The Smart Research 2Tools Transport Interface makes ProTools behave as a true tape machine to work with SSL E and G consoles, and provide traditional mixing and tracking sessions.

Working with ProTools as master, Smart Research 2Tools Interface saves time, and avoids word clock sync issues. Play is instant with no waiting for lock. With Smart Research 2Tools Interface, you can drive ProTools from wherever your work is focused. Now you will not wait for SSL mix computer commands like 'Cycle Mix' etc. Smart Research 2Tools Interface has two software versions; 1.4U SSL E/G, PT & MMC and 2.2U SSL E/G, PT & MMC. The software downloads are standard midi files, and can be installed with any midi librarian program (see link above). For SSL and PROTOOLS, 1.4U software is compatible with all PROTOOLS versions to date, and uses the 'CS10' midi protocol for record commands. This requires Digi's additional Legacy Midi Controllers support file installed in PROTOOLSâ"¢. Version 2.2U now uses the more standard â??HUIâ?? midi controller protocol (no additional file needed). There's no need to update to this if you are using 1.4U, but its recommended for new installations, or if you upgrade PROTOOLS in future.
