Avid HDX DSP-acceleration gives you massive processing power

Each Avid HDX card is like having about the equivalent of an HD3 or HD4 system on a single card. To put it mildly, that's a ton of DSP power for your DAW! What's more, there's a separate FPGA processor for your mix bus, so all of your HDX card's DSP power is dedicated to running plug-ins. Each HDX card gives you 256 voices, a full four times the routing capacity of an Accel card. That means you can freely use Avid's new AAX plug-ins, without worrying about running out of voices.

Here's where it gets even cooler. HDX cards and AAX plug-ins are ready for a 64-bit world. Although Pro Tools HD is still in transition from 32-bit to 64-bit, you still get the advantages of onboard 64-bit architecture. For one thing, the HDX summing bus is true 64-bit, giving you amazing headroom to mix with. Speaking of headroom, Pro Tools|HDX also gives you 32-bit floating-point processing between plug-ins, increasing your mix bus's dynamic range to over 1,000dB. That makes clipping and dither buildup things of the past.

HD I/O (8 x 8 x 8) Avid HD series recording interface

The HD I/O from Avid offers unrivaled fidelity and lower latency than any HD series interface to date. To make tracking with the HD I/O easier than ever, Avid gave it their fantastic soft-knee analog limiter. This dynamics processor, named Curv, catches fast transients, letting you track hotter without clipping. What's more, the Curv won't unnecessarily color your sound, so you get top-quality completely headache free. This version of the HD I/O is equipped with eight channels of analog I/O and eight channels of digital I/O.
