Next-Gen Conversion for Pro Tools|HD

This Lynx Aurora (n) 8-HD with preinstalled LT-HD option provides you with pro-quality digital conversion and ultra-low-latency performance. The Aurora (n) 8-HD gives you up to 192kHz analog to digital and digital to analog conversion with front panel control of all routing and sample rate options. Word clock and MIDI I/O connectors provide you with additional sync options, and the preinstalled LT-HD card provides you with maximum bandwidth and minimal latency. Aurora (n) models give you up to 32-channel recording and playback to microSD for stand-alone operation or confidence recording, as well as two audiophile-grade headphone outs, while a TFT LCD display provides immediate status information. Leveraging high-end Lynx Hilo technology and utilizing cutting-edge FPGA processors, Aroura (n) delivers even greater transparency, with significantly lower noise and distortion than previous models. For excellent conversion quality, Sweetwater recommends the Lynx Aurora (n) 8-HD.

Outfitted with all of the I/O options you need

The Aurora (n) 8-HD provides you with professional I/O options to fit your studio or live-sound production rig. Based on handy DB-25 connections, the Aurora (n) 8-HD's analog I/O is electronically balanced and supports both +4dBU and -10dBV nominal levels. Its AES digital I/O is also transformer coupled and capable of driving 500 feet of cable at 192kHz. What's more, the Aurora (n) 8-HD supports both dual and single-wire AES channel modes.

Fully equipped with convenient front-panel controls

Onboard 32-channel mixer makes complex routing simple

The Aurora (n) 8-HD's 32-channel onboard digital mixer provides you with extensive routing and mixing options.
