Frequently Asked Questions

What are the shipping rates?

We offer free shipping on most items to metro areas in ACT, NSW, VIC, and QLD. If you are in a regional area we do offer great shipping rates, though it is often too expensive for us to offer free shipping. You can calculate shipping costs in the checkout and on item pages with your postcode.
Orders under $50 incur a minimum order fee to cover shipping.

Standard vs Express Shipping

Our shipping platform will automatically determine and display the Express or Standard shipping options that are available to you. If Express is not displaying, you're either located too far away from our store in Canberra, or the Standard shipping option will get it to you just as fast for the same price. Express shipping is 1-5 days, Standard 2-10 days depending on how far you are away from our store in Canberra.

What payment methods do you offer?

We offer secure checkout options like Visa, Mastercard, PayPal, Zip Pay and Bank Deposit.
American Express payments are also accepted, although most AmEx transactions will require manual authorization after payment (Someone from the team will contact you to confirm the transaction after checkout)

Elevate your sound with a powerful music production system that delivers the impeccable quality professionals seek, now in an expandable solution that enables you to easily add more I/O to your project studio as needed. With the 25 x 34 Pro Tools | Carbon interface, which features eight mic/line preamps and integrated latency-free monitoring, you can capture full 32-bit audio right at the converters, giving you maximum dynamic range. Powerful HDX DSP acceleration, deep Pro Tools integration, and the Hybrid Engine enable you to track through real-time plugins with speed and ease without latency.
 
And now with the new Pro Tools | Carbon Pre, you can expand your Pro Tools | Carbon system up to 24 channels of mic/line inputs and 24 channels of line outputs. Each Pro Tools | Carbon Pre delivers the same world-class audio performance as Carbon, providing eight premium mic/line preamps with variable input impedance for greater tonal flexibility, stacked ADCs for maximum dynamic range, and 32-bit conversion to capture every sonic detail. Plus, Ethernet connectivity enables you to remotely control all channels from Pro Tools and tap into the Hybrid Engine for low-latency processing.

  • Expand your Pro Tools | Carbon-based studio incrementally up to 24 mic/line inputs and 24 line outputs
  • Capture full 32-bit audio right at the converters, giving you maximum dynamic range throughout the system
  • With stacked ADCs at each input and industry-leading double-precision clocking, you can hear and feel every sonic nuance in your recordings
  • Optimize or color the tone of any mic or instrument input with Variable Z impedance switching
  • Remotely control, save, and recall preamp settings including phantom power, gain, and impedance switching directly in Pro Tools, speeding up your workflow
  • Tap into the Pro Tools Hybrid Engine for low-latency input processing when used with Pro Tools | Carbon
  • Use it as an 8-channel standalone mic pre with both ADAT and balanced line outputs

Expand your studio
Get all the inputs you need for large tracking sessions and multi-mic live recordings. Each Pro Tools | Carbon Pre provides eight mic/line preamps and eight line outputs, enabling you to expand your Pro Tools | Carbon-based studio up to 24 mic/line inputs and 24 line outputs total. Two Hi-Z instrument inputs, 8 x 8 line I/O, ADAT I/O, and Word Clock I/O provide even more connection versatility.
 
Sound exceptional
Get impeccable sound quality across your entire system, from capture to output. With superior audio conversion, stacked ADCs, double resolution clocking, and our most transparent preamp design ever the same preamps as in Pro Tools | Carbon you can capture every sonic nuance of a performance with the greatest depth, dimension, and clarity. Even optimize or color the tone of any mic or instrument input with Variable Z impedance switching.
 
Speed up your workflow
No need to access your interface to make changes. You can remotely control, save, and recall all of your preamp settings including phantom power, gain, and impedance switching directly in Pro Tools across all Pro Tools | Carbon-connected interfaces. And with instant session recall, courtesy of the virtual assistant, you can quickly switch between sessions without any manual setup and reconfiguration delay.
 
Extend your workflow capabilities
With up to 24 channels available in an expanded system, you can capture live performances easily in pristine sound quality, making it an ideal companion for your next gig. You can also use Pro Tools | Carbon Pre as a standalone preamp, enabling you to use it to expand other systems. And because it’s EUCON-enabled, it integrates with Avid control surfaces for seamless recording and mix control.
 
Expand an existing Pro Tools | HD system
Got an existing Pro Tools system that needs more mic pres? Use Pro Tools | Carbon Pre as an 8-channel preamp expansion unit to scale up your I/O, with the flexibility of remotely controlling and recalling all preamps right from Pro Tools. Or replace an aging Pro Tools | PRE and enjoy better performance and pristine sound quality. Integrate up to nine Carbon Pres in a Pro Tools | HD system through your interface’s ADAT inputs.
