Avid is stepping up to support professional Pro Tools users who’ve been asked to work from home during the COVID-19 crisis. It’s announced that it’ll make a limited number of 90-day licenses for its creative products available for free to qualified media enterprise and educational institutions.

As you might have deduced, this doesn’t mean that anyone and everyone can have a Pro Tools license - companies need to submit the request for licenses on behalf of their employees, whether they be full-time, contracted or freelance. Similarly, educational institutions need to make bulk requests on behalf of their students.

Licenses are available for Media Composer | Ultimate, Pro Tools, Pro Tools | Ultimate or Sibelius | Ultimate, subject to restrictions. You can find out what these restrictions are - and how to apply - on the Avid website.
