Avid introduces Pro Tools - First and Pro Tools 12
Avid's Pro Tools First is a new, free version of Pro Tools that anyone can register and download. It has 16 mono or stereo audio tracks, 16 Instrument Tracks, 16 MIDI tracks and much more. It's a fully functional version that allows users to work on up to three projects and it has all of the same main recording and editing features as industry-standard Pro Tools. Pro Tools 12 offers easier and more flexible ways of getting your hands on the best tools in the industry and staying on the cutting edge of music and sound creation with flexible licensing options. This release marks a fundamental change in the way Avid will deliver new feature updates - in smaller but faster release dates instead of the traditional 18-month wait between big updates. For new users, it's never been more affordable to use the latest version of Pro Tools - starting at under $25 US a month for an annual subscription. For existing Pro Tools (standard) users, the choice is theirs now on what makes sense for their upgrade schedule, whether to stay on an annual perpetual license or a new monthly subscription license. Plus, all Pro Tools 12 licenses come with a support plan which, in addition to providing software updates/upgrades, offers unlimited web support and either one support phone call per month for Pro Tools or unlimited calls for Pro Tools HD, for the duration of the plan (more).
