NAMM: Apogee Firmware Updates

Advanced Option Routing for AD -16X and DA -16X      22/01/05
Press Release from Apogee Apogee has announced that it will be offering a version 2 firmware update that features Advanced Option Routing for the AD-16X and the DA-16X with X-HD or X-FireWire option cards installed. With AD-16x in version 2 mode, the 16 analog inputs (up to 192K) go directly to the option card (and out to a computer via X-HD and X-FireWire card).The return signal from the option card will be routed to all other digital outputs (AES SW/DW and ADAT/SMUX). DA-16X in version 2 mode works similarly: all 16 digital inputs (AES SW/DW or ADAT/SMUX) are routed directly to the option card with the return signal then routed to all the analog outputs (up to 192k). Advanced Option Routing gives the user the ability to seamlessly integrate outboard digital processors as digital inserts in to the recording/mix chain. The Version 2.0 upgrade also provides more flexibility for users when choosing Apogee interfaces for equipping any size digital studio (for instance, a 16 X 2 solution with featuring an AD-16x and a Mini-DAC is now possible). All new AD & DA-16Xs will have version 2.0 firmware pre-installed. Users that want to upgrade their units may do so by downloading the version 2.0 firmware for the AD-16X and DA-16X from the Apogee web site at: http://www.apogeedigital.com/downloads
