Change audio pitch with the new Elastic Pitch real-time pitch transposer. It’s time to upgrade to the most powerful version of Pro Tools M-Powered ever.

Stunning New Look and Interactivity

With a sleek new look, Pro Tools M-Powered 8 is as easy on the eyes as it is to use. All of the Pro Tools M-Powered functionality you know and love is still in place—now with double the inserts per channel, more customizability, easier access to editing options and more. Customize the toolbar to show only your favorite tools, and rearrange them the way you want. Tile or cascade your window arrangement. Change the color of your channel strips, tracks, regions, groups and markers to any hue. Navigate through sessions quickly using the Universe view. And with the QuickStart dialog, you can jump right into an existing session, quickly create a new session from scratch, or start from one of the new session templates.

A Well-Stocked Studio

Pro Tools M-Powered 8 comes fully packed with a huge, comprehensive collection of music creation and sound processing plug-ins—giving you a well-stocked studio right out of the box. Create and play music with groundbreaking new virtual instruments, including the Mini Grand piano, Boom™ drum machine, DB-33 tone-wheel organ, and Vacuum and Xpand!2™ synths.

And with dozens of professional sound processing plug-ins and tools at your disposal, you can fix, enhance and polish your mixes with ease. See the complete list.

More Tracks Than Ever

Pro Tools M-Powered 8 expands the power of your current hardware interface, allowing you to work with up to 48 mono or stereo audio tracks. You can also add Music Production Toolkit 2 to create huge mixes with up to 64 mono or stereo audio tracks.

Score Your Music

Based on the Sibelius notation engine, the new Score Editor lets you view, edit, arrange and print MIDI data as music notation. Whether you want to compose music using the notation tools—or transcribe recorded, imported, drawn (with the Pencil tool) or step-entered MIDI data into notation—the Score Editor features everything you need and nothing you don’t. Write parts on a single staff—treble, bass, alto, or tenor clef—or grand staff. Place and edit notes, and edit the meter and key signature at whim. Add chord symbols such as Dm7 and guitar chord diagrams to sessions. Transcribe MIDI parts in real time. Print out a score in its entirety or print only certain instrumental parts. You can even export sessions as Sibelius (.sib) files for further finessing in Sibelius.

Complete MIDI Production

Pro Tools M-Powered 8 features a comprehensive array of new MIDI tools to streamline production with both virtual and traditional instruments. Gain extensive MIDI editing power through MIDI Editor windows, which can display MIDI and automation data for Instrument, MIDI and Auxiliary Input tracks. Work with new features that let you separate, consolidate and mute MIDI notes; scrub and shuttle through parts; view superimposed MIDI and Instrument tracks for easier arrangement editing; color code MIDI notes by track, type, or velocity; audition velocity changes; and play MIDI notes when tabbing. Edit MIDI automation and continuous controller (CC) data through multiple Automation and Controller lanes. You can even watch your musical handiwork scroll by in real time during playback.

Transpose Audio with Elastic Pitch

As a complement to Elastic Time, Pro Tools M-Powered 8 introduces Elastic Pitch, which allows you to you to effortlessly manipulate or correct the pitch of any audio region in real time, right inside the Edit window. Easily transpose an entire audio region in semitones +/- four octaves without affecting its timing or tempo. Fix a less-than-perfect vocal performance by altering the pitch of individual notes in cent intervals. You can also create cool sound effects by linking pitch changes with time compression/expansion using the Varispeed algorithm.

Comp Tracks to Perfection

Creating flawless performances is easier than ever with Pro Tools M-Powered 8. New track compositing features let you quickly and easily piece together the best possible version of a performance from multiple recording passes. Simply loop-record multiple takes on an Audio track, view and audition the takes in Playlist view, select the best parts from the track’s alternate playlists, and copy them to the main playlist with a single click. You can also rate regions on a scale of one to five to help identify which takes you like the most when compositing playlists.

New Editing and Mixing Capabilities

With Pro Tools M-Powered 8, your system has even more editing and mixing capabilities. Lock regions to the timeline to prevent them from being inadvertently moved or edited. Use the Automation and Controller lanes to view and edit track automation (such as volume, pan and plug-in automation) and MIDI CC data (such as velocity, pitch bend and modulation) without changing track views. And with ten inserts to play with per track, you can now use more plug-ins than ever before.

Expanded Hardware Control

Pro Tools M-Powered 8 deepens its integration with hardware controllers such as M-Audio® ProjectMix I/O and Digidesign® Command|8®. Now you can map plug-in parameter controls to almost any encoder on your controller, and access each track’s ten inserts.

More Great New Features

Pro Tools M-Powered 8 is chock full of many other amazing new features that’ll help you become more efficient, inspire your creativity and provide more flexibility for your workflow needs. For example, the new Check for Updates feature keeps Pro Tools M-Powered and your plug-ins up to date with the latest and greatest revisions. There’s also support for files up to 4GB in size, letting you work with longer files with higher sample rates. You’ll find even more with the most powerful update to Pro Tools M-Powered yet.


*Up to 64 simultaneous stereo or mono audio tracks with the Music Production Toolkit 2 option. Owners of the original Music Production Toolkit software option who upgrade to Pro Tools M-Powered 8 will automatically get support for up to 64 stereo audio tracks.

  17. HELP!
    I want to move forward with my purchase of PT8 M-Pwrd.

    I have less than $2k to work with, and I want a computer (Dell XPS 8000 Studio XPS 8000, Intel® Core™ i5-750 processor(8MB Cache, 2.66GHz), Pro tools 8 M-Powered software , Axiom 49 Advanced Semi-Weighted USB MIDI Controller, Fast Track Pro USB Audio/MIDI Interface with Preamps (I need to buy all this thru Dell website to take advantage of coupons, no interest, and credit).

    The PT wesite is very confusing as to what is compliant/required to run all this properly…my head is about to explode. I just want to write original material at home on this rig by myself. I have questions about processors, video cards, audio cards, multi or single hard drive set ups…arggggh.. HELP!

    PAUL: it’s uncertain if this system will run pro tools at all, pro tools does not support 64 bit operating systems, and it ships with 64 bit windows 7.

    pro tools only supports 32 bit OS’s, i can tell you with 100% certainty it will not run windows xp 32 bit. your best hope is to get a hold of a 32 bit vista, it wont run on windows 7 yet.

    avid (pro tools support) says they are working on windows 7 support and no update in 6 months.

    i am buying this same pc and hoping for the best.
    they will have to support it eventually, windows 7 is proving to be the best os Microsoft has made yet.

  56. My developer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on a variety of websites for
    about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform.
    I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress
    content into it? Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!

  62. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if
    you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet
    my newest twitter updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like
    this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some
    experience with something like this. Please let me know
    if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your
    blog and I look forward to your new updates.


  63. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is required to get set up?
