For more than 23 years, Cutting Edge has been one of the nation’s preeminent resources for all things Pro Tools. Therefore, we can speak from experience in telling you that the recent announcement by Avid regarding a full overhaul of the Pro Tools line is one of the most exciting and powerful developments of this world-standard digital audio workstation platform since its inception.
More Flexible to Configure
Avid’s announcement with Pro Tools 12.6 means that you’ll have much more freedom to configure your recording system. You can choose any kind of Avid card or interface, or use a third-party interface along with an HD Native or HDX card. For the most part, Avid’s highly-regarded digital workstation hardware and software tools are now available a la carte, allowing you to put together the perfect system that best fits your specific needs.
Cutting Edge will now be able to offer you significantly lower pricing on Pro Tools HD interfaces, and Avid has moved to a simpler standalone pricing for the Pro Tools software itself. You’ll now be able to buy Pro Tools in one of two formats: with a traditional perpetual license, or on a subscription plan. There are also new upgrade paths for people who want to move up to Pro Tools HD from the standard version of the software.
