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.
These upgrade systems include Pro Tools HD 10/11 software along with 2 x Tier 3 and 1 x Tier 2 Plug-In Activation cards. The activaion cards can be used on the products listed below:
Tier-2 High-Quality Plug-Ins ($299 each)

- Moogerfooger Bundle
- Pro Limiter
