Version 11 of Pro Tools finally cures its Achilles’ heel

NAB 2013: Version 11 of Pro Tools finally cures its Achilles’ heel by Allan Tépper:
Forget about its brand-new engine, 64-bit architecture, and expanded metering. The most important improvement I see in the palindromic version 11 of Pro Tools is that with this update, the renowned audio editing tool from Avid will finally cure its Achilles’ heel.

At the press conference at NAB 2013, an example given by Avid included a two-hour sequence exported from Pro Tools 11 in 48 seconds, instead of 120 minutes. Now Pro Tools will be able to compete in those situations with apps like Adobe Audition and Apple Logic.
