About Pro Tools 12.8.3 for macOS

Pro Tools is a popular music creation and post-production software for Mac. With the latest version of Pro Tools, making music and working on large audio post-production projects is now easier than ever. From tons of new MIDI enhancements, to timesaving batch renaming capabilities, Pro Tools boosts your creative efficiency like no other DAW.

Record with ease

Tracking vocals and instrument performances is now faster and easier than ever. Rehearse and record more easily with track input monitoring. Dial in cue mixes in a snap by copying fader settings to sends. And solo tracks in PFL (pre-fader listen) or AFL (after-fader listen) mode for optimal recording.

Turn ideas into masterpieces

Take your songwriting from sketchpad to final production with speed and ease. Create and finesse every virtual instrument or MIDI performance—from tweaking individual notes, to adjusting dynamics, timing, and more. Write music using standard notation tools in the built-in Score Editor. You can even export sessions to Sibelius for further finessing.

Go bigger

Working with a large multi-piece band or complex soundtrack for a movie or video? No need to worry about running out of tracks. With the latest version of Pro Tools, you can simultaneously play back up to 128 audio tracks, 512 instrument tracks, and 512 MIDI tracks.

Create with power

When your creativity is flowing, you don’t want your software getting in the way. With Pro Tools, you get 64-bit performance and dynamic host processing to keep your sessions running smoothly. So go ahead and add all of the virtual instruments and effects you want. Pro Tools won’t slow you down.

Capture amazing performances

Nobody’s perfect. But you can create the perfect take. Record pristine sound—at up to 32-bit/192 kHz—with a supported audio interface. Get exceptionally low latency for easier recording. Let spontaneity shine by tracking multiple passes of a section. Replace questionable sections non-destructively with QuickPunch recording. And create that flawless take by comping together the best performances.

Work with sound for picture

Pro Tools is more than just sound—you can work with audio for movies, television, and other visual media too. Play HD video and Avid DNxHD sequences right in the timeline. Edit with precision using the built-in Timecode Ruler. Clean up sound using the included plug-ins. Create sound effects that define (or defy) reality. Work easily with AudioSuite-rendered clips. And record and edit voiceovers, Foley, and ADR with perfect frame accuracy. You can even share audio mixes with Media Composer editors through AAF.

Make music—virtually

No instrument? No problem. Get access to a wide range of virtual instruments to record the parts you need. Lay down beats with the drum machine, samples, and loops. Add bass, guitar, horns, strings, piano, and other accompaniments. And layer in a variety of other sounds to build up your song—from world instruments to sound effects. No matter what music genre is at hand, you’ll find thousands of possibilities to explore.
