    Avid HD I/O 16x16 Analog
    Get the absolute highest audio quality and unprecedented I/O flexibility with Avid HD I/O, a high-performance Pro Tools HD Series audio interface that’s designed to completely integrate with Pro Tools|HD systems. While its sleek look resembles its prior generation interfaces, HD I/O has been completely redesigned on the inside with high-quality electronics, giving you pristine, best-in-class A/D and D/A conversion and the lowest possible latency. Plus, with three configurations to choose from and a modular design, you can expand and customize the interface for your connection needs.

    Whether you work with music or sound for picture, HD I/O gives you professional-grade audio quality, high performance conversion, and the flexibility to integrate with a variety analog and digital gear, so you can quickly adapt the interface to meet whatever need comes your way.

    • Adapt the interface for your needs—choose from three configurations:
      • Get a balance of analog and digital I/O with HD I/O 8x8x8
      • Maximize your analog I/O with HD I/O 16x16 Analog
      • Go all digital with HD I/O 16x16 Digital
    • Versatile digital I/O on all interfaces, with built-in sample rate conversion
    • Expand or customize the I/O with analog or digital option cards
    • Completely integrates with Pro Tools|HD for full input, output, and routing control
    • Track hotter signals and smooth out sounds with Curv, a new built-in soft-knee limiter

    Hear What You’ve Been Missing
    A sonic improvement over its audio interface predecessors, HD I/O features premium A/D and D/A conversion, so you can achieve higher audio fidelity, extensive dynamic range, super-low jitter, and the absolute lowest possible latency in your sessions. With certain configurations, you also get built-in sample rate conversion and a soft clip feature for worry-free recording. And using Curv, a new built-in soft-knee limiter that catches even the fastest transients, you can track hotter signals and smooth out inconsistent levels from incoming sources.

    The Connections You Need—Now and Later
    HD I/O comes in three configurations, so you can choose the interface that best suits your connection needs. What’s more, you can expand your analog or digital I/O by simply installing an HD I/O option card into any empty bay (HD I/O 16x16 Analog cannot be expanded, as all four bays are occupied).

    HD I/O 8x8x8
    The perfect choice when you need a balance of analog and digital I/O for your music or post-production projects, with the option to expand your I/O.

    • High-quality analog I/O:
      • 8 analog inputs (using DB25)
      • 8 analog outputs (using DB25)
      • Versatile digital I/O:
      • 8 channels of AES/EBU I/O (supports 192 kHz single-wire and dual-wire)
      • 8 channels of TDIF I/O

    • Versatile digital I/O:
      • 16 channels of AES/EBU I/O (supports 192 kHz single-wire and dual-wire)
      • 16 channels of TDIF I/O
      • 16 channels of ADAT I/O (supports S/MUX II and IV)

    • Two empty bays for I/O expansion

    The Ultimate in Interface Flexibility
    As your needs grow or change, you can easily add more analog inputs, analog outputs, or digital I/O by installing an option card. You can install one option card in HD I/O 8x8x8 and up to two in HD I/O 16x16 Digital. While HD I/O 16x16 Analog comes with the maximum four cards, you can customize your I/O by swapping out any card.

    • HD I/O AD Option: Adds 8 high-fidelity analog inputs (using DB25)
    • HD I/O DA Option: Adds 8 high-fidelity analog outputs (using DB25)
    • HD I/O Digital Option: Adds 8 channels each of AES/EBU (supports 192 kHz single-wire and dual-wire), TDIF, and ADAT (supports S/MUX II and IV) I/O

    Work with Pro Tools and More
