What’s New In Pro Tools 2023.12

Just a few months ago, Pro Tools 2023.9 was released, bringing the all-new Pro Tools | Sketch non-linear workflow to all versions of Pro Tools. As of today, Pro Tools 2023.12 is available for download, introducing several significant enhancements to the already powerful DAW.

One of the most anticipated Pro Tools updates would be the inclusion of Dolby Atmos Renderer, and that time is finally here. Along with it come updates to Pro Tools | Sketch, the next phase of Track Marker updates, I/O Setup and Routing Color and much more. 

Let’s take a look at what Pro Tools 2023.12 has to offer.

Dolby Atmos Renderer Built In

The new integrated Dolby Atmos renderer is included free in Pro Tools Studio and Ultimate and improves the efficiency of immersive mixing workflows with simplified setup, mixing, and monitoring. You can now render and monitor Dolby Atmos mixes within Pro Tools without having to roundtrip to an external renderer. A new window provides comprehensive visualization of your Atmos mix from various perspectives and enables you to quickly switch between multi-speaker and binaural headphone monitoring. Additionally, a new I/O Setup tab simplifies the configuration of beds, objects, groups, trim, and downmix settings and saves them as part of your session for easy recall.

Pro Tools Sketch Enhancements

The 2023.12 software release introduces new interoperability between Sketches and Pro Tools sessions, adds new audio effects, MIDI workflow improvements, and more. When dragging MIDI clips from the Sketch window into the Pro Tools timeline you can now choose whether to keep them as MIDI for further manipulation or render them as audio. Conversely, when dragging audio clips from Pro Tools into the Sketch window, you now have the option to render the full signal chain (including plugin processing, Elastic Audio, clip effects, etc.) to maintain their processed sound. Finally, improvements to the desktop Media Browser make it easier to access your loops and samples and you can now embed Sketches directly into Pro Tools session folders for better portability of projects when sharing and collaborating with others.

Expansion Of Track Markers

First introduced in the 2023.6 release, Track Markers enable users to add detailed, color-coded comments within a track to improve both music and audio post workflows. 2023.12 builds on this functionality with more marker rulers for better visibility, allowing for each ruler to have a specific purpose with more space for text to be displayed. Track Markers are also easier to find in the Memory Location window through improved sorting and filtering options.
