Pro Tools HD Native

Pro Tools|HD Native is a new generation of Pro Tools|HD system that enables you to compose, record, edit, and mix music and/or sound for picture—with great speed and ease. Consisting of an HD Native Thunderbolt interface or PCIe core card, Pro Tools HD software, and Pro Tools HD Series interface, Pro Tools|HD Native harnesses the power of your Mac or PC to deliver pristine sound, incredible performance, and the lowest latency of any host-based DAW.

Choice of HD Native Thunderbolt interface or PCIe card

Unlike USB- or FireWire-based DAWs, which are inherently prone to latency, Pro Tools|HD Native employs either a high-speed Thunderbolt interface or PCIe core card to connect Pro Tools HD Series interfaces with your laptop or desktop computer. By eliminating distracting monitor latency while recording, increasing your I/O capabilities, and providing 64-bit floating-point processing for more headroom and a higher mix resolution, you get a professional native solution that meets the highest audio standards.

Pro Tools HD software

Award-winning Pro Tools software has been the industry-standard digital audio production platform for years. The software tightly integrates your HD Native hardware and computer together as one, delivering exceptional performance and reliability—even with large mixes. And it comes with all the tools, advanced workflows, virtual instruments, and plug-ins you need to compose, record, edit, and mix music and/or sound for picture.

HD I/O

HD I/O is a high-performance Pro Tools HD Series audio interface that’s designed to completely integrate with Pro Tools|HD systems. The interface features premium A/D and D/A conversion and advanced circuitry, giving you pristine sound quality and clarity and the lowest possible latency.

HD I/O 16x16 Analog

The ideal choice for music productions—get the maximum complement of analog inputs and outputs (can be customized by replacing a card, but not expanded).

  • High-quality analog I/O:
    • 16 analog inputs (using DB25)
    • 16 analog outputs (using DB25)
  • Additional digital I/O:
    • 2 channels of AES/EBU I/O (supports 192 kHz singlewire)
    • 8 channels of ADAT I/O (supports S/MUX II and IV)
