Professional Recording, Editing, and Mixing
Pro Tools MP software enables M-Audio hardware enthusiasts to easily access the powerful recording, editing, and mixing features of Pro Tools. With up to 48 simultaneous stereo tracks of 16- or 24-bit digital audio, and support for up to 96kHz sample rates, Pro Tools MP is an ideal companion for M-Audio interfaces and audio interface keyboards—whether you’re recording solo or entire bands.
Once you’ve finished your recording, you can fine-tune your performances with Pro Tools software’s unmatched nondestructive editing tools. Shape sounds, compose parts, and add effects with RTAS instrument and effects plug-ins—then create polished mixes with professional mixing features and full mixer automation.
Pro Tools MP now features Automatic Delay Compensation (ADC)—previously only available with high-end Pro Tools"HD systems—which makes it easy to get great-sounding, phase-accurate mixes. During mixing, latency issues can arise when an external processor or plug-in algorithm induces enough latency to interfere with musical timing. Issues can also occur when you’re maintaining nearly identical signal sources on separate tracks or paths—for example, a pair of bass tracks—and you insert a plug-in with latency on one of those tracks. When activated, the ADC feature automatically makes adjustments to compensate for internal latencies in your mixes—ensuring they stay time-aligned, phase accurate, and sounding great.
Once you’ve achieved the perfect mix, it’s easier than ever to share your work. Quickly export your projects in a wide variety of audio formats, including MP3—then share them with the world.
Pro Tools MP features a variety of tools that ease and speed loop-based music creation. In addition to importing REX and ACID files, the Loop Trim tool also makes it easy to turn audio or MIDI regions into loops. The Elastic Time and Elastic Pitch features make it a breeze to change tempo/time and pitch on the fly. As a result, you can integrate a wide variety of loops and audio files with your current session throughout the entire writing process. And DigiBase—the program’s internal database—even has a Loop Preview feature that allows you to preview loops in sync, in real time, before bringing them into your session.
Transpose Audio with Elastic Pitch
Elastic Pitch allows you to you to effortlessly manipulate or correct the pitch of any audio region in real time, right inside the Edit window. Easily transpose an entire audio region in semitones—up to four octaves in either direction—without affecting its timing or tempo. Fix a less-than-perfect vocal performance by altering the pitch of individual notes in cent intervals. You can also create cool sound effects by linking pitch changes with time compression/expansion using the Varispeed algorithm.
Stretch Your Sound with Elastic Time
Elastic Time is a powerful real-time tempo manipulation feature that makes it easy to change tempo or time on the fly. For musicians, composers, and music producers, Elastic Time puts loop-based music creation in the fast lane, giving you the freedom to explore different tempos and experiment with loops and audio files that sync with your current session throughout the entire writing process. For post-production editors and engineers, Elastic Time makes it easy to stretch or squeeze audio tracks to fit video time frames, using high-quality algorithms that make your time manipulation virtually undetectable.
With Pro Tools MP software, you can change the tempo and timing of loops, music, dialog and other sound files without cutting up audio. Easily create loops from any audio file—even entire compositions—with the help of powerful tempo and transient analysis. Want to hear how a certain audio bit will sound in your song? The Context Preview lets you quickly audition loops and audio files in sync with the tempo of your session. Even imported audio files and loops automatically conform to match your session’s tempo.
Pro Tools MP also makes it easy to perfect the timing of performances. You can improve errant beats by quantizing audio to your session’s Bar"Beat grid—or to grooves extracted from other audio or MIDI performances using the Beat Detective feature, which offers exceptional peak detection accuracy. You can also fine-tune “Elasticized” regions, with precision control over each individual beat, using the warp track view and warp markers. You can even make the same precise changes across multiple grouped tracks while preserving timing offsets in multitrack recordings, such as with drums.
To ensure that you get the highest quality results, Elastic Time delivers some of the best-sounding processing in the industry. You can choose from several premium time-stretching algorithms on a per-track basis. You can even adjust the decay and processing window length to tailor the audio processing for each track, rather than settling for a one-size-fits-all algorithm.
