10-in/10-out Audio Interface with 8 XLR Mic Preamps
Looks great. Sounds even better.
You’ve never heard mic preamps
sound this good. Aardvark’s unique
Q10 brings a new approach to
computer recording. Its 8 studio
quality XLR mic preamps have an ultra quiet .002% THD+N so you can professionally
record an entire band direct to the computer without a mixer. Any of the 8 inputs can also
be used as high quality 1/4˝ line inputs and take advantage of Aardvark’s legendary sound quality and low-jitter performance.
The Q10 has tons of studio-friendly features like 41⁄4˝ analog effects inserts for easy integration with outboard processors,
phantom power, 2 EFR guitar Hi-Z inputs, front mounted headphone & line monitor out level controls, S/PDIF, MIDI, a
shielded PCI card and comes with a full version of Cakewalk’s Pro Audio 9.0 recording software.
The Q10 is compatible with almost all audio recording software, and is often used with Steinberg Cubase & Nuendo,
Cakewalk Sonar, Emagic Logic Audio Platinum, Syntrillium Cool Edit Pro 2000 and gets ultra low-latency performance
with software synths & samplers like Native Instruments, GigaStudio and Propellerheads Reason.
The Q10 embodies all of Aardvark’s great hardware technologies to bring to you one of the highest
quality systems available. It offers great mic preamps and converters, plus all the appropriate
I/O’s of an analog mixer. This means that with one unit, you can record direct to you computer
without having to go through a mixer, noisy mic preamps and all the extra noisy cables just to
record audio on your computer.
◆ 8 flexible and high quality inputs. The XLR
inputs go directly to the discrete mic preamp circuitry , the 1/4˝ inputs go directly
to the line level inputs.
◆ Software controllable analog input gain,
applied before the A/D converter, maximizes headroom and gives you clean gain
just like an analog mixer. There's even
Aardvark's proprietary EFR™ Hi-Z guitar
input circuitry to warm up any guitar you
connect directly into the Q10.
◆ Unlike other soundcards that use standard
“mic-pre-on-a-chip” solutions, which are
not discrete and can lack the clarity and
definition needed for professional use, the
Q10’s mic-pre’s are a hand crafted, discrete
transistor design that yield outstanding
noise specs and pristine sound quality.
◆ The mic preamps are shielded in the breakout box and combine with top of the line
converters to deliver professional audio
quality from your mics to your computer.
The true brilliance of the Q10 is the combination of great sounding but flexible hardware &
brilliant DSP-powered software. Discrete transistor mic preamps, 24-bit A/D-D/A, shielded
PCI card and Aardvark’s legendary digital clocking technology combine to deliver audio quality
that is second to none. The flexibility of the hardware completely replaces an outboard mixer,
so you can record directly to computer without sacrificing audio quality or studio functionality.
The software-based DSP Control Panel uses the powerful DSP processor on the PCI card, so
your computer keeps running lightning fast and in real-time. It’s laid out much like an analog
mixer, and leaves native power for you to run more plug-ins and other processing.
4 Inserts for Outboard Effects
The Q10 has four 1/4˝ TRS inserts that work
just like those of an analog mixer. They connect directly to outboard signal processing
gear so you can ‘insert’ the processed analog
signal between the mic preamps and the A/D
converter. This means you can integrate your
classic analog signal processing gear such as
EQs, compressors, and limiters with the Q10s
crystal clear mic preamps, when you record
direct to the computer.
2 EFR Hi-Z Guitar Inputs
The selectable front panel Hi-Z inputs (7+8)
feature EFR (Enhanced Frequency Response)
input circuitry specifically tailored for
recording electric and bass guitars with a
unique warmth and clarity. If you disliked
the sound of a cheap DI box, then you’ll love
the warm, rich sound the EFR provides.
Headphone & Monitor Output
There is a headphone output on the front
and stereo Monitor outputs on the back to
connect directly to your speakers. Both outputs have individual level controls to give you
mixer-like monitoring capability. Combine
that with the 20 channel real-time DSP
Mixer, and you have an incredibly flexible
and professional system.
Shielded PCI Card
You can run up to 4 Q10's in the same computer for a maximum of 32 analog inputs
and 8 channels of digital I/O. (In fact, all
Aardvark audio interfaces can be expanded
up to 4 units…mix and match!) Just connect
the word clock in & outs on the Q10's to
each of the devices and your running sample
accurate with an unprecedented 40 channels
of great sounding I/O. This is perfect for
portable rigs that need tons of I/O and great
sounding mic preamps.
Aardvark Low Jitter Clock
Output Routing (Patch Bay)
Dealing with the software routing of audio
interfaces can sometimes be a big hassle. So
Aardvark took a photo of the back panel, and
gave easy to use drop down menus to select
what you want routed. This includes analog
through to the outputs (Analog 1-8), any of
the playback tracks (Playback 1-10), generating a tone and using the stereo output of the
Control Panel's Monitor Bus (MONITOR).
Logo Brightness Control
One of the coolest features of the Q10 is that
the power LED's brightness, on the front in
the shape of the Aardvark logo, can be controlled from the DSP Control Panel to match
your studio's light level. Even the phantom
power button on the front activates both an
LED on the front of the unit and one in the
control panel.
The Q10 also sets itself
apart from other interfaces
by having a fully DSP
powered software control
panel. This control panel is
packed with user friendly
features, and is laid out just
like an analog mixer with
stereo monitor outputs.
The hardware & software
combination of the Q10
truly replaces every aspect
of traditional analog mixers,
except you get better sound and tons more flexibility with digital presets and routing.
Q10 Control Panel: — The brain of the Q10, the DSP powered Control Panel replaces an
external hardware mixer, while still providing the real-time mixing and easy monitoring
that you get with an analog mixer. And since it’s powered by the powerful DSP processor
on the PCI Card, mixing, monitoring and metering won’t slow down your computer.
Works in combination with the Q10 hardware to provide a total digital mixing solution
that includes flexible routing, zero-latency monitoring, snapshot preset recall, input level
trim, digital peak metering and is +4/-10 selectable.
The Control Panel can be seen as a 20 channel mixer with a 2 channel monitor output that
is routed to 1/4˝ stereo line outs on the back panel, and a 1/4˝ front panel headphone out.
Ten of the channels are from the physical 10 inputs of the box (8 analog and stereo digital),
and the other 10 channels are from the software. Any combination of previously recorded
audio tracks can be played back, mixed and monitored individually or in subgroups, while
simultaneously recording additional audio tracks. The control panel even comes in 4 cool
colors that you can change as often as you’d like. This lets you match it to your studio, or
make life easy on the eyes during an all night recording session.
3-Stage Input Gain: The input trim (found at the top of each mixer strip on the Control
Panel) provides up to 75dB gain on mic inputs. This gain is done in the analog stage (pre
A/D conversion), just like an analog mixer. In contrast, most other audio cards provide the
gain after the A/D, which dramatically increases the noise. The Q10 software avoids this by
sending commands to the analog circuitry in the breakout box to get the best sound possible. Actually has 3 separate gain stages; m2 (Mic 2), m1 (mic 1), and L (Line level), which
are each optimized for that particular gain range for the best possible sound.
ASIO Turbo Mode: Enhanced ASIO 2 driver provides some of the best latency performance
in the industry. Down to 4ms or less with some applications such as software synths and
VST instruments. Great for real-time performance.
ASIO Buffer Slider: Not only is the ASIO driver really efficient, but it has a unique 31-step
ASIO Buffer Slider which lets the user dial in the exact buffer size that is optimal for the
computer. No other card goes this far to get real-time performance.
Snapshot Preset Recall: Hitting the Presets button on the Control Panel activates the
Presets window, which let you save an unlimited number of screen shots to recall at any
time This is particularly useful when you need to change the patch bay settings or the
input levels for different studio sessions. It’s also nice to save different or special mixes so
you can get up and running in no time.

Every Aardvark computer audio card uses
clocking technology similar to the legendary
AardSync II master clock generator. The
AardSync II is the industry standard master
clock, used to sync Pro Tools, digital mixers,
A/D converters and other devices, improving
their sound via its low-jitter clock. This proprietary clocking technology gives our computer audio interfaces improved stereo imaging and better resolution on extended high
and low frequency audio tracks.

computer interfaces allows as much flexibility
and expansion as the Aardvark Direct Pro
The LX6 has four 1/4˝ line level inputs, while
the Direct Pro 24/96 has for combo inputs
that accept either XLR mic or 1/4˝ line level
inputs, or any combination of the two. This
gives you the ultimate in flexibility, allowing
you do all the work right in your computer.
4 Discrete Mic Preamps
Unlike other soundcards that use “mic-preon-a-chip”" solutions, which are not discrete
and can lack the clarity and definition needed for professional use, the mic preamps in
the 2496 are a hand crafted, discrete
transistor design that yields outstanding
noise specs and pristine sound quality. They
also have phantom power for condenser
microphones. The mic preamps are shielded
in the breakout box and combine with top of
the line converters to deliver professional
audio quality from the mic to your computer.
Control Panel
The Control Panel has complete mixing capabilities
and is very easy to use. It can be seen as a 10 channel
mixer with a 2 channel monitor output that can be
routed to any of the 6 line outputs or the headphone
output for monitoring. 6 of the channels are from the
physical 6 inputs of the box (4 analog and 2 digital),
the others are from the software. Any combination of
previously recorded audio tracks can be played back,
mixed and monitored individually or in subgroups,
while simultaneously recording additional audio tracks
from the LX6 or 2496. The panel comes in 4 colors, so
you can match it to your studio, or makes life easy on
the eyes during an all night recording session.
Built-in MIDI interface lets you integrate
MIDI instruments (synthesizers, drum
machines, etc) into your digital audio system.
The Direct Pro 24/96 breakout box features
both a MIDI In and MIDI Out jack so you

Compressor/Limiter, and Multi-band EQ let
you add effects to incoming audio “on-input”
while recording in real time with no-latency–
just where you need it most! Choose between
simply monitoring the effects while recording
“dry” to multitrack software, or you may record
DSP effects. You can also audition the effects
individually with the effects bypass feature.
The enhanced ASIO 2 driver provides some of
the best latency performance in the industry.
Down to 4ms or less with some applications
such as software synths and VST instruments.

Low-Jitter Master Clock for Digital Audio
The AardSync II is the master word clock sync
generator of choice for professional recording
studios throughout the world. Not only does it
provide a common word clock source for the
digital studio, but it has become legendary in
the industry for its sonic benefits. Innovative,
proprietary digital technology ensures exceptional
jitter reduction in the critically audible region. The
resulting pure and precise audio clock signal
enables today’s 24-bit A/D & D/A converters to
operate more efficiently, improving their accuracy
and resolution. The benefits of clocking to an
AardSync II are immediate and spectacular.
Back panel has 4 BNC outputs, 2 AES/EBU outputs and a video input BNC.
These outputs can be configured in several configurations via internal jumpers
All digital audio equipment needs some form
of master clock to derive its timing reference
or to operate at a desired sample rate.
Because only one clock source can be the
master clock at any given time, problems can
occur when multiple digital devices are
synced or “daisy-chained” together. These
problems usually manifest themselves in
audible “clicks and pops” and a general loss
in audio fidelity and stereo imaging.
As the sole master clock for the entire digital
studio, the AardSync II solves these issues. It
also gives the A/D and D/A converters a more
accurate timing reference, causing them to
operate more efficiently, which results in
improved sonic clarity and stereo imaging.
To sync to an AardSync II, each piece of digital equipment should be connected to the
card’s BNC Word Clock, SuperClock (256),
or AES/EBU outputs. For larger studios,
additional outputs to the AardSync II can be
provided by Aardvarks Word Clock or
AES/EBU distribution amps.
Low Jitter improves A/D D/A resolution!
Eliminates clicks and pops
Multiple Clock Outputs
AES/EBU sync, WC, 2X WC & Superclock
NTSC 4% & PAL .1% Sample Rates
Problem Free Synchronization
2x Word Clock for 96 kHz /88.2 kHz
What Does it Do
The AardSync II guarantees a sample-accurate sync lock between all digital audio gear in the studio,
and will lock to video black burst if necessary. This means the audio workstation and everything
connected to it will remain in perfect synchronization from beginning to end, recording to playback. The AardSync II can be set to generate 44.1, 48, 88.2 and 96kHz rates as well the standard
Pull-Ups and Pull-Downs to easily handle film and video transfers. Keeps perfect sync between
digital mixers, A/D/D/A converters, CD-Rs and DAWs. Compatible with digital audio gear from
Digidesign, Avid, Mackie, Sonic Solutions, Tascam, Yamaha, and more.
What is Word Clock?
Word clock is a square-wave signal that is transmitted via a 75 Ohm BNC connector. A square
wave alternates between high and low states, which makes it ideal as a timing reference. Because
many devices can use word clock signals as their master timing reference, it has become a
standard type of digital audio system clock.
Makes A/D Converters and Pro Tools Sound Better
When an A/D converter or Pro Tools 888/24 references the AardSync II’s ultra low-jitter clock, it
will sample the analog audio wave more accurately than when referencing to its own internal clock.
This improvement in accuracy of A/D conversion results in:
• Increased clarity and definition for all musical
instruments and voices.
• Bass frequencies become tighter, more
focused and easier to place in the mix
• High frequency instruments sparkle and
shimmer with clarity.
Optional Racks:
19˝ Mono Rack: The 2U Mono Rack is a 2 space, 19˝ rack plate/rack tray enclosure that gives your
Aardvark PC audio gear a truly professional look. The 2U Mono Rack is compatible with AardSync
II, , Sync DA, or Aard DDA flush in the center of the 2U rack.

