Built to capture brilliance. And ready for yours.
With superior sound quality and intelligent software integration, Avid 9900-74103-00 Pro Tools | Carbon removes barriers to creativity, so you can bring out the best in your performance and capture it beautifully.
Power and simplicity that drive your creative spark.
With HDX DSP acceleration under the hood and deep Pro Tools integration, Carbon has the power to keep pace with your imagination. Create in the moment, free from technical hassles. And focus on the music you're making-not what you're making it with.
Epic performance eliminates latency.
Carbon is cut from the same cloth as our flagship Pro Tools systems used in the world's most acclaimed studios. Its custom-designed FPGA and eight HDX DSPs achieve remarkable sub-1 ms recording latency and free up your computer to run big, plugin-heavy sessions smoothly.
Fast, intuitive, and fully integrated.
Move effortlessly between tracking and mixing-without messing with buffer settings. The magic is in the Hybrid Engine, which lets you toggle tracks in and out of DSP Mode at the touch of a button. Record naturally through real-time AAX DSP plugins, without distracting latency. Then mix with the same plugins in Native Mode, without taxing Carbon's onboard DSP.
Turn your music into records.
From idea to final mix, Pro Tools is the heartbeat of your studio. And with Carbon turbocharging the experience, as well as a suite of hit-making AAX plugins at your fingertips, you can act on inspiration the instant it strikes.
Superior audio conversion. Double resolution clocking. And our most transparent preamp design ever. All details have been meticulously considered, so that Carbon captures every nuance of your performance with the greatest depth, dimension, and clarity.
Converters and preamps. Musical and transparent.
With four ADCs per channel and pristine 32-bit precision throughout its gain structure, Carbon captures clean, natural-sounding audio without coloration. And with Variable Z built in, you can optimize or alter the tone of any microphone or instrument by simply adjusting input impedance.
High-resolution clocking. Flawless sound.
Precision clocking is crucial for distortionless, artifact-free audio. That's why we designed a double resolution implementation of the JetPLLT jitter elimination technology to ensure the best sound quality for your music. It runs twice as fast as typical JetPLL clocks-and it's twice as accurate.
Connect the whole band.
Whether you're a solo artist or part of a band, Carbon has your I/O needs covered. With 25 x 34 simultaneous I/O-including eight mic pres and four headphone outs-you can record your entire band..
The future is Ethernet.
Carbon connects to your computer over Ethernet using a proprietary version of AVB to stream audio at 32-bit float precision-a first in the industry.
