Amsterdam, Netherlands (September 9, 2016)—At IBC 2016, Avid has introduced new features with the release of Pro Tools 12.6 together with new purchase and subscription options for the Pro Tools | HD toolset.
The new Clip Effects and layered editing features in Pro Tools 12.6 make it possible to edit and prepare mixes faster, according to the company. Additionally, audio professionals can accelerate production using automatic playlist creation and selection using shortcut keys. The release is also said to improve “in-the-box” dubber workflows requested by the most prominent facilities in the world.
For the first time, customers can buy or subscribe to Pro Tools | HD software as a stand-alone product, independent of Pro Tools | HD hardware bundles. Facilities can now add additional seats for offline editing tasks that do not require high channel counts, DSP acceleration or sync.
The components that comprise a Pro Tools | HD system—Pro Tools | HD software, HDX or HD Native card, and HD Series audio interface—are now available à la carte, says Avid.
Pro Tools 12.6 and Pro Tools | HD Subscription and Perpetual license will be available later in September 2016.
