The Avid Pro Tools | Carbon is a 1U 24/32 hardware interface with 8 mic preamps and 115 AAX DSP plugins included



For artists, bands, and producers, Pro Tools | Carbon is a new breed of audio interface-built to capture brilliance. It's a hybrid audio production system that features incredible sound quality and combines the power of your native CPU with onboard HDX DSP acceleration. So you can push your computer to the limit when you mix and record through AAX DSP plugins with near-zero latency monitoring. All at the touch of a button. All in Pro Tools.

Hardware and software. Made for each other.
With intelligent Pro Tools integration, you'll work smoothly all in one creative environment. The Hybrid Engine lets you offload real-time AAX DSP plugin processing to Carbon at will. This means you can record with a polished sound that brings out the best in your performance. No more third-party apps to slow you down. Just focus on the music you're making-not what you're making it with.

The best in both worlds.
The Hybrid Engine maximizes the performance of Pro Tools by using your native CPU and HDX DSP processing at the same time. When you put a track in DSP Mode, Carbon accelerates real-time AAX DSP plugins while your CPU plays back the rest of your mix. And because every AAX DSP plugin has a native counterpart, you can move seamlessly between worlds-just click a button. Record with HDX DSP power for near-zero latency monitoring. And work natively with the same plugins.

Premium plugins included.
In addition to the 116 AAX plugins that come with Pro Tools-which include the Avid Complete Plugin Bundle, HEAT, and UVI Falcon-Carbon comes with a collection of premium plugins and sounds to get you started. Produce with virtual instruments from UVI and Native Instruments. Emulate mix environments with spatial audio processing from Embody. Dial in polished sounds with premium AAX DSP dynamics, EQs, and reverbs from McDSP, Arturia, and Plugin Alliance. And get 3 free months of Auto-Tune Unlimited. Then when you're ready to take your sound further, there are thousands of AAX plugins and over 250 more AAX DSP available.
