Precision synchronizer and master clock for audio post production
Keep your Pro Tools system and connected devices in sync—no matter how complex your setup. Pro Tools | Sync X serves as the backbone of modern audio post production, providing reliable low-jitter clocking and near sample-accurate lock with frame edge alignment. It’s a critical component for dubbing, ADR, Foley, and other precision workflows and a must-have in every room of your facility that requires audio sync to picture.
The ultimate sync for post
Leveraging the patented DigiSerial Port technology connection to Pro Tools | HDX or HD Native, Sync X enables precise sync between audio sample position and video frame edge. In multi-operator mixing environments, where dialogue, music, and sound effects are handled by separate systems, that means all of your audio and video devices will sync and play at precisely the exact same spot you intended. Every time you press play or record.
Sync up all your devices
With support for all industry-standard clock sources (including Word Clock, Loop Sync, and AES3), positional reference formats (including LTC, Serial Timecode, and Bi-Phase/Tach), SD and HD reference formats, and pull-up/pull-down rates for film and video, Sync X is an easy fit into any studio environment. Plus, six Word Clock outputs make syncing to Pro Tools interfaces and devices easy.
Cut costs with the built-in video reference generator
No need to rely on video reference from an external device. Sync X provides an onboard video reference generator with four outputs to distribute signals to other peripherals, cutting complexity and costs. If you already have an external video reference generator, Sync X can receive video reference too, with automatic format detection.
Streamline dual operator workflows
Sync X enables each Satellite-linked Pro Tools system to sync in tandem to support multi-operator mixing environments, where dialogue, music, and sound effects are handled by separate systems. This eliminates any possible drift to maintain near sample-accurate lock to frame edge.
Control Sync X and other devices from Pro Tools
From configuring your audio clock and video reference sources, to selecting pull down rates and fine-tuning device speeds, all Sync X settings can be controlled directly in Pro Tools | Ultimate. It also offers a 9-pin connection, enabling you to control other devices from Pro Tools, like a video deck.
