Avid Pro Tools v10.3.4 Fully Working
While almost all DAWs nowadays are suitable for recording instruments, bands and singers, Avid Pro Tools 10 is preferred by many for these tasks since it is simpler and more straightforward to use in many ways. Now you can download it for free from this site together with patch. For over a decade, Pro Tools has been a fixture in professional music studios around the world. It is a complete audio recording, editing and mixing software package, with a range of suitable hardware options also available. As with all modern DAWs, you can make any kind of music with Pro Tools, and it includes a useful selection of virtual instruments plus more than 70 effects processors. It also has good MIDI and notation-editing features. “The new Clip Gain feature is a big deal for those working with real recordings, especially vocals.” Track counts have been upped for v10, which will play back up to 96 tracks at 44.1/48kHz and can record up to 32 tracks simultaneously if your interface has enough inputs. It also provides up to 64 virtual instrument tracks, 512 MIDI tracks, 160 aux tracks, 256 busses and one video track.
While almost all DAWs nowadays are suitable for recording instruments, bands and singers, Pro Tools is preferred by many for these tasks since it is simpler and more straightforward to use in many ways. There used to be major restrictions to getting going with Pro Tools: you couldn’t buy the software by itself, and it would only work with Digidesign or M-Audio hardware. But with v9, introduced a year ago, Avid lifted these constraints. They now offer two versions of the software: high-end Pro Tools HD (which is still only sold with Avid hardware but can be used without it), and standard Pro Tools software (which can be purchased separately or with Avid hardware).
The most useful new feature is Clip Gain. Note that what were formerly referred to as ‘regions’ in Pro Tools are now called ‘clips’, and the Region menu has been renamed accordingly. Each clip can have its own gain setting, independent of the track volume, automation settings or whatever. At the bottom left of each clip, you can display a small fader icon by selecting Clip Gain Info from the View menu. Lots of technical enhancements make Pro Tools 10 much more responsive to use, and generally speed up the workflow. Sessions open faster and fades are now calculated and played back in real-time, so there’s no more waiting for them to get re-built. Automatic Delay Compensation (ADC) now has four times the number of samples (16,384), so you can pile on more latency-inducing plug-ins. You can also record and play back using different bit-depths within the same session, work with interleaved stereo files, use 32-bit floating-point files, and import WAV, AIFF and SDII files within the same session without converting to the session format.
Plug-ins are now referred to as Native or DSP, and there is a new (64-bit ready) plug-in format: AAX (Avid Audio eXtension). This uses the same software code for both AAX DSP and AAX Native versions, meaning less work for developers (and the end of arguments over whether the native and DSP versions of a plug-in sound different). Eventually, when the 64-bit version of Pro Tools appears, RTAS and TDM plug-ins will become obsolete and AAX will be the only plug-in format for Pro Tools.
Music professionals – for whom time is money – will value the workflow and speed enhancements, while serious production hobbyists can finally get to work with the same software used by the top professionals. However, as a full version update, v10 is not impressive, with no ‘big’ or innovative new features. Many of the additions (eg, Clip Gain) are things that we take for granted in many other DAWs. That’s not to say that they’re not genuinely useful and valuable, but it feels more like it should have been a ‘.5’ update, and so the upgrade fee seems excessive.
