More audio professionals around the world use Pro Tools| HD for their work than any other digital audio workstation. Whether you’re a music producer, engineer, sound editor, musician, composer, sound designer, remixer, or artist, you can do it all with Pro Tools|HD.

HD Native PCIe card and Pro Tools HD software— Unlike USB- or FireWire-based DAWs, which are inherently prone to latency, Pro Tools|HD Native employs a high-speed PCIe core card, greatly improving monitoring while recording. By eliminating distracting latency, increasing your I/O capabilities, and providing 64-bit floating-point processing for more headroom and a higher mix resolution, you get a professional native solution that meets the highest audio standards. And with the tight integration of Pro Tools HD software, included, you have all the tools you need for studio-quality music and audio production.
