I/O expansion unit for up to two Pro Tools Carbon interfaces enabling up to 24 mic/line inputs and 24 line outputs
Expand your Pro Tools Carbon-powered studio up to 24 channels of mic/line inputs and more. Sonically exceptional, each Avid Pro Tools Carbon PRE delivers the same world-class audio performance as Carbon, providing eight premium mic/line preamps with variable input impedance for greater tonal flexibility, and stacked ADCs for maximum dynamic range. With 32-bit float point providing pristine conversion from end to end, you can capture every sonic detail. Tap into the Pro Tools Hybrid Engine for low-latency input processing—with recallable remote control of all channels through Pro Tools. You can even use Carbon PRE to expand or replace preamps in a Pro Tools HD system.
Get all the inputs you need for large tracking sessions and multi-mic live recordings. Each Pro Tools Carbon PRE provides eight mic/line preamps and eight line outputs, enabling you to expand your Pro Tools Carbon-based studio up to 24 mic/line inputs and 24 line outputs total. Two Hi-Z instrument inputs, 8 x 8 line I/O, ADAT I/O, and Word Clock I/O provide even more connection versatility.
Get impeccable sound quality across your entire system, from capture to output. With superior audio conversion, stacked ADCs, double resolution clocking, and our most transparent preamp design ever—the same preamps as in Pro Tools Carbon—you can capture every sonic nuance of a performance with the greatest depth, dimension, and clarity. Even optimize or color the tone of any mic or instrument input with Variable Z impedance switching.
No need to access your interface to make changes. You can remotely control, save, and recall all of your preamp settings—including phantom power, gain, and impedance switching—directly in Pro Tools across all Pro Tools Carbon-connected interfaces. And with instant session recall, courtesy of the virtual assistant, you can quickly switch between sessions without any manual setup and reconfiguration delay.
With up to 24 channels available in an expanded system, you can capture live performances easily in pristine sound quality, making it an ideal companion for your next gig. You can also use Pro Tools Carbon PRE as a standalone preamp, enabling you to use it to expand other systems. And because it’s EUCON-enabled, it integrates with Avid control surfaces for seamless recording and mix control.
Got an existing Pro Tools system that needs more mic pres? Use Pro Tools Carbon PRE as an 8-channel preamp expansion unit to scale up your I/O, with the flexibility of remotely controlling and recalling all preamps right from Pro Tools. Or replace an aging Pro Tools PRE and enjoy better performance and pristine sound quality. Integrate up to nine Carbon PREs in a Pro Tools HD system through your interface’s ADAT inputs.
