Avid has announced three new subscription offerings for its audio production software Pro Tools.

The subscriptions are Pro Tools Artist “for aspiring music creators”, Pro Tools Studio  for “serious audio engineers and music producers”, and Pro Tools Flex, a subscription bundle for “professional audio post and music facilities.”

These products include new virtual instruments and “strategic partner solutions.” All current Pro Tools and Pro Tools Ultimate  customers with active plans will get the software enhancements introduced with the new products.

Pro Tools Studio ($299 annual or $39.99 monthly subscription) has numerous enhancements like increased track counts, surround and support for Dolby Atmos mixing and advanced automation features (both previously only available in Pro Tools Ultimate), and more. Current Pro Tools subscribers and perpetual license customers with active plans will automatically transition to Pro Tools Studio.

Pro Tools Flex ($999 annual or $99.99 monthly subscription) is Avid’s solution for high-end music professionals, as well as audio post and music facilities. Pro Tools Flex is a subscription bundle that includes an enhanced version of Pro Tools Ultimate software, plus additional content and third-party software. Active Pro Tools Ultimate subscribers will receive the full Pro Tools Flex subscription bundle, including the latest version of Pro Tools Ultimate, while Pro Tools Ultimate perpetual license customers with active plans will receive the Pro Tools Ultimate software enhancements.

“Pro Tools is one of the world’s most widely-used and awarded audio-production software tools and Avid’s goal is to make it more accessible to a broader community of music creators,” said Francois Quereuil, Vice President, Product Management for Audio and Music Solutions, Avid. “The new pricing for Pro Tools gives creators at every level, whether they’re working in music creation or audio post production, the ability to deliver their best possible sound no matter where they’re at in their career.”
