 The MTRX 8 AES3 option card is a four stereo-in by four stereo-out, full-length PCIe I/O card, featuring automatic sample rate conversion, so that all signals entering and leaving the MTRX appear at the same time, regardless of sample rate—just as though you were working with analog. The MTRX 8 AES3 I/O card has a 25-pin D-Sub connector with Tascam pin-out, and also comes with a breakout cable to connect with equipment that has XLR AES/EBU ports. The Pro Tools | MTRX base unit lets you use all eight of its expansion ports for MTRX AES3 I/O option cards. AES3 is the professional means to send and return effects, bridge between digital consoles, power amps, Dante network, and other AES-equipped audio gear.
