NEW! Features include:

Control Pro Tools | Carbon
Control Pro Tools | Carbon mic preamps remotely. Get deeper integration with Native Instruments Komplete Kontrol MIDI keyboards. Further customize the Dark and Classic UI themes for accessibility and fun with the new high contrast mode and background colors. Plus, Pro Tools will now automatically downmix when routing between different track widths, saving time and minimizing complexity. Discover all this and more in the latest version of Pro Tools.

Komplete Kontrol
Move seamlessly between tracks and get instant hands-on control of a wide range of plugins with your Komplete Kontrol MIDI keyboard. Now, Komplete Kontrol will automatically sync with the selected track in your Pro Tools session. Plus, you can control many Pro Tools functions directly with Komplete Kontrol's buttons, knobs, and the 4D encoder.

Remotely control your Pro Tools | Carbon Preamps
Conveniently adjust, save, and recall Pro Tools | Carbon preamp settings remotely, either from your Pro Tools session in the Edit and Mix windows or using your Avid control surface. This means you can place your Carbon interface where it makes the most sense in your studio and without the need to remember preamp settings for each session.

Gain More Track Routing Flexibility
You can now route outputs and sends to nearly any bus, regardless of the width, eliminating the need to create sub-paths. Pro Tools will automatically downmix or map the signal. This means, for example, you can route a 5.0 track directly to a 7.1.2 bus, or easily send surround tracks to stereo effects or headphones.

Pro Tools UI Personalization
Pro Tools gives you unprecedented control to make the UI your own. Now, you can dial-in custom background colors and toggle on high contrast UI elements, in addition to having control over nearly every element in both Classic and Dark themes. This means you can further fine-tune the UI to meet accessibility needs or personalize your work environment for different times of day or even different moods.

S upport for HDX, HD Native, and AVE on M1 Macs
With the October 2021 release, you can now run Pro Tools | HDX and HD Native systems as well as the Avid Video Engine on the latest Macs that use Apple’s new M1 silicon processors.
