Eventide has introduced the Pro Tools | HD Expansion Card for its H9000 multi- effects processor that’s implemented within Pro Tools I/O and plugin user interfaces so production can benefit from processing and effects flexibility, 1,600-plus Eventide algorithms, and the H9000’s ARM-based DSP.
The H9000 Pro Tools|Expansion Card has two H9000 setup menu selectable modes of operation – 32 channels In/Out (primary port only) or 16 channels (primary port) + 16 channels pass-thru to secondary port (for connecting other HD devices). Within Pro Tools, the H9000 appears as an HD I/O device (16 or 32 channels, depending on the selected mode). Digital sync selection options are Internal, (Loop Sync Master), Word-clock, Loop Sync, AES, SPDIF, and OPTICAL.
As with other HD devices interfaced to Pro Tools, H9000 sample rate is controlled by Pro Tools. 16 x 16 analog I/O can be enabled with Pro Tools display monitoring of analog gain control levels. Pro Tools automatic latency compensation for signals processed in the H9000 is based on Avid HD I/O specs.
