Get preamps, I/O, and monitoring all in one interface for Pro Tools | HD family systems
HD OMNI is an all-in-one professional preamp, I/O, and monitoring interface for Pro Tools | HD family systems. Capture pristine, high-resolution audio through premium mic preamps, connect your gear to a wide array of analog and digital I/O, and monitor your sessions in up to 7.1 surround-with ultra-low latency-all in one compact, cost-effective interface.
Track, mix, and monitor in one
No need to route signals through multiple interfaces-with HD OMNI, you can do everything in one single-space rack, so you save money and space. As the hub of any music studio, you can use HD OMNI to record high-quality instrument and vocal performances, while providing dedicated cue mixes for artists, and monitor the performance through a discrete mix. For post production, not only do you have overdub and Foley recording capabilities at your disposal, you can use HD OMNI to monitor mixes with up to 7.1 channels-and fold down mixes from 7.1 to almost any channel configuration subset.
Hear what you've been missing
Raising the bar on audio performance, HD OMNI features premium A/D and D/A converters, so you can achieve higher audio fidelity, extensive dynamic range, super-low jitter. and the absolute lowest possible latency in your sessions. You also get built-in sample rate conversion and a soft clip feature for worry-free performance. And using Curv, a new built-in soft-knee limiter that catches even the fastest transients, you can track hotter signals and be assured that any unexpected peaks in your input won't put you in the red.
Full monitoring flexibility
Whether you want to listen in stereo or surround, monitor sound personally or set up a personal mix for someone else, or hear your work in headphones or on the big speakers, you can do it all with HD OMNI. Mix and monitor up to 7.1 surround (with fold down to stereo). Hear how your mix sounds on different speakers using the Main and ALT speaker selections. Set up an integrated cue mix for artists to monitor. Or isolate yourself with your own headphone mix. And if you don't feel like launching Pro Tools-or even turning on your computer-HD OMNI features a built-in, customizable, 14-input persistent monitor mixer, so you can continue to monitor external sources, such as keyboards, drum machines, and digital music players, independently from your recording setup.
Work with Pro Tools and more
HD OMNI and all other Pro Tools | HD Series interfaces completely integrate with Pro Tools | HD systems, so you get maximum performance, dependability, and control of your inputs, outputs, routing, and monitoring right from your Pro Tools | HD Software interface. You'll also get higher production quality and greater workflow flexibility than with previous Pro Tools interfaces. And if you want to use your interface and Pro Tools | HD hardware with other DAW software, you can do that too, as all Pro Tools | HD systems support Core Audio and ASIO drivers.

The converters are nice, but I think the sound is best at 48khz. The i/o compliment is enough for our small room and the way it integrates with my outboard gear is amazing. No more latency issues! Huge shout out to Mario, his advice and service eclipses all other stores. He knows his stuff!
