Hear what you've been missing
Capture performances with great sound transparency from anywhere in your studio. Pro Tools | PRE is a high-performance, 8-channel microphone preamp designed for and integrated into Pro Tools | HD systems. With it, you can remotely control and record sessions easily from the control room and easily recall those setting later. Connect eight mics, instruments, or line inputs. Achieve incredible sonic clarity. Use it with Pro Tools | HD or standalone. It’s the ideal analog front end for any recording rig.
Connect your gear to eight XLR inputs with high-performance, matched-transistor, hybrid mic preamp circuits and eight 1/4″ line/instrument inputs. You also have eight sends and returns to connect a hardware compressor, EQ, and other outboard gear.
View the current input gain of any selected PRE channel and easily notch it up or down in increments of 3 dB—right from Pro Tools or a control surface. You can also recall settings too.
With the 14-segment LED Peak meter, you can view a selected channel’s input signal level and get an idea of its overall dynamic range. There’s also a Clip indicator to alert you to possible distortion trouble when a signal goes in the red, so you can act accordingly.
Easily select any of the eight channels and engage PRE’s built-in high pass filter, phase reverse, 48V of phantom power, Line/DI select, and/or the -18 dB pad. You can even conveniently mute channels right from the interface.
