Pro Tools | SYNC HD
Sync your studio
Keep your Pro Tools rigs and other connected gear in total sync—no matter how massive your media production. Pro Tools | SYNC HD is the ultimate low-jitter master clock. Designed for Pro Tools | HD systems, it provides near sample-accurate lock to serial timecode and resolves your system to house reference. It's a must when working with large-scale music productions or sound for picture. If you have multiple audio interfaces and digital devices in your studio setup, SYNC HD offers the stability, consistency, and reliability you need to keep all of your gear running smoothly together—with impeccable precision.
SYNC HD provides a wide variety of connections to sync your gear. Get all of the usual suspects to connect to Linear Timecode, Word Clock, NTSC/PAL sources, black burst generators, digital audio signals, and MachineControl-enabled systems, as well as Bi-Phase, Tach, and Pilot devices.
Easily select SYNC HD’s clock reference with just the press of a button. The interface supports all major industry-standard clock sources, including Word Clock, HD and SD Video Reference, AES/EBU, Composite Video In, LTC, and more.
Select the timecode frame rate and format (drop-frame or non-drop-frame) with a simple button press. You can scope your current rate by the lit green LED indicator next to 30, 29.97, 25, and 24 fps—or a flashing 24 fps LED indicator when using 23.976 fps. And the “DF” LED will light to indicate drop-frame formats.
View incoming timecode, as well as various function settings, on the multifunction LED display. See timecode displayed in hours : minutes : seconds : frames. Or use the controls below the display to configure timecode generator settings, PAL/NTSC selection, sample rate, and more while viewing those modes, parameters, and settings on the LED.
