All current students at Berklee are provided with access to powerful, cutting-edge music technology, which is an integral part of the Berklee curriculum. These music technology packages empower students to create professional-quality content with a range of innovative tools.

Compatible Software Versions


Listed below are software titles included in the Entering Student Software Package and their approved versions. Berklee approves versions of software that are tested and evaluated to ensure compatibility needs of the college and curriculum. In some cases, the most current version of a piece of software may be one or two versions ahead of what is actually used at Berklee.

Software Updates


As a Berklee student, updates to all of these applications will be provided to you at no cost during your enrollment (with the exception of ProTools, which requires an upgrade fee after the first year). You can submit a support request to obtain updated software license and registration information for the latest compatible software versions.
