Work Natively On Apple Silicon


Pro Tools is now qualified to run natively on Mac computers with an M1 or M2 chip. The latest update takes full advantage of the powerful technology these chips offer, so you gain significant performance improvements and better efficiency when running Pro Tools natively instead of through Rosetta.

Manipulate Audio In More Ways

Since ARA 2 support came to Pro Tools back in 2022.9, time shifting audio has come a long way. Stretch or compress time and shift pitch in real-time using two new processing options in Elastic Audio—zplane élastique and Celemony Melodyne. élastique uses state-of-the-art psychoacoustic models and signal processing theory that eliminates phasing artifacts to deliver crystal-clear results with impeccable sample accuracy. Melodyne can now be applied to a track or clip that will conform to tempo and meter events when working with tick-based tracks.
