Avid Pro Tools 11 - Professional Audio Software (Student Edition - Activation Card and iLok)
Pro Tools 11 from Avid is the next incarnation of the industry standard software that is now based on a 64-bit architecture. While there are several important enhancements, this one feature finally allows the software to access as much RAM as is present on a computer system, over the previous 4 GB limit. What this means in particular is that virtual instruments that contain large sample file bases can now be fully loaded, while the number of instruments that can be simultaneously available in a session is also increased.
Another major feature that many have clamored for is the offline bounce function. Now preparing intermediary or final mixes is much faster using a simple command. Sound quality is maintained throughout due to the time-stamped automation and multiple files in different file formats can be created simultaneously. Record input monitoring has been enhanced with ultra-low latency even when routing through plug-ins. And those working with audio for picture will appreciate the ability to play Avid DNxHD files and other HD formats directly within the timeline without transcoding.
A wide variety of plug-ins are included with the software, as are six virtual instruments. The software not only works with the company's interfaces, but since version 9, with any Core Audio or ASIO compliant interface. That means that working on an approved Apple portable computer or Windows-based device (requires an ASIO soundcard) allows for convenient portable recording or editing. Along with the recommendation that any system have as much RAM as possible, the software now requires the use of an iLok 2 authorization key if one is not provided, as the original iLok is no longer supported.
