Legendary Apogee Conversion in High-Definition
The most crucial process in the digital recording environment is high-quality analog to digital conversion and the most trusted and desirable converters are made by Apogee. With up to 192k standard sample rates, the ROSETTA 800 combines Apogee’s legendary conversion quality with flexibility that complements any digital audio workstation.
Connect Directly to Pro Tools HD and Mix systems with the X-HD and X-Digi-Mix expansion cards
Users of Pro Tools Mix can bring their system up to date by adding a ROSETTA 800 outfitted with an X-Digi-Mix card. The X-Digi-Mix card will connect directly to the Pro Tools Mix core card, no other hardware required, effectively extending the life of your Mix system and optimizing your recording chain with premium Apogee conversion. Pro Tools HD users can also enjoy the direct connectivity and superior Apogee sound when they add an X-HD card to their ROSETTA 800 with no other hardware required
Professional FireWire connectivity (X-FireWire card)
FireWire and digital audio are turning pro with Apogee's new X-FireWire card. With the optional FireWire card installed, you'll be able to connect the ROSETTA 800 natively to any FireWire input device, with low latency and without the need for additional hardware.
Intelliclock: Dual Stage Jitter Reduction
Another essential for outstanding digital recording is maintaining an ultra-low-jitter, clock signal. To accomplish this, ROSETTA 800 utilizes Apogee’s Intelliclock. Intelliclock is really two clocks in one. A fast-responding ´read´ clock, with a wide locking range, fills a dedicated FIFO buffer, while an ultra-low-jitter ´write´ clock writes the data out of the buffer, and is used to clock the converters.
SoftLimit: Maximize Levels, Minimize Overs
One of the greatest difficulties in digital recording is getting an adequate level without clipping and unwanted distortion. With Apogee’s SoftLimit, you can maximize digital output levels without overs.
