Avid Carbon pre

Expand your Pro Tools Carbon-powered studio with up to 24 channels of mic/line inputs and more. Each Pro Tools Carbon Pre offers the same premium audio performance as Carbon and features eight premium mic/line preamps with variable input impedance for greater sonic flexibility and stacked ADCs for maximum dynamic range. 32-bit floating-point conversion ensures pristine conversion from start to finish, capturing every sonic detail. Use the Pro Tools Hybrid Engine for low-latency input processing - with on-demand remote control of all channels from Pro Tools.

Pro Tools Carbon Pre not only works with Pro Tools Carbon, but can also be used as an 8-channel mic preamp expansion unit with an existing Pro Tools HDX or HD Native system to expand your I/O. Or replace an older Pro Tools PRE audio interface and benefit from better performance and pristine sound quality. Integrate up to nine Carbon pre-interfaces into a single Pro Tools HD system via your interface's ADAT inputs, and take advantage of the flexibility to remotely control and recall all preamps directly from Pro Tools.
