Avid to Release A Free Version of ProTools

Want to make great sounding music? Start off right using many of the same tools the pros use—absolutely free.

Pro Tools | First is simple enough for beginners, yet sophisticated for experienced musicians, enabling you to quickly compose, record, edit, and mix music. Entry to the industry’s most trusted audio workstation has never been easier.

Sounds good right...not so fast. ProTools First offers no compatibility for AAX plugins, sessions are limited to Avid's Cloud storage, and it has no mp3 export option. You can find more information about ProTools First in this article.
