Focusrite's Red 16Line is a 64 x 64 Pro Tools | HD and dual Thunderbolt 3 audio interface with high-performance digital conversion and ultra-low round-trip latency, a pair of pristine Red Evolution mic preamps, up to 121dB of dynamic range, and networked audio expansion over Dante. Because the Red 16Line supplies both DigiLink and Thunderbolt connections, it's quite easy to switch between Pro Tools | HD and another DAW, without having to reconfigure option cards in the interface — just change the host mode either in the remote control software or on the chassis front panel.

At last: new Mac Pro!

I hear you. I actually work both ways- I have MTRX/HDX plus a Focusrite Red 16 Line for native plus an Apollo X8 for more/other native. I do prefer HDX when tracking bands/ensembles though.
