Hal Leonard Music Technology Retailer Update / February 2018


Winter NAMM 2018 in Anaheim, California this January showcased hundreds of the latest product releases and new innovations for the music retailer market, and Hal Leonard joined in the success! Hal Leonard is pleased to announce that we were named a " Company to Watch" by the NAMM University Best in Show panel. Thanks to all who stopped by to see our latest gear, interfaces, software and more music technology products and place your order. If you missed the show, you can find a sampling of the new products launched at NAMM below, or contact us at for more information or to order now.

Pro Tools 2018 Is Here!
from Avid

Avid has now launched the 2018 edition of Pro Tools! Pro Tools 2018.1 brings amazing and extremely useful new features, all created to enable you to create at the speed of your inspiration.  Features include:

Track Presets: Quickly save, catalog, and recall your favorite effects chains, vocal processing, session import criteria, and other track settings. See video demo
Capture performances retroactively: Pro Tools goes into "listen" mode even when you're not recording, so you can retroactively drop those inspired improvisations into a track post performance, without missing a beat.  See video demo
Take deeper control of your MIDI: With numerous MIDI improvements and enhancements. See video demo
Comp together the best takes from multiple playlists-right in Waveform view. Cycle through different takes within a clip using the arrow keys. See video demo
Retire your iLok key: Store all Avid authorization in the iLok Cloud or continue using your iLok as before.
Get a better view of your mix: Improved color coding, EQ curve graphs on all mix window channel strips. See video demo
Start collaborating more easily: "Start Collaboration" automatically transforms your Pro Tools session into a cloud project! See video demo

NOTE: This new edition (which does not require an iLok) is now available as a downloadable code via the Virtual Music Software Vault. The current Pro Tools boxed editions will still come packaged with an iLok until that stock is gone. When you register your software, you will get Pro Tools 2018. The new boxed edition, without iLoks, will be shipping in early March.

No more switching back and forth between different apps or transferring plugin settings to maintain a consistent sound. DualPath FX Rack is compatible with all major DAWs including Logic, Pro Tools Ableton Live and Cubase. Vintage King demo video
