Receive exceptional sound
Digital Audio Denmark’s (DAD’s) AD and DA converters are renowned for delivering the cleanest, most transparent, and highly detailed sound. Pro Tools | MTRX is no exception, enabling you to get the best sound quality possible from your Pro Tools | HD system—up to super-high-resolution 384 kHz DSD. And because it does double duty as both an audio I/O and monitor interface, it offers exceptional versatility too.
Expand your monitor control
Take full remote control of all sources, monitors, and speaker sets directly from Pro Tools | S6, other EUCON-enabled control surfaces, and the included DADman software. Pro Tools | MTRX includes Pro | Mon 2, putting complete monitoring, talkback, summing, and fold-down control at your fingertips, whether you’re mixing in mono, stereo, 5.1, 7.1, 9.1, or even a 64-channel immersive audio mix.
Get the I/O you need
Pro Tools | MTRX is fully modular, so you can customize it with a wide variety of I/O and interface options. From analog inputs, outputs, and high-quality mic pres, to Dante, MADI, AES3, 3G-SDI, and more, you have the interface versatility you need to connect with any type of gear and route any signal between the various I/O formats.
Route audio with abandon
Using DADman software, you can route, split, and patch audio quickly, flexibly, and extensively, with a matrix capacity of up to 1,500 x 1,500 cross points. You can feed any input to any output, or even send audio to multiple outputs simultaneously, giving you unlimited workflow possibilities.
- Design an interface for your specific needs
Inputs. Outputs. Analog. Digital. Remote-controllable mic pres and more. You can have it all thanks to eight card slots inviting you to mix and match whatever mic, line, MADI, Dante, AES3, SDI, and other I/O you desire. With up to three MADI ports on the chassis, plus eight dual MADI cards as options, you can also configure MTRX as a 19 x 19 MADI router. You get the versatility you need to connect with the widest array of gear and devices and into today’s multifaceted studio environments.
- Get the highest possible audio quality
Pro Tools | MTRX shines when used as a high-performance 64-channel audio interface for Pro Tools | HD.
