Pro Tools 11.1 Update

Posted by Michael Venia on

The Pro Tools 11.1 update has been released for download right before Christmas. More and more users are shifting to Pro Tools 11 with all the benefits it has to offer. Plug-in developers are also releasing updates to support the new 64-bit AAX architecture. We still have both Pro Tools 10 and 11 installed on our studio setup as we have many plugins that either still need updating or upgrading. Our experience with the new Pro Tools 11 has been excellent to date. Pro Tools 11.1 Update
