The Pro Tools HD Native Thunderbolt Interface and HD MADI Interface Bundle from Avid is a music and post-production core system that allows the professional to create complex, high-quality audio productions, using the full capabilities of Pro Tools HD software in a lower-cost, native solution.
Pro Tools HD and HDX systems deliver both card based and computer based DSP but with an incremental increase in cost. With the Pro Tools HD Native system, a single PCI card handles the mixing and routing duties, with the rest of the DSP processing handled by the computer. Now Avid has taken the card and housed it in a Thunderbolt equipped chassis for enhanced portability when paired with a Thunderbolt equipped laptop computer.
Pro Tools software has been the industry-standard digital audio production platform for years. Pro Tools HD 10 software tightly integrates the HD Native hardware and computer together as one, delivering performance and reliability, even with large mixes. It includes all the tools, advanced workflows, virtual instruments, and plug-ins needed to compose, record, edit, and mix music and/or sound for picture.
The HD MADI digital audio interface allows the integration of Pro Tools HD into broadcast and post-production environments, and anywhere in which MADI-equipped devices are in use. The interface allows for sending and receiving up to 64 audio streams between Pro Tools HD and MADI devices, from a distance of up to 1.24 miles (2 km). Built-in sample-rate conversion (SRC) and dedicated Wordclock and XLR AES/EBU connections allow for syncing to an external clock when the SRC is being used on output.
