Hear what you've been missing
A sonic improvement over its audio interface predecessors, HD I/O features premium A/D and D/A conversion, so you can achieve higher audio fidelity, extensive dynamic range, super-low jitter, and the absolute lowest possible latency in your sessions. With certain configurations, you also get built-in sample rate conversion and a soft clip feature for worry-free recording. And using Curv, a new built-in soft-knee limiter that catches even the fastest transients, you can track hotter signals and smooth out inconsistent levels from incoming sources.
The connections you need now and later
HD I/O comes in three configurations, so you can choose the interface that best suits your connection needs. What's more, you can expand your analog or digital I/O by simply installing an HD I/O option card into any empty bay. HD I/O 16x16 Analog cannot be expanded, as all four bays are occupied.
