product manager Matt May. "It'll accept just about any type of audio gear you
throw at it - a couple of microphones, keyboards or other line-level devices,
S/PDIF digital source, turntable, MIDI, even Word Clock - and let you capture
all of it into a high-quality Pro Tools LE session that's compatible with
professional Pro Tools|HD systems."

capture high-resolution audio anywhere, be at a studio, at home or on location.
