Choose Thunderbolt or PCIe
When recording, the smallest distraction can affect your performance. The most frustrating—dealing with the latency USB and FireWire-based audio interfaces can bring. That’s why Pro Tools | HD Native elevates your recording experience with a choice of high-speed Thunderbolt or PCIe connectivity. This nearly eliminates that distracting delay you hear while recording, leading to better performances. With the Thunderbolt interface, you even get an audiophile-grade headphone output to hear every detail.
Moving up from a Pro Tools system? Get more power to create bigger, more complex mixes. Create huge sessions with up to 256 audio tracks and 512 instrument tracks. Capture and monitor up to 64 inputs and outputs at the same time. And handle the most intense virtual instrument and plug-in-heavy mixes easily.
Achieve pristine sound
Get the highest fidelity and sound transparency when you choose Pro Tools | HD Series audio interfaces, sold separately. Capture audio in stunning clarity at up to 32-bit, 192 kHz resolution. Get more headroom—and less headaches—thanks to 64-bit floating-point processing. Have more room to push things further, without clipping or obsessive gain staging. And get significantly greater dynamic range to elevate your mixes.
Create on the go
Free yourself from the confines of the studio and create wherever inspiration takes you. Pair the HD Native Thunderbolt interface with a single rack space HD OMNI audio interface and your laptop and you’ve got a fully mobile, full-powered recording rig. Or compose, edit, and mix with just Pro Tools | HD software on your laptop with your iLok for easy on-the-go creation.