The AardDDA is a 1x6 AES/EBU audio
distribution amp that helps you avoid impedance
mismatches, clock jitter & signal dropouts, and in
general will make your digital life worry free.
Combining the standard 1x6 AES/EBU I/O with
the optional S/PDIF adapters, you can configure the
input and the 6 outputs to perfectly match your setup.
For example: S/PDIF input, 4 AES/EBU & 2 S/PDIF outputs.
Or an AES/EBU input, 1 AES/EBU & 5 S/PDIF outputs.
AardDDA lets you easily interface any number of consumer
and professional pieces of equipment easily and efficiently. The AardDDA can also distribute AES/EBU or S/PDIF sync ensuring
worry-free digital audio and digital sync distribution. And since the AardDDA's transformer isolated outputs are also individually buffered you can not only distribute a clean digital audio signal to different devices, but over longer distances as well.

Word Clock Distribution
Because only one clock source can be the master clock at any given
time in the digital studio, problems can occur when multiple
digital devices are synced or “daisy-chained” together. The Sync
DA solves this by providing 6 additional Word Clock outputs from
a single clock source. It allows any digital device, such as the
AardSync II master clock or a digital mixer to be the master clock
in any given situation.
The Sync DA feeds Word Clock on 6 BNC outputs, allowing each
piece of connected digital equipment to receive a separate feed and
be in sync with the master clock device. Two of the outputs can be
configured to SuperClock 256, if the Sync DA is receiving an
AES/EBU input. The SyncDA is a great way to expand the AardSync II’s outputs, allowing larger digital audio studios to
take advantage of its superior clocking technology.

16-Channel 24-bit/96kHz A-D Converter
An affordable 16-channel 24-bit/96kHz A-D converter, the AD-16’s powerful multi-channel configuration makes it the ideal
front end for many digital audio workstations as well as for surround applications.
The system offers ADAT optical outputs and optional AES/EBU and TDIF, for compatibility with many digital audio systems, plus syncing to word clock or its own internal high stability clock. Apogee Word Clock output is also provided. Optical
outputs on the AD-16 support the Sonorus S/MUX specification for sample-splitting of high sample-rate audio data into
multiple ADAT-style optical interfaces. Additional light-pipe outputs are provided to deliver up to 96 kHz digital audio from
all 16 channels in this mode. An expansion port allows the addition of optional TDIF or AES/EBU daughter cards.
An elegant and effective user interface
characterizes the AD-16, including a power
switch, sample rate/sync selector, clear
“overs” button, and two buttons for Soft
Limit and UV22HR respectively. Designed
to closely match its companion, the DA-16
(16- channel D/A) in appearance.
Balanced analog inputs are organized into
two groups of eight channels on 25-pin D
LEDs indicate signal status on each channel, with the intensity modulated by the
signal level to give an “analog-like” display.
A second LED per channel indicates
“overs”, which may be user-configured. T
Apogee’s unique SoftLimit system maximizes digital output level without overs.
These features are easily activated with a
pair of buttons, and may be optionally
applied to channels 1–8, 9–16 or all.
Includes Apogee’s industry-standard wordlength reduction system, UV22HR. Reduce
word length from the converter’s 24-bits to
16-bit for CD mastering, Internet audio,
etc, or 20-bit for DVD. High resolution
detail is retained without creating artifacts.
Rear panel DIP switches select regular ADAT versus S/MUX mode, over settings, UV22HR
output resolution and infinite hold for the over indicators.
AD/DA-16 HD Pack—The Ultimate Pro Tools HD Upgrade
Put your money where your sound is… For a small percentage extra, you can audibly

“IntelliDAC” relates to the DA-16’s unique
“intelligent” two-stage re-clocking system.
Apogee excels at removing jitter from the
incoming clock signal, but for extremely
jittery input sources, even more control is
The DA-16 does this by using two clocks.
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. The advantage is that both incoming clock and data
are now de-jittered.
The system is also less sensitive to phase errors between synchronous digital sources. Errors up
to ±150° can be corrected, substantially reducing the chances of glitching, and enabling the
D/A converter to offer superior performance even with extremely unstable input signals.
A calibration mode is also included, allowing quick and easy adjustment of the reference level
for each channel.

Apogee’s first
96kHz system,
the PSX-100
offers many of
the features of
the Trak2 but
without mic preamps and strictly 2-channels. The PSX-100 is equipped with built-in ADAT, TDIF, S/PDIF coax and optical, plus multiple AES/EBU interfaces. It features Apogee's proprietary UV22HR word-length reduction system (which can be applied to either the A/D or the
D/A) and SoftLimit for maximum level without overs. An auxiliary output allows a full-resolution output to be derived
even when UV22 is in use on the main interfaces. The wide range of standard interfaces provided and the multiple AES I/O
ports allow use for signal distribution and format conversion as well as for A/D and D/A applications.
Three Operating Modes:
◆ The PSX-100 has separate A/D and D/A
sections which may be clocked separately
and configured to work together in different ways. The digital inputs and the A/D
output are fed into a routing section
which sends signals to the D/A and Aux
output or to the main digital outputs,
depending on which modes is selected.
—In Confidence Monitor mode the A/D and
D/A are independently clocked (and can
even run at different sample rates). The
output of the A/D is available at all the
digital outputs, and the D/A can receive its
signal from any of the available digital
inputs. The bargraph metering can be
switched between A/D and D/A. Two separate signal paths through the unit in this
mode, other modes utilize a single path.
—Digital Copy mode takes the selected digital input and provides it to all the PSX100's outputs, digital and analog. Both
clocks in this mode are synchronized to
the digital input. This mode is ideal for
format conversion as well as offering the
maximum D/A flexibility.
—In Analog Monitor mode, the A/D is fed to
all the system outputs and to the D/A. The
main clock is used as the reference (locked
to crystal or an external digital source),
while the auxiliary clock is slaved to it.

For years
have been
asking when
Apogee was
going to make
their legendary
clocking technology available as a stand-alone master clock. Introducing Big Ben, a radical new studio timepiece that will set
the pace for all master clocks to come.
C777 Clock
Technology up to 192kHz
Intelligent Clocking with
Adaptive Loop Filtering (ALF)
In digital audio, as in comedy, timing is everything. But if your audio path has got the jitters that’s no laughing matter! Enter Apogee’s
exclusive Adaptive Loop Filtering technology.
ALF maximizes Big Ben’s clocking ability with
an intelligent low pass filter. Because the C777
has made all incoming signals into data (1’s
and 0’s) Big Ben is able to dynamically compensate for excessive jitter and even improve
already acceptable clock signals to levels unattainable until now. No matter what your
input looks like, ALF can adapt and overcome
all obstacles to create a stable, reliable, low jitter clock source.
Not that you would dare expect it from a
master clock, Big Ben gives you realtime
format conversion between all digital formats. Use Big Ben’s intuitive digital display
to go from S/PDIF to AES/EBU, AES/EBU
to ADAT, ADAT to S/PDIF, etc.
◆ AES, S/PDIF, Optical
I/O - Word
Clock/Video In - 6 Word Clock Outs
Optional Firewire connection to facilitate
clocking and format conversion with other
Firewire devices
• 2 x AES/EBU on XLR 44.1-192kHz singlewide and 88.2 k–192k double-wide.
• S/PDIF optical on TOSLINK 44.1-48k
• S/PDIF coaxial on RCA 44.1-192k
• ADAT 44.1-48k
• ADAT/SMUX II for 88.2-96k
• ADAT/SMUX IV for 176.4-192k
• Word Clock BNC 44.1 –192k
• Video
• Firewire card option provides clocking and
format conversion functionality to Firewire
equipped devices.
What happens when Big Ben encounters the
ultimate disturbance in clocking, a dropped
signal? With “SureLock” Big Ben will
compensate by remaining locked on the last
relevant frequency sent by the delinquent
device. When the signal resumes, Big Ben will
gradually, and smoothly re-synchronize
without interruption.
• 2 x AES/EBU on XLR single or double wide
• S/PDIF coaxial 44.1-192k
• S/PDIF optical on TOS-LINK 44.1-48k
• 6 x BNC Word Clock 44.1-192k (of which 2
can output 256fs at low sample rates)
• Optional Firewire
Another feature to help you stop watching the
clock is Big Ben’s termination sensing ability.
Very often in an elaborate audio chain word
clock signals are improperly terminated. Big
Ben will chime in with a visual indication of
over or under termination on it’s digital
display for each word clock output, allowing
you to troubleshoot more quickly and get
back to business.
• Sample rates: 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96, 176, 192kHz
• Video: PAL/NTSC/60Hz
• “SuperClock” (256fs)
• Pull up/down 0.1% and 4% from any sample rate
• Three stage termination indicator (under,
correct, over) on each Word Clock output
• 4 digit numeric true sample rate indication

At the heart of any word clock regeneration is
a phase lock loop (PLL). Currently, and most
commonly in audio applications, the PLL is a
combination of analog and digital elements
without the ability to dynamically adapt to
the nature of the external clocks. That’s where
Apogee's C777 clock comes in. The C777 utilizes an entirely digital process, that Apogee
has developed using the most advanced
Direct Digital Synthesis (DDS) technology
available along with DSP based digital filtering. The result? The most aggressive jitter
reduction ever. With a stable, crystal based
digital PLL ticking away as it’s heart, Big Ben
is able to intelligently manipulate incoming
signals and adapt to them accordingly.

The Ultimate
Three-in-One Audio Tool
A true triple-threat, Event took a computer audio
recording interface filled with an extremely
versatile collection of analog and digital inputs
and outputs, a deeply programmable and
remarkably flexible software control surface and
a 24-bit/96kHz stand-alone digital mixer, and
built them all into one incredibly convenient,
compact, powerful package.
Analog Input/Output
Hardware Mixer
Transport Controls
When it comes to getting music into and out of
your computer, there’s no more flexible, powerful,
or versatile recording interface than the EZbus.
Dual low-noise 24-bit/96kHz mic preamps—
complete with +48V phantom power—provide a
super clean path for vocals, acoustic guitars, and
other miked signals. High impedance, high gain
instrument inputs (also 24-bit/96kHz) make
tracking superb sounding electric basses and
guitars an everyday affair. And Event’s unique
triple-summed 24-bit/96kHz line inputs can each
accept up to three independent signals, so it’s EZ
to plug in multiple synths, or a rack of outboard
effects—or both. You won’t find the EZbus
skimping on analog outputs either. Six, discrete,
balanced 24-bit/96kHz outputs plus a TRS stereo
headphone output (complete with its own
amplifier), make it a snap to interface with
your outboard gear, set up control room and cue
mixes, monitor a surround mix—or
accommodate just about any other audio
application you can imagine.
If you’re making music with computers, the
EZbus can make the process simpler and more
fun. Take mixing, for example. Without an
EZbus, you adjust each of your magnificently
crafted tracks one at a time with a mouse.
With an EZbus, you reach for an honest-togoodness hardware mixer, and move eight
faders at a time. (Now that’s mixing!)
The EZbus sports programmable transport
controls that let you easily start, stop, record,
rewind, and fast forward through your
projects. Use them to set multiple locate
points on the fly, then recall them at the push
of a button. Navigating through your projects
has never been this easy.
LCD Display
Virtually every parameter of a DAW, plug-in,
virtual instrument, or MIDI-capable device
can be controlled from the front panel. Use
the factory control surface profiles or create
and customize your own. With up to 32
control setups in on-board memory, the EZbus
immediately takes center stage as command
central of your studio or live performance rig.
Each of the EZbus Primary Audio Channels features three bands of super responsive, musical
EQ—high- and low- shelving plus a fully parametric mid band. You also get real-time dynamics
processing on every channel. Tame your vintage
gear with the Noise Gate. Or tap into the fully
programmable look-ahead Compressor and never
again worry about clipping that perfect vocal take.
Full Control
This custom display not only shows you all
the normal stuff—levels, mute and solo status,
and the like—but cool stuff, like the amount
of gain reduction your compressor settings
generate, and handy alert messages, such as
input overload and clock signal dropout
Power Routing
Event’s exclusive any-input-to-any-output audio routing matrix provides unmatched flexibility
for virtually any audio application. Tap into the signal at the input, pre- or post-trim control,
pre- or post-EQ and dynamics, pre- or post-fader—and route it to the destination of your
choice. Even route digital signals directly from input to output for bit-accurate digital copying.
Now add four Sends, each independently configurable pre- or post-fader, two mono Returns
and one stereo Return, and both Main and Alt Mix buses, and there's almost no end to your
routing options.
Easily generate independent control room, stage monitor, and front-of-house console mixes.
Create a multi-bus setup for recording—and monitor it with zero latency. Save your custom I/O
configurations for instant recall from the front panel, via footswitch, or using MIDI program
change commands. Up to 32 unique configurations can be on-board at any time, and you can
archive and organize thousands more using the included EZbus Mix Librarian software.
A single button-push is all it takes to
instantly transform the EZbus from an
Audio Recording Interface into a Control
Surface. Then operate your favorite MIDI
and audio software using the EZbus’s
hardware controls. Customize the controls
with your own command set, or use the
convenient factory profiles. Presets for
major software programs, including VST,
Nuendo, Cakewalk, Sonar, and many more
are included.

