FRANKFURT, Germany, March 12, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Musikmesse (Hall 5.1, Booth A30) -- Avid® (OTC:AVID) today announced that Avid Pro Tools® 11 continues to gain momentum as the solution of choice for professional audio production, backed by the development and release of a growing number of plug-ins for Avid Pro Tools 11 in the 64-bit AAX format and accelerated global adoption of Avid Pro Tools®|HDX systems. Musicians, producers and engineers are facing increasing complexity in the creative process, pressure for operational efficiency and a drive to create inspiring content. The availability of more than 1,000 plug-ins from over 100 Avid development partners, and 250 virtual instruments for Pro Tools 11, takes music from creation and composition to the final mix in a single application.

The growing demand for Pro Tools|HDX – with over 11,000 systems sold worldwide – places the audio production solution at the center of creative workflows for leading film production facilities, music and post-production facilities and independent artists, enabling them to differentiate services to maintain and grow revenue.
