Pro Tools 2024.6: A Power-Packed Update for Music & Post-Production

Avid has just released Pro Tools 2024.6, and it's bringing some serious firepower to your audio workflow. Whether you're a musician, composer, sound designer, or post-production pro, this update has something exciting in store for you. Let's dive into the highlights!

Streamlined Workflow with Expanded ARA 2 Integration

One of the biggest advancements in this release is the expanded ARA 2 (Audio Random Access) integration. This technology lets you use powerful audio editing and manipulation tools directly within Pro Tools, without the hassle of exporting and re-importing audio files.

Pro Tools 2024.6 adds ARA 2 support for six leading plugins:

  • iZotope RX Spectral Editor: Surgical audio repair made easy.
  • Synchro Arts RePitch: Effortless vocal pitch correction.
  • Synchro Arts VocAlign: Tighten up vocal harmonies and dialog.
  • Synchro Arts Revoice Pro: Advanced vocal manipulation and alignment.
  • Sound Radix Auto-Align 2: Automatic audio alignment for multi-mic recordings.
  • Sound Radix Auto-Align Post 2: Post-production dialog alignment.

If you have an active subscription or perpetual upgrade plan, you'll get iZotope RX 11 Spectral Editor and Synchro Arts RePitch Elements included!

Elevate Your Music with New MIDI Effect Plugins

For the music creators out there, Pro Tools 2024.6 introduces two new MIDI effect plugins from Mixed In Key:

  • Captain Chords Lite: This songwriting assistant helps you create inspiring chord progressions and experiment with different keys, inversions, and substitutions. It even includes a library of progressions and rhythms to get you started.
  • Human Lite: Add a human touch to your quantized MIDI performances, injecting subtle variations and imperfections for a more natural feel.

These plugins are available exclusively to subscribers and those with perpetual upgrade plans.

Seamless Collaboration with Media Composer

If you work on sound for picture, you'll appreciate the new session export feature for Avid Media Composer. Pro Tools Ultimate users can now easily share sessions with Media Composer editors, including sample-accurate automation and markers. This simplifies the collaboration process and ensures a smooth transition between audio and video editing.

Additional Enhancements

In addition to these major features, Pro Tools 2024.6 also brings:

  • Dolby Atmos enhancements: Refined workflows for immersive audio mixing.
  • MIDI pitch labels: Visualize note pitches directly in the MIDI editor.
  • Improved Session Data search and import: Find and organize your assets faster.
  • Memory Locations enhancements: Improved workflow for managing memory locations.
