New Pro Tools HD Native Upgrade Paths

It is now possible to upgrade from a Pro Tools HD system to a new Pro Tools HD Native system. Previously, the only upgrade path from HD was to HDX.

The HD Native path is a cheaper option compared to HDX, and although there is no on-board DSP for the mixer and AAX plug-ins, HD Native still provides the lowest non-HD/HDX latency figures around.

It also gives users the opportunity to move to a Thunderbolt based system if they want/need to move away from PCI/PCIe.

To take advantage of these upgrade paths, you need to surrender your existing HD Core card and any single interface. You do not need to trade in a comparable interface, so you could use a 96I/O against a HD I/O MADI for example.
