Avid Technology Pro Tools | Carbon ™ Hybrid Audio Production System
Pro Tools | Carbon lets you get the best out of your performances and record them perfectly, thanks to its high sound quality and efficient integration with Pro Tools. In addition, with HDX DSP acceleration, Carbon allows you to record, edit and mix in a single application without switching between different software and with zero latency.
Audio interface designed for artists, bands and producers. Includes one licence of Pro Tools Ultimate Perpetual
Includes: Pro Tools | Carbon interface, power cable, CAT-6 Ethernet cable, rubber feet to use Carbon on your desk or a rackmount kit, one licence of Pro Tools Standard Subscription or Renewal Perpetual, and over 70 AAX plugins.
It combines input/output quality and DSP accelerators that amplify the computing power of your CPU, creating a hybrid audio production system.
You can build complex mixes while recording with AAX DSP plug-ins in real time with ultra-low latency, all within Pro Tools.
With 25 inputs and 34 outputs, Carbon is capable of recording any type of session - from a single artist to a full band.
Eight transparent preamps, four headphone outputs, 16 ADAT in and out channels provide a variety of possibilities. The Ethernet connection over AVB protocol allows the best quality to be maintained from inputs to outputs.
