be EXTREMELY happy to hear about this announcement.
A quick overview of the new features:
- Death to DAE!
- 64bit Architecture!
- Offline Bounce – with track freeze!
- Low Latency Input Buffer – zero latency while tracking with plugins!
- Dynamic Host Processing
- New Metering
- Multiple Mini Faders
- HD Video Handling
Now, I’m not really going to get into the details of these… if you’re a Pro Tools user, some of these will already have you drooling. If not, the amazing Russ from Pro Tools Expert has done a very thorough overview of the changes in Pro Tools 11. There’s no need for me to do it all over again.
