Space convolution reverb yields realistic acoustic environments

Avid's Space plug-in creates everything from massive concert halls to dense, old-time plate reverbs, offering the most realistic ambient sounds you could ask for in up to 5-channel surround formats. Space's Snapshots Mode jumps between 10 completely different reverb settings, saving your processor power by automating a single instance of the plug-in. And thanks to Space's convenient impulse library browser, auditioning reverbs is a piece of cake.

Eleven delivers authentic guitar amp sounds

As guitarists, we're always looking for the amp that will go to "eleven." Eleven does just that, but keeps it all within the Pro Tools realm. Eleven picks up where other amp-modeling solutions have left off, delivering the same sonic details that give legendary amps their unique sound: cabinet resonance, speaker cone breakup, power amp sag, ghost notes, and more. Plug your trusty axe into Eleven and turn your Pro Tools rig into the ultimate guitar tone machine.

Stompbox effects add character to your tracks

Inspired by the Eleven Rack, the 16 stompbox-style effects included in the Avid Annual Upgrade and Support Plan for Pro Tools | HD conjure textures that will imbue your guitar tracks with excitement. Of course, these effects are equally capable of adding grit, space, modulation, and overdrive to vocals and other instruments as well.

Avid Pro Series plug-ins provide pro-quality processing

Avid Pro Series plug-ins furnish you with pro-quality compression, expansion, limiting, and more. Pro Compressor gives your Pro Tools rig the high-quality dynamics control you need to polish up your tracks. Pro Expander takes a unique approach to dynamics, infusing your mixes with more energy. Pro Limiter not only pumps up the loudness of your mix, it also makes it ready for broadcast. Pro Multiband Dynamics is an impressive new dynamics-shaping tool that applies various dynamics processing across your audio in four independent frequency bands. Pro Subharmonic enhances low frequencies in a way that's both impressively powerful and perfectly musical.

Fantastic Job Sweetwater!

Thanks a lot. I am actually an european customer who's bought many Pro Tools Upgrades from Sweetwater since it has been downloads only. It´s a lot more affordable than from the Avid store here in my country and Sweetwater have proven to be really great, reliable and supportive. Anyway this time they surpassed themselves. Although there was kinda problem with my order I received my activation code within a few hours only, put it in on the Avid site, done. Everything worked perfectly well and super fast. Fantastic job. Thanks. As for the PT renewal there isn´t a lot to say about. Avid have changed their business model and not everybody does approve. We just have to decide if we want to receive updates in the future or if we just want stay with the (fully working ) current version only. If we want to receive the updates and even upgrades to the next higher main version of Pro Tools (all for this annual payment) we will have to invest the money. That´s just how it is.

great

I absulutly love it
3/5

Not Great.

Not "Really Good" either. I'm a Pro Tools user of almost 20 years, HD user of more than a decade. Trained and Certified since 2001. etc. etc. Long story short, we are hemophiliac turnips being juiced by Avid. Right now, Avid is holding my career ransom for somewhere around $500 annually. Thank goodness for tax deductions, but still... Version 12.4 is buggy as all get out on El Capitan on a Ram-maxed 8 core Mac Pro. There is simply no excuse for releasing software not ready for a year-old OS, and then "granting" long time customers the "privilege" of subscription-model buggery. Still, nothing comes close to this software in pro audio workflow for post AND music production, so I'll "grant" Avid three stars, along with the realization that my best bet for emotionally accepting audio as a career choice is investing my shrinking retirement budget into shares of the Reckitt Benckiser Group. (they recently purchased KY Jelly from Johnson & Johnson)
Music background: 20 year Audio Pro..but thinking of becoming a farmer.
2.5/5

Pro Tools mandatory upgrade

I would give Pro Tools software 4 stars but the price for the annual upgrade is way too much for so little. Seems like many professionals are switching to Logic Pro and other suitable DAWs. If Avid doesn't offer more this year for incremental updates and non essential features then I think it's time to move on.
2.5/5

Avid's hand is always in my pocket - since 1989

Pro Tools HD is a stable, mature, elegant workspace. I have been "in" since running Sound Tools on my Mac SE in 1989 and it will likely be my DAW of choice for the rest of my life, due in no small part to the muscle memory of the keyboard shortcuts. I come from a world where a pair of Otari MTR90's and a large automated console were entry level tools to make a commercially viable record, so I don't begrudge the audio equipment manufacturer their pound of flesh. I am more than willing to pay for an upgrade. However, I want to choose to, based on features and audio quality, and then OWN it. While I now own Pro Tools HD12.5, the Avid plug-ins that came with LAST YEAR's upgrade are no longer available in my sessions unless I "choose" this year's upgrade. That's a pile of (enter expletive of choice here). Make no mistake, I will continue to use PTHD and appreciate their core software, but when I choose a plug-in on a session that I MIGHT want to open in a year, it will come from McDSP, Waves, Soundtoys or the like - not Avid. BTW, 2.42 and 6.92 killed it... and 12 is almost that stable.
