Pro Tools | Carbon Pre
8-channel AVB preamplifier
Expand your studio powered by Pro Tools | Carbon with up to 24 mic/line inputs. The Pro Tools | Carbon Pre is an 8-channel preamp with the same transparent preamp design and stacked ADCs as Carbon, offering 32-bit conversion to capture every sonic detail. With a Carbon Expanded system, you can use the Pro Tools Hybrid Engine for low latency input processing and control the preamp remotely via Pro Tools. Or use Carbon Pre to expand or replace preamps in a Pro Tools | HD system.
Expand your studio
This gives you all the inputs you need for large tracking sessions and live recording with multiple microphones. Each Pro Tools | Carbon pre provides eight mic/line preamps and eight line outputs, so you can expand your Pro Tools | Carbon-based studio to a total of 24 mic/line inputs and 24 line outputs. With two variable inputs for Z-Instruments, 8 x 8 line I/O, ADAT I/O, and word clock I/O, you get more variety in your connections..
Speed up your workflow
You can remotely control, save, and recall all of your preamp's settings - including phantom power, gain, and impedance switching - directly in Pro Tools from any user interface connected to Pro Tools | Carbon.
Expand your workflow capabilities
With up to 24 mic/line inputs in a Carbon Expanded system, you can easily record live performances in premium sound quality, making it the ideal companion for your next gig.
