Pro Tools Cloud

Avid are showing what they describe as their pre-release build of the Pro Tools cloud features, this includes track freeze, remote collaboration, metadata and other features. Of course little of this is new to the audio market, but this is the version Avid will be building into Pro Tools as part of an Avid workflow.

For those interested in backing up and recovering entire Pro Tools sessions Avid will be showing their new PXF archival formal, this allows comprehensive archiving of Pro Tools in this new propriety file format.
New Avid Pro Series Plug-ins

As reported by Mike from the recent IBC show, Avid will be showing their new Avid Pro Tools Pro Series plug-ins. The new Avid Pro Series plug-ins are a Multiband Dynamics and Sub Harmonic. We are big fans of the Avid Pro Series plug-ins at Pro Tools Expert, so we expect these to be worth a look and listen.

Avid will be showing the latest version of the Avid S6 control surface software, version 1.3 offers new features to enhance workflow.
The Latest Avid S3 Software

Avid will be showing the new VENUE 4.5 software which offers new functionality like the ability to share I/O across two or more systems with auto-gain tracking, fast access to channels with VCA and Group Spill and more. Mike took a look at IBC 2014.
