The Rosetta 200 converter, Apogee's successor to the PSX-100 and Rosetta AD namesake, delivers the quality of the popular Rosetta 800 in a 2-channel AD/DA solution. Like the Rosetta 800, the 200 features premium Apogee A/D and D/A conversion, 192k sampling rates (standard), optional Pro Tools HD, Mix and FireWire expansion cards and core Apogee technologies such as UV22HR and SoftLimit. And while the Rosetta 200 shares much of its feature set with its cousin, it throws in some irresistible extras such as the CODA Audio Finishing Module, full channel metering, and MIDI and S/PDIF input and output. Flexibility and features galore make the Rosetta 200 an outstanding option for professional and project studios, mastering engineers, and audio archivists. And now it's approved for use with Pro Tools HD 8 hardware and software running on Mac OS X 10.5.5 or Windows XP SP 2.

Legendary Apogee Conversion in High-Definition

The most crucial component in the digital recording environment is high-quality A/D conversion and the most trusted and desirable converters are made by Apogee. With up to 192k sample rates, the Rosetta 200 Converter combines Apogee's legendary conversion quality with flexibility that complements any digital audio workstation.

The CODA: Audio Finishing Module, including the Aptomizer, Sample Rate Conversion (SRC), and UV22HR

As higher definition audio becomes ever-present in the recording process and music continues to be delivered as a product at 44.1kHz/16-bit you need tools to minimize the loss of detail and quality that can be inherent in the course of music production.

To meet these challenges Apogee has developed CODA. Unique to the Rosetta 200, CODA offers a trio of tools that will preserve the integrity of hi-def recordings with a minimal loss of quality. Heading up the CODA threesome is Apogee's "Aptomizer." With the Apotimizer you can maximize levels with out increasing noise and distortion. Great for recording, and mastering, the Apotimizer's "Learn" mode allows the Rosetta 200 to automatically determine the optimum level, and use it consistently to normalize incoming audio.

Another aspect of CODA is premium sample rate conversion (SRC). In the past, Apogee hardware has not offered sample rate conversion because the results were disappointing but recent advances have made SRC a viable option and now a vital part of CODA. With Apogee's implementation of sample rate conversion you can up or down sample without noticeably affecting the quality of your audio. Apogee's "UV22HR" dithering technology completes the CODA triangle by offering powerful reduction of high-resolution digital audio to 16 bits for the Internet and CD mastering. It is estimated that UV22HR is used on 8 out of 10 commercially released CDs in the U.S. The Rosetta 200 with CODA on board provides an end-to-end solution for capturing and optimizing high definition digital.

Connect directly to Pro Tools HD and Mix systems

(X-HD card, X-Digi-Mix card)

Like the all new generation Apogee hardware, the Rosetta 200 has an expansion card slot that accommodates all Apogee X-Series cards. This gives the Rosetta 200 ADA Converter outstanding connection capability to Pro Tools HD and Mix systems. With either the optional X-HD card or the optional X-Digi-Mix card connect the Rosetta 200 directly to your Pro Tools core card, no other hardware required.

Professional FireWire connectivity (X-FireWire card)

FireWire and digital audio are turning pro with Apogee's X-FireWire card. With the optional FireWire card installed, you'll be able to connect the Rosetta 200 natively to any FireWire input device, with near zero latency and without the need for additional hardware.

SoftLimit: Maximize Levels, Minimize Overs

One of the greatest difficulties in digital recording is getting an adequate level without clipping and unwanted distortion. With Apogee's SoftLimit, you can maximize digital output levels without overs.

Intelliclock: Dual Stage Jitter Reduction

Another essential for outstanding digital recording is maintaining an ultra-low-jitter, clock signal. To accomplish this, Rosetta 200 Converter utilizes Apogee's Intelliclock. Intelliclock is really two clocks in one. 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.
