All about Pro Tools HD Native system
Avid introduces Pro Tools HD Native, offering the full capabilities of Pro Tools HD software while running entirely on a host computer’s CPU power, without the additional dedicated processing hardware included in larger Pro Tools HD DSP-assisted systems.
The Pro Tools HD Native system offers an integrated professional hardware and software solution featuring a new Pro Tools HD Native PCIe card and Pro Tools HD software. Pro Tools HD Native uses Pro Tools HD Series interfaces for up to 64 channels of premium audio conversion and I/O. Support for SYNC HD enables accurate synchronization to picture for post-production workflows. For integrated monitoring and tactile control, the system integrates with Avid ICON and C|24 worksurfaces, and promises lossless session and project interchange with other Pro Tools and Avid video editing systems for simplified collaboration.
The Pro Tools HD Native system also offers third-party DAW support with support for Core Audio and ASIO drivers, enabling compatibility with applications such as Logic, Cubase and others. An integrated low-latency mixer promises near-zero latency. The Pro Tools HD Native PCIe card offers a low latency monitor path directly in the Pro Tools system with the push of a button for set-and-forget direct monitoring while tracking.
In addition, Pro Tools HD Native offers audio conversion with up to 192 tracks of audio and up to 64 channels of I/O using HD I/O, HD OMNI and HD MADI. Users can create flexible configurations that support a variety of analog and open digital formats. The system is also compatible with legacy Avid Pro Tools HD interfaces.
Pro Tools HD Native supports both Windows 7 and Mac Snow Leopard 10.6 or higher.
