Avid Pro Tools + Apple iMac Pro: Tuned To Perform

By in Audio Post, Music Creation, Pro Mixing

Avid Pro Tools has long been the industry-standard DAW for audio production, empowering professionals and aspiring pros to create music, as well as sound for picture, with speed and ease.  And now, it’s tuned to perform on the new Apple iMac Pro.  We know that being on the cutting edge of technology is important to you. That’s why we’ve been working closely with Apple to make sure Pro Tools is the most powerful, efficient, and integrated DAW available. Now, you can do more and create bigger sounding productions even when your customers have increased audio demands.

With the introduction of the new iMac Pro, Apple continues to deliver high performance and excellence. Avid Pro Tools users will enjoy a significant boost in playback performance along with the ability to use more native AAX plug-ins within a session than ever before.

Apple iMac Pro

If you’re looking to produce music with tons of virtual instruments, or need more EQ, compression, and effects on your sub mixes, compare the power that the new iMac Pro delivers over the 27-inch iMac with Retina 5K display (2017) with Core i7 processor:

  • Run up to 36% more plug-ins on an iMac Pro 8-Core model
  • Run up to 62% more plug-ins on an iMac Pro 10-Core model

Over the last few months, Avid’s Pro Tools team has been working closely with Apple to ensure that Pro Tools 12.8.3 performs smoothly, reliably, and effectively on macOS High Sierra 10.13.2. We think you’ll be pleased with the results of our collaboration and the impact the new technology will have on your workflows and productivity.

From news production, sports production, audio editing and music composing, content creation and the applications that drive the industry are something I have used throughout my career. Inspired by powerful and emotive film scores and the behind the scenes orchestration–I now work as Solutions Marketing Specialist (Creative Artists) for Pro Tools at Avid, where I help deliver the very best software in the audio industry to the creators who inspired me from the start. My music creation started when I picked up a guitar in junior high, and continues today through writing cinematic compositions.
