Pro Tools – Best for Traditional Recording
Pro Tools is a major name in the recording studio industry. As one of the first digital audio workstations, Avid's Pro Tools has had a major influence on the development and design of recording studio software. The industry giant still offers a product that's great for small businesses. Pro Tools is a software that's ideal for editing audio after it's been recorded as opposed to creating new sounds and beats directly in the software. Pro Tools further separated itself from competitors when it introduced the Avid Marketplace and Cloud Collaboration. Pro Tools users can get support, find other musicians and post their work to the Avid Marketplace. The marketplace acts as a separate communication channel just for Pro Tools users.
This couples nicely with Cloud Collaboration technology, which allows musicians and business owners to work simultaneously on a project from multiple different locations. Every edit or addition to the project automatically updates in real time. Pro Tools earns our best pick for Best Recording Studio Software for Traditional Recording because of its extensive editing tools and sound library and its new cloud collaboration technology.
