KenElevenShadows Posted April 20, 2004 Share Posted April 20, 2004 So I got my Apogee Rosetta 800 the other day. I got it because it seemed like it was cheaper to go ahead and get this unit so I could have some D/A conversion for monitoring and other purposes. I love the Apogee AD16 that I was using (I'm selling it, btw), but really needed D/A badly. As some of you know, I've been in school and have almost no time, but I had to install it and fire it up anyway so I could hear what my Digi001/Pro Tools mixes sounded like...!!! What a *difference* in the monitoring. I've only played a couple of mixes on it so far, but one of the first things that I noticed was that I could hear the reverb effect/tails much more clearly, a very nice indication. The top end was a little brighter, but more importantly, it was more detailed and open as if someone had wiped a layer of mud from the speakers. The bottom end (bass guitar, especially) was more solid and again, more detailed. I know that there's probably better A/D or D/A out there (Prism or Mytek or whatever), but damn, this is a HUGE difference. This'll make monitoring much more pleasurable. I don't know what the difference between the A/D will be between the Rosetta 800 and the AD16, but it probably won't be very much.
