Today, anyone can create music at home, on their laptops, or on smartphones. But while low-cost recording tools have opened the gates to music creation and recording, it’s made it that much harder for professional and aspiring musicians, artists, engineers, mixers, songwriters, and producers to stand out from the crowd and be heard.

You need the best tools available to make your music come to life. That’s why nearly every top artist and audio professional uses Pro Tools and Avid control surfaces to create the world's most loved songs and albums.
