updated 09:50 pm EDT, Mon September 10, 2012

Boasts lowest latency, highest performance of any DAW

Pro audio hardware and software maker Avid has announced its first Thunderbolt interface for audio workstation leader Pro Tools. The new Pro Tools HD Native Thunderbolt external interface or PCIe card gives the editing suite the best performance and lowest latency of any digital recording studio package, the company says.

Pro Tools HD Native is sold as a complete system that includes a choice of HD Native core technology, either Thunderbolt or PCI-E card; Pro Tools HD software, and a choice of Pro Tools HD series audio interfaces.

A package consisting of Pro Tools HD Native with either Thunberbolt or PCI-E, with the Pro Tools HD software, and the HD Omni system retails for $5,000. The same system with HD I/O rather than the Omni is available for $6,000. Owners of the Digi 002, Digi 003, or Mbox Pro can exchange hardware towards the purchase of Pro Tools HD Native, Pro Tools HD software, and HD OMNI bundle at a reduced retail price of $4,000.