Comp Tracks to Perfection
It’s easy to create flawless performances with Pro Tools MP. Track compositing features let you quickly piece together the best possible version of a performance from multiple recording passes. Simply loop-record multiple takes on an Audio track, view and audition the takes in Playlist view, select the best parts from the track’s alternate playlists, and copy them to the main playlist with a single click. You can also rate regions on a scale of one to five to help identify which takes you like the most when compositing playlists.
Advanced MIDI Production
Pro Tools MP software’s fully integrated MIDI sequencer and editor allow you to record, edit, and mix up to 256 MIDI tracks alongside your audio tracks. Dedicated Instrument tracks combine the audio and MIDI elements of a given virtual instrument into a single channel strip to streamline your workspace. Launch your favorite instrument plug-in to get the sound you want. Engage loop recording to quickly develop a multi-layered drum pattern, then use Groove Quantize or Groove Templates to give it the right feel. Switch to MIDI Step Input to lay down a difficult passage. Turn on real-time MIDI processing to quantize your performance as it goes down.
Pro Tools MP also features a comprehensive array of MIDI tools to streamline production with both virtual and traditional instruments. Gain extensive MIDI editing power through MIDI Editor windows, which can display MIDI and automation data for Instrument, MIDI, and Auxiliary Input tracks. Work with features that let you separate, consolidate, and mute MIDI notes; scrub and shuttle through parts; view superimposed MIDI and Instrument tracks for easier arrangement editing; color code MIDI notes by track, type, or velocity; audition velocity changes; and play MIDI notes when tabbing. Edit MIDI automation and continuous controller (CC) data through multiple Automation and Controller lanes. You can even watch your musical handiwork scroll by in real time during playback.
Score Your Music
Based on the Sibelius notation engine, the Pro Tools MP Score Editor window lets you view, edit, arrange, and print MIDI data as music notation. Whether you want to compose music using the notation tools—or transcribe recorded, imported, drawn (with the Pencil tool), or step-entered MIDI data into notation—the Score Editor features everything you need and nothing you don’t. Write parts on a single staff—treble, bass, alto, or tenor clef—or grand staff. Place and edit notes, and edit the meter and key signature on a whim. Add chord symbols such as Dm7 and guitar chord diagrams to sessions. Transcribe MIDI parts in real time. Print out a score in its entirety or print only certain instrumental parts. You can even export sessions as Sibelius (.sib) files for further finessing in Sibelius.
Customize Your Look
Pro Tools MP is as easy on the eyes as it is to use. Customize the toolbar to show only your favorite tools and rearrange them the way you want. Tile or cascade your window arrangement. Change the color of your channel strips, tracks, regions, groups, and markers to any hue. Navigate through sessions quickly using the Universe view. And with the QuickStart dialog, you can jump right into an existing session, quickly create a new session from scratch, or start from one of the session templates.
ReWire, Torq, and More
Fans of Torq DJ software and other standalone applications can utilize ReWire within Pro Tools MP for the best of both worlds. Simply send Torq software’s output streams into Pro Tools MP via ReWire for further mixing and processing. Pro Tools MP also accepts MIDI directly from ReWire applications for recording controller data to a Pro Tools MIDI or Instrument track. With Pro Tools MP and ReWire, the creative possibilities are endless.
If you want the tactile feel of a pro console while enjoying the benefits of a personal or project studio, Pro Tools MP supports the M-Audio ProjectMix I/O and Command"8. Both give you control over the software’s mixing and transport functionality. ProjectMix I/O even incorporates a built-in 18 x 14 FireWire audio interface complete with eight preamps so you don’t need any extra gear. If you’re a DJ, Torq Xponent gives you a familiar DJ mixer surface combined with an audio interface and RCA outputs. And with Pro Tools MP, you can map plug-in parameter controls to almost any encoder on your controller, and access each track’s ten inserts.
