Pro Tools | HDX Core

At Sweetwater, we’re still amazed at how powerful these cards are. Each Pro Tools | HDX Core PCIe card is like having about the equivalent of an HD3 or HD4 system on a single card. To put it mildly, that’s a ton of DSP power for your DAW! What’s more, there’s a separate FPGA processor for your mix bus, so all of your HDX card’s DSP power is dedicated to running plug-ins. Each HDX card gives you 256 voices, a full four times the routing capacity of an Accel card. That means you can freely use Avid’s AAX plug-ins, without worrying about running out of voices.


  • Incredible DSP power for Avid’s AAX plug-in format
  • 3-7 times the power of an HD Accel system on a single PCIe card
  • FPGA mix processor frees up DSP for powering plug-ins
  • Up to 256 voiceable tracks per card
  • Up to 64 channels of simultaneous I/O per card
  • Connect up to 4 HD interfaces per card
  • 64-bit floating-point summing sounds amazing
  • 32-bit floating-point processing between plug-ins preserves quality and dramatically increases headroom
  • Expand your system by adding more HDX cards
