Manufacturer's Description from Avid

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 MADI

HD MADI is a versatile, all-digital interface that provides 64 channels of MADI I/O, making it easy to integrate Pro Tools|HD systems into post-production and broadcast environments. Get great connection flexibility, fuss-free use through built-in sample rate conversion, and the ability to send and receive audio between your Pro Tools setup and MADI devices up to 2 km (1.24 miles) away.

Key Features

  • Send and receive up to 64 audio streams between Pro Tools|HD and other MADI devices
  • Maintain maximum audio fidelity, with up to 24-bit, 192 kHz sample rate support
  • Gain connection and routing flexibility through optical and coaxial connections:
    • 2 MADI inputs (optical and coaxial)
    • 2 MADI outputs (simultaneous optical and coaxial)
  • Forget having to match sample rates, thanks to built-in SRC on all I/O channels
  • Completely integrates with Pro Tools|HD family systems for full input, output, and routing control
  • Sync to an external clock through dedicated BNC Word Clock and XLR AES/EBU connections when using SRC on output
  • Keep things in sync with versatile Clock support, including Internal, Loop Sync, Word Clock, AES/EBU, and MADI
  • Gain better device compatibility with 64-channel (non-Varispeed) and 56-channel (Varispeed) support (at 48 kHz)
  • Integrate Pro Tools|HD family systems with MADI-equipped VENUE live sound systems for recording and Virtual Soundcheck
  • Verify and troubleshoot signals through status indicators and global I/O signal LEDs

  • Attain the lowest latency and highest performance of any native digital audio workstation
  • Capture and play back audio with pristine clarity using a Pro Tools HD Series interface

  • Boost your capabilities with advanced automation, surround mixing, input monitoring, AFL/PFL solo, destructive punch, and other professional features
  • Conveniently monitor every detail with the audiophile-grade headphone out, which provides enough gain to drive high impedance headphones (Thunderbolt interface only)
  • Get better sounding mixes with AAX Native and RTAS plug-ins, plus Automatic Delay Compensation on hardware and software inserts
  • Share sessions with Pro Tools|HDX and Pro Tools|HD users without any loss of data
  • Synchronize to timecode and video reference, with frame-edge accuracy, when using SYNC HD (sold separately)
  • Take hands-on control over your mixes using Artist Series or Avid Pro Mixing consoles and control surfaces
  • Get total flexibility—work with Mac or Windows, Pro Tools HD or third-party software, and more
