AVID Carbon Pre
Carbon Pre enables Pro Tools Carbon owners to expand their studio with up to 24 channels of world-class mic and line preamps. Carbon’s mic and instrument preamps feature variable input impedance, stacked ADCs and 32-bit conversion that capture everything you hear and feel with exceptional detail. You can also take advantage of the Pro Tools Hybrid Engine for low-latency input processing – just connect Carbon Pre directly to Carbon with a single Cat5e able and Pro Tools automatically connects and provides remote control for all channels.
Carbon is truly designed with a focus on the art of recording. It captures full 32-bit audio right at the converters to give you the maximum dynamic range throughout the entire system. Plus, Carbon’s low-noise mic preamps have variable impedance, which lets you subtly change the tone of your mics. Now, you can record knowing that you are capturing every bit of goodness you hear in the room. With multiple ADCs applied to each input and industry-leading double-precision clocking, you’ll hear and feel every nuance in your recordings.
