Avid has announced Pro Tools 12.4, a new software update for the industry-standard digital audio software, available to Pro Tools 12 customers with Avid All Access plans.

Avid Pro Tools 12.4

The latest enhancements further deliver on Avid Everywhere™ by enabling audio and music professionals to collaborate and keep the creative process moving.

Avid continues to provide more value to Pro Tools customers with an update focused on the highly anticipated Track Freeze feature to manage, simplify and speed up processor-intensive sessions, and better facilitate collaborative workflows. These improvements build on the previous Pro Tools 12.3 Commit and Track Bounce workflows, enabling audio professionals to work more efficiently and easily prepare projects for mixing, collaborating with others or final delivery.

Between Freeze, Commit, and Track Bounce in Pro Tools 12.4, users have a number of tools to suit any situation and workflow that arises. These include:

  • Track Freeze – a great way to quickly free up DSP resources on the fly to keep the creative process moving, and jump back to make a quick tweak if needed.
  • Track Commit – another great way to free up DSP resources, but users can also edit and make changes to the newly created clip, and choose what happens to the original track.
  • Track Bounce – typically used for making final output renders or stems of tracks for archiving or workflows involving moving audio files to other software platforms.

This combined functionality offers the most powerful implementation of Freeze type workflows of any digital audio workstation on the market.

The new Pro Tools 12.4 update will be available before the end of December and is free of charge to Pro Tools 12 customers with current Avid All Access upgrade plans.

New Pro Tools 12 perpetual licenses include a renewable one-year All Access plan that gives customers access to the latest upgrades as well as a new bundle of creative plug-ins for the whole year. All Access plans also come with subscription licenses and are available for the term of the subscription.
