Eight channels of ProTools HD I/O.
This package includes the Lynx LT-HD LSlot interface and the Lynx Aurora 8 AD/DA Converter. Together they represent eight channels of fast, full fidelity I/O for Pro-Tools HD Systems.
Lynx Studio Technology has announced a revised version of the LT-HD firmware for their Aurora converters. The LT-HD version 10 firmware update for the LT-HD card allows the Aurora 8 to emulate the interface characteristics of the Avid HD I/O converter, allowing seamless operation with Avid systems including HDX and HD Native.
Avid has made great improvements with the HDX card and Pro Tools 10. The new LT-HDx firmware update for the LT-HD card 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 the ability to use Lynx and Avid hardware in the same system with sample accuracy.
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.
Easily installed in Aurora’s LSlot bay, the LT-HD allows Lynx converters to be used in all current ProTools|HD systems. This is a truly plug and play system. LT-HD’s hardware and on-board software streamline installation and set-up, bringing Aurora audio quality and channel count to the ProTools system. LT-HD provides signal latency identical to that of the Avid converter for accurate delay compensation within ProTools - no manual delay adjustments are required.
