AD-16X • DA-16X
16-Channel 24-bit/192kHz A/D and D/A Converters
Apogee’s latest and most
advanced conversion
systems, the AD-16X and
the DA-16X take the
legendary quality of Apogee a
huge step forward. Designed
to interface seamlessly with
the latest hard-disk recording
systems, the AD-16X and DA-16X offer 16 channels of Apogee quality and 24-bit/192kHz A/D and D/A conversion in a
compact, convenient 1RU high package. Features such as a redesigned power supply, the C777 clocking technology
found in Big Ben, and optional Pro Tools HD and Firewire expansion cards, make them the most powerful and flexible
conversion combination ever.
FEATURES
◆ With up to 192kHz standard sample rates,
the AD-16X and DA-16X combine Apogee’s
legendary conversion quality with the very
latest in high-definition digital to provide
unrivaled flexibility and quality.
◆

C777 Clocking used by Big Ben
SoftLimit: Maximize Levels, Minimize Overs
Apogee’s C777 clocking technology uses an all
digital process developed with the most
advanced Direct Digital Synthesis (DDS)
technology and DSP-based digital filtering.
With a stable, crystal-based digital PLL
handling the clocking, the AD-16X/ DA-16X can
intelligently manipulate incoming signals and
adapt to them accordingly. Results in the most
aggressive jitter reduction ever and an
astonishing and noticeable difference in sound
quality.
One of the greatest difficulties in digital
recording is getting an adequate level without
clipping and unwanted distortion. Soft Limit is
an analog peak limiter that enables the capture
of an additional 4-6 dB of level without going
into an ‘over’ condition. Can be applied to a
single channel or all channels. Short of
purchasing a very expensive stand-alone
compressor/limiter, there is currently no
product on the market that handles this
process better than SoftLimit.
◆ Balanced analog inputs and outputs are
organized into two groups of eight channels
on 25-pin D connectors.
◆ LEDs indicate signal status on each channel,
with the intensity modulated by the signal
level to give an “analog-like” display. On the
AD-16X a second LED per channel indicates
“overs”, which may be user-configured.
◆ They incorporate Apogee’s UV22HR—the
industry-standard word-length reduction
system. Reduces word length from the converter’s 24-bits to 16-bit for CD mastering,
web, etc, or 20-bit for DVD. High resolution
detail is retained without creating artifacts.
◆
Specially designed synchronous switching
power supply works in conjunction with
Apogee’s very stable low jitter clock and filtering technology to provide superior heat
and noise performance and an improved
transient response.
Connect Directly to Pro Tools HD
or FireWire Enabled Computer
The AD-16X and DA-16X offer an expansion
card slot that greatly increases connectivity.
Add an optional X-Series HD card and connect
them directly to your computer via your HD
Core Card. Using Logic, Nuendo or any of the
many native DAW’s? Add an X-Firewire card to
your X-Series hardware. With the optional
X-FireWire card installed, you'll be able to connect the AD-16X and DA-16X natively to any
Firewire input device, with low latency and
without the need for additional hardware.
High Performance Output (DA-16X Only)
The DA-16X uses Apogee’s electronically
balanced line drivers to simulate true
transformer behavior. The circuitry is an ultra
low output impedance, high current driver,
capable of running levels up to 26dBu to the
most complex or low impedance loads. Studios
utilizing vintage audio-equipment will find this
particularly valuable. Ultimately, the output
performance of the DA-16X achieves perfect
symmetry when used in balanced mode (even
with an unsymmetrical load) and no increased
distortion when used unbalanced.

