    AVID Eleven™ Rack is a revolutionary guitar recording and effects processing system designed to eliminate the challenges guitarists have faced in the studio and on stage. Say goodbye to the lacklustre guitar amp 'models' of yesteryear: Eleven Rack utilises a unique tone cloning design and one-of-a-kind, custom-designed True-Z input to re-create the experience of playing through a full guitar rig. By combining studio-standard Pro Tools® software with a DSP-accelerated high-resolution interface, Eleven Rack puts professional recording into the hands of every guitar player. Whether you're tracking in the studio or playing on stage, Eleven Rack delivers fresh, mind-blowing, hyper-realistic guitar amp and effects tones that will inspire your best performances.
    Eleven Rack in the Studio
    Eleven Rack combines studio-standard Pro Tools software with a high-resolution, dual DSP-powered audio interface so you'll never have to worry about latency when recording with its built-in amp/effects tones — nor will your computer have to carry the processing burden. Eleven Rack also takes re-amping to the next level by recording both dry and processed guitar signals simultaneously, allowing you to re-amplify later without patching a single cable. AVID even found a way to embed the Eleven Rack amp and effects settings into the audio tracks you record, enabling you to automatically recall those settings from your audio files on any Pro Tools system with Eleven Rack.
    Eleven Rack On Stage
    Eleven Rack also rocks onstage as a standalone amp tone and effects signal processor — they pulled out all the stops to make sure it sounds and feels just like playing through the real deal. They've also included a classic collection of effects, from must-have stompboxes to world-class rackmount studio processors. Eleven Rack has all the I/O flexibility you need to integrate it into your existing rig, and easily incorporate the tones you've recorded with into your live setup — closing the gap between studio and stage. Eleven Rack also offers incredibly powerful control options using affordable MIDI controllers and expression pedals, giving you full foot control over everything from vintage wah effects to tempo-driven delays and more.
    Introducing True-Z
    Among guitar tonehounds, it's a well-known fact that input impedance — the electronic resistance found in the input circuit of the amp or effect you're plugged in to — has a huge impact on your guitar tone. AVID realised that re-creating this electronic relationship was critical in nailing the sound and feel of their emulations. Others have tried to fake this with signal processing but they weren't satisfied with a one-size-fits-all-approach. Each guitar reacts uniquely with each amp or effect — so they came up with a true analogue solution that allows your guitar to interact realistically with the amp and effect recreations.
    That's why True-Z was developed — a unique analogue input circuit that replicates the input impedance of classic stompbox pedals and guitar amps, resulting in amazingly realistic sounds. It's almost as if the True-Z input on Eleven Rack morphs into the 1/4 inch input jack of whatever classic stompbox or amplifier you are using. When you plug into Eleven Rack, you get the same response — and same great tone — as when plugging in to a vintage stompbox or guitar amp. You can also manually control the impedance of the True-Z input and set it to a value that suits your playing best.
