The new discount on standard Pro Tools|HD and Pro Tools LE products is available to full members of the Music Producers Guild (UK). The deal - which excludes discounts given as part of a promotional offer with an Avid supplier - follows in the wake of Avid's sponsorship of the Mix Engineer of the Year category at the Music Producers Guild 2010 Awards.

MPG director Andrew Hunt, who is responsible for membership and benefits, commented: "We are delighted to continue our association with Avid and feel that this latest initiative will bring tangible benefits to our full members. The company's audio products need no introduction to recording professionals as they are the mainstay of just about every music recording studio in the world. Many of our full members have their own project studios and will welcome the opportunity to purchase this innovative technology at a discounted rate."
