Avid HD OMNI Interface - Preamp, I/O, and Monitoring for Pro Tools HD

Avid HD OMNI Interface - Preamp, I/O, and Monitoring for PT HD front

The Avid Pro Tools HD OMNI is an all-in-one professional preamp, I/O, and monitoring interface for Pro Tools|HD family systems. Capture pristine, high-resolution audio through premium mic preamps, connect your gear to a wide array of analog and digital I/O, and monitor your sessions in up to 7.1 surround - with ultra-low latency - all in one compact, cost-effective interface.

Hear what you've been missing

If you're familiar with our older “blue” Pro Tools | HD interfaces, your ears are in for a major treat. Experience significantly better audio fidelity, wider dynamic range, and super-low jitter thanks to sophisticated A/D and D/A conversion and a new analog front-end. Capture and play back every audio detail. Retain the warmth and presence of your original sources. And get the lowest possible latency when recording.

Track, mix, and monitor in one

With HD OMNI, you can do it all with a single rack space interface—whether you make music or create sound for picture. Capture high-quality instrument and vocal performances (with 4x8 analog or 8x8 digital support). Record overdubs, or track ADR and Foley for a soundtrack. Provide cue mixes for artists. Hear your own discrete mix. Monitor in stereo or up to 7.1 surround right from the front panel. And because there’s no need to route signals across multiple interfaces, you save both time and money.

Listen your way

Choose how you want to listen... Hear mixes in stereo or surround. Monitor through speakers or your cans. Create a personal mix for performers while listening to your own. Compare a mix on different speaker sets. And if you don't feel like launching Pro Tools, HD OMNI also functions as a persistent mixer, so you can monitor a keyboard, drum machine, or music player independently from your recording setup.

Optimize your sound

Connect your digital gear without the hassle, with built-in sample rate conversion offered on all digital inputs. Maximize your analog input signals, without any harsh clipping, with the soft clip feature. Plus, you'll be able to track hotter signals and smooth out inconsistent levels from incoming sources.
