Avid refreshes its Pro Tools DAW



Avid has unveiled a new subscription pricing structure for its Pro Tools DAW, with a new offering aimed specifically at artists who are just starting out.


Avid refereshes it’s Pro Tools line-up, adding a $10/month Artist plan, a drum machine and a new synth


You can now choose from three subscription tiers.


The subscription tier – known as Pro Tools Artist – costs $10 a month or $99 a year, and promises “everything needed to make beats, write, record, and mix studio-quality music”. You get not only the DAW but also thousands of loops and more than 100 plugins.


And, you are entitled to use 32 audio tracks, 32 instrument tracks and 64 MIDI tracks, but this may be enough for many people.


The next level up – Pro Tools Studio – cost $40 a month or $299 a year. This enables you to record more tracks and offers surround and Dolby Atmos support, while more advanced automation features are included, as well. Current Pro Tools subscribers and perpetual licence customers with active plans will automatically transition to Pro Tools Studio.


Lastly, at the top end – Pro Tools Flex, a $100 a month/$999 a year tier for professionals. This unlocks an enhanced version of Pro Tools Ultimate and provides additional content and third-party software.


Active Pro Tools Ultimate subscribers will receive the full Pro Tools Flex subscription bundle, while Pro Tools Ultimate perpetual licence customers with active plans will receive the Pro Tools Ultimate software enhancements.


All three subscription plans include Avid’s two new Pro Tools virtual instruments: GrooveCell and SynthCell. GrooveCell is a drum machine and sequencer for easy beat creation, while SynthCell is a similarly simple polyphonic synth.


All Pro Tools subscribers will also have access to SoundFlow, a workflow automation platform.


You can find out more and compare the new Pro Tools subscriptions on the Avid website.
