      Avid Pro Tools"HDX 8x8x8 System (108574773)

The only system you need to create world-class mixes.

There is a reason that Avid’s Pro Tools"HDX is an industry standard in professional recording environments and post-production studios all around the globe, and the HDX System is at the top of a very elite class. The HDX 8x8x8 System consists of the Avid HDX DSP acceleration card, an HD I/O analog and digital interface, and the fully immersive power of Pro Tools HD software, all of the highest quality components to sound better and work faster than any other recording and mixing platform available.

Included in this system:

• Pro Tools HD DAW Software
• HD I/O 8x8x8 Digital and Analog Interface
• Avid HDX DSP-acceleration card

Pro Tools HD DAW Software
Whether you create music or sound for picture, the right tools can help you achieve the highest quality mixes faster. Pro Tools 10 is the next generation of the best sounding, most widely-used audio production software in the industry, enabling you to record, compose, edit, and mix with great speed and ease.

New in Pro Tools 10:

Mix it up—at higher resolutions
With Pro Tools 10, you can mix multiple audio file formats and bit depths within the same session— including interleaved—without any file duplication to cause project bloat.

Plus, with support for 32-bit floating-point file formats, you’ll get higher resolution sound when recording or importing, with more headroom to preserve the integrity of your audio from beginning to end.

Drive faster—with better performance
Gain better recording and playback performance when working on a laptop with an external drive or a network-attached storage device. Speed up editing and mixing with Clip Gain. Work more easily with AudioSuite-rendered clips. Get 4x more* Automatic Delay Compensation and 2x more busses to handle bigger mixes with more plug-ins. And get snappier performance when working on sessions with lots of fades.

Plug into legendary sound
With the included Avid Channel Strip plug-in, you get the renowned channel strip of the Avid (formerly Euphonix) System 5, one of the most sought-after consoles used to create some of the greatest mixes ever produced. Work with exact replications of the console’s EQ and compression algorithms to add life to your mix.

HD I/O 8x8x8
Professional studio recording requires a professional audio interface, something that will perform with the precision and stability needed for larger more demanding sessions. Cue in the Avid HD I/O, a high-performance Pro Tools HD"Series 8 x 8 x 8 analog and digital audio interface that’s designed to completely integrate with Pro Tools HD"Systems. The interface features premium A/D and D/A conversion and advanced circuitry, giving you pristine sound quality and clarity and the lowest possible latency. The perfect choice when you need a balance of analog and digital I/O for your music or post-production projects, with 8 analog inputs, 8 analog outputs, and 8 channels of versatile digital inputs.

HDX DSP Accelerator Card
Avid Pro Tools"HDX takes the performance, and the power of the industry leading Pro Tools"HD system and adds even more power, higher audio quality, and easier workflows for recording, editing, and mixing some of the most demanding productions. With Pro Tools"HDX, you get more tracks, more headroom, and up to 5x more dedicated DSP power to tackle massive post-production projects with the confidence that comes with guaranteed performance. There’s a reason that Pro Tools is the standard in most professional studio environments, and with Pro Tools"HDX there’s even more.

    Pro Tools"HDX uses the new AAX plug-in format, which provides better workflow and sound parity between Pro Tools DSP-accelerated and native based systems. Pro Tools"HDX comes and works with two flavors of AAX plug-ins—AAX DSP, which uses the HDX card for processing, and AAX Native, which uses power from your host computer’s processors—as well as with RTAS and AudioSuite (TDM is not supported). For more information about AAX and third-party plug-in compatibility, see the AAX Plug-in Compatibility page.
