Apogee's Rosetta 200 Now Shipping2-channel converter with unique “CODA, Audio Finishing Module” (October 08, 2004)
Apogee's Rosetta 200
Rosetta 200’s CODA is a trio of tools that includes, Apogee’s Aptomizer (a level normalizer), Sample Rate Conversion (SRC), and UV22HR, Apogee’s legendary dithering technology. With CODA and premium Apogee conversion, the Rosetta 200 provides an end-to-end solution for capturing and maintaining the integrity of high-resolution audio.
“The anticipation for this unit has been incredible and we are very pleased to be able to say that it is now available. We took great care to offer the features, functionality and affordability that our customers were looking for as well as addressing the desire for hi resolution digital processing with CODA”, says Betty Bennett, Co-Founder and CEO of Apogee.
The Rosetta 200 also offers an incredible range of connectivity options with an expansion card slot for Apogee’s new X-Series cards which facilitate direct connection to Pro Tools HD and Mix (X-HD and X-Digi-Mix cards) as well as a direct FireWire connection that supports S800/S400 standards (X-FireWire card).

Apogee Electronics Corporation is a leading manufacturer of digital audio conversion systems for studio professionals and home recording enthusiasts.
Apogee was founded in 1985 and initially made its name designing filters. Later, Apogee's complete conversion systems pushed the envelope of digital audio quality and solved many of the early problems with digital audio technology.
Apogee converters have become regarded as the reference standard for digital audio conversion.
Products such as the award-winning AD-8000 and Trak2 have become the benchmark by which digital audio conversion is judged. A new generation of Apogee products such as the ROSETTA 800, Mini-Me, the revolutionary BIG BEN and the AD-16X & DA-16X promise to extend the Apogee legacy and further advance the art of digital audio.