What could be easier than hot-plugging
the EZbus into your computer’s or laptop’s
USB port and getting your musical ideas
recorded fast? Connect to lightpipeequipped gear via the ADAT optical ports.
Interface with digital effects units, DAT
recorders, or any S/PDIF device via the
dual coaxial S/PDIF outputs and the coaxial and optical S/PDIF inputs. You can even
mix and match sample-rates via the coaxial
S/PDIF input, so that killer track you
recorded at 44.1kHz can easily be imported into your 48kHz session. And the low
jitter word clock output will keep all your
digital devices locked with
EZ8 24-bit/96kHz Optical
Audio Interface
Expand your EZbus into a full-blown multitrack recording system with the EZ8
Optical Audio Interface. This lowcost/high-performance PCI card provides
eight discrete channels of full-duplex 24bit/48kHz digital I/O via ADAT lightpipe.

24-bit Digital Audio/MIDI PCI Card
Representing a great value in integration and professional capabilities, LynxONE is
the perfect “front-end” for any studio quality audio or MIDI workstation.
LynxONE combines studio-quality 2-channel analog I/O (sampling rate up to
50kHz), bit-perfect AES/EBU or S/PDIF digital I/O supporting up to 96kHz,
and 32 channels of low latency MIDI to create a new standard in interface
hardware for audio and MIDI workstations. And LynxONE’s
compatibility with all popular Windows-based audio editing and MIDI
sequencing software allows users to choose their own working
environments. Applications include critical audio recording and editing,
CD mastering, restoration, audio for video, music composition, and MIDI sequencing.
Two-channel 24-bit A-D/D-A converters and a simple analog signal
chain ensure exceptional sound quality. (Software selectable +4dBu or
-10dBV levels).
If you are working in an all digital environment, the LynxONE delivers
bit-perfect digital audio at up to 96kHz, via an AES/EBU or S/PDIF
I/O (software-selectable in the LynxONE mixer application).
Low-jitter PPL sample clock allows the LynxONE to be used as a slave
or master timing source, enabling up to four cards to be linked together for multi-channel operation.
The flexible mixer application also provides keyboard and mouse control over the sample clock generator, monitor source, analog trim and
levels of all four channels, with peak level metering.
PCB layout and circuit design techniques reject computer related noises. Because of this, LynxONE offers 103dB of "real-world" dynamic
range when installed in a typical computer.
The ability to easily monitor the recording inputs is a must during
overdubbing sessions. LynxONE lets you select either the analog or
digital inputs as the monitor source. This signal can be mixed with
playback audio on either the analog or digital outputs or both simultaneously. This capability also allows "stand-alone" A/D or D/A conversion completely on board LynxONE. Because mixing is performed in
hardware, recording input-to-output delay is extremely low.
Two independent MIDI ports provide 32 channels of low-latency
MIDI I/O, with real-time transfer of Note On/Note Off and MTC
messages over the PCI bus for accurate timing and synchronization in
music composition and MIDI sequencing applications.
Compatible with Windows-based audio editing and MIDI sequencing
software, LynxONE delivers exceptionally high levels of performance
in critical audio recording and editing, CD mastering, broadcast, audio
restoration, audio for video and MIDI sequencing applications.
Comes complete with balanced analog, digital and MIDI/clock cables
for easy integration into your existing setup.
Complete software control of LynxONE’s features is
provided with the LynxONE Mixer. As shown to the
right, this application permits keyboard and mouse
click control of volume, sample clock generator, digital
I/O format, analog trim, and input monitoring. Peak
level meters are also provided.
Incorporating state-of-the-art converter technology, the LynxTWO is capable of
precision never before achieved in a PCI audio card. With performance that
exceeds stand-alone converters, LynxTWO sets new standards for signal purity,
versatile synchronization, powerful hardware mixing, and extensibility to
support a variety of multichannel formats including ADAT and TDIF.
The LynxTWO incorporates the latest generation 24-bit/192kHz converter
technology to create a PCI audio which rivals the performance of many
high-end studio converters. A choice of three multi-channel analog
configurations makes it ideal for DVD-authoring, multi-channel
recording, mastering, broadcasting, synchronization and video applications,
with non-audio digital I/O support provided for Dolby Digital.
The 32-channel mixer application also controls the card’s routing, monitoring and
sample clock settings.
Includes balanced audio and sync cable sets
Has one digital I/O supporting both
AES/EBU and S/PDIF formats at 16, 20 and
24-bit depths, and features a sample rate
converter for up to 3.1 rate conversion
from the digital input signals.
The internal port allows data routing and
synchronization between multiple
LynxTWO cards, while the external port
allows the connection of Lynx, ADAT, TDIF
and other multi-channel interfaces for great
system flexibility.
Two LStream expansion ports support
multi-channel interface modules, with each
port offering 8-input/output channels of
24-bit/96kHz operation.
Powerful synchronization and time code
facilities include an LTC reader/generator
which accommodates all standard frame
rates, and a low-jitter sample clock generator, which is capable of locking to NTSC or
PAL video signals, and to standard reference and word clock signals.
Lynx L22
192kHz PCI Digital Audio Interface
The Lynx L22 is a professional audio interface card designed for the most demanding
audio recording, post-production, broadcast, and measurement applications. Based on
LynxTWO technology, the L22 can capture or generate signals beyond the audio bandwidth
up to 100 kHz with extreme accuracy. Using proprietary circuit topologies and custom
components in the analog stages coupled with the latest converter technology, the L22
achieves a 117 dB dynamic range. Most importantly, advanced noise-rejection design techniques maintain this performance
in real world use from computer to computer.
Large on-board buffers and extremely efficient zero-wait state DMA
engine ensure glitch-free recording and playback. This provides tolerance to system latencies and significantly reduces load on the host CPU.
Extremely flexible onboard digital mixer allows the L22 to adapt to any
studio or workstation configuration.
Each of the mixer’s 16 outputs is capable of mixing signals from 16
physical inputs or 16 playback tracks with 32-bit precision.
A choice of dither algorithms is available on each input to mask
low-level artifacts while reducing word widths to 8, 16, or 20 bits.
The L22 provides I/O expansion via its two LStream ports.
Combined, these ports allow 16 channels of additional I/O from
external ADAT, AES/EBU, or TDIF devices. The ports can also be
used to route data and synchronize to other L22’s or LynxTWO’s
to create high channel-count systems.

24-bit analog inputs and outputs with three
options: 4-in/4-out (LynxTWO-A), 2-in/6out (LynxTWO-B) or 6-in/2-out
(LynxTWO-C), each with line levels of
either +4dBu or -10dBV, selectable in channel pairs through the mixer software.
192kHz Multichannel Audio Reference Interface
Multi-channel ADAT Expansion Card
The LS-ADAT is a full-function ADAT interface that provides two ADAT lightpipe
inputs and outputs and an ADAT sync input for the LynxTWO and Lynx L22 audio
cards. Operating at a sample rate of 48 kHz, the LS-ADAT I/O channel capacity is 16.
Higher sample rates are supported using S/MUX technology: 8 channels at 96 kHz and
4 channels at 192kHz.
The ADAT sync input provides two methods of
sample-accurate synchronization.
– In systems using ASIO compatible audio applications,
the LS-ADAT utilizes Steinberg's ASIO Positioning
Protocol for synchronization to ADAT time code.
Sample clock source can be derived from a word clock or composite video
received by the LynxTWO. In addition, either lightpipe input or the Sync In port
can also be selected as the clock source.
– Using the LS-ADAT’s cue point capability initiates
recording or playback with sample period resolution.
The LS-ADAT can also transmits time code via MTC for general compatibility
with many applications.
Installs in an empty bracket internally in your computer, no PCI slot required.
Now you can easily increase the I/O capacity of the
LynxTWO and L22 digital audio cards. The LS-AES and
LS-ADAT provide high-performance multi-channel
AES/EBU and ADAT connectivity for any Windows or
Macintosh based audio or video workstation at sample
rates up to 192kHz.
Using the LynxTWO/L22 Mixer application, “stand-alone” functions can be
configured that place no demand on the host computer. In a LynxTWO system
these functions include but are not limited to:
Channels from the expansion cards are connected
directly to the LynxTWO/L22 digital mixer. This allows
almost unlimited routing capabilities with expansion
card I/O’s, as well as the analog and digital I/O’s of the
host LynxTWO or L22.
• Eight-channel AES digital patch-bay
• Four-channel, 192 kHz analog-to-AES or analog-to-ADAT converter
• Four-channel, 192 kHz AES-to-analog or ADAT-to-analog converter

LS-AES LStream Expansion Card
The LS-AES is an 8-channel AES/EBU or S/PDIF LStream interface module
that is designed for use with the LynxTWO and Lynx L22. The LS-AES
provides four inputs and outputs that support professional AES/EBU and
consumer S/PDIF digital I/O formats. Connections are transformer coupled
with pro-quality sample rate conversion (SRC) available on all inputs. The
LS-AES is also compatible with Dolby Digital and DTS encoded formats.
Running at a sample rates up to 96 kHz, the
LS-AES provides eight I/O channels in single-wire mode and four channels in dualwire mode. At 192 kHz, four channels of
I/O are available in dual-wire mode and
two channels in quad-wire mode.
For additional channel capacity, two LSAES cards can be used simultaneously with
one LynxTWO or L22.
The LS-AES can handle both asynchronous
and synchronous studio configurations.
SRC can be enabled independently on each
digital input to accommodate asynchronous
signals from multiple digital devices
Alternatively, all inputs can be run synchronously and any input can be selected as the
system clock source. The card can also be
synchronized to a word clock or composite
video received by the host LynxTWO.
For S/PDIF coaxial connections, the
optional Lynx XLR to RCA S/PDIF adapters
required. The LS-AES installs in an empty
bracket internally in your computer, no PCI
slot required.

About USB and Firewire
Offering excellent plug-and-play mobility compared to PCI, the USB and Firewire protocols each have their own inherent bandwidth that
dictates how much audio it can transfer. Where PCI handles 132MB/sec., Firewire delivers 30MB/sec and USB 1.5MB/sec. Greater bandwidths
allow you to record more tracks simultaneously than do lower bandwidths. USB meets the the needs of the majority of users who tend to
record one or two tracks at a time. Supplied driver control panel allows you to manage bandwidth according to the needs of each project.

4-in/10-out Audio Card with Digital I/O
Recordings are often put together one track at a time (a guitar solo here, a vocal there)
as opposed to being all tracked simultaneously. So why pay for inputs you don’t need.

approach in mind. You get two analog and one stereo digital input to accommodate
keyboards, preamps, CD/MiniDisc players, DATs and other gear. Ten outputs place the
I/O emphasis where you need it—flexibility in connecting to a mixer and effects. This
configuration allows your computer-based recording system to behave more like a
traditional analog one recorder or sampler, where signals are bussed to and from a mixer in the analog domain.

