The Apogee X-FireWire Card gives you the power and convenience of a direct connection to any FireWire equipped computer. Based on new S800 standards (with backwards compatibility for S400 connections) the X-FireWire Card uses an expansion slot in the AD-16X, BIG BEN, DA-16X, Rosetta 800, and Rosetta 200 to give users of Logic, Nuendo and other popular software the option of amazing sounding Apogee conversion. With low-latency Core Audio (Mac) and ASIO drivers for leading operating systems, your hardware options for your DAW are greatly expanded.
The two ports on the Apogee X-FireWire Card allow you to daisy-chain additional devices to create an entire system. By extending the bus, the X-FireWire card allows for daisy-chaining of multiple Apogee systems or compatible peripherals, and permits the use of multiple FireWire devices by computers with only one port. The card also passes power through the FireWire ports to allow the powering of additional devices.
