NEW APOGEE X-HD OPTION CARD FIRMWARE

NEW APOGEE X-HD OPTION CARD FIRMWARE FEATURES
BETTER INTEGRATION WITH PRO TOOLS HD

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Santa Monica, CA, August 9th 2007 -Today, Apogee
Electronics Corporation released an update to
their X-HD option card to provide better
integration with Pro Tools HD.

The X-HD v.2 option allows for direct
connectivity between Pro Tools HD systems and
Apogee's AD-16X, DA-16X, and Rosetta 800 and 200
series converters, providing superior quality
conversion to Pro Tools HD users without the need
for an additional interface.

The X-HD v.2 release changes Apogee hardware
emulation in Pro Tools to better support I/O
setup and auto delay compensation without
compromising channel counts or converter
configurations.

X-HD firmware v.2.0 adds the following features:

• All Apogee interfaces are now detected as 192 Digital interfaces (as opposed to 192 interfaces), to ensure phase coherency across all outputs when Pro Tools Delay Compensation is enabled.

• When an AD16X and DA16X are set to Advanced Routing and connected to the same Digidesign PCI card, it’s now possible to configure Pro Tools I/O inserts with the AD/DA’s analog and digital I/O. This is made possible by changes within the X-HD card that route the AD’s analog inputs and the DA’s analog outputs to the first 16 Pro Tools channels (A1-16) and the DA’s digital inputs and AD’s digital outputs to Pro Tools channels 17-32 (B1-16).

• Latency correction values are now entered in the I/O Setup window, for simpler and more effective compatibility with Pro Tools Delay Compensation.

• The X-HD User’s Guide has been re-written to improved clarity and included new functionality
