    Avid release Pro Tools 2023.3 (Published 25/3/23)
    Now runs natively on Apple Silicon processors
    [​IMG]

    Avid have announced that Pro Tools 2023.3 is now available. This latest update brings native Apple Silicon support along with some new options for the software’s audio pitch and time editing, and also introduces PlayCell, a new virtual sample player instrument.

    Native M1/M2 Support
    With the release of this latest update, Pro Tools is now fully qualified to run natively on Apple Silicon processors, allowing users of M1 and M2-equipped Macs to benefit from significant performance improvements. Processes such as offline bounces and track activations will see their processing times reduced, whilst plug-in CPU utilisation and the software’s overall responsiveness will also see improvements.

    All of the key functionality that was missing from the beta version is now present, with all AIR plug-ins and instruments (except Structure Free, which is coming soon), Cloud Collaboration, MP3 Export, Score Editor, Chord Extraction and the X-Form Audio Suite and algorithm in Elastic Audio all now working natively on Apple’s latest processors.

    As announced in the beta, Avid’s ICON, C24 and Command 8 control surfaces will not run in the new native version. Avid say that although they have officially been out of support for several years, they should continue to work when running Pro Tools via Apple’s Rosetta 2 translation software.

    Elastic Audio
    In addition to supporting X-Form, Avid have added an entirely new algorithm to the DAW’s Elastic Audio feature in the form of élastique Pro V3 by zplane.development. Available in all versions of the software, the algorithm promises to offer stable timing, inter-channel phase coherence, and sample-accurate stretching, as well as providing formant-preserving pitch-shifting for both monophonic and polyphonic audio in real time.

    PlayCell
    PlayCell is a new virtual sample player instrument, and offers an extensive library of drums, pianos, guitars, basses, synths, orchestral and other instruments. A simple, intuitive interface aims to provide users with a quick and easy way to dial in their sounds, with every instrument equipped with a set of pre-assigned macro controls that have been designed to offer precise control over the character of each patch.

    New sounds will continue to be available though a new Sonic Drop program, which will offer those with active subscriptions or upgrade plans with regular access to new samples, loops and instrument presets. PlayCell will be available in Pro Tools Studio and Ultimate, but not Pro Tools First.

    Other Improvements
    A range of other enhancements have been introduced in the update, with users now able to tab to automation breakpoints or double-click between them to select a range. Edit Groups can now be made to include rulers, allowing information such as markers and tempo changes to be included in arrangement changes or re-conforms, and it is now possible to navigate to the All group from within the Modify Group window’s ID menu. A number of new features and improvements have also been added to the Quantize Controls section of the Edit Window and MIDI Editor toolbars based on user feedback.

    Availability
    Pro Tools 2023.3 is available now to all Pro Tools customers with an active subscription or perpetual licence with an active Software Updates + Support Plan.

    R2R could not crack even 2021.7, It still requires a license.
    only unlocked some opportunities, spied on them at V.R.
    V.R did it much earlier, but did not put it in access (for VIP only).
    After all this, AVID intensified protection.
    Therefore, R2R have no chance. )

    R2R WILL crack it. And they will crack the UA native plugins as well. Once it happens you'll most likely be at the head of the line leeching them down...

    HDX cards in recording studios is one reason to keep using PT.

    Another reason is that people just know that daw very well after decade+ working with it. You work faster with the daw you actually know.

    In terms of markets it seems that PT is most common in US while in Europe, Steinberg

    Your heart
    They need a license to work with. Kindly sacrifice yours :yes:.

    I mean, i'm not sure a lot of people even want PT, but having it appear on the sister site will surely make a lot of people go "huh, would you look at that". That's what matters.

    There is nothing easier to get a Pro Tools license.
    1. Trial for a month. (Sometimes not enough months)
    2. Subscription is not expensive. (The year is enough)

    Look how long it took for avid to add new midi features. PT...always too slow to change, too heavy to run.

    Go to it then. You can keep that subscription shit... Perfectly fine here running au 12.5HD in the interim. And running waves in place of UA. When they are cracked we'll use 'em. You'll be sitting there with your...subscription :bleh: enjoy!

    It's not about speed necessarily, it's about design. IMO, the MIDI sequencing in almost any good DAW is better than PT. They were late to incorporate MIDI, and it's always seemed like a kludge. So for music writing and arranging it has limited utility, though not none. That said, for studio audio recording it's well laid out and fast to use, it's superb for mixing, and for postproduction work it is utterly peerless. Though honestly, if you're working in post you're much better off using it on a Mac than on a PC. For tracking and mixing both platforms work well.

    tbh, it seems that R2R (or V.R.) have more chance with universal audio, than with protools

    Hey young idiot, learn to read first before writing shit.
    I have no subscriptions, I hate them too. All my licenses perpetual.
    There are options for cheap and quick receipt of cracking licenses. Learn to read, although you are unlikely to learn what is written.

    Sure. we all knew you have perpetual's... Because you never said anything about it before now...
    Plus who gives an actual fuck?

    Sure there are. That's why everyone pisses and moans because there is no late
    version cracked PT around. But you have access to the promised land... :rofl:
    Just STFU and waddle back into your hole. moron.
