Pro Tools to Pro Tools Ultimate Trade-Up
Pro Tools® | Ultimate is ideal for audio and post pros who needs maximum track counts, performance, and surround sound.
Apply real-time effects to clips
Tweak the sound of a clip without affecting the entire track. With Clip FX, you can apply real-time EQ and dynamics to a single clip or clip group on your timeline, enabling you to have different settings across multiple clips on a track. This gives you more precision control when working with multiple clips of related audio, such as dialog or voiceovers. This feature is available in Pro Tools® | Ultimate, though Pro Tools supports Clip FX playback.
Re-record in the box (requires Pro Tools)
Expedite audio post dubbing "in the box" with perfect click-free punch-ins. Using Pro Tools® | Ultimate and any punch mode, the system calibrates and time aligns your stems so there's no latency or audio artifacts when punching in and out of tracks or switching inputs. Both in the actual recording and what you hear live in real time.
Edit layers of audio more easily
If you work in post, positioning countless audio clips to picture, you probably have multiple clips that overlap on a track. With new enhancements to the way Pro Tools handles such clips, editing audio is easier than ever. Clear only overlaps. Heal clips when removing one that overlaps two. Trim the starts and ends of two overlapping clips. Modify behaviors. And more.
Position clips more precisely with clip transparency
If you’re a sound editor or designer, precision and speed are paramount when it comes to aligning and editing clips. Now clips take on a translucent appearance whenever you move and overlap one over another, giving you better visual clarity of their context. This enables you to quickly align the waveforms of a new audio clip to the visual cues of an existing one’s waveforms with much better precision and ease.
Save time with batch fades
Fading tracks is one of the fundamentals of audio editing. But it can be tedious and time consuming when editing thousands of audio clips. With new fade enhancements, you can speed through repetitious tasks and gain more time to focus on the creative aspects of your mix. Create and tweak presets for fade ins, fade outs, crossfades, and batch fades. Recall presets directly from your keyboard or control surface. And control fade settings independently when working with batch fades.
