Avid Pro Tools Gets Boost on New iMac Pro

Avid have announced today a new version of Pro Tools® optimized for High Sierra 10.13.2, and have also introduced new video file support for Avid post-production workflows, improving the power and flexibility of the Audio Post production.

The new Pro Tools version: 12.8.3,  is powered by MediaCentral, the Avid platform which is claimed to be the industry’s most open, tightly integrated and efficient platform designed for media. This version gains a "significant boost in playback performance" with the new iMac Pro.

Additionally, Pro Tools now enables more native AAX plug-ins within each session than it did previously, enabling users to produce music with a greater number of virtual instruments and increase effect, EQ, compression, etc on their sub mixes.

Users can run up to 36% more plug-ins on an 8-core iMac Pro and up to 62% more on a 10-core model, compared to the 27-inch iMac with Retina 5K display (2017) with Core i7 processor.

“The latest version of Pro Tools is packed full of enhancements,” said Rob D’Amico, director of Pro Audio Market Solutions at Avid. “Pro Tools’ Mac support underscores Avid’s commitment to giving the creative community the freedom to take full advantage of Apple’s most powerful Mac ever to deliver the most powerful, efficient and integrated DAW for audio post production and music creation.”
