Apogee Electronics Corporation has updated its Symphony PCI driver to include two new features: VBus and Performance Tuning. VBus provides unlimited routing possibilities across multiple applications in any Symphony equipped Mac G5 or Mac Pro. With VBus, users have the ability to create virtual hardware buses, which allows audio to be routed within an audio application or between different audio applications. For example, it is now possible in Logic Pro to record a submix of multiple audio tracks onto a new audio track.
The Performance Tuning feature makes it possible to further reduce the latency of a Symphony system. When set to High Performance, Apogee states that latency is reduced to previously unattainable levels.
