At Winter NAMM in Hall A, Booth #6400, Avid announced Avid Cloud Collaboration for Pro Tools. It is available to select customers through an “Early Access” beta program. Avid Cloud Collaboration is designed to let artists and audio professionals compose, record, edit, and mix projects from any location worldwide.
In support of this release, Avid also announced that the Artist Community, an online community designed to foster creative connections and opportunities for collaboration, is now open to everyone. Pro Tools Version 12.5 will represent the fifth software release in less than a year.
With Avid Cloud Collaboration for Pro Tools, artists and audio professionals can work together on the same project anywhere in the world because revisions and files are synchronized automatically. Customers can invite their connections to collaborate within the application or find new collaborators through the online Avid Artist Community. They can then compose, record, edit, and mix tracks collaboratively with other Pro Tools users, just like they were working together in the same studio. Furthermore, the Artist Community enables customers to share and promote their work with top artists, musicians, producers, engineers, and other media professionals.
With the new Cloud Collaboration features, customers will be able to post projects to cloud storage space and invite others to collaborate; work on projects with others in real time, or create offline and share updates directly; communicate with collaborators through text chat; share audio and MIDI tracks, edits, mix changes, automation, and more.
