Digidesign is now shipping Pro Tools HD 7.2 software. With a dramatically enhanced feature set—including comprehensive automation, extended video capabilities, new workflows with multi-channel field recorders, built-in dubber/stem recorder functionality and the new SignalTools DigiRack metering plug-in—Pro Tools HD 7.2 is an important upgrade for Pro Tools|HD system or ICON integrated consoles.
New mixing and automation enhancements include VCA-style groups, pan grouping, plug-in parameter linking, flexible new automation modes and additional new functionality for ICON users, such as VCA fader spill, two-knob surround panning and much more.
Extended digital video functionality includes the ability to cut video along with audio and create multiple video tracks and playlists within a single session. For fast review and approval, Pro Tools HD 7.2 software allows users to bounce video and audio to a QuickTime movie. Most common QuickTime resolutions – including H.264 – can now be played back through Avid Mojo or AVoption|V10.
With support for multi-channel disk-based field recorders, Pro Tools HD 7.2 software introduces a unique new workflow that dramatically simplifies the process of switching to alternate channel source audio in a post session. And with its new “DestructivePunch” recording mode, Pro Tools HD 7.2 software transforms any Pro Tools|HD system into a full-fledged dubber/stem recorder.
In addition, Pro Tools HD 7.2 software includes the new SignalTools suite of multi-channel metering plug-ins and a number of usability enhancements, including contextual menus and enhanced fade editing and manipulation.
