Both cards provide similar DSP power, but Pro Tools requires a “Core” card to be able to run. Valid card configurations must include a MIX Core or a d24 Core.When multiple DigiSerial Ports exist in a system, only the DigiSerial Port on the first card (lowest numbered slot) is active.

Pro Tools|24 provides digital recording,Pro Tools editing, and mixing with true 24-bit audio performance and up to 24 discrete tracks per audio card, plus 24 tracks of I/O capability with your Core System. Add powerful real-time DSP effects, advanced automation, integration with MIDI and digital video, plus support for a host of TDM and AudioSuite Plug-Ins and you've got the makings of a true, world class recording suite.

You begin with a "Core System" which includes a d24 audio card. This is a PCI-bus card which connects to your choice of Digidesign Audio Interfaces, either the 888|24 I/O ($3495 list) or 882 I/O ($995 list).

Pro Tools|24 MIX ships in two different configurations, Pro Tools|24 MIX ($7,995) and Pro Tools|24 MIXplus ($9,995). Both are built around the MIX Core PCI board, a card that can handle up to 64-voice simultaneous playback (with a maximum of 128 tracks) and 16 channels of I/O.
