Lynx Studio Technology has announced a revised version of the LT-HD firmware for their Aurora converters. The LT-HDx 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.
Avid made some great improvements with the HDX card and Pro Tools 10. The new LT-HDx 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.
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.
Thousands of studios worldwide have adopted Aurora converters as their standard, for its pristine audio quality, versatility and value. This update for the LT-HD card gives even more versatility to Aurora.
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-HDx functionality at no charge with a simple firmware update. New hardware is not required.