003 Factory • 003 Rack
FireWire-based Pro Tools LE Audio/MIDI Workstations
The 003 Factory and 003 Rack let you attain the same high audio production quality as commercial facilities in your own
personal or project studio with truly professional results. With an extensive range of audio and MIDI I/O, high-definition
audio resolution, Pro Tools LE software, FireWire connectivity, and an unprecedented bundle of powerful software, they
provide everything you need to compose, perform, record, sequence, edit, mix, master, and promote your creations.
003 Factory
The 003 Factory is a complete and full-featured Digital Audio Workstation
comprising a control surface/mixer with analog, digital and MIDI
input and output, and Digidesign Pro Tools LE software.
Communicates with a computer via a single FireWire cable.
The control surface provides eight touch-sensitive faders, eight
assignable knobs, ten scribble strips, and a complete control
section, in addition to four microphone preamps with phantom power
and individual high-pass filters. Transport controls and the usual solo, mute,
and select/record arm switches are also included.
003 Rack
The 003 Rack is a complete and full-featured Digital
Audio Worksation offering all of the same inputs and
outputs as the 003 Factory in a streamlined 2U rackmountable chassis, providing a complete professional
studio in a space-saving package. Otherwise identical,
the 003 Rack Factory adds $3000 worth of professional-grade Digidesign and Bomb Factory plug-ins, plus Pro Tools
Ignition Pack 2 Pro.
003 Factory and 003 Rack Both Feature
003 Factory and 003 Rack offer an extensive array of analog and digital audio and MIDI I/O, making them the ideal hub of
any home or project studio, or a powerful complement to an existing setup. You can connect just about any instrument and
device found in your studio to 003 Factory or 003 Rack. Plug in your guitar for direct recording, connect line-level instruments
such as synths or samplers, or capture sound from any source though a connected microphone — their premium mic preamps deliver the utmost sound clarity. And with their studio-grade 24-bit/96 kHz audio resolution, you can expect stunning,
high-definition sound every time.
In addition, they provide the I/O you need to connect MIDI gear, optical devices (such as ADAT), and S/PDIF digital equipment,
and also feature BNC Word Clock I/O to sync to other external devices in your studio. They can also function in standalone
MIDI mode, allowing you to integrate it into your MIDI setup sans computer. Plus, FireWire connectivity ensures high-speed
data transfers between them and Windows- or Mac-based systems. 003 Factory and 003 Rack feature multiple options for
monitoring your sessions as well as other external devices. Dedicated stereo studio monitor outputs allow you to always have
reference monitors connected without sacrificing audio outputs, while a stereo pair of alternate control room outputs let you
hook up a second set of speakers to allow easy switching between two studio monitor sources. Two headphone outputs with
level control, enable you to run two discrete monitor headphone mixes separately from your main mix.

003 Factory (Only)
With its touch-sensitive, motorized faders and motion-sensitive encoders, knobs, and switches, 003 Factory gives you direct hands-on access to the
power of Pro Tools, enabling you to control multiple aspects of your mix with much more speed and accuracy than mixing with a mouse alone.
With 003 Factory you can easily control recording and playback, mute or solo tracks, grab control of track volumes, pan tracks, assign sends, insert
plug-ins and tweak parameters, assign and write mix automation, scrub video, and more right from the control surface. And since 003 allows you to
control your mix with your hands instead of relying on your computer screen, you can close your eyes and concentrate on using your most significant
mixing tool — your ears.
003 Factory also provides essential visual feedback through its LCD display and plethora of LED indicators on the control surface so you can see how
and what you’re affecting in your session. Keep an eye on your audio levels on the control surface instead of looking away at a screen as you adjust
volume or gain thanks to a bank of 5-segment LEDs that function as volume/gain meters. The same LEDs also double as automation status indicators,
letting you know — at a glance — which write mode is enabled on each track when you’re automating mixes.

sacrificing the power and flexibility
needed in today’s project and
commercial studio environments, the
2408MK3 has everything you need to turn
your computer into a powerful 24-bit/96kHz
digital audio workstation. The 2408MK3 provides 8
channels of pristine 96kHz analog recording and playback,
combined with 24 channels of ADAT and Tascam digital I/O —
the most ever offered in a single rack space audio interface. Connect up to
four interfaces to the PCI-424 card and you have a system capable of 96 simultaneous active input and output connections at 96kHz. The 2408MK3 is ideal for both
the computer-based studio with no mixing board and more elaborate studios built around a digital mixer of any size. For
the computer-based studio, the bundled PCI-424 card also features CueMix DSP, a flexible DSP-driven mixing and monitoring matrix that eliminates the need for an external mixer or patch-bay. Connect all your studio gear, including synths,
keyboards, and even effects processors. Then control it all from the desktop with no audible monitoring latency and no
processor drain on your computer.With 24 channels of digital I/O, the 2408 is ideal for connecting your computer to a
digital mixer. Both ADAT and TDIF digital connections are supported at up to 96kHz. And with built-in video and SMPTE
synch, you can slave your entire workstation directly to video or SMPTE time code with sub-frame accuracy—without a
dedicated synchronizer. The 2408mk3
is cross-platform compatibility with
Mac, Windows 98SE/Me/2K/XP and
most audio software and host-based
effects via WDM/ASIO/Sound Manager drivers. Or use the included AudioDesk workstation software for Mac, with 24-bit

