Apogee X Firewire 400 – No Longer Available

Expansion card for the RD-16X, Big Ben, DA-16X, Rosetta 800, and Rosetta 200 – provides two S400 FireWire connectors

Product Description

The Apogee X-Series FireWire card gives you the power and convenience of a direct connection to any FireWire equipped computer.  The X-FireWire Card uses an expansion slot in the Rosetts 800 to give users of Logic, Nuendo and other popular software the option of amazing sounding Apogee conversion.  Using Apple’s Core Audio FireWire driver for Macintosh and ASIO drivers for Windows, 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.  (Note: This feature is available for Windows systems only at this time).

Get Connected
With and X-FireWire card installed in an AD-16X, DA-16X, Rosetta 200 or Rosetta 800 you have the power of a professional FireWire connection to your favorite DAW: Logic 7, Nuendo, Cubase, Cakewalk, Live or virtually any native audio production software.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