Keyboard Controller
A new breed of controller designed to meet the needs of today’s
electronic musicians, Oxygen 8 puts you in control of any 8
MIDI-assignable parameters within your favorite software
programs. Oxygen 8 is also a USB MIDI interface that speaks
directly with your computer without any extra devices. You
don’t need a MIDI interface for this keyboard interface.
The software synth is here to stay, and along
with it comes dozens of parameters to be
tweaked. Oxygen 8 puts your hands on any 8
parameters of your choice in real time.
Oxygen 8 lets you get deeper into your software programs, to get more out of them, to
experiment and push them to their limits.
Gives you more freedom on the stage than
you’ve ever had before, dynamically
increasing the possibilities available to you.
What is a MIDI
Unlike traditional keyboards,
MIDI controllers have no sound
built into them. They are optimized to control other MIDI
sound sources such as synthesizers, samplers and today’s popular
software synths. For example,
here’s how you play sounds within a software program:
Because of M-Audio’s driver
technology, your computer will
recognize your Keystation as a
MIDI interface with which it can
communicate. By playing the
keyboard, you send MIDI information to your computer, which
triggers sounds in a software
program that are played via the
audio output to your computer's
sound card.You can also send
MIDI via the Keystation’s dedicated MIDI output port to external MIDI sound modules like
synths and samplers.
Instead of taking hours to program drums
with a mouse, use Oxygen 8 to play
grooves into your program in real time.
Use the 8 knobs to manipulate the dynamics,
feel, and FX.
Synthesists can use Oxygen 8 to gain access
to, and to automate parameters that exist
deep within their hardware, making it easier
to get more out of them without having to
navigate through dozens of menus.
8 MIDI assignable knobs, one assignable slider
◆ Inputs and outputs 16 channels of MIDI to

49- and 61-Key USB MIDI Controllers with Realtime Knobs
and Sliders
Automated Touch-Sensitive Control Surface
Mackie Control is a nine-fader (eight channels and master) MIDI
controller that provides in-depth mixing, editing, automation,
and navigational control for any supported digital audio
workstation. The Mackie Control adheres to a compact,
desktop-style design and offers a full range of
professional-grade features and controls.
Mackie Control has eight channel strips, each
of which includes a Penny and Giles 100mm
touch-sensitive motorized fader, mute, solo,
and record arming buttons, Signal LED, a
Channel Select button, and a V-Pot that can be used to control
panning, send levels, EQ, dynamics, and other DSP plug-in modules. The eight channels can be
bank-switched to control as many channels as the user-selected software supports. Various software parameters are displayed
on a back-lit LCD screen that provides channel metering and track naming in addition to DSP and dynamics parameters.
Mackie Control also supports a full automation assignment section, edit buttons, Undo, Redo, and Save buttons, and a Shift
Modifier that offers dual functionality for specific commands. Complete navigational control is provided in a tape-style
transport with Jog/Shuttle wheel, Loop In/Out points, and timeline quick jump buttons. All controls live within a small,
tabletop, analog-style control surface with a backlit LCD display that is comfortable and enjoyable to use.
Mission-specific software “hooks” (or specialized commands) have been written by MOTU, Steinberg, and Cakewalk to support the Mackie Control. DAW-specific Lexan overlays that fit right over the master section can be used to “personalize” the
Control for SONAR, Digital Performer, Nuendo or Cubase SX. Additional support and overlays will be available in the
future for applications like Syntrillium’s CoolEdit Pro.
What is a “Lexan Overlay”?
For those
who need more
than nine faders, the
Mackie Control Extender is
a channel extension add-on
option for the Mackie Control.
Slightly narrower than a full Mackie Control, the Mackie Control Extender has all the
channel strip features of the Mackie Control—only without the master section.
Multiple Extenders can be used with a single Mackie Control to emulate a large-scale
control surface with as many faders and pots as desired.
AT 349 W. 34th STREET (with purchase of $100 or more)
A Lexan overlay is a thin sheet of
polycarbonate that has DAW-specific
nomenclature on the front side and an
adhesive on the back. It is designed to be
placed over the master section of the
Mackie Control and associate the buttons
and controls with specific software
commands. Because the Mackie Control
is supported by a number of different
DAW applications, each DAW manufacturer has been given the opportunity to
design and implement their own overlay.
Using the overlay that corresponds with
your DAW software will give you a
personalized, mission-specific controller
with all the commands for your
particular platform at your fingertips
The Mackie Control C4 is a highly sophisticated plug-in and virtual instrument
controller that provides four banks of eight V-Pots each, and four full-size displays
for instant access to as many as 32 separate software parameters without the need
for scrolling or bank switching. The perfect tool for desktop music makers, the C4
lets you intuitively control multiple plug-ins and virtual instruments simultaneously
with shortcut buttons and four independent backlit LCD displays. Computer-based music-making
has never been this fast.
Eliminates the need to constantly “bank switch” a standard control
surface display in order to access parameter-rich software modules.
Has multiple displays and corresponding knobs for simultaneous
access of up to 32 parameters of a given software module.
Function buttons beneath the displays and knobs let you select the
arrangement of those parameters and how they show up on screen.
The C4 also acts as a “quick fix” tool for fader and pan settings across
32 channels, and can be used independently or with additional
Mackie Control and/or Mackie Control Extenders.
Compact Touch-Fader Master Controller
Baby HUI is the direct descendant of HUI (Human User Interface).
Originally released by Mackie in 1997, HUI quickly became one of
the audio industry’s first totally integrated control surfaces for digital
audio workstations. With a similar feature set of single-button
automation, editing, and navigational commands, complimented
with eight full-featured channel strips that feature a touch-sensitive
motorized fader, Baby HUI offers professional-grade features and
capabilities in a compact, affordable package.
Baby HUI is an eight-fader MIDI controller
that provides in-depth mixing, automation,
and navigational control for any digital
audio workstation that supports the HUI
MIDI mapping protocol.
Supports all the major features found on the
original HUI - only in a smaller footprint
and at a more affordable price point.
Perfect for DAW enthusiasts on a budget, or
space-conscious engineers who have a very
small area to use with a controller.
Eight channel strips that include a 60 mm
touch-sensitive motorized fader, mute
button, solo button, and a Signal LED.
Each channel strip also has a multi-functional rotary encoder that can be used for
pan or send level control, or can be pushed
in to provide Channel Select, Record
Arming, or Automation Arming functions.
One of the key features of Baby HUI is the
extensive software support that already
exists among the various DAW platforms today! Baby HUI will operate and interact
with any software that supports the HUI
MIDI Mapping protocol. This is a HUGE
advantage over generic MIDI controllers
that require you to map every single control
with every software parameter - a process
that can take hours away from being creative
and enjoying the product.
Software Window Open/Close Buttons
For any HUI-supported system, simply
plugging Baby HUI into your computer’s
MIDI interface, accesses the control surface
or console manager within the software, and
activates HUI as a controller. As long as the
MIDI connections and software interfacing
is correct, Baby HUI will “wake up” and
allow itself to be used.
In/out buttons for location point insertion
on the fly
Easy to use MIDI In/Out connections
◆ Supports
a full automation assignment section, display buttons, and Undo button and a
Shift Modifier to double up certain controls.
Basic navigational control can be achieved
via the tape-style transport and RTZ/END
buttons, and any channel can be accessed
with the Bank/Channel Select buttons.

Mackie Control C4—Dedicated Plug-In/Virtual
Instrument Controller
Large Touch-Fader Master
Controller for Digital
Audio Workstations
Designed for video, film, multimedia and recording
studio professionals, Mackie’s HUI (Human User
Interface) was the original hands-on control
surface for Pro Tools, Digital Performer, Cubase
and Nuendo digital audio workstations (DAWs).
HUI did for digital audio workstation users what the
mouse did for computer users: Familiar physical movement is instantly translated into precise creative control.
For example, HUI includes what appears to the user to
be familiar rotary knobs... but the DAW ‘sees’ a virtual interface that can be stored and recalled digitally.
This complete hardware workstation console has the user-friendly features and ergonomics that Mackie is renowned for…
including instantly touch-updatable 100mm motorized faders, transport controls, DAE plug-ins control, keyboard shortcuts,
window buttons - even built-in mic preamps! What used to take multiple mouse moves and clicks can now be done at the
push of a single button. Instead of individually adjusting “faders” on screen,users can now enjoy hands-on tracking and
mixing with touch-updatable motorized faders. With full automation control and recall capabilities, HUI is anything but a
conventional fader pack. For serious professionals who work day in and day out with Pro Tools, Digital Performer, Cubase
or Nuendo, HUI can significantly boost productivity through direct hands-on control.
Eight 100mm professional grade, touch
update, readily re-assignable, motor faders.
The quick reactive, conductive metalized
fader knobs respond immediately to touch
control without separate switch enabling
or disabling.
The motor fader design utilizes a high
resolution, tightly tuned servo amplifier to
reduce annoying fader chatter, and the
conductive plastic fader servo track greatly
extends fader lifetime.

Baby HUI
Dedicated Remote Control Surface
The Mixed Logic M24 provides familiar hands-on control for the
computer-based audio production environment. It offers a traditional
recording console style interface designed to integrate with your
favorite digital audio software and provide the best of the virtual and
physical worlds. The M24 will complement your existing recording
software, improve your efficiency and enhance the recording experience.
Works with Cakewalk Sonar, Digidesign Pro Tools LE,
TDM and HD, Steinberg Nuendo and Cubase,
MOTU Digital Performer, Emagic Logic
Audio, and C-Mexx C-Console for the
Yamaha DSP Factory. Many more
programs will currently work with the
M24 under generic support.
The M24 has generic modes in addition to the
dedicated host modes. One of the generic modes has
bi-directional control of over 1000 different MIDI controllers at
a time and keeps track of current values as you jump from channel to channel.
Channel Faders
Has 24 motorized 100mm touch-sensitive
Alps faders with 10-bit internal resolution
(1024 steps) and scalable MIDI resolution
depending on the host software requirements.
The faders are assigned in banks to control
the on-screen faders in the host software. If
you move a channel fader the corresponding
on-screen fader will follow the movement
and moving any on-screen fader in the current bank will move the corresponding M24
fader to match the corresponding position.
The M24’s 24 rotary controls are used for
panning and correspond to the on-screen
pan controls in the current selected bank.
The pan controls can also double for other
functions depending on the host software.
Aux Send Controls, Dynamics
The top row has 16 rotary controls and 16
switches and LEDs for auxiliary effect send
control and dynamics control.
The number of available auxiliary send
controls per channel depends on the current host software.
The M24 faders can also create or update
automation. The fader range is in steps as
fine as 0.1 DB.
The M24 faders can control audio track
faders, master faders, effect returns and aux
inputs, group and volume levels of midi
tracks in the normal mode. In flip mode or
by reassignment, faders can control just
about any other function.
◆ All
Moving any fader will cause the LCD display
to display the corresponding fader's channel
name and control name and fader value on
the top line of the LCD display and update
the corresponding channel scribble.
Equalizer Controls
Pan Controls
16 controls can also double for other
functions including plug-ins depending on
the host software.
Each channel in the current bank has a
select switch that is used to make the Aux
Sends, dynamics and EQ and plug in controls active for the selected channel.
The 16 switches in the top row are used for
Pre / Post select or dynamics functions and
double for Window select modes, Function
switch modes and Aux send mutes.
Imagine having one type of plug in EQ on
several channels and another type on
several channels and with the push of one
switch you could jump from channel to
channel and be able to instantly use the
same familiar controls to control similar
plug in functions.
The M24 is the first control surface to
feature a complete dedicated equalizer
section with 12 controls divided into 4
Controls are provided for Gain, Frequency
and Width on each band with a band
bypass and EQ type switch for each band.
soft control is provided for access to
additional bands assigned in pages
(software dependent) or for use as a
trim control.
Depending on the host software the EQ
section can be configured to control a
large number of software plug in effects
with the ability to use the same common
controls for similar functions in effects
from different manufacturers across all
Transport and Navigation
The M24 has traditional tape style transport controls with additional controls for
navigation, selection, editing, menu control
and parameter adjustment.
The M24 features a large jog, shuttle control that can be used for audio scrubbing,
shuttling and navigation. Audio Scrubbing
is similar to rocking the reels back and
forth on an analog tape recorder and is
used during editing to help locate precise
start or end points of a sound.
LCD Display and Scribble Strip
The M24 features a 40 character by 4-line LCD display. The top row of the LCD display
usually is used to display the most recent control and value including a long channel name,
long control name and continuously updated control value. The next three lines of the
display usually are used to display the abbreviated channel names for all 24 channels active
in the current bank and act as channel scribble strips. Line 2 is for faders 1- 8, line 3 is
9- 16 and line 4 is 17- 24. The LCD has many additional modes and menus depending on
the current host software. The P1 in the far right of the first row indicates the current page
of controls that are active. The M24 has the ability to reassign just about every control on
the unit instantly to other functions in several pages allowing the use of faders and other
controls for very extensive control of plug ins and controllable instruments (software
dependent) extending the total number of available controls.
Zoom, Grouping
and Mode Control
Select, Solos, Mutes and Soft Switches
Fader Flip Modes
SWAP switch below the Transport controls is used to swap the channel faders
function to control the Aux Buss effect
send levels for the currently selected send
or the pan values if in Pan Flip mode. In
send flip mode the pan controls can
become send pan controls and send mutes
are also available.
The M24 has dedicated
Channel Select, Solo, and
Mute switches, 24 each
that correspond to the
same on screen channel
functions in the host
software depending on
the current bank.
The 24 Solo and Mute
switches are always active,
and can be easily
reassigned to control
additional functions.
24 Soft switches are assignable to different functions, such as record enable, depending on the
host software. The Soft switches can also be assigned to automation arm, automation mode
and punch control depending on the current mode of automation and the host software.
The Channel Select switch is used to select the current active channel assigned to the remaining
controls for effect sends (aux buses), dynamics, EQ and plug in controls.
3 MIDI in and 3 MIDI out connectors
allow for multi program use or emulation
of three eight channel controllers.
Bank and Channel Swap
can swap the control assignments of
the faders, pan controls, solos, mutes and
soft controls in banks of 24 channels at a
time using the BANK SWAP left, right
arrow switches. If you are in the first bank
the M24 faders are assigned to tracks 1-24.
If you press the right BANK SWAP arrow
switch once, the M24 faders would be reassigned to represent channels 25-48 in a
song with over 24 tracks and the faders
would move to match the new bank's on
screen fader positions.
◆ You
Many of the supported software hosts can
also shift the 24 assigned channels up or
down one channel at a time. By pressing
the BUSS 8 / CHANNEL switch and light
the corresponding BUSS 8 / CHANNEL
led, you will change the function of the
BANK SWAP switches into channel shift
The M24 has 10 switches that are used for
mode select and include functions for
Zoom, Grouping, Markers, Plug In mode
select, Utility and Function modes and
LCD and pan modes depending on host
software. The M24 has input and output
assignment capabilities as well.