variety of other devices. But the 2408MK3
takes S/PDIF one step further than other
systems by providing an extra S/PDIF stereo
output of the main mix. You can use this
extra stereo digital output for whatever you
want. For example, you can leave it
connected to a DAT machine so that at any
time you can record a stereo mix of the
project you are working on - without having
to swap cables with another S/PDIF device
that may be connected.
For the computer-based studio, the
PCI–424 card features CueMix DSP, a
flexible DSPdriven mixing and
monitoring matrix that provides the
same near-zero monitoring latency as
today’s latest digital mixers. CueMix DSP
allows you to connect keyboards, synth
modules, drum machines, and even
effects processors and then monitor
these live inputs with no audible delay and no processor drain on the host CPU.
The CueMix DSP engine resides on the PCI–424 card, so it works across all interfaces
connected to the card. The CueMix Console software provides an on-screen mixer that
gives users hands-on control of their monitor mix, regardless of what audio software
they prefer to use. Digital Performer users have the additional option of controlling
CueMix DSP directly within DP’s mixing environment.
SMPTE & Word Clock
◆ The 2408MK3 is the first audio interface to
provide on-board video and SMPTE time
code synchronization features. This allows
you to slave your 2408MK3 system to video,
SMPTE time code or both - without a
dedicated synchronizer. The PCI-424 card
provides a DSP-driven phase-lock engine
with sophisticated filtering that provides
fast lockup times and sub-frame accuracy.
◆ The PCI-424 is expandable to 96 active
inputs/outputs. It supports sample
rates up to 192kHz and provides DSPdriven monitor mixing across 96 inputs
@96kHz with zero host buffer latency.
◆ PCI-424 resolves directly to SMPTE time
◆ S/PDIF jacks (RCA) on the rear panel can be
switched via software to become a dedicated
SMPTE LTC timecode I/O. However, because
the 2408mk3’s sync features are driven by
the PCI–424’s DSP, any analog input can be
chosen for SMPTE input, and any active
channel, digital or analog, can be chosen as
a SMPTE time code output.
code via any available analog input
with sub-frame accuracy. No separate
SMPTE synchronizer required. Also
provides word clock and ADAT Sync to
achieve sample-accurate digital
transfers between digital recorders
and the computer.
◆ Cuemix DSP allows you to mix multiple
channels into multiple mix busses or
directly assigned outputs. Manage your
monitor mix with the Cuemix Console.
◆ Cuemix Console provides independent
level and pan controls for each input on
every mix. And with CuemixDSP you
aren’t limited to four stereo mixes. You
can configure a unique mix for every
physical stereo output you have
available. This means you can have up
to 48 separate stereo mixes on a 96
output system.
◆ Supplied software also provides a complete
set of tools to generate SMPTE for striping,
regenerating or slaving other devices to the
computer. Synchronization features are
cross-platform and compatible with all
audio sequencer software.
Additional Features
◆ Includes a setup wizard for both Mac and
PC based systems that will have you up and
running in minutes. The Setup wizard is an
interactive, stand-alone director movie that
helps you connect everything together. It
even configures the 2408MK3 driver for you
when you’re done!
Legacy I/O Support
◆ Users who already own a 2408MKII or other
PCI-based MOTU recording system can
connect their legacy MOTU hardware to
the PCI–424 card of a 2408MK3 system.

