The Avid Pro Tools HDX Core (No Software) is the core PCIe interface card that is the heart of the HDX system, and the center of Pro Tools DSP processing.
The Avid Pro Tools HDX Core (No Software) features 18 DSP cores and two high-performance FPGA chips, making it a powerhouse. It is finely tuned to process thousands of audio streams at staggering speeds. The central FPGA rapidly routes signal around the card—one sample at a time—with no latency. While the DSPs handle mixer and real-time plugin processing at an amazing 6.3 GHz aggregate clip. The result? Dedicated horsepower to mix the biggest sessions. And immense performance to record directly into them—with real-time effects.
