Lynx Studio Technology’s LT-FW LSlot FireWire interface ($595) for Aurora converters is now available. The LT-FW allows Lynx Aurora 8 and Aurora 16 AD/DA converters to be interfaced with and controlled by computers with FireWire connectivity, including portable computers from Apple and PC manufacturers. The LT-FW is a FireWire 400 interface that allows up to 32 channels of analog and digital I/O 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 drivers for Windows, and Core Audio for Mac OS X. LT-FW’s full WDM implementation allows multiple channel support of 5.1 and 7.1 surround playback formats.
When the LT-FW is used with an Aurora converter, Aurora goes into “remote control” 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.
