Avid Pro Tools HD Native Thunderbolt MADI System Details
The Avid Pro Tools HD Native Thunderbolt MADI System includes a Pro Tools HD Native Thunderbolt interface, Pro Tools HD software, and an HD MADI interface. ProTools|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 pictureâ?"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.
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.
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 reliabilityâ?"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.
With Pro Tools HD software included, you can compose, record, edit, sequence, and mix music and sound for picture with great speed and ease. Create complex compositions with the integrated Score Editor and MIDI production tools. Track sessions with extremely low latency. And gain inspiration and professional polish from over 75 included effects and virtual instruments. Use the included Pro Tools HD software and youâ??ll maximize your productivity, efficiency, and creative potential, as well as gain unparalleled performance and control of Avid audio and video interfaces, control surfaces, and live sound systems. But you can also use your Pro Tools|HD Native hardware with other Core Audio- and ASIO-compatible DAW software such as Logic, Nuendo, Live, Cubase, Reason, and Fruity Loopsâ?"with support for 64 channels of I/Oâ?"opening up even more creative avenues.
The Avid Pro Tools HD MADI Interface 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.
MADI is an open protocol, and there are a wide variety of MADI-compatible devices available, including digital mixing consoles, mobile recording setups, and routers. With the HD MADI interface, you can easily add MADI devices directly to your recording setup, as well as integrate Pro Tools|HD into broadcast and live sound environments. And because the interface supports both optical and coaxial connections, as well as 56- and 64-channel modes, you can connect to a wide variety of MADI devices from countless manufacturersâ?"without additional format converters
Forget about having to make sure your sample rates or the master clock match. HD MADI provides built-in sample rate conversion (SRC) on all inputs and outputs, so you can simply plug in and goâ?"no converting sessions or down-sampling external MADI devices. And, because your audio output occurs simultaneously on both the coaxial and optical outputs, you can easily send audio to redundant systems without needing a splitter.
HD MADI and all other Pro Tools HD Series interfaces completely integrate with Pro Tools|HD, so you get maximum performance, dependability, and complete control of your signal flow right from your Pro Tools software interface.
