With Pro Tools, you can make music with up to 768 audio and 1,024 MIDI tracks and use hundreds of plugins to create your sound. All you need is your imagination.
Compose with MIDI and notation
Nudge notes. Layer sounds. Switch instruments. Transpose parts. The flexible MIDI Editor makes it easy to create and perfect parts. You can even capture MIDI performances and improvisations retroactively. Or view MIDI as music notation in the Sibelius-style Score Editor.
Build up productions on the fly
With Track Presets, you can quickly save, catalog, and recall your favorite effects chains, instrument sounds, vocal processing, and other track settings. It eliminates tedious tinkering, so you can spend more time creating.
Jumpstart your sound with loops, samples, and VIs
Create the parts you need with a wide variety of virtual instrument sounds at your fingertips. Pro Tools music software comes with over 5 GB of high-quality sounds, so you can find the perfect beat, orchestral hit, or piano tone. Plus, you can browse and experiment with loops, samples, and sound effects in context with your tracks.
Get industry-leading audio editing
Pro Tools is renowned for its powerful editing toolset, enabling you to manipulate and perfect nearly every aspect of your audio and MIDI tracks. From trimming clips and reshaping sounds with a single click, to comping together a flawless performance, you can optimize any track with precision.
Edit intelligently with the Smart Tool
Perform multiple types of edits quickly and precisely with a single tool. The Smart Tool provides instant access to every editing tool, changing functions based on your cursor position, eliminating manual tool switching.
Fix timing and pitch with Elastic Audio
Easily tighten up and perfect performances without impacting your original sound. With Elastic Time, you can switch the entire session tempo, change a track’s timing to sit “in the pocket,” or beat-match audio for remixing—without affecting the pitch. Plus, make bad notes sound pitch-perfect or completely warp a track’s tuning to create something unique with Elastic Pitch.
Comp together a perfect performance
Easily comp together multiple takes of a recording to create a single flawless performance. Select portions of a performance and easily cycle through alternative takes. Or, use the Target Playlist to select the best performances from multiple playlists in Waveform view. It’s a great way to explore different improvisations to hear what works best.
Bring your mix to life
From professional-quality plugins and advanced metering, to the best mixing automation in the industry, you have the award-winning sounds and control you need to create and deliver your best mixes. Whether working in stereo, 5.1 surround, or Dolby Atmos, Pro Tools makes the entire experience easy.
Discover Dolby Atmos for music mixing
Automate volumes, pans, plugin settings, and more to create balanced mixes quickly. Isolate instruments. Punch up sounds. Create and alter effects. Add movement. Then, change up dynamics and intensity to bring everything together. It’s the easiest, most creative way to handle big complex mixes, without requiring manual performance.
Mix creatively and fluidly during playback
With non-stop production, you can stay in your creative groove. Create and delete tracks, add and change plugins, switch presets, adjust loop points and more as your music plays. Freely experiment with 115 different plugins, including emulations of classic hardware EQs, dynamics, and reverb units, without interruption.
Freeze tracks to optimize playback
Mix plugin-heavy sessions with ease. Track Freeze lets you temporarily render all plugin processing on a track with a click of a button to free up CPU power, providing smoother playback for writing and editing automation. It also enables cloud collaborators to hear your mix the way you intend it, without the same plugins. You can then unfreeze tracks to make changes.
