Pro Tools has a long history of being an industry standard digital audio workstation that excels at audio recording, editing and mixing. The workflow of Pro Tools is akin to the recording studio environment, which may explain why almost all major studios have Pro Tools.
Pro Tools has two main pages: the Edit page and the Mix page. With only two main pages, Pro Tools can be quick to learn and streamlined at first, but it has many hidden key commands and features that pro users use daily.
Even projects started in other digital audio workstations can end up in Pro Tools for mixing.
