Get the absolute highest audio quality and unprecedented I/O flexibility with HD I/O, a high-performance Pro Tools® HD Series audio interface that’s designed to completely integrate with Avid® Pro Tools|HD systems. While its sleek look resembles prior generation interfaces, HD I/O has been completely redesigned on the inside with high-quality electronics, giving you pristine A/D and D/A conversion, low latency, and maximum flexibility to integrate with a variety analog and digital gear.

A sonic improvement over its audio interface predecessors, HD I/O features premium A/D and D/A conversion, so you can achieve higher audio fidelity, extensive dynamic range, super-low jitter, and the absolute lowest possible latency in your sessions. With certain configurations, you also get built-in sample rate conversion and a soft clip feature for worry-free performance. And using Curv, a new built-in soft-knee limiter that catches even the fastest transients, you can track hotter signals and smooth out inconsistent levels from incoming sources.

HD I/O comes in three configurations, so you can choose the interface that best suits your connection needs. What’s more, you can expand your analog or digital I/O anytime by simply installing an HD I/O option card into any empty bay (HD I/O 16x16 Analog cannot be expanded, as all four bays are occupied).

Features:

  • Pristine audio clarity and ultra low latency through state-of-the-art A/D and D/A conversion, premium analog circuitry, and meticulous attention to design
  • Adapt the interface for your needs—choose from three configurations:
    • Get a balance of analog and digital I/O with HD I/O 8x8x8
    • Maximize your analog I/O with HD I/O 16x16 Analog
    • Go all digital with HD I/O 16x16 Digital
  • Versatile digital I/O on all interfaces, with built-in sample rate conversion
  • Expand or customize the I/O with analog= or digital option cards
  • Completely integrates with Pro Tools|HD for full input, output, and routing control
  • Track hotter signals and smooth out sounds with Curv, a new built-in soft-knee limiter
  • Keep things in sync with dedicated Word Clock and Loop Sync I/O
  • Keep an eye on your levels easily through 32 4-segment metering LEDs
  • Robust 2U rack-mountable chassis
  • Connects to Pro Tools|HD through a DigiLink™ Mini connection (cable and adapter included)

Specifications:

  • High-quality analog I/O:
    • 8 analog inputs (using DB25)
    • 8 analogoutputs (using DB25)
  • Versatile digital I/O:
    • 8 channels of AES/EBU I/O (supports 192 kHz single-wire and dual-wire)
    • 8 channels of TDIF I/O
    • 8 channels of ADATI/O (supports S/MUX II and IV)
