AVID Announces Pro Tools 11

Since the announce­ment of the lat­est ver­sion of AVID’s indus­try stan­dard DAW Pro Tools, the pro­fes­sional audio com­mu­nity has been buzzing about the new fea­tures and improve­ments.  There are many “under-the-hood” improve­ments including:

  • New Avid Audio Engine
  • 64-bit archi­tec­ture
  • Offline Bounce
  • Low-latency input buffer
  • Dynamic host processing

But at Pro Sound Effects, we are most excited about a slightly less pub­li­cized improve­ment: the work­space browser.  All of our sound effects libraries at Pro Sound Effects have meta­data embed­ded into each file with descrip­tions that help you to find the sounds you’re look­ing for.  In pre­vi­ous ver­sions of Pro Tools, the work­space browser per­formed well when per­form­ing searches on smaller sets of files; how­ever, if search­ing a large sound effects data­base, the per­for­mance of the work­space browser often disappointed.

With Pro Tools 11, AVID promises to deliver bet­ter per­for­mance from the work­space browser, and enhanced “search-as-you-type” fea­tures (much like a Google search).  We are very excited about these new fea­tures as this could vastly improve the work­flow of many audio pro­fes­sion­als that haven’t invested in 3rd party sound library man­age­ment software.

What fea­tures of Pro Tools 11 are you most look­ing for­ward to try­ing out?
