- Pro Tools is the industry standard for audio production and Pro Tools 8 just raised the bar. (upbeat music) 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'll 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 into the new score editor. Yes, Pro Tools has notation now. I'll show you new plugins for EQ, harmonic, delay and modulation effects and the new suite of virtual instruments that will help you start making music with Pro Tools 8 right out of the box. This version of Pro Tools is an amazing upgrade of an already powerful production resource. The new features are so deep, I can only give you a taste here of what we're gonna cover in this course, so if you're hungry for more, I'm here to feed the audio beast in you.
