Avid® recently announced a new software update for the industry-standard digital
audio software, Avid Pro Tools®, bundled plug-ins that deliver even more value to
upgrade and support plans, and a new reduced price for perpetual licenses.

According to Avid, these latest developments further deliver on Avid EverywhereTM
by making industry-standard software more accessible to independent artists and
aspiring professionals, while enabling audio professionals to stay up to date and
have access to the most current, powerful workflows.

It is also aiming to provide more value for Pro Tools and Pro Tools | HD customers
with annual upgrade and support plans and subscription licenses, a new release that
includes access to premium AAX plug-in bundles, and a host of new features.

The new Pro Tools upgrade and support plans provide more value and flexibility to
stay on top of the latest updates, access creative tools and get professional support,
said Avid.

Pro Tools customers with monthly and yearly subscriptions will also have access to
the new bundle of 17 plug-ins, in addition to the latest updates and professional
customer support.

For Pro Tools | HD, the new annual upgrade plans that were recently updated with a
lower renewal price now also include access to 16 new stompbox effects and nine
additional premium AAX plug-ins.

Customers with active upgrade plans will get access to this plug-in bundle during
the term of their plan, while all new Pro Tools | HDX and HD Native systems come
bundled with the new annual upgrade subscription, according to Avid.

The new version of Pro Tools includes several key enhancements that are among
the most requested by the Pro Tools community and will enable audio professionals
to use advanced mixing workflows like VCA Masters, extended metering, gain
reduction metering, and Disk Cache for high-performance playback and record,
even when using slower storage.

The new Pro Tools 12.2 update will be available September 9, and is free of charge
to Pro Tools 12 customers with upgrade plans.

The Annual Upgrade Plan for Pro Tools | HD systems starts at $599 for the first
year and includes upgrades, access to the HD plug-in bundle and standard support
for one year.

All new Pro Tools | HDX and HD Native systems come bundled with this plan which
can be renewed for $399 each year thereafter. Starting in 2016, plans that lapse
can be reinstated for $999.
