Pro Tools|HD functionality with a price that's closer to Pro Tools LE
For years, Sweetwater customers have been asking for a system that bridges the gap between Pro Tools|HD and Pro Tools LE in both features and price. The wait is over, and we're absolutely blown away by the power and value Pro Tools|HD Native offers. Here's how it works: Pro Tools|HD Native gives you the ultra-low-latency I/O and off-the-charts sound quality of HD, while your own computer's CPU manages plug-in power and mixing. The Pro Tools|HD Native Core PCIe card itself handles up to 64 channels of blazing fast I/O via one of Avid's HD interfaces. On top of that, you get the same Pro Tools|HD software used by the biggest recording houses in the world, including full 7.1 surround sound support, multitrack Beat Detective, automatic delay compensation, and much more! It's time to step up the Pro Tools|HD Native!

|Pro Tools LE is perfect for anyone into home recording and has been used by semi-professional and even entry-level professional studios. Its modest track count and simultaneous recording channel count are more than sufficient for small projects. A lack of automatic delay compensation and limited I/O keep plug-in and outboard gear integration minimal, but the low price of Pro Tools LE makes it incredibly accessible.||If you have a powerful computer and have outgrown your LE rig, then Pro Tools|HD Native is the logical next step for you. Automatic delay compensation as well as the low-latency I/O and high-quality conversion possible with Pro Tools|HD Native are absolutely essential for semi-professional or professional production. And with up to 64 simultaneous tracks of I/O, integrating outboard gear into your rig is easy.||Designed to meet the standards of the world's top recording professionals, Pro Tools|HD provides the DSP that is absolutely essential for full-scale audio and music production. The coprocessors found on HD Accel cards Not only provide the power needed to run intensely detailed TDM/HD plug-ins, but they also handle all mixing functions, allowing you to use these plug-ins during tracking, without experiencing any latency.|
