Pro Tools Download

People are always looking for a way to download Pro Tools and they are often fooled by free downloads. The thing to realize is that downloading Pro Tools is one issue, but the authorization is an even bigger one. Pro Tools 8 and earlier were all authorized by having a Digidesign hardware audio interface (Mbox, 002, etc,) connected.
 

The tricky thing is that when you first load Pro Tools (even with the hardware connected) you have to enter an authorization code for your version of Pro Tools (this basically authorized each new version with a new code). Pro Tools M-Powered required authorization from an iLok and required that an approved M-Audio hardware interface be connected. Pro Tools 9 and 10 require iLok authorization and can work with any audio interface.

I have often run into people claiming that they have a legitimate copy and code for Pro Tools 7 or 8. They are probably right, but they still have to connect a Digidesign audio interface (Mbox, 003, etc.) for it to work. They usually don’t have one. Finding a crack for 9 or 10 is probably a trickier task and I’m not going to say if any one has figured it out yet, so don’t get fooled into paying anything for a crack or free version of Pro Tools.

Pro Tools 10 does have a 30 day trial that provides the full version with a time limited iLok authorization. It does of course require that you already have an iLok, but other than that it’s not a bad way to check out Pro Tools. Click here to get the 30 day trial of Pro Tools 10.
 

If you do have a Digidesign or Avid interface and need a legitimate download, go here to Avid’s site to get the updates to the best version for your OS.

Look below for the codes:
