Avid Pro Tools|HD Native takes full advantage of today's high-power computers by offering you some of the top features of Pro Tools|HD at an incredible low price. Pro Tools|HD Native gives you blazing fast I/O, near-zero latency, automatic delay compensation, and full integration with Avid's HD line of interfaces, leaving your CPU to handle plug-ins and mixing. If you're budget minded but still demand results from your DAW, have one of these high-power computers, and prefer to track with outboard signal processors (rather than plug-ins), then Pro Tools|HD Native is perfect for you.
The Pro Tools|HD Native Core + HD I/O Bundle includes an Avid Pro Tools|HD Native Core PCIe card, Pro Tools|HD software, and an amazing 8 x 8 x 8 Avid HD I/O interface. Right out of the box, you get eight channels of pristine analog I/O and an additional eight channels of versatile digital I/O - all in the Pro Tools|HD environment! The Pro Tools|HD Native Core card includes two DigiLink Mini inputs, so expanding your system with an additional HD I/O, HD Omni I/O, HD MADI I/O, or legacy 192 I/O, or 96 I/O for up to 64 channels of ultra-low-latency I/O is easy.
Other than TDM plug-in support (which requires DSP), Pro Tools|HD software runs the same with a Pro Tools|HD Native Core system as it does with a Pro Tools|HD Accel system. You get 192 channels of audio (64 at 192kHz), as well as 7.1 surround sound support, Copy to Send, complete multitrack Beat Detective, and automatic delay compensation, as well as other great functions previously unavailable for a native Pro Tools system. And if you're stepping up from a Pro Tools LE system, you'll get all of the plug-ins you already know and love, plus incredible sound quality you've never experienced before - all for an amazing low price!
