Elastic Time makes it easy to change tempo or time on the fly. Change the tempo and timing of loops, music, dialog, and other sound files without cutting up audio. Easily create loops from any audio file — even entire compositions — with the help of powerful tempo and transient analysis. And when you import audio files and loops, they automatically conform to match your session’s tempo. You can even use REX and Acid loops right in Pro Tools.

Pro Tools 7.4 software opens up new avenues for working with video editors, bringing Pro Tools|HD® and Pro Tools LE® users into the Avid® workflow to streamline post-production processes.

Other new features include:

  • Support for Windows Vista Ultimate/Business (32-bit only)
  • Improved ReWire support – Pro Tools 7.4 software now accepts MIDI input (both controller and note data) directly from ReWire applications (such as Reason) for recording to a Pro Tools MIDI or Instrument track.
  • Support for language characters in Unicode. That means you can work in any language supported by Unicode (such as Japanese, French, Greek, Russian, and Hebrew) anywhere in the Pro Tools application for labeling and editing text.

Pro Tools 7.4 software will be available soon for all Pro Tools platforms.
