Arrow APOGEE update for X-HD cards!



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

For more information, please see the Apogee website here:

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

I've done the upgrade and now my DA16X will not work in Advanced Mode

For details see my post 'Beware X-HD Upgrade'

From Apogee

We are looking into this issue, using a single unit in advance routing with the new firmware.
The only difference the new firmware has over the previous version is if you are using an AD and a DA-16X together and doing analog and/or digital inserts. Other then that it is the same. Since you are only using a single DA-16X it may be best to use the 1.72 firmware.

Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.
