Avid Pro Tools 12 In Depth
Get Track Freeze, Commit, and Bounce
Processor-hungry virtual instruments can impact system performance with plug-in-heavy mixes. And sharing sessions used to require that everyone all have the same plug-ins used in the session. But no more. With Track Freeze, you can quickly freeze an entire audio, instrument, or auxiliary track to free up processing power. It also makes sharing sessions easy, as it eliminates requiring plug-in parity. You can freeze all plug-ins on the track, or just up to a certain insert. And if further editing is needed, simply unfreeze the track with the click of a button. Track Commit is similar except it renders the track (or an edit selection) permanently, with a variety of flexible options available, making it ideal when prepping for a mix or for archiving sessions. And with Track Bounce, you can render out stems, making file delivery super fast and easy.
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 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—just added
Fading tracks is one of the fundamentals of audio mixing. 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 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.