The M-1000 is a 1U rackmount mixer designed to mix
digital signals of varying sample rates. The M-1000 comes
with four stereo S/PDIF digital inputs and a stereo analog
input—all with 24-bit/96kHz
sound quality—making it perfect
for mixing electronic musical instruments and recording gear equipped with digital outputs. The M-1000 can even mix
audio from a PC via its USB port. Word Clock is also provided, and multiple units can be linked for greater mixing power.
Mix Multiple Digital Sources
10-Channel Digital Line Mixer
Flexible Sync Options and Expandable Design
Today’s synthesizers, sound modules and recording gear often feature
digital outputs, but musicians have never had a way to mix all these
sources at once. That's where the M-1000 comes in. This 1U rackmount
mixer can mix up to four stereo digital signals of varying sample rates—
along with a stereo analog input and digital audio from a PC—with
professional 24-bit/96kHz sound quality.
Take a look at the back panel, and you’ll find four S/PDIF digital inputs
and a stereo analog input with high-quality A/D converters. That’s a total
of 10 input channels that can be mixed—regardless of sample rate—
using the front-panel knobs. The result can be output via coaxial and
optical digital outputs or the M-1000’s analog Master and Monitor outputs.
With its Word Clock input and output, the M-1000 can be easily
integrated into professional studios. The clock source itself is
selectable among Internal, Word Clock, Digital In and USB* for
maximum flexibility. And with its pro-quality specs—including
pristine24-bit/96kHz AD/DA converters and 56-bit internal
processing—the M-1000 can be used in a range of applications from
home studio setups to world-class recording and editing suites. Best
of all, multiple M-1000s can be cascaded for situations when
additional inputs are required.
* At 96kHz, it is not possible to send audio in and out simultaneously
via USB.
USB Port for PC-Based Recording
The M-1000 even lets you integrate your USB-equipped PC into the mix.
Using a USB cable, you can route digital signals from a computer into the
M-1000, where they can be mixed with other input channels. The results
can then be sent back out to the computer for recording. The M-1000
supports sample rates up to 96kHz—even via USB*—so there’s never
been a better or easier solution for computer-based recording.

Studio Package Pro
The Studio Package Pro is a complete hardware and software
bundle that gives musicians everything they need to professionally record music on a computer. The Studio Package Pro
consists of three elements:
The SI-24 Studio Interface, RPC-1 PCI Interface Card, and
Emagic’s Logic RPC Pro software for Mac or PC. This affordable combination provides 24-bit/96kHz recording and professional MIDI sequencing with a motorized control surface—a
powerful combination at an incredible value.
The SI-24 Studio Interface is a mixing surface equipped with
eight XLR/TRS inputs, a Guitar Hi-Z input, plus digital I/O
in S/PDIF and R-BUS formats—all with 24-bit/96kHz sound
quality. The SI-24’s 13 motorized faders, 12 rotary knobs and
5.1 surround joystick can all be used to control Logic’s mixing
functions and plug-ins. There’s even a Screen Set function for
changing Logic’s screen sets remotely.
Audio is passed from the SI-24 to and from the computer via the included RPC-1 R-BUS Interface Card, a PCI audio card
with drivers for Windows, Macintosh and ASIO 2. The SI-24 connects to the RPC-1 via a single R-BUS cable, which can
handle eight channels of bi-directional 24-bit/96kHz digital audio, along with MIDI information received from the SI-24’s
MIDI In and Out ports—making the SI-24 a useful MIDI interface as well.
All recording is handled in the computer via the bundled Logic RPC Pro software. This special version of Emagic’s awardwinning music production software for Mac or PC provides eight channels of simultaneous 24-bit/96kHz recording, 24
tracks of playback, 5.1 surround mixing, level and pan automation, a host of killer plug-ins and more. And since the SI-24 is
designed to control many of Logic’s mixing functions—including track level and panning, EQ, plug-in parameters and soft
synths—users gain hands-on control of their software for an unbeatable combination. The SI-24 also includes controller
templates for popular software such as Pro Tools and Cubase, plus a “Learn” mode for setting up user presets more easily.
Professional Sound Quality
Fully Automated Mixing
Transport/Function Buttons
As with any digital recording system, sound
quality is a primary concern. That’s why
Roland gave the SI-24 Studio Interface the
best 24-bit/96kHz converters. You can use up
to eight analog inputs simultaneously, choosing from either 1/4˝ phone jacks or XLR connectors. Six analog outputs are also provided,
plus S/PDIF digital I/O. Once audio is routed
into the SI-24, it is transferred digitally in and
out of the computer via R-BUS. And since
Logic supports 24-bit/96kHz recording, the
sound quality is never compromised. You can
even dither back down to 16-bits when you’re
ready to burn a CD.
With 13 motorized faders, mixing on the SI24 couldn’t be easier. Simply switch fader
banks to access more channels and watch as
the faders instantly snap to the proper positions! Naturally, the SI-24’s faders can also be
used to control Logic’s “virtual”faders for
more natural mixing. And when you really
want to create complex mixes, tap into Logic’s
wealth of automation functions. Tools like
HyperDraw let you draw in fader moves and
panning, while the new track-based automation makes it even easier to automate any
mixing or plug-in parameter without leaving
the Arrange window.
Besides functioning as a mixer, the SI-24
works as a remote control for Logic.
Dedicated transport buttons and a large Jog
wheel make moving around your song easy,
while ten numeric keys perform multiple
functions: Push the Screen Set button and
they automatically select Logic’s screen sets,
making it easy to switch between the Arrange
window, Mixer window or other screens.
Press the Short Cut button and the numeric
keys automatically perform functions like
Save, Undo, Copy, Paste and Cycle. They can
even call up automation views for volume and

R-BUS Interface Card
Logic’s mixer makes it easy to see levels, panning
and effects—but who wants to mix with a mouse?
Instead, try using the SI-24’s faders, buttons and
knobs for a more “hands on” approach. To adjust
a track’s level, for example, just grab one of the
motorized faders and watch it change onscreen.
And when you want to pan a track, simply select
the desired channel and twist one of the Pan
knobs. Similarly, you can use the SI-24’s
multi-function buttons and knobs to set EQ and
send levels. There’s even a dedicated Surround
joystick so you can maximize the 5.1 surround
capabilities of Logic RPC Pro.
The RPC-1 is a cross-platform PCI
audio card that serves as the gateway
to your computer. Since all the A-D
conversion is handled by the SI-24,
the RPC-1 busses audio in and out
of the computer using the R-BUS
port. R-BUS is a multi-channel
audio format that permits the simultaneous exchange of eight channels
of 24-bit/96kHz digital audio, along
with MIDI control information. The
supplied R-BUS cable is all it takes to
use the SI-24 with Logic RPC Pro.
Logic RPC Pro
Intuitive Recording and Editing
Logic RPC Pro is a
powerful sequencing and
audio program based on
Logic 5 technology—
praised by professional
musicians and producers
the world over. You get
high-resolution MIDI
sequencing and 24 tracks
of up to 24-bit/96kHz
recording. Editing is
ultra-intuitive using Logic’s graphic editors and specialized
tools. You also get access to award-winning Emagic plug-ins
including effects and soft synths. This is serious software for
serious producers.
Whether recording MIDI or
audio, Logic RPC Pro makes it
easy. The Arrange window is
where all the action is,
allowing you to build complex
arrangements with simple and
powerful tools. Detailed MIDI
editing can be done in the
Matrix (piano roll), List, and
Score Editors, while audio can
be non-destructively edited in
the Sample Editor. In addition to all the standard audio editing functions,
Logic RPC Pro also makes pitch and tempo editing available.
Professional MIDI Scoring
Using Logic’s Score Editor,
you can create professional
score printouts quickly and
easily. Simply record a
MIDI performance and
Logic RPC Pro will convert
the data into clear and
legible sheet music.
Notation can then be
edited onscreen with or
without changing the original MIDI data. Logic also provides helpful tools to make
your notation clearer, such as selectable note colors and
instrument sets for separating individual parts from a score.
A World of Emagic and VST Plug-Ins
Logic RPC Pro comes with over 20 highquality Emagic plug-ins.
These include insert
effects like dynamics
and EQ, plus studio
essentials including
reverb, chorus and tape
delay. Logic RPC Pro
even comes with three
Emagic soft synths: the ES M for
monophonic synth sounds, the ES
P for polyphonic sounds, and the
ES E for ensemble sounds. Additional instruments like the EXS24
Sampler and EVP88 Piano can be purchased separately. And since Logic is
VST-compatible, you can add optional VST plug-ins at any time for even
more mixing power.

The Yamaha 01X delivers power and flexibility never
before offered in any computer audio product and
represents a dramatic breakthrough in total
integration and flexibility. No more expensive
interfaces and control surfaces, the 01X combines
both functions in one single unit with mLAN
compatibility delivering all MIDI and audio
data via a single cable. Featuring Yamaha’s
next-generation mLAN technology, the
01X guarantees high-speed audio and MIDI
networking between computers, synthesizers and other
mLAN compatible devices. Connecting the 01X is simplicity itself thanks to the
FireWire (IEEE1394) interface. Featuring low latency audio interfacing over mLAN for both Windows and Mac-based
computers the 01X delivers remote control power never before offered in a multi-function device.
Total Control
The 01X offers remote control power never
before seen in a multi-function product of
this type. With a level of integrated DAW
support normally found only in dedicated
remote controls costing as much as 01X
itself, the 01X can also be the ultimate
human user interface between you and
your software.
Functions which can be controlled directly
from the 01X include track arming,
transport control, plug in editing, mixing,
window selection and many more using
existing and popular control protocols. This
means you have support straight out of the
box for Cubase SX, Nuendo, Sonar, Logic,
Digital Performer and many more software
products besides.
As well as being the perfect remote control
partner for your sequencer or digital audio
workstation software, 01X will also control
a wide range of parameters with many of
your software synthesizers and as the 01X
also works as a multi-port MIDI interface,
your existing hardware MIDI devices can
be connected directly to the 01X, making
it truly the heart of your working

digital mixing interface for your computer
but also as a total recall, stand-alone digital
mixer, ideally suited for live performances.
High quality mic pre-amps, 48V phantom
power on balanced XLR and TRS, line
inputs let you plug in guitars, microphones
or indeed any musical instrument and
know that the quality of your signal is
maintained throughout.
Full dynamics processing, including compressors, gates and limiters as well as 4
band parametric equalization on every one
of the 28 digital mixing channels, and two
world-class 32-bit effects processors means
that the 01X puts no strain on your host
computer for mixing or audio processing.
Fully motorized faders mean that your mix
is recalled at the touch of a button, and is
accurately tracked during the course of
your song.
Total Network
Yamaha’s 01X is the first product to feature
Yamaha’s next generation mLAN
technology. Offering high speed audio and
MIDI networking between computers,
synthesizers and other mLAN compatible
products, the 01X offers more than any
previous computer music product has
ever delivered.
As Yamaha’s mLAN technology is based
on the industry standard IEEE1394
(FireWire) buss, connecting up your 01X
is as simple as plugging in a single cable.
Perfect for any environment, the 01X is
as happy connected to a laptop as to a
desktop computer.
mLAN being a true network, and not just a
point to point connection system, allows
for up to 63 mLAN compatible devices to
be linked together.
And with mLAN using a single cable to
send multichannel audio and MIDI, you
need never have to worry about opening
up your computer, fiddling with messy
IRQ’s or wrestling with awkward set-up
configurations. 01X means you just plug
in and play.
Total Expansion
Based on mLAN, the 01X can be expanded
to add more channels with optional mLAN
channel expansion units, meaning that the
system can grow with your needs.
Unlike other solutions on the market, there is no need to switch to one specific
application just to get the full benefit of 01X. With low latency 24-bit/96kHz audio
driver support for Windows XP and Macintosh (OS9/OSX) computers as well as
full MIDI capability, the 01X slip’s into your existing working environment with
absolute ease.
Up to 16 extra analog inputs can be added to
over mLAN with the 01X internal digital
processors and mixing channels handling
the routing/effects/EQ and dynamics.
Bundled with the 01X is a professional suite of user interface control software and
commercially available VST effects plug-ins to enhance even further your experience
of working with the most powerful computer audio product ever conceived. While
01X itself has one of the most intuitive user interfaces yet designed, using 01X in
conjunction with Yamaha’s acclaimed Studio Manager, you can also instantly see
and control every parameter directly from a computer screen. On top of this 01X
comes with a VST compatible 01X channel module which mimics the hardware
DSP and functions of the console, and lets you copy parameters from Studio
Manager directly into your VST hosting application, offering a level of integration
never before thought possible.
Inputs and Outputs
Eight analog inputs including: two balanced
XLR mic pres with switchable phantom
power; and six 1/4˝ TRS balanced line
inputs. Input eight also features a dedicated
Hi-Z 1/4˝ instrument input.
Also with 01X are three world-class VST plug-ins offering enhanced vocal
processing, final mastering and studio quality, formant-accurate pitch correction.
PCI XG/Hard Disk Recording/Effects Processing Card
The SW1000XG is an audio production card with over 1,200 instruments including an
incredible 46 drum kits. It features 12 mono (or six stereo) playback channels and
multiple effects buses. And it can be set up so that its effects are available to both audio
and MIDI tracks within your sequencing software. Additionally, effects can be applied
to the output of a software synth package, or to a device that's connected to the card’s
line input. Any combination of these set-ups is also possible.
There are over 70 fully-programmable effects, which are configured as a mixed bag of
insert and auxiliary processors. Up to six of them can be used in parallel (these include
a reverb, chorus, variation, two inserts and a master parametric EQ) and effect types
can be switched on-the-fly over MIDI—and all this without touching one drop of your
computer’s main CPU, leaving it free to handle even more audio tracks or additional
software-based effects.

