Pro Tools|HDX enables bigger, more complex productions with solid performance and stability. This new system offers optimised DSP-accelerated hardware that delivers up to 5x more DSP per card, over a thousand dB of additional headroom, and up to 4x the track counts and 2x the I/O compared to Pro Tools|HD Accel. It can also be scaled to increase track counts, power, and I/O, using up to three Pro Tools|HDX cards and multiple Pro Tools HD Series interfaces. Up to 64 channels of I/O per card is provided.
More headroom is also provided with Pro Tools|HDX , which enables a dramatic improvement in recording and mixing audio quality with over 1,000 dB additional headroom and higher resolution sound due to the new floating-point architecture.
New Pro Tools HD 10 software introduces the new AAX (Avid Audio eXtension) plug-in format, enabling better workflows and sound parity when sharing sessions between DSP-accelerated and native-based Pro Tools systems. With two formats available—AAX DSP and AAX Native—AAX opens the door to future advancements in Pro Tools technology.
Pro Tools HD 10 software comes included with the included Pro Tools|HDX, and allows users to record and play back up to 256 audio tracks per card (or play back up to 768 tracks with three cards). Extended disk cache, which can load entire sessions into RAM, ensures maximum track counts from networked-attached storage, such as Avid Unity ISIS, and slower local drives.
Up to 12 Pro Tools|HD systems can be controlled from one using the Satellite Link option. Audio can be mixed from up to two Pro Tools|HD systems with a D-Command control surface through Multi-mode.
