It's Here - Pro Tools 11

Avid just announced the new Pro Tools 11, and like all new versions, there's a lot of like as well as a bunch of "got ya's." The video below explains everything new in great depth, but here are just a few of the new features.
  • It's newly coded from the ground up with a brand new audio engine, which means you'll have to buy all your plugins again.
  • It's 64 bit, which means that it'll be able to access much more RAM. That means it will handle many, many more tracks, plugins and virtual instruments with ease so it'll be a lot faster.
  • It now has offline bouncing that's up to 150 times faster than the way it does it now. What took them so long? This has been on other DAWs for ages.
  • Much improved metering with more precise scaling and ballistics, including peak and average VU and PPM meters.
  • The inclusion of the Avid Video Engine so that you can play and edit video directly from within PT.
  • Low-latency input buffering, so you can more easily record while using plugins.
It doesn't seem like a lot that's earth-shattering. It's going to cost you though, and in a world of so many other quality DAWs, that could be a deciding factor. The prices are:

Pro Tools 11 Software: $699
Pro Tools 10 to 11 upgrade: $299
Pro Tools 9 to 11 upgrade: $399
Pro Tools HD 10 to 11 upgrade: $599
Pro Tools HD 9 to 11 upgrade: $999
