Digidesign Technical White Papers

Pro Tools TDM Systems

Clocking, Jitter and the Digidesign 192 I/O Audio Interface
Have you ever wondered how Loop Sync works? Or what effect an external clock has on a Pro Tools system? Find this and more in the latest Digidesign Technical White Paper by Gannon Kashiwa. The paper first provides an overview of common clocking techniques and technologies used in current generation audio interfaces across the industry and then takes an in-depth look at the clocking schemes used in the 192 I/O specifically. Jitter measurements of the internal systems as well as several popular dedicated clocks help illustrate the effects of various clocking scenarios and help the user understand how their systems perform under different conditions. This highly informative paper will help those interested in getting the best result from their Pro Tools system.

The Pro Tools 48-Bit Mixer
This Digidesign Technical White Paper by Gannon Kashiwa provides detailed information about how the Pro Tools mixer operates. In so doing, we will demonstrate its summing characteristics and explain how a 48-bit "clean" mixer functions within the 24-bit TDM (Time Division Multiplexing) environment. By providing some "behind-the-scenes" information about mixing and summing in Pro Tools, we hope to shed light on a few myths about mixing "in the box" with Pro Tools, as well as provide you with a better understanding of the mechanics of summing signals.

DigiZine Tech Talk — Mixing in the Box
This Digidesign Technical White Paper by Stan Cotey provides a detailed look at some of the myths and legends surrounding the mix bus in Pro Tools.

PCIe vs PCI Power
This document explains the technical differences between the PCI Express (PCIe) and PCI versions of the Pro Tools|HD system, and why for most users they both provide very similar DSP power.

Pro Tools Host-Based Systems

Latency and Delay Compensation with Host-Based Pro Tools Systems
Version 2, December 8, 2006
This Digidesign Technical White Paper by Dusty DiMercurio provides information about compensating for plug-in latency with host-based Pro Tools systems (Pro Tools LE, Pro Tools M-Powered, and Pro Tools Academic). In cases where a plug-in has processing latency, there is a way to manually compensate for this with host-based Pro Tools systems using the DigiRack Time Adjuster plug-in, or by slightly moving or "nudging" tracks.
