  • HD Native Goes Thunderbolt!

    Now Mac OS X Mountain Lion compatible! With the release of Pro Tools 10.3, Avid has introduced several small improvements plus compatibility with Apple's OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion operating system.

    Avid's Pro Tools HD Native Thunderbolt gives you the same low latency, high channel count, pristine audio quality, and industry-standard DAW that you'd get from a Pro Tools HD Native PCIe card, but in a compact desktop format. If you own a modern Thunderbolt-equipped computer without PCIe slots (e.g., a MacBook Pro or Mac mini) you can finally step up to a real Pro Tools HD rig. What's more, your Pro Tools HD Native Thunderbolt specs out exactly the same as a PCIe-based HD Native card. It also comes bundled with one of Avid's premier HD audio interfaces as well as the latest version of Avid's Pro Tools HD software.

    Talk about portable! If you're in need of pristine audio quality on the go, nothing compares with the Pro Tools HD Thunderbolt. This amazing recording interface isn't just small enough to fit in your laptop case, it runs on Thunderbolt bus power, so you don't have to worry about hunting down additional power outlets. There's even an audiophile-quality headphone output on the front, perfect for mobile editing. If you're ready to step up to Pro Tools HD Native, without tying yourself down to a massive tower PC, then it's time to order your new Avid Pro Tools HD Native Thunderbolt system from Bajaao.

    Who uses Pro Tools HD Native?
    Avid's Pro Tools HD Native systems take full advantage of today's high-power computers by offering you the top features of Pro Tools HD (minus the DSP-accelerated plug-ins) at an incredible low price. On the strictly hardware side, your Pro Tools HD Native Thunderbolt gives you blazing fast I/O, near-zero latency, automatic delay compensation, and full integration with Avid's HD line of interfaces, leaving your CPU to handle plug-ins and mixing. If you're budget-minded but you still demand results from your DAW; have a high-power computer with Thunderbolt connectivity; and prefer to track with outboard signal processors (rather than plug-ins); then Pro Tools HD Native is perfect for you.

    More than an interface, you get the complete package
    The Pro Pro Tools HD Native Thunderbolt + HD I/O 8x8x8 Bundle includes an Avid Pro Tools HD Native Thunderbolt, Pro Tools HD software, and a super-flexible Avid HD I/O 8x8x8 interface. Right out of the box, you get eight channels of pristine analog I/O and an additional eight channels of versatile digital I/O - all in the Pro Tools HD DAW environment! The Pro Tools HD Native Thunderbolt hardware includes two DigiLink Mini inputs, so expanding your system with an additional HD I/O, HD Omni I/O, HD MADI I/O, or legacy 192 I/O, or 96 I/O for up to 64 channels of ultra-low-latency I/O is easy.

    Pro Tools HD software - the industry standard DAW
    Other than DSP-accelerated plug-in support, Pro Tools HD software runs the same with a Pro Tools HD Native Thunderbolt system as it does with a Pro Tools HDX or legacy Accel system. You get 192 channels of audio (64 at 192kHz), as well as 7.1 surround sound support, Copy to Send, complete multitrack Beat Detective, and automatic delay compensation, as well as other great functions previously unavailable for a native Pro Tools system. And if you're stepping up from a non HD family Pro Tools system, you'll get all of the plug-ins you already know and love, plus incredible sound quality you've never experienced before - all for an amazing low price!
