New Avid Pro Tools 11 is now shipping. Pro Tools 11 offers a major upgrade of Avid’s digital audio workstation that provides users with new, high-powered audio and video engines, 64-bit architecture, expanded metering, and direct HD video workflows.

“Pro Tools 11 represents a quantum leap in creative power,” states Chris Gahagan, senior vice president of products and services at Avid. “The newly designed architecture turbo-charges production with more plug-in processing, the ability to run more virtual instruments—and a host of new features—letting users create ambitiously, without holding anything back.”

Key benefits and features of Pro Tools 11 include:

Redesigned Audio Engine & 64-Bit Architecture
New Avid audio engine — Delivers multiple times the processing power of Pro Tools 10 on the same hardware configurations.

64-bit architecture — Exponentially increases the number of simultaneous virtual instruments and the performance to handle the most sophisticated sessions.

Offline bounce — Delivers mixes up to 150 times faster than real time.

Low-latency input buffer — Ensures ultra-low latency record monitoring without sacrificing plug-in performance.

Dynamic host processing — Maximizes plug-in count by reallocating processing resources as needed.

Expanded Metering
Extended standards support — Features a broad range of built-in metering standards, from peak and average to VU and PPM, to maintain adherence to regional broadcast requirements.

Gain reduction — Shows gain reduction for all dynamics plug-ins on each channel.

Direct HD Video Workflows
Built-in Avid video engine — Enables audio post professionals to play and edit a wide range of HD video formats including Avid DNxHD, directly in the Pro Tools timeline without transcoding, using the same core engine as in Media Composer.

Video interface support — Enables monitoring of DNxHD and QuickTime media through Avid Nitris DX, Avid Mojo DX, and other video interfaces.

“In the world of professional mixing, I constantly need more processing power, and the extra power in Pro Tools 11 is exactly what I need,” says Tim Palmer, mixer and engineer for U2, Robert Plant, Ozzy Osbourne, The Cure, and INXS. “I love the new metering and the new sends view is excellent. It is really impressive. Pro Tools 11 is a big leap forward.”
