Avid is letting everyone get their ideas down even faster thanks to the brand new Pro Tools Sketch tool. Pro Tools Sketch is a clip-based creation tool in Pro Tools software that’s also available as a free iPad app featuring a massive library of free loops, virtual instruments and effects.
Pro Tools Sketch features 16 tracks, nearly unlimited scenes, and includes over 1 GB of loops with a variety of onboard effects. Users can quickly audition audio and MIDI loops in the browser and drag them into the launcher where they can be played, moved and tweaked. Audio and MIDI can also be recorded and edited alongside loops.
“Every music creator wants to capture inspiration when it arises and act on it precisely at that magical moment—and it should be simple and easy. We made Sketch to go far with ideation, letting any user start experimenting with their notions right away and then simply hop into Pro Tools when they’re ready to take them further forward,” said David Toomey, Senior Vice President & General Manager of Audio & Music Solutions, Avid.
“We’re incredibly excited for beginners and pros alike to work out non-linear ideas with total convenience, then mix and edit in Pro Tools. Creators never stop generating new ideas and Sketch lets their output keep pace with their individual creative sparks. Not a single moment wasted, not a single idea lost.”
