With the Holiday Season fully upon us, Avid has released their own gift, Pro Tools 12.4. Finally introducing to Pro Tools the most requested feature by users, Track Freeze allows users the ability to "lock-in" the processing on a track so as to free up resources. Furthermore, it also allows users to "UnFreeze" a track if edits are needed down the road.
Pro Tools 12.4 is scheduled to be released before the New Year, and, is automatically included w/ your Pro Tools Support Plan. Registered users will be notified when the software is available to install. Until then, check out this handy video Avid has put together highlighting the new Freeze feature, as well as recent imporvements such as Commit.
P.S. - If you are interested in learning Pro Tools 12, hands-on, ProMedia Training will be offering Training Classes in Pro Tools 12 starting in January 2016.
