Avid Pro Tools 2021.6 has M1 Mac support, and lets you create bigger projects and more


Avid has released Pro Tools 2021.6, a summer update for the DAW that brings the Hybrid Engine to HDX systems, adds support for M1 Macs and offers more I/O, tracks and voices.


Avid says that the 2021.6 update creates “the most powerful Pro Tools systems we’ve ever made”


The Hybrid Engine was launched alongside the Pro Tools | Carbon audio interface, and has now been brought to Pro Tools HDX systems. It is designed to let you switch between native and DSP processing on a track-by-track basis, giving you a best-of-both worlds approach and the ability to run bigger sessions more smoothly.


The Pro Tools | Ultimate now supports 2,048 voices and audio tracks at all sample rates, from 128 to 28kHz. That is five times more than the previous version. What’s more, the maximum number of I/O channels has been doubled from 32 to 64.


The standard Pro Tools, now supports a maximum of 256 mono or stereo audio tracks.


In addition, the update means that you can now run Pro Tools | First, Pro Tools, Pro Tools | Ultimate and Pro Tools | Carbon systems on M1 Macs. Other enhancements include the option to customize the dark and classic UI themes, QuickTime and file support improvements, and automatic delay compensation when sidechaining tracks.