The 17˝ iMac dazzles with its brilliant 17˝ widescreen flat-panel display that glides
through the air, allowing you to adjust its height, depth or angle with just a touch of your
finger. But what’s more amazing is its compact base which packs a powerful 1GHz
PowerPC G4 processor with Velocity Engine, 256MB of PC2100 (266MHz) Double
Data Rate (DDR) main memory (expandable to 1GB), GeForce4 MX graphics with
64MB of DDR graphics memory and an Ultra-ATA/100 80GB hard disk spinning
at 7200 rpm. You also get AirPort Extreme and Bluetooth wireless capability, and
the best-of-breed digital lifestyle applications that have convinced so many PC
users to switch to the Mac platform.
Extreme Graphics
The 17˝ iMac has an NVIDIA GeForce4 MX
graphics processor with 64MB of DDR RAM.
The NVIDIA GeForce4 MX delivers 1.1
billion textured pixels per second. And since
the graphics processors feature dedicated
RAM — unlike some PC graphics cards that
share main memory — they take over the
transform and lighting calculation functions
from the iMac’s central processing unit
(CPU), freeing the PowerPC G4 to perform
essential system tasks faster than ever before.
The 17˝ iMac is equipped with the
SuperDrive (DVD-R/CD-RW) allowing you
to burn audio and video on a DVD disc that
plays in almost any standard DVD player.
Even better, the SuperDrive burns DVDs at
4x speed, twice as fast as before.
Space-Saving Design
When developing the iMac, Apple used a
rigorous design approach that optimized
every available bit of space—and no wasted
corners. Starting with a custom-designed
circular logic board that fills the entire
diameter of the base, Apple engineered
enough space to fit in the full-height
SuperDrive. On top of the optical drive are a
high-capacity 3.5˝ hard disk drive and even
the power supply — a split design that tucks
neatly into the top of the base.
Speakers and Audio
Includes Apple Pro Speakers that handle 18 watts of undistorted digital sound. And since the
iMac also provides power to the speakers, you don’t need an additional power brick. The result?
Reduced cable clutter. Features an internal speaker, internal tripath digital amplifier, Apple Pro
Speaker jack, headphone jack, and an audio line-in jack that lets you use it as a sound editing studio.
54 Mbps AirPort Extreme
Say goodbye to having to set up your computer near a phone. Pop the AirPort Extreme
Card into the 17-inch iMac, and you’re ready
for wireless networking from anywhere in
your home or dorm — up to 150-feet from
an AirPort Extreme Base Station.
Sync with Bluetooth
The 17-inch iMac can be custom-configured
with an internal Bluetooth module to
connect your digital devices wirelessly.
Operating within a 30-foot radius, it enables
wireless data transfers between a rapidly
growing list of Bluetooth-enabled products.
Using iSync, for instance, you can use
Bluetooth to synchronize your personal
information between your iMac, your mobile
phone and your Palm OS-based handheld.
The Most Affordable Mac Notebook Ever
Perfect for everything from homework to playing
games, and from watching DVD movies to
burning your own music CDs. With its extra long
battery life, compact size and ultralight weight,
the 4.9-pound iBook can accompany you
everywhere. And with a choice of 12.1˝ or 14.1˝
displays, 800MHz or 900MHz PowerPC G3
processors, 30GB or 40GB hard drives, 128MB or
256MB of RAM expandable to 640MB — plus
optional AirPort (802.11b) wireless networking
and FireWire, USB and Ethernet ports — the
iBook gives you world-class performance in
a slim, stunning design.

iLife—it all connects
Bundled with the iMac is a host of iLife
software applications including iTunes,
iPhoto, iMovie and iDVD. They let you be
creative with your pictures, music and
movies– and share them–in ways that PC
users can only dream about. And whether
you’re creating your own music CDs, editing
digital video, or authoring DVDs, you can do
all without thumbing through a manual.
1GHz 17-inch iMac
Computers for Music Creation
The world’s fastest personal computers and the first with a 64-bit processor — which
means they break the 4 GB barrier and can use up to 8 GB of main memory, Apples new
G5 line combines rock solid engineering reflective of the full-throttle Xserve architecture
with new technologies for massively enhanced output and connectivity. Available at speeds
up to dual 2GHz with a new ultra-high bandwidth system architecture featuring AGP 8X
and PCI-X these turbocharged Power Mac rips through digital video and audio projects
faster than Pentiums can say “uncle”.
Jointly developed by Apple and IBM, the 64-bit PowerPC G5 processor supports up to 8GB
of 400MHz, 128-bit DDR SDRAM — four times more than a typical PC. More main
memory and fast 6.4 GBps throughput means you can write large projects to memory 40x
faster than to a hard disk.
Available in three powerful configurations — 1.6GHz, 1.8GHz and a dual 2GHz model,
they each feature the legendary 4X SuperDrive (DVD-R/CD-RW), three PCI-X slots, one
FireWire 800 and two FireWire 400 ports, three USB 2.0 ports (plus two USB 1.1 ports on
the keyboard), ADC connector, DVI connector, analog audio I/O, optical S/PDIF I/O, front
headphone and speaker jack and built-in Gigabit Ethernet — as standard. In addition,all are AirPort Extreme-ready,
and offer Bluetooth capability as a build-to-order option. Finally, each Power Mac G5 is supported by Mac OS X’s robust
foundation, which features multithreading and symmetric multiprocessing for an additional performance boost.
Music and Audio
The latest in PCI technology, the PCI-X
protocol is perfect for high-performance
PCI devices, increasing speeds from
33MHz to 133MHz and throughput from
266MBps to 2GBps.
Gigabit Ethernet, FireWire, USB 2.0 and
optical digital and analog audio are all
integrated through two bidirectional 16bit, 800MHz HyperTransport interconnects
for a maximum throughput of 3.2GB per
The Power Mac G5 supports more tracks and more plug-ins than any previous Power Mac—
giving the audio pro a wealth of creative options all in a native environment. In addition, Mac
OS X Core Audio (see box on next page) offers a scalable platform supporting 32-bit high resolution audio, a plug-in called Audio Units for DSP and Virtual Instruments, and plug-and-play
connectivity for modern and legacy audio gear. And the built-in optical S/PDIF connects to
other audio equipment for pristine sound quality without troublesome ground loops.
Ultra-high bandwidth system architecture
features a 1GHz frontside bus — one on
each processor — for maximum throughput. And a point-to-point system controller
lets data move directly between subsystems,
without affecting processor function.
Designed for whisper-quiet operation, the
Power Mac G5’s enclosure houses four discrete thermal zones to compartmentalize
the primary heat-producing components.
Fans in the zones spin at very low speeds
resulting in a system three times quieter
than the Power Mac G4.
Simultaneous reverb plug-ins
Exceptional Performance
The dual 2GHz Power Mac G5 can play 115 tracks, compared with a maximum of 35 tracks on the
Dell Dimension 8300 and 81 tracks on the Dell Precision 650. More impressively, the 1.6GHz singleprocessor Power Mac G5 played 50 percent more tracks than the 3GHz Pentium 4–based system.

Musicians, audio pros and music educators have long recognized the Mac as the superior
platform for creativity. Historically, third party developers augmented the native capabilities
of Macintosh with a wide variety of hardware, software and system add-ons, making it
possible to use the Mac as a virtual recording studio. However, configuring such a studio
became quite complex, and didn’t allow for the highest level performance possible. With
Mac OS X, professional-level audio is here. Mac OS X Core Audio integrates audio functions
directly into the operating system in ways never before possible, enabling unprecedented
performance and ease of use in your virtual studio. Core Audio lays a new foundation for
the next generation of world-class audio and music applications from innovative developers.
Mac OS X delivers the best audio performance in desktop computing. The most fundamental measure of audio performance is throughput latency. That’s the time it takes for
audio to enter your Mac, travel through the system to your application and then pass back
out to your monitoring system (speakers). Historically, Mac OS offered excellent latency of
about 10ms. The Core Audio HAL (Hardware Abstraction Layer) provides ultra low latency
of only 1m — and you get this performance in a full multi-channel environment.
Stereophonic Multi-Channel
Previously you had to install third-party system extensions to work with more than a
2-channel stereo mix. Now with Mac OS X offering native support for multiple channels,
you can simultaneously record with more than two microphones, and perform large-scale
professional tape transfer in a single pass, with greatly improved performance. The Core
Audio HAL also allows multiple applications to share the same device. This means that you
could assign channels 1-6 of a eight channel output device to a multi-track program, such
as Logic, while leaving a virtual instrument like Reason with channels seven and eight.
High Fidelity
Core Audio manages all audio as 32-bit floating-point data. This allows your Mac to
efficiently handle 24-bit/96 kHz audio as well as higher resolutions. Core Audio also
delivers highly optimized sample rate converters to allow programs that do not yet use this
high-resolution format to provide data to Mac OS X without truncation.
Audio MIDI Setup
Mac OS X has an easy to use setup application called Audio MIDI Setup. This
provides applications with the ability to manage MIDI and define a system-wide MIDI
configuration that is available to all of your applications. In addition, Mac OS X provides
applications with Music Services, which are the fundamental functions of MIDI sequencers
including cut, copy, paste, repeat and other common MIDI editing routines.
In the absence of a system level plug-in architecture, third party developers created a vast
array of DSP effects which are mutually incompatible. Core Audio enables developers to
offer audio plug-ins in a more centralized manner, called Audio Units, making it simple to
manage the audio capabilities you add to your setup. Apple includes several Audio Units in
Mac OS X, including a Velocity Engine-optimized reverb and a sample rate converter.
Plug and Play
Mac OS X includes USB class drivers for connecting audio and MIDI devices to your Mac,
and will automatically recognize those devices that comply with industry-standard
specifications when you plug them in. You don’t have to install extra software to use them.

Compared with the AGP 4X interface, the
Power Mac G5’s AGP 8X Pro graphics bus
effectively doubles the maximum transfer
rate and doubles the amount of data transferred in a single AGP bus cycle. The
66MHz AGP 8X Pro bus strobes eight
times per clock cycle, achieving a 533MHz
data rate and a maximum bandwidth of
2.1GB per second — ideal for the ultrafast
ATI Radeon 9800 Pro or NVIDIA GeForce
FX 5200 Ultra graphics cards they include.
Mac OS X Core Audio
The PowerPC architecture was designed from
the beginning to run both 32-bit and 64-bit
application code, offering seamless transition
to 64-bit performance. Current 32-bit code
— such as Mac OS X, the Mac OS 9 Classic
environment and existing applications —
runs natively at processor speed. With no
interruptions to your workflow. And no
additional investment in software required.

