Whether you’re creating sound that defines or defies reality, Pro Tools enables you to sculpt, shape, and transform audio quickly and build up scenes from scratch. Tweak and destroy sounds to create new ones with an army of plug-ins and Elastic Audio. Trim clips and nudge video frames for precision placement. And quickly adjust gain levels with Clip Gain.

Record voiceovers and sound effects

Integrate into post workflows

Need to record a voiceover for narration, punch in some dialog, or create a sound effect? Pro Tools provides all the tools you need to capture audio with great sound clarity—from automating punch-in recording using pre- and post-roll, to setting up an effects chain with all the necessary EQ and dynamics processing to optimize your sound.

Need to collaborate with video editors or post-production teams? You can easily share your audio mixes with Media Composer editors by exporting tracks or an entire session as an AAF file. Pro Tools also supports XAVC Long GOP files and 1080p50 project types, enabling you to work your audio editing and mixing magic on projects that use these formats.
