Avid has introduced a new software scripting development kit (SDK) for Pro Tools, which is supported by the latest version of Pro Tools.
The Pro Tools Scripting SDK is a language-independent API for the Windows and Mac versions of Pro Tools that provides access to a number of commands. These include opening, closing, and saving sessions, exporting to various formats, performing multiple functions on the timeline, using “get” commands to view clips, and using “set” commands to perform record actions in open sessions.
“Avid is embarking on a new era of openness, beginning with the SDK, to provide users with more tools to connect all of their solutions into a unified workflow. The Scripting SDK is just the beginning of the rollout of API calls into Pro Tools, and we’re looking forward to delivering more openness for users to improve, combine and invent with the Pro Tools Scripting SDK.”
said Francois Quereuil, Vice President, Product Management for Audio and Music Solutions, Avid.
The Pro Tools Scripting SDK is an external component that serves as an access layer between scripting applications and Pro Tools offering more commands and greater forward compatibility.
SoundFlow’s CEO says this will enable users to create immersive, personalized user interfaces and automated workflows that remove distractions and help them focus on their creativity.
