You can imagine how thrilled the Avid team was to get word that PC Magazine awarded Pro Tools 10 an Editor’s Choice Award –there might have been a few fist pumps, and definitely a bunch of high-fives. In his review, PC Mag’s Senior Mobile Analyst, Jamie Lendino, gives an awesome overview of Pro Tools 10– laying out the updates and new features to provide readers with the inside, unbiased scoop on what makes Pro Tools so amazing. So what did Jamie think? (Hint: Editor's Choice Award.)
The review, of course, hits on the major updates that came along with Pro Tools 10 which as Jamie notes, are not “visible up front, but taken together, address a number of long-standing issues.” Specifically, he calls out Clip Gain addressing just how much easier it makes audio editing for the professional. He describes the user interface as “transparent and fluid” and cites that “from loop recording, to sample-level editing, to comping together tracks, you can quickly assemble a performance, as well as edit it quickly.”
While we are psyched to see that Jamie finds the new Channel Strip plug-in sounds great and highlights the improved control surface support, what's even better is the way he nails our commitment to delivering absolute professional stability. “Pro Tools 10 is just rock solid in operation, with no weird glitches. I never wonder if it's going to work or fall apart when using the transport controls,” he writes.
The bottom line? “Avid Pro Tools remains the standard, cross-platform solution for professional audio work on Macs and PCs, and is still the ‘can't go wrong’ default choice—with good reason.” If you want to read the full review, be sure to head over to PC Magazine. Big shout out to Jamie for taking the time to review Pro Tools 10 – we’re honored to be awarded Editor’s Choice!
