Digidesign (www.digidesign.com) announced the release of the HD Accel PCI card for Pro Tools|HD. The new card delivers nearly twice the DSP power of existing HD cards and offers 50% higher voice counts across all sample rates (44.1 to 192 kHz). Accel may be added to any Pro Tools|HD system and will provide exclusive access to new, HD Accel-optimized plug-ins and features, including Digidesign’s new Impact mix bus compressor TDM plug-in (available immediately). Accel integrates with the entire line of Pro Tools|HD audio interfaces and peripherals, so all previous Digidesign hardware investments remain viable. Pro Tools TDM 6.2 software, now shipping with all Pro Tools|HD systems, is the first release to support the new HD Accel cards. See Digidesign’s Website for info on its special limited-time Accel exchange/upgrade program, which ends December 20, 2003. MSRP for Pro Tools|HD 2 Accel (Core and one Accel Process card) is $10,995 and Pro Tools|HD 3 Accel (Core and two HD Accel Process cards) is $13,995.
