What is Pro Tools?
Pro Tools is the world's most popular computer-based digital music production system. The combination

Pro Tools is a digital audio workstation platform that integrates hardware and software, which is widely
used by professionals in music production, post production, TV and film scoring. It is made by
Digidesign, a division of Avid Technology.
As one of the first programs to provide CD-quality (16 bit and 44.1 kHz) multitrack digital audio editing on
a personal computer, Pro Tools grew quickly in the sound recording field, becoming popular because of
its streamlined interface for non-linear, non-destructive editing. This appealed to analog producers
switching to computer-based digital audio production. Digidesign received a technical Academy Award of
Merit for the development of Pro Tools in 2004.

Pro Tools plug-ins
Pro Tools plug-ins are add-on software tools that provide additional signal processing functionality to
Pro Tools® systems. There’s a Pro Tools software plug-in for almost anything you can imagine: EQ,
dynamics, reverb, sound synthesis, pitch and time shifting, noise reduction, mastering, surround
encoding, and more.
AudioSuite Plug-Ins provide File-based or non-real-time processing, meaning they process or alter the
sound file and create a new file with the processed sound. The resulting effect is applied to the entire file.
Real-Time AudioSuite (RTAS) Plug-Ins are host-based, relying on the computer's internal processing
power to do their job. Functionally, RTAS Plug-Ins offer many of the real-time benefits of TDM Plug-ins.
Their parameters can change in real-time, they are fully automatable, and their effects are not
permanently written to the audio file.
