MP3 Option Authorization & Purchase Information
MP3 Option provides the ability to import and export MP3 audio files directly from within Pro Tools. This allows you to import audio from MP3 files, as well as Export or Bounce directly to MP3 with specific attributes (Bit Rate, Tags, etc.). See the File Type descriptions in the Bounce To Disk section of the Pro Tools Reference Guide for more details.
Pro Tools 9 and later
MP3 Option is included with Pro Tools starting with version 9.
Pro Tools 8 and earlier
Up through version 8.x of Pro Tools, the MP3 Option software is a paid option purchased separately, and is available here.
The software costs .95 (USD) to cover the codec licensing fee that Avid pays to the Fraunhofer Institute for each MP3 Option sold.
MP3 Option is included with the purchase of the following ToolKits:
- Complete Production Toolkit
- DV Toolkit 2
- Music Production Toolkit 2
- Music Production Toolkit (discontinued original version)
If you have previously purchased an authorization code for either MP3 Export or MP3 Option for either Mac or Windows, you do not need to repurchase a new license for MP3 Option when updating/upgrading Pro Tools. Your authorization code for any one of these will work with all of the following:
- MP3 Export for Mac (Pro Tools 5.0.1 TDM, LE, or Pro Tools FREE)
- MP3 Export for Windows (Pro Tools 5.0.1 TDM, LE, or Pro Tools FREE)
- MP3 Option for Mac (all Pro Tools 5.1 and higher systems)
- MP3 Option for Windows (all Pro Tools 5.1 and higher systems)
MP3 Option — Authorization Code or iLok Authorization?
iLok authorization of MP3 Option is only available with MP3 Option installation with Pro Tools 7.3 and higher. All earlier versions of MP3 Option require an MP3 Option authorization code. Please Note: in the "Authorizing the MP3 Export Option" section of the MP3 Option Guide, it may say the following: "The MP3 Export Option can be authorized using an Authorization Code or iLok License."
If you own an iLok USB hardware key (purchased separately) and are using Pro Tools 7.3 or higher, you can purchase the iLok License for MP3 Option.
If you do not own an iLok USB key and Pro Tools 7.3 or higher, you would need to purchase the Authorization Code for MP3 Option.
Both versions are the same price. To purchase:
- Go to the online store product page for Pro Tools MP3 Option
- From the drop down list that says "Please select a product", choose the version you want:
- Auth Code for Pro Tools 5.0.1+
- iLok License for Pro Tools 7.3+
- Complete your purchase, and authorize MP3 Option using your purchased Auth Code from your receipt, or iLok License.
- If you are using Pro Tools 8, you may need to install the actual MP3 Option software before you can authorize it (see below)
