Digidesign released version 7.4 of its Pro Tools digital audio workstation software.
Updates to music and post-production features include Elastic Time, a multifaceted composition and production tool.
Elastic Time allows users to change the tempo and timing of loops, music, dialog and other sound files in real time without cutting up audio tracks. Users can now audition and import music loops and audio files that sync with a session’s tempo.
Additionally, users can use Elastic Time to quantize audio to the session grid or extracted grooves, and fine-tune regions with control over each beat.
