The HDX PCIe card utilizes Avid's Hybrid Engine technology, which enables your CPU to handle all processing, voice count, and mixing—ideal for recording and mixing the biggest sessions smoothly, with tons of plug-ins running. When you need to supplement your CPU power, the Hybrid Engine gives you on-demand access to the ultralow latency capabilities of HDX (0.7 ms). Simply put a track in DSP Mode to offload its entire signal chain and AAX DSP-compatible plug-ins to HDX. You can toggle back to native processing at the touch of a button, so you can move seamlessly between tracking and mixing without the hassle of latency. The Hybrid Engine also enables a massive 2048 simultaneous voices at all sample rates for any HDX system.
The Pro Tools | HDX Thunderbolt 3 Desktop Chassis houses a single HDX PCIe card in a convenient desktop form factor. It enables you to connect your MTRX Studio to your Thunderbolt-equipped Mac or Windows computer, allowing you to use Avid's industry-standard DSP-accelerated system with computers that lack a PCIe slot.
The MTRX Studio Interface is a versatile, I/O monitoring and routing unit optimized for music and post-production projects of any size. It gives you two microphone inputs, two 1/4" mic/instrument inputs, two monitoring outputs, two headphone jacks, and 16 channels of analog I/O via DB25 connections. With 64 channels of Dante plus the 512 x 512 matrix in DADman, you can route any MTRX Studio input to any output, expanding your workflow possibilities. The unit also enables you to mix and monitor 7.1.4 Dolby Atmos immersive audio.
