Avid and Focusrite are in discussions on collaborations for interfaces with the results expected to be announced in the Spring
Posted on: Saturday 6th of February 2016
Avid and Focusrite have a history of collaboration – the original Focusrite-designed Mbox interface that brought Pro Tools software to the masses and Control|24 as Avid’s first mid-format console. Twenty-one years after that first collaboration, Avid and Focusrite are in discussions again the results of which will be announced this Spring.
‘We want to make the experience of using Focusrite hardware and Pro Tools software together the best possible experience for all our customers,’ said Dave Froker, CEO of Focusrite. ‘Avid recognises Focusrite as an ideal companion to Pro Tools and Focusrite recognise Pro Tools as the most mature professional recording platform for new Focusrite customers to adopt.’
‘Avid is committed to giving artists the tools they need to create the best-sounding audio possible,’ said Tim Carroll, VP of audio products, Avid. ‘Focusrite shares that passion and is a key strategic addition to the rapidly growing number of leading technology providers that are using the Avid Connectivity Toolkit and Avid certification programs to develop solutions with that goal in mind. Focusrite interfaces provide the ideal hardware solution for Pro Tools.’
