Now that Avid have formally announced Pro Tools 12 and there are web pages to look at, full of pretty pictures, reading what there is, it would seem that Pro Tools 12 is nothing more than Pro Tools 11 with the various cloud collaboration, Avid Marketplace, and cloud storage features presented in the tech previews at NAB last April and IBC last September. You can learn more about these features in the video from Avid and a video from a 3rd party recorded on their phone. even the video Avid link to, on their site, to explain the cloud collaboration and Avid Marketplace features was made back in April 2014.
Release Date?

No release date has been offered on Avid’s web site, it is just announced as ‘coming soon’, but they will have to release it within 3 months now they have made a formal announcement at NAMM 2015.
