Avid - 'Pro Tools | Carbon'
HDX DSP-Accelerated Audio Interface

avid pro tools carbon

A New Breed of Audio InterfaceThe Avid Pro Tools | Carbon is a new breed of audio interface designed for artists, bands, and producers to capture brilliance. It’s a hybrid audio production system that comes with 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 within Pro Tools.

Featuring intelligent Pro Tools integration, you’ll work seamlessly all in one creative setting. The Hybrid Engine allows you to 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, allowing you to focus on the music you’re creating, not what you’re creating it with.

Amazing Features • Sub-1 ms latency monitoring allows for listening in perfect sync
• Plugin processing performs an amazing 22.4 billion operations per second
• 32-bit precision offers more headroom without any signal degradation
• Four ADCs per channel and a remarkable 126 dB dynamic range

The Best of Both Worlds

maximum performance

Maximum PerformanceThe Hybrid Engine maximizes the performance of Pro Tools by using your native CPU and HDX DSP processing simultaneously. 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.

Because every AAX DSP plugin has a native counterpart, you can move effortlessly between worlds at the click of a button. You can record with HDX DSP power for near-zero latency monitoring, and work natively with the same plugins.

Premium Plugins Included

aax dsp

Architected To Go BeyondAAX is the only plugin architecture with true hybrid capability. It is created to provide the same sound quality in both native and HDX DSP domains. Which means you can disconnect Carbon and take your mix on the road or collaborate with others who don’t have the interface.

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 variation 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.

HDX DSP Acceleration

avid pro tools carbon

Made To Remove BarriersWith HDX DSP acceleration under the hood, Carbon is an incrediby powerful machines built on our industry-leading technologies. It’s finely tuned to process audio at lightning speed, so you can record with rock-solid sub-1 ms latency monitoring. This means you’ll always hear yourself in perfect sync with the music as if you were playing live.

At the heart of the interface is a custom-designed, high-performance FPGA and eight HDX DSPs. The FPGA routes audio lightning fast—one sample at a time, with virtually no latency. While the HDX DSPs handle real-time plugin processing, performing an amazing 22.4 billion operations per second. So no matter how epic your session gets, or how many plugins you're using, you can record with sub-1 ms latency. It also frees up your CPU cores for additional virtual instruments and creative mixing.

A Quietly Cool Interface

thermal design

Thermal DesignEach driver has its own dedicated amplifier, the 50W A/B amp is responsible for the X-ART tweeter, whilst the midwoofer is being powered by a 100W PWM amp.

The front panel has a power switch and a control for the volume that manages the volume setting independently from the on/off switch. On the back panel you’ll discover extra controls: gain for the high frequencies (± 4dB) and two shelf filters for high and low frequencies.

Clean & True Converters

converters

Remarkable Dynamic RangeThe best sound quality starts with outstanding audio converters, Avid went the extra mile designing this one. With four ADCs per channel, the Carbon has a remarkable 126 dB dynamic range.

From input, to the HDX DSPs, and into Pro Tools, the entire gain structure works at uniform 32-bit precision, delivering more headroom without any signal degradation. Resulting in clean, natural sounding audio every time you record.

Musical & Transparent

mic preamps

Astounding Mic PreampsWith a padless design, outstanding 126 dB dynamic range, and support for 32-bit / 192 kHz audio conversion, Carbon features the cleanest most preamps ever made.

Capture performances without coloration. Bypass any preamp to use your own outboard equipment. With Variable Z built in, you can change input impedance to optimize or alter the tone of any microphone or instrument, from dynamic and ribbon mics, to guitar and bass.

Twice As Accurate Clocking

clocking

Vital PrecisionPrecision clocking is vital for distortionless, artifact-free audio, which is why Advid designed a double resolution implementation of the JetPLL™ jitter elimination technology.

An FPGA-controlled oscillator runs at 100 MHz, twice as fast as typical JetPLL-based clocks, and also twice as accurate, with extraordinarily low jitter, ensuring high-fidelity capture and playback.

Connect The Whole Band

avid pro tools carbon connections

Ethernet Is The FutureWith 25 x 34 simultaneous I/O, Carbon is capable of recording any session–from solo artists to full bands. Eight pristine preamps, four headphone outputs, and 16 channels of ADAT I/O open up creative possibilities for miking, cue mixing, and expansion. With super-fast, high-bandwidth Ethernet connectivity, it preserves the best possible quality from input to output.

Carbon connects to your computer over Ethernet, based on AVB, their version of this high-bandwidth, low-latency connection streams audio to your host system at 32-bit float precision, the first in the industry. This gives you consistently high headroom and fantastic audio quality throughout the system. It also primes Carbon for the future.
