At the 141st AES Conference and Exhibition in Los Angeles, in booth #303, Avid introduced Pro Tools | MTRX, a new audio interface for Pro Tools | HDX and HD Native. Developed by Digital Audio Denmark for Avid, Pro Tools | MTRX gives Pro Tools users the superior sonic quality of DAD’s A/D and D/A converters, along with flexible monitoring, I/O, and routing capabilities, in one unit. Powered by Avid’s MediaCentral Platform, it integrates seamlessly with Pro Tools | S6 and Pro Tools | S3 control surfaces.
Pro Tools | MTRX will enable users to gain extended monitor control and flexible routing with Pro Tools | S6, S3, and other EUCON surfaces; use the converter as a high-performance 64-channel Pro Tools | HD interface; connect and route an entire studio through AES3, MADI, Dante, and/or SDI I/O (MADI, Dante and SDI I/O option cards are sold separately); add high-quality mic preamps as an option and remotely control them from Pro Tools; customize Pro Tools | MTRX to their needs through eight available 8-channel card slots; keep everything in sync through Word Clock, AES11, Video, and all digital I/O; and receive automatic sample rate conversion on AES inputs.
Avid states that Pro Tools | MTRX will be available in Q4 2016.
