PRO TOOLS 12.8 OUT NOW
Avid has released Pro Tools 12.8. Post production mixers will be pleased Dolby Atmos mixing has been added, along with support for Avid Nexis for Pro Tools HD. Pro Tools First users haven’t been forgotten, with Avid Cloud Collaboration now available on the entry-level free version.
Until now, mixing in Dolby Atmos required extra plug-ins and complex routing workflows to accommodate the multi-channel and object-based audio format. Avid and Dolby partnered closely to bring an inclusive suite of Dolby Atmos workflows. New features include built-in Dolby Atmos panning, support for 7.1.2 stems, deep Avid pro mixing control surface integration, advanced automation with the Dolby Rendering and Mastering Unit (RMU), and more.
Support for Avid Nexis shared storage eliminates the time wasted moving files between systems, resulting in faster turnarounds and increased productivity.
The free Pro Tools First version now features Avid Cloud Collaboration so you can make music with your mates from around the globe (or next door) over the Internet. Track Freeze, lets you quickly freeze or unfreeze all plug-ins on a track — or just up to a certain insert — to free up processing power. Integration with Soundbase lets you search for fresh sounds and instantly hear how they fit into any track or project.
