Q to Apogee ROSETTA 800 users

Hello. Here is a question for those who use the Apogee ROSETTA 800.
Now, I have PTLE with 002R
I am planning to upgrade to HD system

I dont have a big budget. So I think i will go for the ROSETTA 800 HD Pack
http://www.apogeedigital.com/products/hdpack.php
However, I don't quite understand how it works

With the Apogee X-HD, do i also need to buy the HD core card?
and, do i also need some like 192 as well?

Can anyone explain me what the exactly hardware do i need in order to have a HD1 system with Apogee ROSETTA 800???

thank you!

I'm in your same situation (jumping from 002R to HD with a Rosetta 800-96)
You have to buy at least a HD core sys (ie HD1) and the X-HD card for the Rosetta.

Someone says that this sys is not very stable, someone says yes.
But I'm going for it and if I'll have problems I'll buy a 192 digital and connect it to the core sys then connect the Rosetta to the 192 via AES/EBU.

Hope this help

I have an HD1 card, a process card, the x-hd card and the Apogee 800 and everything works fine.

Hey Marlowe,
I've heard (or read) that this config causes problems in hi S/R.
Have you never tried to run at 96KHz with your sys?

No, I am always recording at 44.1. I will give it a try soon and report back but I've never heard of problems cropping up relating to sample rate settings.

So, if i buy the ROSETTA 800, do i still need to buy an interface like 192???
or ROSETTA 800 = 192?

Negative!

You don't need to record anything @ 192kHz, even 96kHz is hardly necessary (except to record acoustic instruments at some specific circumstances blah,blah...)
Quality of Rosetta's A/D & D/A is more than sufficient for anyone needs and I believe that you know that as soon as you decide to buy ROSETTA over Digidesign.
IMHO 192's A/D & D/A is weakest part of ProTools system!

Best regards, PERUZZA!!!

You buy the Apogee interface (Rosetta 800) and the card for it (goes in the rear slot of the Rosetta) that allows it to be connected to a Digi Core card directly. You don't need a Digi 192 or any other hardware interface, the Apogee will be doing that. The Rosetta will be connected directly to the Digi Core card. You will also need the cable that goes between the core card and the Apogee interface. Sorry I don't have all the part numbers for you. Consult a Digi dealer or you can look up the numbers on Sweetwaters web site.

If you build this system, you'll love the sound quality and results. Just be sure that you'll be happy with the Rosetta 800 instead of the Apogee 16X series :-)

All the best to you with your recording endeavors.

Peace

Just a suggestion.... Why not use the Rosetta with your 002R?
You will get near enough the same sound quality as you would using the rosetta with a HD core card, and you will save a fair deal in the process...especially if you have a collection of RTAS plugins which wont really benefit from the HD cards processing power.

To answer your initial question, the exact hardware you need is:
1 Rosetta 800
1 X-HD Option for the Rosetta
1 HD Core Card with PTHD7.x
1 Cable Run between X-HD and Core Card
