San Francisco, CA (October 31, 2012)—Avid announced at AES that it will integrate Gobbler, a purpose-built cloud solution for digital media creators, into Pro Tools, providing users with the ability to exchange and back up Pro Tools sessions.
The Avid and Gobbler integration will enable users to send files, mixes or entire sessions directly from the Pro Tools interface. Users will be able to automatically locate and backup local Pro Tools sessions to the cloud; locate, backup and send all the media files a session requires, regardless of where they are stored; have continuous backup of sessions; and more. The system will not have file-size limits and sessions can be sent to anyone.
Until full integration is launched, Gobbler will continue to support backup and transfer of Pro Tools sessions, and currently offers users free 5GB accounts, available at its site, with larger plans available on a monthly or annual basis.
