More tracks than ever
Get ready to create even larger mixes. Pro Tools M-Powered 8 expands the power of your current hardware interface, allowing you to work with up to 48 mono or stereo audio tracks to manhandle the needs of your most demanding sessions.
Score your music
The new Score Editor lets you view, edit, arrange, and print MIDI data as music notation. Whether you want to compose music using the notation tools or transcribe MIDI data into notation, the Score Editor features everything you need and nothing you don't. Write parts on a single staff or grand staff. Place and edit notes, and edit the meter and key signature at will. Add chord symbols and 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.
Complete MIDI production
Pro Tools M-Powered 8 features a comprehensive array of new MIDI tools. 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 new 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; and audition velocity changes. Edit MIDI automation and continuous controller (CC) data through multiple Automation and Controller lanes. Even watch your musical handiwork scroll by in real time during playback.
Transpose with Elastic Pitch
As a complement to Pro Tools software's powerful Elastic Time tempo and time manipulating tool, Pro Tools M-Powered 8 introduces Elastic Pitch, which allows you to effortlessly manipulate or correct the pitch of any audio region in real time. Easily transpose an entire audio region”up or down up to four octaves”without affecting its timing or tempo. Fix a less than perfect vocal performance by altering the pitch of individual notes. Or create cool sound effects by linking pitch changes with time compression/expansion using the Varispeed algorithm.
Comp Tracks to Perfection
Creating flawless performances is easier than ever. Pro Tools M-Powered 8 features new track compositing workflows, enabling you to quickly and easily 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 tracks' alternate playlists, and copy them to the main playlist with a single click. You can also rate regions to help identify which takes you like the most when compositing playlists.
New editing and mixing capabilities
Pro Tools M-Powered 8 equips your system with even more editing and mixing capabilities. Lock regions to the timeline to prevent them from being inadvertently moved or edited. Use the Automation and Controller lanes to view and edit track automation (such as volume, pan, and plug-in automation) and MIDI CC data (such as velocity, pitch bend, and modulation) without changing track views. And with 10 inserts to play with per track, you can now use more plug-ins than ever before.
Expanded hardware control
Pro Tools M-Powered 8 deepens its control surface integration, enabling you to map plug-in parameter controls to almost any encoder on your controller and access each track's 10 inserts.
