Anticipated since Aurora’s introduction in 2004, the LT-FW is a FireWire 400 interface that allows up to 32 channels of analog and digital input and output at sample rates up to 96 kHz. At 192 kHz the user can access 16 channels of analog and digital I/O.
The LT-FW supports ASIO and WDM for Windows and CoreAudio for Mac OSX. LT-FWâ€™s full WDM implementation allows multiple channel support of 5.1 and 7.1 surround playback formats. â€œWe have also developed a new remote control application for Aurora. In conjunction with the latest Aurora Firmware, the Aurora Remote Control Application now allows up to 18 inputs to be monitored for the first four analog output channels,â€ explained David A. Hoatson, Lynx co-founder. â€œThis allows two full stereo sub-mixes of all available analog inputs in addition to monitoring digital inputs and software playback.â€
When the LT-FW is used with an Aurora converter, Aurora goes into â€œremote controlâ€ mode using the Lynx Aurora Remote Control application. All relevant settings, such as sample rate selection, sync source selection, channel routing, and buffer size are enabled and controlled from the host computer. The two FireWire connectors allow daisy chaining of LT-FW equipped Aurora converters.
Lynx Studio Technology’s LT-FW is available now for $595. More information on the Lynx Studio Technology Lynx LT-FW.