17˝, 20˝ and 23˝ Digital
Flat-Panel Displays
An Apple display is an essential component of the Power
Mac G4 user experience. Apple offers a lineup of puredigital flat-panel displays that provide superior image quality and vivid color. The level of integration and the elegance
of these displays present Power Mac G4 users with the best
possible window on their work.
◆ With
razor-sharp images, deeply saturated
colors and brilliant screens, these best-of-class
displays offer 16.7 million colors, a wide viewing angle (170° horizontal and vertical),
incredible color fidelity, and an ultrafast pixel
response you’ll love when working with audio
applications— to say nothing of elegant
industrial design.
Set up is a snap, thanks to the Apple Display
Connector (ADC). A single cable carries the
digital graphics, power, and USB signals to the
display, dramatically reducing the number of
cables you have to deal with. Built-in, two-port
USB hub (discreetly positioned in the back of
the displays) lets you connect peripherals.
Twice the brightness, twice the sharpness, and twice the contrast ratio of the typical CRT
display. And unlike other flat panel displays, they are designed with a pure digital interface
to deliver distortion-free images that never need adjusting.
The 17˝ Apple Studio Display with 1280-by-1024-pixel resolution, is an ideal alternative to
a large CRT display
The 20˝ Apple Cinema Display features 1680 x 1050 pixel resolution for display of application palettes. Widescreen format for simultaneous display of two full pages of text and
graphics, or full-screen DVD and QT movies
The 23˝ Apple Cinema HD Display provides unparalleled image quality and richly
saturated color. Full high-definition resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels for display of high
definition (HD) still and video imagery. Even with such a wide viewing space, text remains

All Apple displays deliver the benefits of thin and light LCD
technology, with twice the brightness, twice the sharpness,
and twice the contrast of a standard CRT display. They can
be calibrated for color-managed workflow environments
and maintain consistent color and quality without
requiring frequent recalibrations. Apple displays feature an
adjustable base that allows users to adjust the viewing angle effortlessly. And since dual display
capabilities are built into every Power Mac G4, it is easier and more cost-effective than ever to add a second display.
Ultra-Thin Digital Music Players
The super-slim iPod redefines what a digital music player should be. It downloads
music at blazing speed and can hold up to 7500 song—so you can take your entire
music collection with you wherever you go. It weighs only 5.6 ounces—which is
incredibly, 15% lighter than 2 CDs! It is also 65% smaller than a CD and just
0.62 inches thick, so it comfortably fits in the palm of your hand or pocket — and
your life. Yet it offers a huge 10GB, 15GB or 30GB hard drive. Do the math: that’s
space enough to store three weeks of music — played continuously, 24/7 — or one
new song a day for the next 20 years. Available for Mac and Windows the iPod
incorporates hassle-free functionality and stunning, well-considered design that
places it far ahead of the curve and the competition. Use the touch wheel to quickly and easily scroll through an entire music collection—using just one hand!
The iPod is designed for listening to digital
music away from your computer — Mac or
Windows—and one simple connection does
it all. A handy dock connector on the bottom enables the iPod to link to a computer
and sync files via FireWire 400 (Mac or
Windows) or USB 2.0 (Windows only). The
result? Blazingly fast transfer speeds that let
you load an album in as little as 10 seconds.
The 15GB and 30GB iPod come with a dock
that makes charging and syncing easier than
ever. An elegant, convenient home base for
iPod on a desk or connected to a home
stereo system, the dock provides syncing via
FireWire or USB 2.0, charging via FireWire
and audio line out for connecting to powered speakers or a stereo system.
Designed to give you the best portable digital music experience ever, the iPod delivers
the highest sound quality from input to output. iPod supports the most popular audio
formats including MP3 (up to 320 kbps),
MP3 Variable Bit Rate (VBR) and WAV —
giving you access to a wide range of audio
file types. And iPod is the only portable digital music player that supports the AAC format (Mac-only), which features CD-quality
audio in smaller file sizes than MP3, so you
can fit even more songs on your iPod.
Have a particular set of songs you want to
hear? Queue up as many songs as you like in
a playlist while away from your computer.
Want to customize the iPod interface to fit
your musical leanings? Just look under settings in the Main menu.

Bundled with the iPod (Mac version) as well as any Apple computer,
iTunes 4 is easily the world’s best best application for managing and
enjoying your music. iTunes allows you to manage an entire music
collection with one application. Everything is in one place—downloads
are in the same library as other music you’ve collected. Create personal
playlists or Smart Playlists that update automatically based on your
listening patterns and preferences. Listen to your music on a Mac or
your iPod, or burn a custom CD of favorite songs or playlists. iTunes 4
provides a soundtrack to your life—add music to slideshows, soundtracks to movies, and background music to DVDs.
A big part of MPEG-4 specifications, AAC
(Advanced Audio Coding) is a cuttingedge encoding audio codec that’s perfect
for the Internet. AAC compresses much
more efficiently than older formats like
MP3 (which iTunes supports), while delivering quality rivaling that of uncompressed
CD audio. In fact, AAC audio files compressed at 128 kbps (stereo) will be indistinguishable from the original uncompressed audio source.
Music Sharing feature uses Rendezvous to
give you remote streaming access to your
personal music library from any room in
your house. You don’t have to manually
configure anything, Rendezvous seeks out
the other Macs on your local network and
connects to them automatically.
Generate dynamic Smart Playlists that
reflect your preferences and listening
habits. Instead of having to create playlists
manually by clicking and dragging individual songs, you simply indicate what kind
of music you like to hear. Set parameters
with attributes such as Genre, Composer,
Artist, Play Count, Last Played and so on
— and then creates a personalized playlist
that’s in tune with your preferences.

build a slideshow in iPhoto, add a background soundtrack to your latest iMovie, or
liven up your motion menus in iDVD.
With iTunes it’s easy to create CDs that play
in your car, home stereo, Macs and on
Windows-based PCs. With iTunes 4
though, CD burning gets even better with
Soundcheck. Whenever you select a playlist
in your library, the Browse button
automatically turns into the Burn button.
Click Burn CD, insert a blank disc and
iTunes burns away. It’s that simple.
iTunes 4 can play spoken word content
from Audible, the service that provides
digital versions of books and publications.

Personal Digital Music Library
Audio Computer
When today’s computers are on the drawing board, audio professionals are
somewhere between the bottom and nowhere on the designer’s list of target
users. Working from the outside in, the average PC case does little more than
keep the dog out. Covers and plastic front panels are wafer thin and employ
clips rather than fasteners wherever possible, so as well as offering minimal
sound insulation they also rattle like a snare drum when you monitor anything
below 500Hz. They’re also not designed to travel, so if you use a computer for
audio, chances are you pretty much accept being tied to your own studio.
On the other hand, the sophisticated manipulation of audio is one of the
toughest jobs you could throw at a computer. Accurate timing and synchronization rely heavily on highly stable processing, and one minute of one track
of full bandwidth audio soaks up the same amount of memory as the text of ten novels. But the unremitting pressure to
lower the price of consumer PCs frequently means manufacturers resort to the cheapest available components. From simple
things like switches, down to boards, drives and even memory. And with the emphasis on straightforward ‘office’ applications
and web browsing, expandability and future proofing are also low on the list of priorities. Spare motherboard slots for example
and bays for additional internal and removable storage, are frequently in short supply or absent altogether. . .
Welcome to the AC1 Audio Computer
19˝ Rackmount Case Design
A PC fully loaded for audio can weigh as much as 50 lbs heavier than most studio power amps. The design of a 19˝ rack
mount enclosure to safely support this type of load, and
accommodate requirements for a high level of access and
connectivity, presents several unique challenges.
Carillon uses a box (case) that is over- engineered from high
grade aluminum and 2mm 14-gauge steel to provide an
incredibly strong and totally rigid housing. A full 4U height
contributes to a particularly well cooled, spacious interior with
generous capacity for retro-fit components. The massive front
panel is precision die cast in ADC 12/LM2 aluminum alloy by
10,000psi high pressure casting machines. This method is far
more costly than regular gravity die casting but delivers a
stronger, more consistent material, cast to much closer tolerances.
But the Carillon Audio Computer is equally at home on the
desktop largely due to specially designed, removable Sorbothane
feet. If you do prefer this arrangement, it’s worth noting that the
fourteen gauge cover supports a conventional 17˝ monitor
effortlessly. And nowhere is this heavy duty approach more
appropriate than on the road—making these computers ideal for
live and mobile recording use.
Internal layout is clean & spacious and the full-size ATX
motherboards have six PCI slots and four USB ports for
maximum expandability. Carillon uses Intel Pentium processors
exclusively to consistently deliver the floating-point performance
necessary for DSP intensive multitrack digital audio.
Front Panel
With software equivalents of most music technology hardware now available,
‘software only’ production is reality for a small but growing number of
producers. But real controls are fast and fun so Carillon includes a bay to
receive a variety of inexpensive optional control boards like ‘tape’ transport
buttons, MIDI controller knobs and a jog-shuttle edit controller. The bay is
user accessible by way of stainless steel hex bolts used to fix the main bezel.
High temperatures in some fully loaded enclosed racks, particularly live
racks stacked with power amps, necessitate the intake of cooler air through
the front panel. The intake features an easily replaceable filter.
There is a standard Neutrik bay housing the highest quality audio socket
routed through to the computer’s back panel. It can be permanently
connected to the soundcard which often employs fiddly consumer grade
connectors intended for infrequent ‘install and leave’ use. Alternatively, you
can use it for a stereo headphone output.
In addition to three 51⁄4˝ bays, the Pentium 4 compatible chassis can
accommodate a further two drives mounted transversely inside the
machine, both in noise cancelling Silent Drive enclosures.
In an ideal world with little pressure on finances and floor space, noisy stuff like tape machines and
computers are exiled to a ‘machine room’ which is acoustically isolated from the studio mixing
area. But for many, even if the space is available, countless items come above a separate machine
room on the studio shopping list, so the computer sits in the heart of the studio physically as well as
well as functionally. The reality is that most studios operate from one room.
In this situation, comfortable, accurate monitoring is seriously compromised by a noisy computer
(how can you hear your gate thresholds properly, or long fade-outs against a background of fan and
drive noise?). Worse still, the need to record clean acoustic instruments and vocals can rule out the
use of a standard PC altogether. Particularly when you can’t run a microphone cable into the bathroom because you are recording yourself!
Solid State
Splendid Isolation
Anyone who has ever rested an acoustic
instrument on a wooden table while playing,
knows that vibrations are transmitted and
amplified when solid objects make contact.
To combat this the AC-1 incorporates
absorbent rubber gaskets to the rear of the
19" rack ears, to reduce metal-to-metal
contact between the computer and the rack,
and so reduce vibration transmitted from
one to the other.
Big Foot
For desktop users
Carillon designed
large removable
feet, utilizing
Sorbothane. This
unique material is
used to isolate
scientific instruments and audiophile equipment from vibration. Its high
storage modulus means that an extremely
high proportion of input energy is dissipated
rather than transmitted. (Although
Sorbothane is extremely expensive, the feet
are standard.)
Today’s hard drives run at speeds of up to 10,000
RPM. Power hungry applications need the fastest
processors and processors will always be able to
run faster if you cool them down.
We’ve selected the real ‘church mouse’
components. Super quiet hard drives, foam lined
sound-proof enclosures, Silent Systems processor
fans and our own Carillon low noise PSU.
The power supply is typically a computers
noisiest single component. The Carillon
UltraMute PSU combines special low hum
transformers with an all new fan, featuring substantially smoother fan-motor bearings and a
reduced turbulence fan blade design.
A unique processor fan incorporates a radical 360% (radial fin heat sink). This patented design
provides far greater surface area than conventional for increased heat dissipation with a reduced
airflow requirement. In practice this means the fan can run far slower and more quietly.
However advanced the drive design, whirring
drive platters and clicking heads can be further
isolated by enclosing the drive completely in an
acoustic sleeve. Carillon’s Molex Silent Systems
foam lined sleeve reduces drive noise by over 90%
and includes two aluminum plates that conduct
heat into the surrounding air and chassis mounts,
and provide earth grounding.
Carillon fits Quantum Fireball plus hard drives as
standard. They feature Quantum's own QDT (Quiet Drive Technology) and produce at least 4dB
less noise than the average for comparably specified drives. We also offer the more expensive
Fujitsu ‘dynamic pressure bearing’ drives as an option (marginally the quietest at the time of
going to press) but find that the Silent Drive enclosure is so effective that, once fitted, the
difference between the two brands is negligible.
Inevitably, a first impression of hardware noise is an
early topic of conversation, and nearly
everyone asks if we’ve switched it on yet! That really
says more than a thousand dB measurements.
Simply speaking, while Macs and PCs have always
been clearly audible, the Carillon AC-1 is only barely
audible - even in the quietest studio environments.
But don’t take our word for it. These graphs show
the relative noise levels for a Dell PC, a Macintosh
G4 and our Carillon Audio Computer, measured
during busy hard disk activity and while idling.

