When it comes to making decisions about sound the two most important things to consider are your room and your studio monitors. It is for this reason that we selected some of the best reference monitors around, but also why we have more than one set. From the famous JBL 7 series to the Barefoot Footprint 01s and to check the Middle Frequencies, the MixCubes.

Pro Tools

The quintessential DAW! If you are working with audio in a professional environment chances are that there is a copy of ProTools on every machine at that facility. 

Like all digital audio workstation software, Pro Tools can perform the functions of a multitrack tape recorder and a mixing console along with additional features that can only be performed in the digital domain, such as non-linear and non-destructive editing (most of audio handling is done without overwriting the source files), track compositing with multiple playlists, time compression and expansion, pitch shifting, and faster-than-real-time mixdown.

Whether you make music or work with sound for picture, the latest Pro Tools brings new features and a dramatic new Dark theme to your studio. Power music creation with Audio-to-MIDI capabilities, Melodyne 5 essentials, and Pro Tools Streamline Dolby Atmos and game audio workflows. And venture to the dark side with a sleek new interface theme.
