For the past two decades, Avid has been synonymous with excellence in non-linear editing, initially in the video area. Since acquiring Digidesign, Avid has expanded it’s market to include all levels of professional audio recording with the industry standard Pro Tools recording software and hardware.

Whether you work with music or sound for picture, HD I/O gives you professional-grade audio quality, high performance conversion, and the flexibility to integrate with a variety analog and digital gear, so you can quickly adapt the interface to meet whatever need comes your way.

  • 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:
    • 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 adaptor included)

    Hear What You’ve Been Missing

    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 recording. 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.

    The Connections You Need—Now and Later

    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 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).

    • High-quality analog I/O:
      • 16 analog inputs (using DB25)
      • 16 analog outputs (using DB25)
    • Additional digital I/O:
      • 2 channels of AES/EBU I/O (supports 192 kHz single-wire)
      • 2 channels of S/PDIF I/O
      • 8 channels of ADAT I/O (supports S/MUX II and IV)

    Work with Pro Tools and More

    HD I/O and all other Pro Tools HD Series interfaces completely integrate with Pro Tools|HD, so you get maximum performance, dependability, and control of your inputs, outputs, and routing right from your Pro Tools software interface. You’ll also get higher production quality and greater workflow flexibility than with previous Pro Tools interfaces. And if you want to use your interface with Pro Tools|HD and other DAW software, you can do that too, as all Pro Tools|HD systems support Core Audio and ASIO drivers.
