Avid HEAT
Add some HEAT to your mix. Get the warmth and sonic character of analog "in the box" with HEAT (Harmonically Enhanced Algorithm Technology), an easy-to-use Pro Tools|HD software add-on that gives you the euphonic characteristics of prized analog gear without the expense or added bulk. Whether you're mixing music or sound for picture, you'll get the unmistakable sonic characteristics of a vintage analog console or outboard gear to "gel" your mixes together - right in Pro Tools.

Developed in collaboration with renowned audio designer and Cranesong founder, Dave Hill, HEAT tightly integrates with your Pro Tools|HD system, enabling you to easily create rich-sounding mixes like never before - with unique warmth, punch, and clarity.

Old School Sound, Modern Technology
HEAT does more than just warm-up your sound - it actually fuses the color characteristics of vintage analog consoles, vacuum tube circuits, and analog tape into your mix using high-quality, sophisticated algorithms. In the analog world, euphonic characteristics are introduced across individual audio tracks when mixing on an analog console or tracking to analog tape. HEAT works similarly, processing all audio tracks individually. But it also gives you the power to tweak its Drive and Tone controls globally to get the sound you want, whether that means something richer, brighter, smoother, or livelier. You can also A/B individual tracks or the entire mix to compare your handiwork, choose a PRE or post insert state, or bypass HEAT altogether.

Set It and Forget It
HEAT uses the Pro Tools|HD TDM architecture to work its magic, but it's no plug-in, making it fast and easy to access and use. That's because HEAT appears right in the Pro Tools Mix window - no need to insert it on every individual track or select it from a menu. Use it on your entire mix, with global Drive and Tone control, for total effortlessness - just "set it and forget it!" - or bypass it on a track-by-track basis to only affect certain sounds.

The Magic of Outboard "In the Box"
Whether you're mixing music albums or music beds, you can finally step away from costly analog gear and get the sound you're after "in the box" with HEAT. Easily create great-sounding mixes that have the familiar sonic characteristics of being mixed through a vintage console or box - including the pleasant harmonic distortion that "glues" your mixes together - without having to endure the usual technical complexities - or expense.

Wake Up Your Post-Production Sound
If you're a sound designer or sound effects editor, adding a little HEAT to your tracks can make any sterile-sounding recording or canned effect sound punchier and livelier. Experiment and you can even change-up the character of audio assets into something better or more unique.
