The competition, work pace, and session complexity faced by audio professionals have never been more intense. Whether you’re an artist, producer, engineer, sound designer, remixer, or live sound professional, you need to stand apart from the crowd. But how? By overcoming production challenges, collaborating with other artists, creating the best-sounding music and audio, and promoting your work using powerful distribution methods.
Avid audio solutions enable you to create and deliver premium-quality audio, manage complex sessions and high volumes of digital assets, and operate more efficiently. With Avid, audio professionals of all backgrounds take on the most demanding sessions and maximize their creativity—without holding anything back. And our Avid Everywhere vision for audio promises to bring even greater possibilities.
Today, more than ever, audiences and music fans expect premium-quality sound. And whether audio professionals are working in a commercial studio, their home, or a performance venue, they’re challenged with delivering high-caliber results while meeting tight timelines and even tighter budgets.
Avid pro audio and live sound solutions feature software, audio I/O, and control surfaces that integrate seamlessly to deliver unparalleled performance and pristine sonic detail.
Our studio solutions are built around industry-standard Pro Tools | Software. With Pro Tools, you can create and mix using proven professional workflows, quickly overcome any production challenge, and achieve the quality required for success in today’s ultra-competitive industry.
And our proven and trusted live systems—all based on VENUE Software—deliver studio-quality sound, rock-solid reliability, integration with Pro Tools recording and plug-ins, and timesaving workflows.
The Avid Everywhere vision for pro audio includes a marketplace that will help you forge meaningful connections with the entire audio community—and beyond. It’s currently in development, and will enable artists, composers, and other content creators to easily market their material to anyone in the broader media community who needs licensed music and other audio assets.
The marketplace will enable you to:
Many artists and musicians create their best work when they collaborate. In fact, collaboration is a must as the creative process becomes less centralized and projects move across multiple rooms, studios, and time zones. But this can pose a challenge if you’re separated by long distances.
To allow music and audio professionals to work together more efficiently, we’re working to add new cloud-based collaboration functionality to Pro Tools | Software. You’ll be able to access and share the same music or soundtrack session—in real time—no matter where you are. Real-time review and approval of sessions will be possible via iOS devices. And if you’re a musician, you’ll be able to collaborate with bandmates and fellow artists from wherever they may be—all via the cloud.
The size and complexity of projects and sessions are growing at an exponential rate, making it ever more difficult to manage, protect, and track assets. That’s why robust media management and rich metadata are critical.
If you’re an audio post facility owner, you need a system that streamlines processes and scales to handle changing needs. Avid’s cutting-edge media management, session archiving, and shared storage solutions can make your life in the studio easier than ever by enabling you to work more efficiently and handle massive amounts of audio assets.
As part of the Avid Everywhere vision for audio, we will integrate a universal open metadata schema into Pro Tools | Software that will enable you to document and track every asset and project created in the industry-standard DAW. Our metadata strategy is based on current industry standards and will extend throughout every phase of the media value chain, ensuring that nothing gets lost in transition or translation.
Over the last several years, pro audio industry economics have changed drastically—gone are the luxuries of unlimited budgets and flexible deadlines.

When you're in the studio, you need solutions that help take your music from inspiration to completion. Pro Tools is the only digital audio workstation that offers the creative tools, powerful mixing capabilities, and industry-proven workflows you need to turn ideas into final, polished mixes.
