Avid Pro Tools HD Native Thunderbolt + HD I/O 16x16 Analogue System is a Pro Tools system comprising of a HD Native Thunderbolt interface, HD I/O 16x16 Analogue audio interface and industry-standard Pro Tools Ultimate software - a professional and portable native solution that meets the highest audio standards.
Released in 2010, Pro Tools HD Native has quickly become the most popular system for users that require near-zero latency without the DSP-acceleration of Pro Tools HD or HDX. Originally released as a PCI-Express-only card, HD Native did not cater easily for laptop users without the need for separate expansion chassis - not any more!
The included Thunderbolt interface offers the same features as the standard PCI-Express card with the added benefit of ultra-fast Thunderbolt connectivity and high-quality on-board headphone monitoring. Using Thunderbolt offers a supreme performance by virtually eliminating the inherent latency found with USB and FireWire devices, allowing you to concentrate on the production without having to worry about recording or performance delay.
Pro Tools HD Native supports: up to 256 voices and audio tracks, near-zero latency, 512 MIDI and Aux tracks, 64 channels of I/O, automatic delay compensation up to 16k samples, 64-bit floating-point mixer depth for increased headroom and more.
Also included is the Avid HD I/O 16x16 Analogue, a high-performance audio interface with unprecedented I/O flexibility designed to completely integrate with any Pro Tools HD system. Resembling previous generation interfaces, HD I/O has been completely redesigned on the inside with high-quality electronics, giving you pristine conversion at the lowest possible latency.
The HD I/O 16x16 Analogue features: 16 high-quality analogue inputs and outputs on DB25; 8 channels of ADAT I/O with support for S/MUX II and IV; 2 channels of AES/EBU I/O with support for 192kHz single-wire; 2 channels of S/PDIF I/O; 8 channels of ADAT I/O (supports S/MUX II and IV) and Word Clock and Loop Sync I/O.
