The Avid Pro Tools Carbon is an 8x8 AVB interface with ADAT. It has eight preamps (4 with variable impedance), four headphone outs, two hi-z inputs and up to 4 pairs of monitor outs.
The Avid Pro Tools Carbon connects to your computer or network via ethernet and can offload some processing directly onto the built-in DSP without needing an HDX DSP card. It provides an ideal all-in-one portable recording setup, giving you the performance of Pro Tools’ Flagship HDX system in a convenient 1U package.
Audio Video Bridge
The Avid Pro Tools Carbon uses the Audio Video Bridge (AVB) protocol to connect to your system via ethernet instead of Avid’s usual Mini DigiLink connectors.
The AVB protocol ensures low latency and superior synchronisation of your data with data prioritisation to ensure no data loss during transfer.
Using the years of experience gained using the AVB protocol on their Venue range of live consoles, Avid now brings this technology to the studio.
Built-in HDX performance
The Pro Tools Carbon also includes 9 TI DSP chips offering built-in HDX operation.
Used in combination with Pro Tools 2020.11, it allows you to offload locally processed channels onto the HDX chips allowing to increase channel counts and processing power without the need for a separate HDX card.
Pro Tools Carbon Package
Pro Tools Carbon includes the Avid Complete Plugin bundle, as well as seven software instruments and an Avid Pro Tools licence.
Ultimate licence owners will receive an additional year of updates included in the price.
