At the 2015 NAMM Show, Avid announced Pro Tools | First – a new free version of Pro Tools.
Pro Tools | First includes a subset of Pro Tools features. It’s designed to let musicians and audio producers get started with Pro Tools for free, without requiring an iLok.
Pro Tools | First offers up to 16 mono/stereo audio tracks, 16 MIDI tracks and 16 Instruments tracks for a maximum of 48 tracks, compared with hundreds of tracks for the full Pro Tools.
Notably, Pro Tools | First only saves projects to the cloud. Three are included free. You log in to access and work on your projects, but you can work offline when not logged in or if there is no internet, on the last project you saved to the Cloud from a local cache within the application.
