New Firmware offers improved performance with Avid systems
Press Release: Lynx Studio Technology has announced a revised version of the LT-HD firmware for their Aurora converters. The LT-HD Version 10 firmware update allows the Aurora 16 and Aurora 8 to emulate the interface characteristics of the Avid HD I/O converter, allowing seamless operation with the latest Pro Tools offerings from Avid. Lynx has also announced a limited time offer for buyers to get the LT-HD card with updated LT-HD firmware for free when purchased with a new Aurora converter.
Avid made several improvements with the HDX card and Pro Tools 10. The new LT-HD firmware update allows current and new Aurora owners to get the most out of their Pro Tools HDX or Native equipped studio. Emulation of the HD I/O delay allows lower latency monitoring and the ability to use Lynx and Avid hardware in the same system with sample accuracy,” stated Bob Bauman, Lynx co-founder and chief hardware engineer, who spearheaded the LT-HD firmware project.
New features include:
Two modes of Avid HD I/O emulation: 32-channel mode provides two instances of the 8 x 8 x 8 analog and digital in and out model, 16-channel mode provides one instance of the 16 x 16 analog in and out model.
Emulation of HD I/O delay times to ensure accurate delay compensation within Pro Tools. No manual adjustments needed.
Improved internal clock management provides compatibility with changes in Avid hardware.
For a limited time Lynx is offering the opportunity to purchase an Aurora 8, Aurora 16 or Aurora 16-VT with the LT-HD card preinstalled at no added cost. This is a retail savings of $395, if the LT-HD is purchased separately. This special will run from July 20 to October 31, 2012.
Lynx has always been committed to long-term support of our customers’ needs. Current owners of LT-HD equipped Aurora converters can update to the LT-HD functionality at no charge with a simple firmware update. New hardware is not required.