The AC-1 enclosure design cuts hardware
noise in two ways: First, the sound insulation
properties of the thick steel and aluminum
case substantially reduce transmitted noise
from internal components. Second, the
rigidity of these heavy gauge materials
combined with the use of secure bolt
fastenings, make for a highly vibrationdamped structure. This effectively eliminates
rattles and buzzes ‘in sympathy’ with fans,
drives and the music you're monitoring.
Quieter by Design
Carillonfix: Remote Control
Technical Support
Although they’ll be properly manned, Carillon does expect the
telephone lines to be quiet for a computer music company. But if
their on-screen manual doesn’t show you how and they can’t talk you
through it, they’ll be down but not out.
Carillonfix is a custom remote control application that lets their support engineers literally take the controls of your computer online. Book
a session by phone or in the owners section on their website, launch the
application at the arranged time and wait for them to dial in.
If you send a computer back to the supplier to fix a software problem
you’re none the wiser when you get it back. Working the Carillon way,
you can watch them do repairs on screen (yes, the mouse actually
moves) and communicate with their engineer via the onscreen chat
window. Discuss the pattern of the problem for example, even ask to see a particular fix again.
In the event of an irreparable software problem Carillonfix gives offers one final option. When they build your system they burn a
hard drive backup onto CD. It is supplied with the computer but in case you’re not confident about re-installation, Carillon also
keeps a copy filed with your personal details. With your permission they can reconfigure your entire system online for you to start
afresh. Unfortunately though, even Carillon can’t fix your hardware online, but they’re confident enough about their build quality
to cover hardware failure with an advance replacement guarantee for components. Alternatively they’ll collect your machine,
repair it and send it back to you within three working days.
Loopstation: On–Line Sampling
Carillons exclusive On-Line Loopstation Application, searches, previews and downloads
from a huge range of studio quality samples free of charge. Each Carillon AC-1 audio
computer has the Loopstation search engine pre-installed. Simply click on the Loop icon on
your desktop and once the Carillon server recognizes your unique user ID, you’re into the
latest library. You’ll soon discover that the sample search engine is by far the most intuitive
and exhaustive anywhere. Sounds and loops are logically multi-layer indexed and you can
browse a full list of relevant samples, however far you have refined your search. But despite
being sophisticated, its remarkably quick, employing hardware style logic for the user interface with absolutely no screen redraws.
Preview and download are simplicity itself
(Carillon has their own dedicated servers
and E1 connection guaranteeing the fastest
possible transfer), but where Carillon
really shines is the quality of the samples these are definitely not your average
coverdisc promos. Thousands of Nevemixed, Apogee-converted, 24-bit samples
as good, or better by category than
anything else out there—free of charge.
In addition to these free of charge
sounds the Carillon Loopstation will
also carry an increasing range of third
party samples, available for Carillon
owners to download at a substantial
discount. (And remember, you don’t
need a software sampler to use samples
in your music. The samples are encoded
as .WAV files, compatible with all the
leading sequencing software.)
The right sample can make a track - but
finding that sound from poorly classified
data currently available can take longer
than most of us can afford. The ultra flexible engine lets you direct the search. Say
you’re working on a disco house track and
looking for a drum loop: search ‘loops by
style’, select ‘house’, find ‘disco’ and refine
by instrument (maybe choosing ‘drums’,
then ‘acoustic’), before listing samples.

Viewable Image Size
You’ve made the decision to buy a computer system. Or you simply want to upgrade your monitor. Great! Now... which one should you choose?
With so many sizes, features and technologies available, choosing the right display to fit your needs can be confusing. Sony understands that different people have different needs. So they’ve created a full line of Flat Panel LCDs -a comprehensive variety of models each offering the perfect blend
of features and performance.
Are you ready for performance beyond
your expectations? Whether you’re
recording, mixing, editing or capturing
— no matter the production environment
— the Trip2 will reward you with a
stress-free storage experience. Since
Glyph puts its Oxford 911- based bridge
board in the tray with every drive, you
are assured that your data integrity and
performance will be consistent wherever
you take it.
Specifically designed for high-resolution audio, as well as the high-bandwidth requirements of video, Trip2 allocates audio files to
multiple drives allowing you to achieve maximum track counts at today’s high sample rates. Plus, a single FireWire Hot-Swap
Tabletop receiver is included with the Trip2 so you can take your work on the road. Last, the Trip2 is ultra quiet, employing
Glyph’s QuietMetal which reduces noise from vibration. No matter the audio environment, the Trip2 offers options that go way
beyond an off-the-shelf storage system.
The multiple ARM processors embedded in
each Oxford 911 chip throughout the system (one processor for each drive), provide
better than ever control and peak performance that will improve over time.
For seamless integration into your studio
choose from configurations with six hotswappable drives, AIT back up, and DVDRW, or 12 hot-swappable drives for over
2TB. Trip2 makes it easy for you to allocate
files and use round robin features of DAWs
to achieve 108 tracks of 192 kHz audio.
Durable 3RU rack mountable enclosure
QuietMetal construction for each drive isolates vibration eliminating external noise
and enables ultra-quiet operation for your
studio environment.
Silent operation is enhanced by automatic
thermal-sensing cooling to limit fan noise,
prolong the life of your system, and protect
your work.
Up to 180GB (FireWire-only models) or 120GB (FireWire/USB combo models).
7,200 rpm, ATA/100 drives with a 2MB cache and Oxford 911 chip for smooth, consistent
data transfer.
Small, durable, polycarbonate case runs quietly, is portable and easy to use anywhere.

True FireWire Hot-Swappable
Hard Drive Technology
You can move projects from one room to
another; you can track directly to it, or use
a different drive for each client’s work. You
can send a drive home with a customer, or
use one drive to back up the data on
another one. The possibilities are endless
with this receiver and tray design.
What sets this system apart from all other
“Hot-Swap FireWire” products is that the
Glyph hot-swap interface operates according to the IEEE 1394 standard. The bridge
board is built into the drive/tray. One of
the benefits of FireWire is hot-swappability, which means you remove or insert the
tray at the FireWire interface level.
Removing a hot swap drive interrupts the
data signal at the FireWire bus rather than
on the ATA bus as with other hot swap
systems, thus ensuring data integrity and
consistency. Glyph’s FireWire interconnectivity backplane assures you the best interface to maintain the integrity of your data.
High performance 7200 RPM hard drives
available in 40, 60 or 120GB capacities.
The netDrive FireWire
hard drive is a
value-priced, sleek
portable storage solution
for demanding
environments. They
deliver high performance
with a dual port, standard
6-pin FireWire and USB
2.0 interface. Designed in
a small, light package, it allows you to move your data files quickly, reliably and easily.
With the Trip2 Tabletop, you can move projects from one
room to another; can track directly to it, or use a different
drive for each client’s work. You can send a drive home with
a customer, or use one drive to back up the data on another
one. The possibilities are endless with this receiver and tray
design. The Trip2 Tabletop accepts the same Glyph drive/tray
technology as the Trip2. It includes a built-in power supply
and standard dual 6-pin powered FireWire interface.
Imagine being able to record in the studio, pull the FireWire drive and take it home to mix the record there.
Now Glyph’s latest high-tech hotswap and
bridging technology, first introduced in the
3U-rack Trip2 is available in the smaller,
portable form factor of a tabletop drive

When you’re recording in the studio, any piece of gear that makes
background noise is going to get in the way of your session. That’s
why some people try to silence their gear by putting noisy hard
drive units in “isolation boxes” to muffle the noise of the drives
and fans spinning. Unfortunately, “iso” boxes suffer from heat
buildup. Even in the best boxes, it's nearly impossible to get total
acoustic isolation and also get the heat out of the hard drive that's
in the box.
Most of the noise in a hard drive system comes from the hard
drive itself, and the fans used to circulate air through the enclosure.
Noise is vibration, and it is the vibration of the hard drives and
fans that is so objectionable in an audio recording studio.
So Glyph studied the situation, and decided to block the vibration
of the hard drive and fan from getting to the chassis, where it
could make its way into the studio. The clear place to do this was
in the mounting hardware that holds the drives and fans within
the chassis.
QuietMetal Tri-Laminate
Glyph took advantage of advanced composite metals technology,
and incorporated a tri-laminate — two layers of metal skin,
separated (and bonded) by a viscoelastic polymer core — into
their systems to dampen vibration and control noise. The
tri-laminate metal actually absorbs vibration before it can get to
the unit chassis. Extensive research and testing demonstrated that
careful application of QuietMetal would dramatically cut the noise
level produced by the hard drives and fans.
Glyph uses QuietMetal for the internal drive frames and rear fan
panels, making their products the quietest high-performance
storage systems available today. The combination of viscoelastic
damping and secure fastenings, along with our use of the latest in
quiet drive mechanisms, virtually eliminates vibrational noise. This
translates into a storage solution that is significantly quieter than
the rest of the gear in your studio — which means your recording
is quieter, too.
The FireWire Fixed-Drive Tabletop is the ultimate solution for your
project and mobile studio. It includes a built-in power supply and a
standard dual 6-pin powered FireWire interface, and it’s built in a
sturdy steel case. It features the latest technological advancements
from Glyph, including QuietMetal to eliminate noise, and exclusive
FireWire bridging technology. This high performance hard drive system
is available in capacities up to 180GB so you can record, mix and edit multi-track audio. It will even handle high definition
sample rates, and includes Glyph Audio Storage Toolkit formatting and partitioning software.

In multi-track audio there are generally numerous data files for each
track, especially with punch-ins and edits. The rotational speed of the
platters directly affects the number of audio tracks you can achieve
because of the time taken for the drive to find and process the various
files. Files are written to the different sectors across the platter, over the
course of your project these files become non-contiguous, resulting in
drive fragmentation. The heads move back and forth across the platters
to write and read the scattered data. Because of the time it takes for the
data to pass underneath the heads, drives with slower spindle speeds
like 7,200 RPM take longer to access each file than drives with speeds of
10,000 and 15,000 RPM. Audio applications are very demanding on
drives since small delays in the delivery of requested files results in playback errors. Faster speeds yield extra audio tracks with more edits. This
is also why that bargain price 5,400 RPM drive is useless for your DAW.
These are classics. Totally customizable, you can
have any two devices configured however you need
them. Whether you need dual hot-swappable hard
drives, a single hard drive with a tape back up
device, or even a single tape back up device with a media storage bay, this is the multi-functional, rack space saving classic.

High-performance Tape Back-up
As robust as today’s hard drives may be they are still
mechanical devices that will stop working one day. In
addition, with the advent of 96kHz and higher sampling
rates, audio files are larger then ever, which means we
need more and more storage space. With this in mind,
high capacity, reliable backup solutions are even more
critical than ever. Tape is a natural backup method
because of its long shelf life and durability. It also provides greater
transfer speeds than previous methods while constantly offering higher storage capacities. Glyph offers AIT drives in
FireWire and SCSI, tabletop and rack-mountable. The AIT line is available in capacities of 35GB, 50GB and 100GB per
tape, utilizing AIT-1, AIT-2 and AIT-3 respectively. The AIT format was developed to handle large capacity requirements
for data-intensive applications, and works exceptionally well for digital audio and video. It employs a helical scan recording
style in which data tracks are written at an angle relative to the edge of the tape. This provides higher density recording,
giving you lower media costs and increased efficiency by storing more data on a smaller amount of tape.
Why Backup?
Backing up and archiving your data is easy and extremely important. When you consider
how much time you put into your work, and how large your files can be, regular
preventative system maintenance is much less painful than re-creating a session or project.
In digital audio and video production, you rely on your system to the point that data loss
can be devastating. No matter how well you treat your system, you cannot guarantee your
data will be safe if it exists in only one place.
A backup is a copy of your data in a separate place from the original, such as a hard drive,
tape, DVD or CD. Many people backup their work to tape at the end of the session or on
session breaks. Programs, such as Retrospect or Mezzo, allow you to keep track of what has
been backed up, and what hasn’t. At a glance you can see when the last backup occurred,
and what files were copied. As you continue to record, edit or add new files to your
working drive, continue to back up that data by running the backup program again.
You may also consider backing up your data on hot swappable hard drives. The working
drive and backup drive can be the same capacity, making it easy to keep your files organized on both drives. Some people use the Trip2 as both working drives and backup drives.
Record your 64 tracks of 96K 24bit audio to three drives at a time, then backup to the
other three at the end of the session.
Tape is often used for longer term backup because it is more likely to survive an accidental
drop than a hard drive. Recovering data from a hard drive is not easy, and is expensive.
Optical media may be the most robust for the long term archiving. Optical media, like CD
or DVD, provides you more cost-effective options for restoring your data.
Like tape, hard disk drives are magnetic devices. Just as tape can exhibit dropouts or
degaussing, a hard drive can crash or have bad sectors and irreplaceable data can be lost
forever, unless it has been backed up. The best practice is to regularly back up your projects
to tape, and over long periods of time archive your data with optical media such as DVD.
Optical media offers a longer shelf life than tape and is usually easier to store on your shelves.
Glyph provides fast, large capacity backup and archiving systems with the option of a
FireWire or SCSI interface. SCSI AIT3 offers capacities up to 100GB native, and the
FireWire AIT1 and AIT2 tape back up is reliable and extremely easy to use.
