Pro Tools 11.1.1 Update

Posted by Michael Venia on

Just announced by Avid, the Pro Tools 11.1.1 update is ready for download. The major update for both Mac and Windows versions is for dragging a clip that shares a crossfade. The crossfade is now converted to separate fades that preserve the sound of the original crossfade.

Pro Tools 11.1.1 now also successfully imports AAF files that were exported from Steinberg Nuendo.

A Windows only fix now stops audio from distorting when you are using ASIO applications with the Avid ASIO Driver with HDX or HD Native hardware.
