Avid have announced that Pro Tools 10.1.1 will be available for all users from March 23rd.
The new version will include 35 AAX versions of existing plug-ins that users have been waiting for. Avid have also ported across both Bomb Factory and the Classic Compressor bundle to AAX.
This should start to allay concerns of the users community that Avid have not been committed to getting their own plug-ins onto the new AAX platform.
Check the Avid site in a few days for the download to appear.
Just to clarify this release will do 2 things,
- Provide non HD users all the newer versions that HD users have been enjoying since 10.1. So PT10 users will now have the latest versions of the built in plug-ins like Vari-Fi that we have seen in the videos but not had in our plug-ins folders.
- You will find that more of the built in plug-ins have made the journey from your Digidesign folder to the Avid folder and will be AAX. However Avid haven’t released the exact list yet. We will let you know as soon as we know and of course we will update our AAX Database as well.
