For over a dozen years, Apogee Electronics has set the standards in digital audio. From the ﬁrst high-deﬁnition ﬁlter designs to the latest high-end, high-resolution, high sample-rate converters, Apogee has led the ﬁeld. For our next products, we decided to set our engineering department some new and challenging goals. They were to design a new line of conversion products especially for the project studio owner. It should be made available at a lower price point, but without risking the quality—there was no way would we consider compromising the unique sound of an Apogee converter simply to meet a price.
The result is Apogee’s new Solution Series.
No-compromise conversion products, true Apogee quality, tailor-made for your project studio, at a price you can easily justify. Now everyone can own an Apogee—beginning with the astonishing Rosetta AD 24-bit, 2-channel analog to digital converter.
The Apogee Rosetta AD Converter is a 24-bit analog to digital converter with all the most common digital interfaces—AES/EBU, ADAT, TDIF and S/PDIF—included as standard. The feature set of the Rosetta AD has been carefully tailored to project studio requirements. You won’t pay for extensive features you’ll never use: we carefully researched exactly what facilities you need and expect from an outboard A/D converter… and deliver them in an affordable, compact, 1U rack-mount package.
The Apogee Rosetta AD Converter features analog nputs operating at pro or consumer levels, balanced or unbalanced. The highest quality Apogee 24-bit conversion drives two AES/EBU outputs so you can feed two machines at once. In addition, ADAT, TDIF, and S/PDIF coax/optical interfaces are all built-in, for the absolute maximum in quality and ﬂexibility.
Choose the standard version, with 44.1/48 kHz sample rates; or go for gold with the 96 kHz version, offering 44.1,48, 88.2 and 96 kHz sample rates. You can even upgrade from one to the other. Apogee’s renowned SoftLimit® technology allows you to record at the maximum level without overs, and our new high-resolution UV22HR® process allows you to generate ﬂawless16- and 20-bit masters retaining as much of the original 24-bit resolution as possible. Apogee’s exacting analog and digital design assures top audio performance without compromise, including excellent stereo imaging and the unique, transparent Apogee sound.
The panel of the Apogee Rosetta AD Converter is designed for quick andeasy operation. Every function has its own control, clearly labeled to avoid confusion. The metering features easy-to-read bar-graph LEDs with oversize “over” indicators—and you can determine how many consecutive digital full-scale samples constitute an over. Try the Rosetta AD at your Apogee dealer today. You’ll ﬁnd it the perfect future-ready tool for translating analog signals to digital—without compromise—at a price you can afford. The quality of Apogee converters is the foundation of our reputation. We just made it easier to own one.
The Apogee Rosetta AD Converter includes all the most common standard industry digital interfaces—ADAT, TDIF, AES/EBU and S/PDIF (optical and coax).It’s the ideal front-end for all your digital gear, from CD and DAT recorders to modular digital multitracks; from computers to videoeditors (see below).Interfacing your present or future gear is a snap
