Pro Tools is the industry standard for audio production and Pro Tools 8 just raised the bar. (Music playing.) I'm David Franz. I'm a music producer and songwriter, owner of Underground Sun Studio and author of the first Pro Tools book. And this is Pro Tools 8 New Features. With this new incarnation of Pro Tools, Digidesign introduces a new, very functional and more modern looking interface. We will explore the interface along with the new menu items, new preferences and the new MIDI Editor.
We'll look at the new track comping function, independent automation lanes and I'll get in to the new Score Editor. Yes, Pro Tools has notation now.

This version of Pro Tools is an amazing upgrade of an already powerful production resource.
