HEAT Up Your Mixes!
Note: HEAT requires Pro Tools 8.1 or higher. It is not compatible with earlier versions of Pro Tools|HD software.
Add some fire to your mixes with HEAT (Harmonically Enhanced Algorithm Technology), the latest sonic advancement from Avid. Designed in conjunction with legendary designer Dave Hill of Cranesong, HEAT brings analog soul to your Pro Tools|HD sessions. Not a plug-in, HEAT is built right into your mixer window and endows you with the ability to change the sound of the entire "board" on a global level. The key to HEAT's magic lies in the Drive and Tone controls. Drive faithfully emulates the non-linear processing of magnetic tape merged with the harmonic content that naturally occurs with tape, letting you dial in a fatness that smoothes high-frequency transients. The Tone control gives you control over the amount of brightness that get accentuated, and works in conjunction with the Drive control to add analog magic to your sound. Get HEAT and see what your mixes have been missing.