MOTU
24 I/O
PCI Audio Interface
The 24I/O is a single rack-space
96kHz audio interface for Macintosh
and Windows systems that fulfills the
promise of host-based hard disk recording: to
record, edit, mix process, and master multitrack
recording projects entirely inside your computer. It provides 24 balanced 1/4˝ (TRS) 96kHz analog inputs and outputs
in a single rack-space enclosure, allowing you to connect and record
from 24 simultaneous analog sources. Like the 2408MK3, a 24i/o core
system includes MOTU's next generation PCI-424 card, which provides
expansion up to 96 inputs/outputs, DSP–driven mixing and monitoring, legacy I/O
support, on-board SMPTE synchronization and Audiodesk workstation software for Macintosh.
The 24I/O rack interface which is also available separately as an expansion I/O for 24i/o or 2408mk3 systems provides
5-segment front-panel meters for every input and output and software-switchable (-10/+4) analog input levels.
Metering
◆ The 24I/O’s front panel is essentially a dedicated meter bridge for
your hard disk recording system. Audio activity for every input and
output is represented by its own five-segment LED bar graph.
Front Panel Power Switch
◆ Useful in the unlikely event you wish to turn off your 24I/O. An
interesting fact about MOTU Audio interfaces is that they are hot
swappable. This means you can power off, plug-in, add and remove
interfaces without turning your computer off or restarting. In fact, if
you already have a 2408MK3 or other PCI-424 system, adding a 24I/O
is as easy as plugging in an AudioWire cable.
24-bit analog TRS I/O
◆ The 24 analog inputs and outputs are professional-grade 1/4” TRS
(balanced/unbalanced) connectors operating at either -10dB or +4dB.
The input level can be switched via software in banks of eight inputs.
In addition, CumixDSP provides continuously variable input trim with
up to 12dB boost per channel.
Word Clock I/O
◆ The 24I/O audio interface provides industry standard word clock sync
on a single BNC connector that can be programmed for input or
output via software.When operating as a word clock input, the word
connector allows the 24I/O to synchronize smoothly with today’s
digital audio studio.When operating as a word clock output, the word
connector can be used as a master clock to drive other digital devices
in your studio, such as a digital mixer.
AudioWire
◆ Uses the second generation AudioWire introduced with the 2408MK3.
It is a high-bandwidth digital audio format capable of carrying up to
24 channels of 96 kHz digital audio in and out of the computer at the
same time. AudioWire can readily handle the 24 simultaneous inputs
and outputs of the 24I/O audio interface.
Power Supply
◆ Comes with an internal power supply and standard detachable IEC
power cable. No wall warts or line lumps.

◆ The most important link in the digital
recording chain is the A/D converter. It is
the critical component that converts your
analog input signal into digital information.
The higher the quality of the A/D converter,
the better your recordings will sound. The
192kHz converters in the HD192 are the
same ones used in more expensive HD
systems.With 120dB A-weighted dynamic
range and a THD+N of 0.0005%, the HD192
is simply the best sounding front end you
can buy for your digital audio workstation.

FireWire Technology
Fireface 400 uses RME's own FireWire techology, heavily optimized for audio. Minimum overhead,
special hardware adaptations, and a low-latency buffer concept allow a performance and compatibility considered impossible for FireWire audio until now. This includes changing latency in midoperation, latencies down to one ms, or an immediate reaction to changes of the sample rate.
Further optimizations and additional features can be added at any time by Flash Updates.

FIREFACE 800
66-Channel, 24-Bit/192kHz Bus-Powered FireWire Audio Interface
Fireface 800 is the most powerful FireWire audio interface ever. Up to 56 channels record/
playback, up to 192 kHz sample rate, and true FireWire 800 equal an unsurpassed high-end, high performance and high
speed audio interface. Redefining the benchmark for FireWire audio devices, it incorporates world renowned HDSP-technology to provide maximum audio quality and flexibility combined with extremely low latency. High-end A/D and D/A
converters with 24-bit and up to 192kHz sampling frequency on all inputs/outs result in pure and unequaled audio. All
major settings are controlled by the included TotalMix software and can be stored in presets. With the Fireface 800 and
TotalMix you gain full control of the audio
signal: simultaneous recording of 28 tracks to your computer, routing the signal to the backup media on two ADAT-Ports,
making an extra mix for the digital 2-track Master via SPDIF/AES and checking every signal or every combination of signals over the integrated headphone with several different submixes.
FEATURES
◆ Top range AD/DA converters with 24 bit and
up to 192 kHz sampling frequency on all
inputs and outputs
TCO (Time Code Option)
The little module provides the Fireface 800 with a Word
Clock input and offers a synchronization to LTC and video.
Thanks to SteadyClock, the TCO not only extracts absolute
positions from these signals, but also a very clean low-jitter word clock. Thus a sample accurate timecode synchronization to audio or video sources is assured.
